You can work closely with our wonderful and fully trained personal ceremony experts, who can give your day and blessing the highest personal touch, and can help you to write the perfect vows for your day.

Why not host your wedding ceremony in the woodland space! Snuggled among beautiful tall pine trees and lying in an open natural area that can accommodate up to 130 guests seated on the rustic benches and up to 300 standing guests.

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". As always our lovely celebrant and coordinator Jan Shillito made dreams become reality , what a privilege it was to have been part of your special celebrations and thank you for choosing Camp Katur. Good luck for the future.

By Ellen and Josh, on 06 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Mar 2019

We’ve just read it. It’s bloody amazing! Both in tears, happy tears of course!. Honestly, absolutely sensationally heart stopping. Thank you so much! I’m going to be a wreck on the day if my reactions are anything to go by! 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”

Beautiful venue, horrendously organised
Venue Service

By Justine, on 06 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

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.

Thank you for sending us your review. As my new role here at Camp Katur as manager and now over seeing the weddings i can only apologies for your review never being responded to. Thank goodness as you said above it was still the best day of your lives and I truly wish you the best of luck.

We wanted a relaxed outdoors venue
Venue Service

By Shelly & Tom, on 07 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017

Receiving our first draft, it took me a good few attempts to read it out loud to Tom, I was very emotional. The ceremony was wonderful and very personal to us and our families. Jan did a fantastic job at capturing what we wanted to say and conducted the words beautifully. “ “Not only did Jan write and perform a beautiful ceremony, she was wedding co-ordination on the day too. Me being a total control freak, couldn't comprehend how she could be in 3 places at once on such a big estate, but she managed it. Not only did she help us dress the ceremony space, she was delivering breakfasts to the bridal party and orchestrating suppliers arriving all with a cool head.

Another great couple happy with the service love and care provided by our amazing celebrant and coordinator Jan Shillto. Thank you for submitting such a positive review, and we wish you well for the future.

Camp Katur does have a lovely barn
Venue Service

By Jessyka & Lewis, on 07 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017

Camp Katur has the most amazing and quirky glamping accommodation on site. As we were having people travel from overseas and all over the UK we decided to book the entire site for two nights to accommodate all our guests. It was a great way to spend extra time with our guests and drag out the celebrations. It was magical service it was emotional, and was personal to us, it was unique and it was perfect. It was seriously my favourite part of the whole day and it was everything I dreamed of and more. Jan pulled together perfectly all the things that sum us up as a couple - I felt like she climbed inside my head and pulled out exactly what I had imagined it would be in my mind. Everyone was blown away by the standard and variety of accommodation. It really is the most special place , surrounded by trees and stars, it was a dream come true.” I think the amount of tears witnessed speaks for itself!

By Emily & Sean, on 07 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Aug 2014

You made our day perfect and there aren’t enough words to explain how grateful we are to you for putting together our beautiful ceremony and for floating round (I now if probably felt more like sprinting for you, but you looked cool as a cucumber!!) Like a fairy godmother all day and night making everything happen! You are a very special lady and will never forget what you have done for us”
