The Glade Weddings

Marquee Wedding Venue in the Forest at Rosliston, near Swadlincote in Derbyshire


Situated in a tranquil forest enclave, The Glade at Rosliston in Derbyshire is a picturesque haven, enveloped by lush, leafy trees, vibrant flowers and shrubs and accessible via a meandering path that opens into a sprawling green expanse. At its heart, a pristine white marquee stands as an elegant venue, creating an idyllic backdrop for exchanging vows amidst loved ones. A charming wooden pagoda, officially designated for ceremonies, offers a prime view for guests, with the option to enhance the moment with a red carpet for the ceremonial walk.

The marquee's interior is gracefully adorned with ivory drapes and delicate fairy lights, setting a magical atmosphere that deepens into the evening, complemented by enchanting outdoor lighting. Its glass frontage invites the beauty of the outdoors in, bathing the space in natural light.

Understanding the uniqueness of every couple, they provide personalised services to craft a celebration that mirrors your unique bond. Their dedicated Wedding and Venue Manager collaborates closely with couples to realise their vision, ensuring unparalleled service from the first enquiry to the culmination of your wedding day. They accommodate pre-event setup and post-event collections for convenience too.

The venue accommodates up to 250 guests, offering both outdoor and indoor seating, with options for traditional or more relaxed dining setups. A private dressing room is also available, perfect for pre-ceremony preparations.

Beyond the venue, Rosliston Forestry Centre features six sustainable, timber lodges for guest accommodation, nestled in a secluded woodland spot, offering a restful retreat.

The Glade, set within the enchanting Rosliston Forestry area, provides numerous stunning locations for capturing timeless photographs.

Exclusive catering by Saffron Catering ensures a memorable dining experience, with over a decade of expertise in weddings and events. Their caterers specialise in a range of culinary options, from formal wedding breakfasts to casual BBQs, all crafted with seasonal, locally sourced ingredients.

This beautiful setting offers the perfect blend of rustic charm and adaptable elegance for a truly bespoke wedding, making The Glade a concealed treasure for your celebration.


Jules - "Magical in every way! We could not have asked for a better day and better service. The forest setting was our ideal location and all of the staff were impeccable - excellent communication, commitment to detail and they totally got the whole vibe we were going for. We had Afternoon Tea and it’s one of the best I’ve ever tasted - and I’ve had a lot of Afternoon Teas at some fancy places! - and our guests are still talking about the evening food! We couldn’t have asked for anything more, other than the opportunity to do it every day!"

Rian - "Highly Recommended. My husband and I got married at the Glade in 2021. The staff couldn't have been more helpful during the process. We had to reschedule twice because of the pandemic and the staff were understanding and flexible. The venue was a beautiful mix of warm indoor space in the marquee and open space surrounded by the woods. The pavilion for the ceremony added a wonderful touch. As the Glade also partnered with Saffron Catering, organising the food was made simple, with plenty of options to choose from. The Rosliston Forestry Centre cabins adjacent to the venue made a lovely place for us to stay for a few nights around the wedding itself so we didn't have to worry about travel on the day, and had a private place to relax amidst all the hype. Highly recommended!"
