Best wedding venue Balmer Lawn Hotel Brockenhurst

Balmer Lawn Hotel and Spa, classic country house hotel nestled in the heart of the New Forest, has been named ‘Wedding Venue of the Year’ at a renowned industry awards – triumphing over competition from across the region and being recognised for its pursuit of perfection for every couple's dream day. 

The hotel was the winner in the south central regional category of the prestigious Wedding Industry Awards, recognising the hotel’s commitment to excellence, exceptional service and the creation of unforgettable wedding experiences. 

The recognition reaffirms Balmer Lawn’s standing as a premier destination for those seeking an outstanding and enchanting setting to tie the knot in. Following its recent success, the venue will now go through as a finalist in the national Wedding Industry Awards, which will be held on the 24th January 2024.

The Wedding Industry Awards is an annual event that sets out to find the most outstanding venues and wedding suppliers from across the UK, all judged by a panel of expert and multi-award-winning judges in the wedding industry. The awards’ emphasis is on fostering relationships, celebrating successes, and embracing the joy of being part of a dynamic and thriving sector. 

Balmer Lawn holds regular wedding showcases to exhibit its award-winning venue – which includes a range of luxury spaces to choose from, from the apres ski lodge to the classic wedding breakfast rooms, and its grounds, where wild horses roaming across the woodland backdrop provide the perfect setting for wedding photos. 

Ruth Mundy, Balmer Lawn’s Wedding Executive, said: “We are over the moon to win this award. This recognition speaks volumes about the passion and effort our team puts into every wedding at Balmer Lawn. It's an absolute thrill to see our commitment to crafting magical experiences acknowledged in such a meaningful way. We’re now even more inspired to continue setting new standards of excellence in the world of weddings!” 

The hotel’s most popular wedding package, ‘Everything but the Dress’, includes complimentary use of the Honeymoon Suite on the wedding night, personalised menus, name cards and framed seating plans, as well as 8 hours of wedding photography, a three-course wedding breakfast, and bespoke cake, wedding styling, and flowers – quite literally everything that those planning a wedding would need. 

For those who want a longer wedding, Balmer Lawn has just launched a new package for 2023/24 in response to the rise of weddings spanning across multiple days, The New Forest Retreat – a 3-day, all-inclusive wedding bundle.
