Bartley Lodge Hotel – Cadnam
Bartley Lodge is one of our favourite all day wedding venues. It’s a quaint, atmospheric building nestling at the end of a quiet drive, which has benefitted from a recent extension and complete refit, so is currently one of the best options for your New Forest wedding.
We think it’s great as it has everything you could want for a relaxed and well organised wedding. Bartley Lodge has a light wedding ceremony room as well as a dark wedding breakfast and evening function room. It has a lovely bar and a number of cosy seating areas to choose from. It sits in beautiful grounds which are accessible from the function rooms, so guests can enjoy changing scenery throughout the day. This hotel has plenty of rooms for overnight guests and also boasts a swimming pool, so they can have a dip too. On a practical note, its proximity to the M27 makes it especially easy for out of town guests to access.
Popular optional extras for Bartley include:
LED uplighting: This is only really effective for the ceremony as the walls in the function suite are very dark. We do however use the uplighters as a wash, adding colour and ambiance for the evening DJ set.
Dancing on the clouds: Bartley Lodge is probably the best venue for dancing on the clouds due to the layout and dark walls/ceiling so it has an amazing contrast. We tend to use the uplighters on white to light up the dry ice. It quite simply looks incredible!
Mirrorball: Again this venue is also one of the best examples for our mirrorball. Really brightens it all up.
TV/slideshow: We tend to do a lot of slideshows using our TV at Bartley Lodge. This is ideal in the bar area at the bottom. We will set this up in the morning, so it gives your guests something to watch during the drinks and evening function.
Photo Booth: Keeping guests in the function room is trickier at Bartley Lodge because they will often spend time in the beautiful gardens and the seating areas along the front of the hotel. Our Photo Booth helps to entice people into the function room earlier and gives guests something else to watch (as it’s open).
Ceremony music and all day hosting: we do a lot of all-days at Bartley. This is probably best described here.
