When we are not writing, conducting or styling wedding ceremonies we are out and about discovering the newest unique, hidden gems to have them. We always have our ears to the ground and first came across Camp Katur in the autumn of 2012. It was love at first sight! You only have to visit to see why.
Owner Kerry Roy was starting out on her own adventure to fulfil her “dream” to create a different kind of outdoor experience and glamping site. She loved the idea of having our personal wedding ceremonies in their woodlands and it was clear after a just a few minutes that her venue was the yin to our yang as it were! There are not many sites quite like this, it is something special. Kerry loves to travel bringing new inspiration from lands afar to Camp Katur whilst remaining true to her vision.
Camp Katur is a magical venue set within a 250 acre English Country Manor Estate of Camp Hill. Located in North Yorkshire, close to historic Ripon and with the beautiful Yorkshire Dales on the doorstep Camp Katur really is the perfect wedding setting.
It has more than 10 acres of meadowland surrounded by woodland available for a festival style wedding, an outer barn for the more rustic affair and woodland for a more natural, boho wedding ceremony. All our weddings and ceremonies really are bespoke and unique below you can see the woodland ceremony we created for Liam and Lorna‘s featured in Rock n Roll Bride.
In June last year we created Leanne and Kristian’s personal Country and Western Wedding in the barn which was feature in Rock n Roll Bride. see more.
The beauty of this location is that you have different options to choose from to cater for you own personal style, the different seasons and british weather. The beautiful rustic barn is a perfect blank canvas for you to put your own stamp on.
The open barn is a blank canvas that can be used for your ceremony, reception, welcome area or drinks station. The open bricked, open beamed, open aired barn has personality and charm in abundance and can be transformed into a unique personal setting. Steve and Debbie chose festival chic for their personal wedding ceremony in the barn and then had a fabulous Papakata festival reception in the meadow. If you want to see more it was recently featured on Juno and Joy.
There is also the converted inner Orangery that has large open beams and one side lined with stunning Georgian glassed doors opening onto a grassed patio area. The inner orangery barn can be transformed into a perfect space for your reception and with a bar attached and a small quirky rustic offspring room known as ‘The Rabbit Hole’, this can all be transformed into a creative space to surprise the wedding guests.
You’ve also got an eco spa, a nordic barbecue cabin and glamping accommodation on site in yurts, safari tents, hobbit pods or bell tents.
