We are thrilled to be the preferred caterers for the newest addition to wedding venues in the New Forest, Hampshire – Minstead Lodge!
Minstead Lodge is set in the New Forest National Park, with the marquee for your wedding celebrations nestled amongst the trees in the enclosure, accessed via a short tree lined walk from the main car park and lodge. The marquee provides a blank canvas, which can be transformed and personalised to any theme or décor – the possibilities are endless!
The beautiful grounds to the side and the rear of the lodge provide a variety of locations for intimate wedding photography. Heading back up to the marquee, couples can make use of the arched trees encasing a secret staircase, as well as the tree lined drive leading from the main entrance to the marquee site.
This fantastic venue is opening its doors to the newlyweds of 2017 & 2018, to showcase its grounds in order to generate funds to support the Minstead Training Trust – a social enterprise charity based at the Lodge. The Trust supports people with learning disabilities to lead more independent and fulfilling lives. By choosing Minstead Lodge, you are making a real difference to someone’s life.
Minstead Lodge will be opening its doors for free entry to its first Wedding Showcase on Sunday 9th October 2017 from 11am – 3pm.
Visitors will have the chance to view the stunning grounds and the lodge as well as meet us – Ginger Catering – the exclusive caterers, a wedding PA service provided by Planning by Laurel and the marquee company, Premium Marquees. In addition, there will be a wide variety of industry professionals including VW Wedding Car Hire from Dorset Dubhire, Charly Woodhouse Wedding Photography, Helena Larsen of Sugar Paint Make up, Light Nights providing external lighting to transform the grounds at night, Venue décor by Pomp & Petals and Arcade Flowers.

Ginger Catering Company will be providing a selection of tasty tipples to accompany the sumptuous canapes that we hope you will enjoy trying on the day! We will of course be on hand to talk you through the planning of your wedding and offer advice on all aspects of your reception – our unique and personalised service extends beyond just being your caterer!
The entry is free and the showcase will provide ideas and inspiration, even if you already have a wedding venue booked for 2017/2018.
