At fforest farm, across its 200 acres, a choice of event spaces from giant hat tipis, garden pavilions, dining & party barns and a tiny stone pub are exclusively yours for the whole wedding weekend.
Read a bit about the different spaces available at fforest farm...
The giant hat tipi
Proudly standing on the vast lawn in front of the Lodge, the Giant Hat Tipi is perhaps the most popular venue for humanist ceremonies. Adorned with twinkling lights and candle chandeliers, the wonder of this venue is distinct inside as well as out.
The immediate surrounding landscape is recognised by many as the most picturesque location of fforest farm.
This is perhaps why many couples choose to have their wedding photos on the lawn or in the glorious wheat field just a stones throw from the Tipi. With the option to open up the sides to let in more light, the Tipi can transform your wedding into an outdoor occasion yet still keep you warm and cosy under canvas.
The Cedar Barn
Newly renovated and available to host larger wedding parties, the Cedar Barn boasts high ceilings, a tin roof, a concrete floor and copper pillars that all create the feel of an industrial warehouse. However the reality is much softer; with the addition of cedar-clad walls, bespoke fforest oak chandeliers and huge steel-framed windows, the barn creates an openness as well as a cosiness all at once.
It's warm and welcoming. Exactly what we strived for when creating this huge space.
The Barn offers our guests the chance to host a wedding supper for large parties comfortably, yet still keeping that all-important intimacy and closeness.
The Lodge Barn
One of three spaces licensed for civil ceremonies on site, the split level Lodge Barn has always been a favourite for its open space. Rows of tables and benches make it a perfect venue to host a high-tea party or wedding supper for all guests.
It's a wholly intimate space in that the size of the barn never affects the cosy atmosphere inside.
Here you have the choice to decorate the barn's high beams. Many couples choose rows of bunting & fairy lights or flowers & foliage overhead.
The Garden Pavilion
Another licensed site, the open-sided Garden Pavilion is both an inside & outside space with the option to have guests seated outside whilst they watch the civil ceremony that's under cover.
A unique space in that it can bring the actual ceremony out into the open air.
The space can be easily reverted back to its normal setting: wooden arm chairs that circle around a warming fire bowl. A place for guests to sit, chat & relax.
The Bwthyn Pub
Civil ceremonies are most commonly held in our 200 year old stone pub. Its not surprising our brides & grooms are so taken by the Bwthyn: a small space reserved for intimate ceremonies where the immediate family and friends can witness the marriage.
Ceremonies in the Bwthyn are always warming.
A lot of love is held between these four walls.
Marry infront of the closest family & friends then celebrate with the whole wedding party afterwards. The Bwthyn's fully stocked bar is always a welcome addition.
We've only ever had one brave couple who chose the old Quarry as a location for their ceremony at fforest farm. We laid out chairs and created a stone altar, the overall effect was truly magical.
A favourite place for wedding photos thanks to the dramatic slate backdrop and surrounding greenery.
We would love to see another couple choose this setup for their wedding day. Reserved for the bold and brave.
