We only offer a very simple package which includes accommodation at Tree Top Escape for our wedding couples to enjoy a romantic short break, venue hire of The Nest, in house wedding coordinator to support you throughout and give a personal service and a champagne toast with a selection of canapes.
We believe that every wedding should be unique and that the wedding should be tailored to each couple and their personalities. Rather than offering a complete package we enable couples to pick and choose what they want to make their day perfect. To make it as stress free as possible we have a list of recommended suppliers to make their day seamless and relaxed.
Do you have in-house catering, or preferred suppliers or are couples free to choose their own caterers?
We offer a wide variety of choices in catering and recommend a variety of local suppliers who work with us to make their day stress free.
Can couples supply their own alcohol for the evening? Is there a corkage fee?
We do not have a bar facility so we encourage couples to supply their own alcohol and we do not believe in corkage fees at all.
Tree Top Escape is self catering so we recommend couples organise a shopping order to be delivered on their day of arrival so the housekeeper will unpack it for them, one less thing to worry about!
Do you offer accommodation on site? If so, for how many guests?
Tree Top Escape is the equivalent of the bridal suite and sleeps up to 4 people.

Combining their personal touch and attention to detail they guide and tailor the wedding to suit each couple.
How far in advance can couples or their wedding stylist, florist etc have access to the venue in order to decorate it?
An exclusive venue, couples can access The Nest from the moment they check into Tree Top Escape and can enjoy decorating and preparing for their special day. That is if they choose to decorate the venue which is elegantly decorated surrounded by Wow factor views.

What’s your best advice to couples when choosing their perfect wedding venue?
Remember it is about you, the wedding couple, and your dreams! You cannot please everyone so choose what makes you happy.Take the time to choose the right venue for you as it is the very foundation of your special day and don’t forget to consider customer service as well as the venue itself. Happy hunting!
Any finally, what are your favourite moments from previous wedding you’ve been involved with?
There are so many, each wedding gives the wedding coordinator many happy moments and occasionally – funny anecdotes. One of my favourite moments is when they see each other for the first time, or stroll down the aisle together hand in hand.
There are too many favourite moments and too many funny anecdotes to enumerate but we thank each and every couple for the memories they have given us.
