Hay bales sofas on faded Persian rugs. An acoustic band playing under a canopy of rustling forest leaves. Twinkling lights strung between white Bell tents.
Rustic woodland weddings have a charm of their own and are one of the hottest trends for couples getting married in 2017.
Our new Wedding Bales package allows you to create the perfect field wedding in the heart of the New Forest.
The charm of a woodland wedding is its quaint and quirky informality – but we think a touch of luxury never goes amiss, and Wedding Bales allows you to celebrate the beauty of nature in a peaceful rural setting while still enjoying the same level of first class service you’ll find in Careys Manor itself.
We’ll set up hay bale sofas and rustic benches around a marquee on a private field next to our hotel. Guests can enjoy luscious ice creams from a vintage bicycle, and capture memories of their special occasion in a rustic photo booth.
Delicious food is key, and the bride and groom can choose from a selection of tempting wedding breakfasts, including whole roast lamb shoulder with tzatziki, hummus, salsa and salads, a hog roast with dips and salads, roast spatchcock chicken with lemon, garlic and rosemary, and a slow-cooked whole pork shoulder.
Our wedding coordinator, Françoise
Gysemans, believes this exciting new venture will provide an enviable, intimate setting away from hotel guests and the public, and is keen to show off all the benefits of our Wedding Bales package
at a Wedding Open Day
