September 2019

It was really good getting in touch with them, I spoke with the coordinator Bev who was really good with emails and responded straight away, and she took care of everything and gave me such good suggestions with suppliers and what I could do. She was really responsive, and I ended up going with all of her suggestions! She thought about everything, even things I hadn't even thought of, which was amazing! The whole place ended up looking exactly like what I wanted without me knowing what I wanted originally! She knew my budget and worked well with what I told her.

The view is incredible, our guests loved the food, it was just delicious and the staff were so polite and professional. Thank you again to Bev and the lovely staff at Forest edge for everything and making sure our wedding was perfect, we will be back for sure! Carly & Nate :)

Thank you so much to Bev and Rob at Forest Edge, they both made our wedding day amazing. Everyone commented on how stunning the room looked along with the amazing views, they are breath taking. The food is delicious. It is a perfect location for a wedding or even a party or something to eat. Make sure you go for a look at least.

should i view my venue in person before booking, even if its over 4 hour drive away?

Forest Edge

I personally think that you should view the venue, it can be hard to determine the actual feel for the venue unless you experience that first hand. 

do i have to book and pay for two venues if theres risk of rain?

or do venues usually have a backup option free of charge?

Forest Edge

No the ceremony is included in the price, we determine which area will be best obn the day but if we are a little unsure always give you a quick call.
