An absolutely beautiful outdoor wedding celebration for today’s ‘Magic Seven’ - I absolutely loved being part of Jenna and Tom’s Camp Katur tipi wedding in North Yorkshire. They had a personalised woodland ceremony before eating and celebrating in a nearby tipi in the grounds of Camp Katur - a glamping site which meant that guests could stay nearby after the party had finished.
“We knew from the beginning that we wanted to get married outside, but had no idea of places/venues. We looked over in the Lake District and none of them felt quite right. Then, we found Camp Katur on the Internet and excited by the prospect of glamping, we went to have a look around. Needless to say, it was perfect.
The meadow on the site is surrounded by numerous hobbit pods, safari tents, geodeomes, bell tents and teepees. Our family and friends took up all the accommodation – it was so much fun and exactly as we imagined it: informal and festival-like.”
“We decorated the teepees with bunting, painted jars and candles to create a cosy atmosphere. With this, we also had fairy lights around the dance floor to give it a magical feel.
The tables each had a mirror in the centre on which a bowl of natural, wild flowers was placed. Candles, handmade napkins and some homemade strawberry and lemon cello (courtesy of the groom) were also placed on the tables. Our seating plan and order of ceremony boards were created by me (the bride) and we used old, vintage suitcase for cards and presents. Our dessert table was decorated with vintage cups and crockery. We also has a chill out area filled with sofas, flowers and our guestbook.”
I chose these seven images because they really sum up how relaxed the day was and gives a real feel for what these two are like.. it was just perfect and all so personal to them. I hope to be back for a wedding at Camp Katur in the future - an amazing setting for an outdoor wedding. Enjoy!
