New Forest Wedding Venues

The New Forest is one of the largest unenclosed pasture lands, heathland and forest in the south of England, which covers the southwest of Hampshire and southern Wiltshire. William the Conqueror proclaimed the area as a royal forest, and it even features in the Domesday Book. Millions of visitors flock to the New Forest each year, all eager to explore and catch a glimpse of the wildlife, including deer, ponies and cattle. One of the prettiest villages in the New Forest is Beaulieu, which means ‘beautiful place’ and fits it perfectly.
