As a fan of camping since I was a ‘little un’ and having enjoyed many holidays under canvas with my kids since before they could crawl, it should come as no surprise that I love the whole idea of tents and camping as a way of enjoying time with family and friends. Funny that I became an owner of a tipi hire business hey? But here’s a unique wedding idea, one that absolutely compliments our kata tipis to a T for an experience that is a stand out for a destination wedding with a difference. So your guests can enjoy the celebration from start to finish without time constraints and travel worries, why not have a camping village pitched right next to your wedding reception marquee. We call it the Hitched and Pitched experience.
If you’ve got a paddock on your family’s property or have hired an area at your favourite camping ground, you could always rope off an area and get your guests to BYO camping gear. But if that seems too hard on the organisation front, then here comes the icing on the cake. Wedding glamping could be the way to go! With the help of Happy Glamper, your guests could be enjoying a night in the totally luxurious and glamorous surrounds of their gorgeous vintage caravans, cutely named Peggy Sue and Norma Jean. Or if it’s canvas you’re after, a beautiful bell tent will provide comfort and a touch of style. All the setting up is taken care of, and all you have to do is go from the tipi party to glamping heaven in a matter of steps.
One of the best bits about a Hitched and Pitched wedding celebration is that you are not confined to a set number of hours and can enjoy as much time together with your guests as you want. Dancing through the night, fireside chats till the wee hours and then a recovery breakfast the next day can be enjoyed as well. With all the action and fun happening in one location, you can also tick a few boxes if a sustainable wedding is something that is important to you.
There are always great ways to reflect your personality at your wedding celebrations and if you love nature and being outdoors and don’t want to be confined by four walls, then throw open the canvas doors and let the fun begin
