Camp Katur's reply:Another lovely couple that tied the knot here at Camp Katur and made even more special that they also stared in a TV series "say yes to the dress".

We’re so happy with it and it captures exactly what we wanted.
We love it.”
The ceremony & co-ordination was all carried our by Jan Shillito who we cannot thank enough for the amazing work and time that went into making our day perfect we had an in-depth questionnaire and then a consultation which helped us to express how we felt on paper and brought back good memories that we to the back of our minds. Jan then sent us drafts of our script to feedback on.. the only words we could use to describe the first read was “wow”. Just by reading the script remind us why we hadn’t gone for a more traditional church or register office ceremony, we knew then it was going to be a ceremony like no other any of our gusts had ever been to. The ceremony was so personal to us, covering how we met, out thoughts and feeling towards one another, our families, those we have lost and reading perfectly suited to us. There was not a dry eye throughout, it captured everyone’s emotions just as we’d expected and everyone has been saying ever since they never been to such a surreal different and beautiful wedding” Jan Made it everything we’d dreamed of and more”
Camp Katur's reply:Wow what a lovely review and a truly beautiful couple to work with it was a pleasure to have worked with you both on your special day.

Beautiful venue, horrendously organised
Our wedding day at Camp Katur was of course the best day of our lives but I fear it could have gone very differently. The venue itself is stunning and was the perfect location for us but the whole planning process was a complete shambles. The venue continuously gave us mixed messages to the point of outright lying to us and I spent most of the run up to the wedding in tears because I didn't trust they'd be able to pull it off. If you want to do things slightly different to the norm, they don't seem to have a single clue what they are doing.Sent on 06/11/2018
