Camping weddings where the ceremony or reception takes place in the great outdoors, with the option for guests to stay on site, have become very popular in the last decade.
In 2012 we had some of our returning guests book Wild Boar Wood Campsite for an intimate campsite wedding. The couple booked all nine bell tents and had a small humanist ceremony near the old oak tree in the campsite. The wedding guests then had a afternoon barbecue and picnic and spent the weekend relaxing around the campfire. As you can see in the picture the weather Gods didn’t hold off, there was some rain. But with our warden Nigel thinking on his feet and putting up tarps and using our parachute awning, the wedding campers didn’t let that affect their special day.
In 2013 we had a campsite wedding booked at Beech Estate Campsite. These wedding campers also booked the whole campsite, booked all the bell tents and arranged for extra bell tents to be put up for all their guests. It was a family-based camping wedding in the woods, with a big barbecue and friends celebrating around the campfire.
Please contact us by calling the office on 01273 980218 if you are interested in holding a camping wedding or if you want a group booking to take over the the whole campsite for another type of special event. Please remember though, we have a no electronic music policy to respect our neighbours (even though they are a distance away – noise carries). So it’s acoustic music only.
