A local elopement. fforest's most intimate wedding ceremony to date

At the end of last Summer our very specials friends decided to surprise us all by choosing to elope at fforest farm. Less of a surprise for some of the fforest elves who had the real pleasure of witnessing such a beautiful and happy occasion.

A perfectly sunny day welcomed the bride & groom and their family & friends to fforest farm that day. Will, Kate and baby Bert did well to keep such big news a secret, choosing to tie the knot in front of just 14 of their closest family & friends. The ceremony was held in the cosy Bwthyn pub; fires lit, candles glowing, a warmth emanating from all around.

"We decided we wanted to be married but didn’t really want a huge wedding. We chose fforest because its like
home from home, really relaxed and beautiful, lots of outside space and amazing food. We liked the tiny intimate space of the pub it just felt really special."

- Kate, the bride

After confetti and a drinks reception, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a picnic lunch in the dining room of the Lodge; simple, delicious food and a tower of fresh macarons as an alternative wedding cake for dessert.

The day seemed effortless, both for Will & Kate and for the fforest elves.

We're not sure if it was Will & Kate's apparent relaxed attitude towards getting hitched, or perhaps it was their choice to do it in the simplest, most intimate way... Whatever it was, we've decided that magic happened when these two lovely people chose to celebrate love & life in their own, perfect way.

"It was the perfect little wedding for us at this moment, and we have planned a party 13 months later in the Cedar Barn! You need a little dancing at a wedding!"
