I met up with Gemma Lewis, the Balmer Lawn‘s dedicated Wedding Co-Ordinator to find out a little more about this fantastic wedding venue in the New Forest. Situated in Brockenhurst in the heart of the New Forest, the Balmer Lawn is a 4 star hotel that backs onto the beautiful New Forest near by the Lymington River.
Built originally in the mid 1800’s as a hunting lodge, the Balmer Lawn is a classic Country House Hotel who emphasize their comfort and warm courteous service and this was exactly how I was greeted by Gemma. The Balmer Lawn offer a completely bespoke wedding service to their guests, catering for weddings from 2 people to 110 people and the main thing that impressed me about the Balmer Lawn, apart from Gemma’s “can do” attitude, was no matter what size wedding party you are planning the rooms AND THE PRIVATE GARDENS attached to those rooms are all unique, stylish and despite the 1800’s heritage, modernly styled.
There is a great feel when wandering around the Balmer Lawn, a grand staircase from which to make your entrance and fantastic decorations including the beautiful baby grand piano. Even though the Balmer Lawn is a 4 star hotel it’s definitely not a stuffy, unwelcoming venue and I would highly recommend calling Gemma to arrange a visit to the hotel to find out more. Gemma’s number is 01590 608044.
