By  | 

There’s nothing like a trek around your favourite forest to clear your head and press the reset button, so why not jump on the woodland wonder train and say “I Do” in this enchanting place as well?

We’ve seen some fabulous forest wedding ceremonies and woodland-themed soirees already this year, and we predict they will be just as popular in 2017. Remember Pamela and Kenneth’s glam garden party in the garden of the Station House Hotel? We think they nailed the magical forest look! So if this super dreamy wonderland sounds about right for your day, here’s 13 ideas to help you pull off a magical woodland wedding.
