UPDATED! My top 6 venues to get married in The New Forest, Hampshire

I simply love the New Forest.  I grew up in Lyndhurst, moved to Southampton then moved back to Lymington (edge of the New Forest)  as both my husband and myself missed the forest too much.  It’s no surprise that so many couples want to get married in this beautiful part of the country, and to have that stunning scenery as a backdrop to their wedding.  After working in the wedding industry for some time now, and having the great opportunity of noseying around so many venues I have picked my top 10 for those that are playing with the idea of a New Forest wedding.

1.  The Master Builders at Buckler’s Hard – Bucklers Hard, Beaulieu, Hampshire SO42 7XB.

2. The Montagu Arms Hotel, Beaulieu – 1 Palace Lane Beaulieu Brockenhurst SO42 7YG.

3. Hale Park – Hale, Fordingbridge, Hants, SP6 2RF

Somerley House and me…

Many of you may have already seen that I am the personally selected wedding makeup artist for the quintessentially grand estate that is Somerley House, located in Ringwood.  And I am enormously proud of that fact.  This private estate is opening its doors wide open to weddings and events – I honestly can’t think of a better, more beautiful place to have a wedding that has such a grand feeling to it.

And I am totally ready to greet every single bride who decides to get married at Somerley with some equally perfect bridal makeup! x
