What's Included

Here at Upthorpe Wood, we host just 15 unique woodland weddings per year, ensuring that each and every wedding is spectacular!

Our weddings are hosted between May-September and only at weekends.  All weekends are priced at the same basic rate, excluding Bank Holidays.  Our maximum guest numbers for undercover dining are 100.

Although we class ourselves as dry hire, we feel that there are facilities which need to be included to make your wedding planning easier, so unlike other dry hire venues you'll find lots more included in the price.  Bespoke prices are available, as are additional hours.  Did you know we hire the woodland for all sorts of functions from birthday celebrations and private dining to christenings?

Friday 10am-4pm (Set Up)

Saturday 9.30am-11.30pm

Sunday 8.30am-11.30am (Clear Away)

That's a pretty cool deal for a dry hire venue.  With 2 barns and a chill out lounge, there's certainly more than enough undercover areas to put to rest the 'What if it rains?' question.

That leaves you to figure out whether you require a legal ceremony or blessing, deciding on your catering and Bar requirements and furniture, decor and planning your entertainment.
