In the UK my background was in floral design, so I became very involved in weddings naturally. Forest Meadow Retreat lends itself beautifully to intimate outdoor weddings (or ‘micro weddings’ as they have been dubbed). So, we have designed some fairy-tale features and put together a great wedding package for you and your family. These both play to the small and intimate nature of the site, but also to our strong core values about nature, wildlife and conservation.
Your Retreat Wedding
Setting the scene
Picture this, your closest family and friends happily ensconced in our fully furnished bell tents, plenty of parking for guests to arrive for an afternoon of celebration. The wildflower garden is in bloom and the tree-lined ceremony space is decked in lights and wildflower arrangements.
Our newly planted Silver Birch and Bay circle is a beautiful, intimate and informal space to make those special vows to each other. When it’s not being used for special occasions there is a fire pit, rustic log benches and night lights providing you with a calm atmosphere to relax and watch the stars.
The marquee is decorated to suit your colours and a buffet and champagne breakfast are all catered for. If you have any specific dietary requirements, we can accommodate these. We are very experienced with vegetarian and vegan options in particular.
I am so excited that I can grow flowers here to create my ‘wild side floral designs’ exclusively for special events taking place here at the retreat. Several experienced people in the wedding industry have commented how having flowers grown on site for your wedding is such a personal touch and great for the environment. I couldn’t agree more!
When our love for nature and special moments for our guests can combine, it reminds us why we chose this new life in France.
