The Wilderness, Wingham

For a laid-back bohemian-style wedding you won't find a more stylish or magical venue than this Kent woodland. Perfect for ceremonies, the after party - and even staying the night in luxury bell tents - this is the ultimate romantic festival experience...

Want a unique wedding brimming with boho glamour and rustic charm? This idyllic woodland venue is hidden away on an enchanting farm in Kent, unspoilt and far from the crowds. Gather your friends and family for an unconventional day in complete privacy, surrounded by woods and water meadows, lakes and fragrant wild flowers. This is the perfect escape into a magical, world of nature.


Wilderness has two licenced locations for legally binding Civil Ceremonies and Partnerships.  (This means you don’t need to go to a registry office and get a marriage certificate on a separate day). If you wish to have a humanist or other type of alternative non-legal wedding this can take place anywhere in the Wilderness Woodland.

The Wilderness has a variety of landscapes to host your dream alternative, boho or festival style wedding, like over-looking the lake in the Woodsman’s Cabin & Chapel Tent is licenced for Civil Ceremonies and Partnerships.


Holding up to 120 guests, the giant Kata tipi tents are just magical. Two tipis form the space for your guests to enjoy your wedding breakfast whilst sat along handmade, rustic wooden trestle tables and benches. The third tipi forms the rustic Champagne Shack bar which provides the perfect drinks reception area and gives protection from adverse weather, allowing you to enjoy a festival atmosphere even when the heavens open.

You’ll have a choice of seven accredited caterers, providing you with a wealth of dining options. They all offer a wonderful service and come highly recommended. Catering for all tastes and budgets, you can rest assured that they will find the perfect menu to accentuate your festival wedding day.


The Glamping option is in beautiful Bell Tents with chandeliers, hardwearing flooring and proper raised wooden beds with crisp cotton bed linen, duck down pillows, fluffy hot water bottles and snug throws, as well as sheep skin and Persian rugs.

Luxury is taken a step further as each tent with electricity, providing the ultimate comfort in the form of heaters, fans and lighting. A breakfast hamper is provided along with the basics like fresh milk, tea, coffee etc. for a self catered breakfast.
