About Wilderness Weddings in Kent
Trish and Liam got married at Wilderness Weddings in Kent and whilst this was my first time shooting at this new venue I have to admit, I realised pretty quickly it was going to become one of my favourite venues.
Wilderness Weddings is set in the middle of the gorgeous Kent countrside with 3 potential spots for you to hold your civil or humanist ceremony. The Woodsman Cabin (above), Boat-Zebo both licensed for civil ceremonies and Wilderness Wood.
This isn't your traditional wedding venue. More and more people just want their wedding day to be super relaxed, no stuffy hotels, a chilled party with their friends and family is what they are looking for and Wilderness Weddings venue just ticks that box completely with a chic, festival vibe.
Wilderness Weddings Venue Capacity
Woodsman Cabin - 120 guests / Evening Reception 160 guests
Wilderness Weddings Reception Location
After your ceremony it's a short walk to the reception area which is made up of 3 large tipis in the Woodland Glade which creates a really large dining and entertainment space for you and your guests.
The 3rd tipi has a dance floor area and stage whilst the other 2 tipis are furnished with beautiful wooden tressel tables and benches which perfectly fit the vibe of the venue and make a perfect canvas for you to add your own personal style. There's a Champagne Shack Bar serving your guests local ales and wines and making sure the party gets going.

There are disabled facilities and when I was shooting Trish and Liams wedding the venue organizers were more than happy to transport any elderly or disabled guests around the site by car when needed.
Places to stay
One of the amazing things about Wilderness Weddings is the opportunity for your guests to camp in the middle of the Kent countryside. I'm not talking bring your own tent but glamping in style. Comfy beds, hot showers, bathrooms and kitchen in luxury bell tents. There is capacity for up to 54 people

If glampings not your style then Wilderness Weddings is not far from Canterbury, Whitstable, Ramsgate, all with a huge array of quality hotels
Getting to Wilderness Weddings
Take all of the worry out of your guests finding their way to the venue. Wilderness Weddings works with 3 coach companines who can collect up to 120 guests from their hotel and ferry them to the venue.
The venue has 7 accredited caterers they work with offering all the potential options you could need from BBQ’s, hog roasts, feasting menus, traditional menus, street food, festival style food and ‘Host the Roasts’
Wilderness Weddings Photography
We are blessed in Kent with some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK and Wilderness Weddings absolutely showcases the best of it.
For a photographer it's frankly an absolute dream of a venue to work at. Meadows, woodland, lakes and when the sun sets across the site it's pretty incredible, absoutely the kind of venue I love. I think aswell, this kind of venue tends to attract relaxed couples like Trish and Liam, looking to give their guests a chilled out, fun day.
