• Registry Office Wedding Alternative - Exclusive Venue Only Wedding

    “Unique”, “Exclusive” and “one of a kind” are just some of the words guests have used to describe our intimate and exclusive wedding venue “The Nest” at Tree Top Escape.

    The Nest is approached via a wooden walkway which doubles as a very romantic and picturesque aisle. Inside, calm and muted colours give way to the dramatic floor to ceiling glass doors on two sides which can be fully opened. This, together with the wrap-around clear glass balustrade, gives an illusion of floating above the trees - an apt feeling for your special day, we think you’ll agree. You can enjoy a wedding for you and your partner (we are always happy to be a witness) or invite up to 6 guests. With doors opened or closed, whatever the season, the glorious countryside provides an exceptional natural backdrop to your unique destination wedding.

    Enjoy a venue only wedding at Tree Top Escape on a Monday or Friday. Unlike a registry office, you can use the meadow room to get ready before hand and enjoy the Nest, Meadow room and grounds until 3pm. It's all yours for total exclusive use. No other weddings will take place that day!
