Think about Easy Access for all. A wedding in the woods can often ring alarm bells.

Fortunately, our woodland and enchanted Tree ceremonies are much more accessible than you think. It's all about doing your research, knowing what you want and who you will have joining you. The small wedding venue we use is disability-friendly and is quite accessible for most ages and mobility levels as it is just a very short walk from the parking area.
Planning your Special Day
When planning your forest or woodland wedding, make sure you take into account other important things like licensing, season, time of day and your outfit, all of which we have covered in our other blog posts.
