The New Forest Showcase at Balmer Lawn on the 15th November was a fabulous success. As the temperature is dropping and everyone is starting to feel the chill of winter, we decided to welcome visitors into our own little winter wonderland held in our Beaulieu Suite.
With a snow machine on the terrace, hot chocolate & gingerbread man station, stunning Christmas tree and decorations, winter cakes on display, mulled cider and beautifully decorated floral centerpieces tying the whole theme together, our Beaulieu suite looked absolutely stunning, fit for any winter bride or groom.

After 5 and a half years of working at the Balmer Lawn, we regret to announce that today is our Wedding Coordinator, Francesca's last day.
Fran has worked in many departments of the hotel and has achieved a lot in the time she's been here. Taking over the Wedding Coordinator role and placing the Balmer Lawn on the Wedding Venue map, Francesca will be greatly missed by all.
We would also like to welcome our new Wedding Coordinator, Kate Hayne, to the team, we believe she will continue to succeed and support all couples on their wedding journey.

This October we were working with Elaine Husband to host a Charity Ball fundraiser for the Help For Heroes Charity.
This was our second time hosting this popular gala dinner with our first event taking place in October 2013. With 340 guests attending we had a very large task on our hands to accommodate and feed all guests by 9pm ready for the party to start with a live auction, live band, fire show, disco and photobooth. Fortunately we had over 40 members of staff on hand who were complemented on their fantastic customer service skills by a number of guests that evening.

We were recently delighted to welcome a group of individuals from the Science of Happiness, Wellbeing, Strength and Laughter to the Balmer Lawn Hotel for a community event. We were also delighted to find out that the group had produced a fantastic video during their time with us. The video filmed with a drone shows some fantastic aerial shots of the Hotel and we think really emphasises we are right in the heart of the New Forest National Park.
