Minstead Lodge, nestled in the heart of the New Forest, has been named Best UK Wedding Venue at the UK Weddings and Honeymoons (UKWH) Awards 2024 

The awards evening was held at the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, on 29 February and hosted by Louise Roe, previous News Editor for Vogue.com. 

After being selected as a finalist in this highly competitive category, Minstead Lodge emerged victorious, showcasing its charm, exceptional service and dedication to creating unforgettable wedding experiences. 

The win not only brings well-deserved recognition but also opens exciting new opportunities for Minstead Lodge in its work supporting people with learning disabilities.

Minstead Lodge is not just a venue; it is a place with purpose. As part of Minstead Trust, every event booked at the Lodge contributes to the vital work of supporting people with learning disabilities to achieve greater independence and live happier, healthier lives.

Minstead Trust supports more than 300 people along the south coast from Poole to Portsmouth, including through five social enterprises of which Minstead Lodge is one.
