We honestly had the the best day of our lives and while you really can’t go past the venue, it’s so spectacular and special - definitely one of a kind, it was all of you that made it for us! You were all so lovely, fun and relaxed, and made us feel like part of the forest weddings family - thanks so much!!!

Forest Weddings is the most stunning, magical setting you could imagine 😍 Thank you for bringing our fairytale wedding to life ✨
Michelle & the team at Forest Weddings go above & beyond. We waited 8 months to view the venue due to lockdowns, & when we finally did we both fell in love with the place (and Michelle!).
So much so, we booked our date then and there, 7 weeks out 😅 Michelle assured me it could be done, made sure I got all my major vendors locked in asap and the rest was a breeze.
Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be and more. A lot of the guests stayed and we had breakfast on the deck the next morning, this was a great opportunity to debrief and share stories of the night
I wish I could get married there over and over again!!

As newlyweds who had the most incredible and magical wedding at Forest Weddings in Kinglake, we will always recommend them to everyone we know! From the moment we stepped foot on their flourishing venue, we were blown away by the beautiful landscape, the lush trees and foliage, and the celebration of our Australian bushland. We felt an instant connection to Michelle and Col, who made us feel very welcome and like family. . .
The natural bushland setting is breathtakingly beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop for our special day. On the day of our wedding, the team went above and beyond to ensure that everything ran smoothly, from the setup, styling and décor, coordinating with our vendors, to making sure that our guests were comfortable and had everything they needed. This for us is so important and stands out as one of the most essential things to keep our minds at ease during the big day, the exceptional service and friendly faces made it all the more special.
If you’re looking for a truly unforgettable wedding experience with the most caring team, this is the perfect place to make your wedding dreams a reality. Thank you Forest Weddings for making our day so special and unforgettable!

We had THE MOST MAGICAL weekend of our lives and could not have found a better place to celebrate our love! From the first time we arrived and had Col show us the beautiful spaces – it was largely Col’s love for the place and it was so clear to us that everyone at Forest Weddings would do everything they could to make our day as special as possible. Your beautiful site also ticked more than all our boxes – a way to have everyone in one place for the whole weekend, stunning nature (although we had no idea just how stunning), and an attitude that made us feel like family. ♡
We had so many compliments from so many people – even our celebrant said that it was one of the best weddings she’s been to, and absolutely everyone was blown away by the beauty and vibe of Forest Weddings! Our experience of Forest Weddings was that you were there for us with any and everything! Letting us take over but doing so much in the background that I’m sure most of the guests were completely unaware of. You took care of everything and took all of the pressure off our shoulders so we could enjoy all of the love from everyone at our wedding. ♡ We felt so incredibly lucky to have found you and hope that the abundance of love that we felt from everyone over the weekend will linger in your beautiful forest for years to come!

We loved working with Mich and Col, who were genuinely invested in us having the time of our lives and also supporting people who are just getting into the wedding industry. They were so flexible and made the process of organising so easy and stress-free.
Forest Weddings is the ultimate wedding venue. Thanks to the incredible support of Michelle and Colin, we were able take our guests on a unique journey through the forest filled with love. Our ceremony was outside in the natural surrounds. Saying our vows amidst soaring gums and vibrant green ferns with rays of sunshine streaming through the forest, it was truly a magical moment and one we will never forget.
Our wedding journey with Michelle and Donna at Forest Weddings was nothing short of extraordinary, and it's with immense pleasure that we share our heartfelt gratitude for their service. From the moment we set foot at Forest Weddings, we knew we had found our perfect venue, and it turned out to be the best decision we made for our special day. Donna and Michelle welcomed us with open arms, creating an environment that felt both professional and personal. Their efficiency in communication was noteworthy, ensuring that every detail of our vision was not just understood but meticulously brought to life in a unique and meaningful way. What set Forest Weddings apart was the delicate balance of experience and personalised attention. Despite undoubtedly having hosted countless weddings, Forest Weddings made us feel like ours was the only wedding they had ever had. Our wedding day was nothing short of perfection, thanks to the idyllic forest scenery they provided for the ceremony. The DIY options and festival vibes for the reception were exactly what we envisioned, creating an atmosphere that resonated with the spirit of our celebration. The ability for all our guests to stay overnight and for the wedding party to stay the night before was a game-changer, especially for our interstate travellers. Forest Weddings not only hosted our wedding but curated an entire experience, including an insane breakfast the next day that left everyone raving. We cannot express enough gratitude to Michelle, Donna, and the entire Forest Weddings team for turning our dreams into a reality. Their commitment to creating a magical, unique experience is unparalleled, and we highly, highly recommend them to any couple seeking a venue that goes beyond expectations. Forest Weddings made our day unforgettable, and we are forever thankful for their outstanding service
