Glamping sites that are now offering weddings are proving to be very popular amongst the choice of wedding venues this summer, says Chris Dyke from Mill Farm Glamping in Wiltshire

Glamping is a popular form of luxury camping which encompasses homely comforts with luxurious accommodation in beautiful countryside settings. Many people choose to go glamping as they love the outdoors, but don’t necessarily love leaving all their mod cons at home. The much-loved glamping holiday is now proving to be a popular wedding venue too!

One of the best things about choosing to have your wedding on a glamping site is that it is a beautiful blank canvas. Here at Mill Farm we have lots of open space where you can really use your imagination to create the wedding of your dreams. There is lots of space generally at glamping sites that can cater for marquees, tents, live music etc. So whatever wacky ideas you are dreaming of (mechanical bull ride anyone?), chances are a glamping wedding can create the magic wedding day you are after.

The blank canvas allows you to create any theme wedding which you would like. Popular choices include festival and traditional British themes. Festival weddings with live music, food stalls and dancing into the night are becoming a really popular type of wedding to have. Equally the quintessential British theme with lots of flowers, fairy lights in the marquee and bunting all over the place is also a fabulous choice.

One of the many bonuses of having a glamping wedding is that there is accommodation right on your doorstop after you have had your celebrations. With glamping sites across the UK offering all sorts of luxury accommodation, you can relax knowing your guests will really enjoy retiring to beautiful accommodation after the festivities.

This accommodation also allows you to make more of a weekend out of your wedding. This is a perfect idea if you are planning a festival themed wedding! Booking the site for the whole weekend can really let you celebrate properly with all your loved ones. Waking up and enjoying your first breakfast as a married couple with all of your friends and family really is a lovely way to begin married life.

Another benefit of a glamping wedding is the beautiful setting. The British countryside will create a relaxing and picturesque setting away from the hustle and bustle of town centres. The beautiful backdrop will also lend a hand to creating a beautiful setting to the wedding photos!

A glamping wedding is the new choice of alternative venue. You can make it yours and really personalise the event exactly how you’d dreamed. Your friends and family will love staying in luxury accommodation and it really will be a wedding that they will never forget.
