As soon as we stepped into Longton Wood we knew it was the perfect venue for us. Not only is it just. so. beautiful, but it’s also in an absolutely perfect location and gives so much opportunity for freedom to create a truly unique day exactly the way you want it. We started excitedly planning the moment we drove away down the track from our first viewing!

It doesn’t feel fair to call Longton Wood a blank canvas venue when the woodland gives such a stunning surround to whatever you want to bring in. We loved that we could build an event there that was truly unique to us but that Longton also provides the bits that tend to be a bit trickier and not very exciting to pick! - bathrooms, lighting generator etc.

We really appreciated how fantastic Jennifer, the owner, was to work with. Her ethos seems to match her venue perfectly, she truly gave us the space and freedom to make the weekend as we wanted it - whilst also being incredibly helpful (and calm!) whenever we had questions/worries.

Our guests all had a fantastic time - people are still talking about how great our venue was, months later! We couldn’t have loved the whole day more! At Longton we were able to have exactly the day and evening we hoped for, from the moment we walked down the aisle to the small hours of the morning sitting around the firepit. It went far too fast but we wouldn’t change a thing.

We can’t imagine our wedding having been anywhere else. Thank you Longton!

Longton Wood was our dream wedding venue from the moment we viewed it. The spectacular woodland surroundings provided the perfect place to get married & celebrate with all our family and friends. The ‘blank canvas’ nature of Longton Wood allowed us to be creative & curate a day that was immensely personal to us! Jennifer (the owner) was always on hand to answer queries & help us when required. We would highly recommend Longton Wood as a wedding venue! ❤️

We fell in love with the place on a rainy day in October 2019 when we attended a wedding fair here. The magic of the whole venue is something you have to see to believe. We were delayed due to Covid and finally had our big day back in July. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a more stunning setting. The ability to have every detail exactly how we wanted allowed us to create our perfect day. Every guest was wowed by the surroundings and couldn’t quite believe that this was nestled deep into the trees. Jenny had been so helpful from the word go and even on the days before and after, she was on hand for anything us and our suppliers needed. I cannot recommend enough that you book a viewing at this venue, you won’t be disappointed.

We had our wedding here in May 2022! It was the most incredible venue, bluebells everywhere. Jenny was wonderful throughout the process! Highly recommend. It is such a special place!

We had a festival themed wedding at Longton Wood in June at the venue for this is just perfect! It's an enchanting woodland, set out perfectly for the ceremony, reception and glamping. All the walkways are lit up beautifully with festoon lighting, there's a fun little picture trail, a giant swing, a cosy firepit and practical bits too like toilets, showers, a kitchenette and little wooden stalls dotted around. Jenny is great to work with too. We highly recommend Longton Wood for a woodland wedding - everyone loved it!

We were married at Longton Woods on the 31st July. We had originally planned to be married the year previous, but as it did for many, Covid changed our plans!
As soon as we originally saw the venue we knew it was the one for us. The space is beautiful and enchanting, and as the venue is dry hire we could shape our day in to what we wanted.

Throughout postponing, Jennifer kept communication and was extremely helpful with any questions we asked! During the year the venue also added a generator and bathrooms and showers, which made the glamping an easy choice!

Despite rain the day before and after, the woods were beautiful, and all of our guests loved the space and how different it was. I think they were also grateful for the entire event being outside as it made them feel a little safer during Covid.

We can't wait for our photos, but the preview ones already show how beautiful the space is!

Thanks to Jennifer, and good luck for the future!!
