My BIL and SIL had a similar wedding to this they had a treasure hunt for the children with small toys sweets hidden around the field.

They had giant games connect 4, chess etc

They had a ceili at night which was great fun.

They got married the day before with 10 guests and then had the blessing and party the day after. We all stayed in a camping barn and apart from my own wedding it's the best I've ever attended!

my mother, good points. alot of out mates have camper vans so all camp anyway.

oh fire pits we will have them too

Cross-posted, a log cabin would have been fab! Sounds great grin

Sounds fab if all guests are between about 6 and 60, are there other options for those with babies/toddlers, older people or those who hate camping? Is there the option just to come for the day, or is it a weekend event because its somewhere inaccessible? I was at a wedding this year that had a similar set up, lovely for the majority of the guests who were in their 20s and not parents, but I had to spend the majority of the time chasing DS around making sure he didn't get burnt (fire pits and lit torches in the evening), garrotte himself on a tent rope, fall in the onsite stream, etc. Also napping was a nightmare, no chance in a tent! Ended up sat in the car for a significant part of the event so he could sleep in his carseat. I appreciate that this is the deal with young children, but worth considering if you're of an age where friends/ family have babies/pre-schoolers!

the campsite has log cabins and mobile homes for anyone who doesn"t want to camp.

marquee will be decorated fri afternoon by me!

am considering sneaking off to reg office in morn and doing legal bit and having blessing on site instead? nut not sure about that!

also need entertainment ideas if you have any!

One other thought, are there any B&Bs close by in case anyone wants to stay there rather than camp?

LumpySpacePrincessOhMyGlob Sat 05-Oct-13 09:29:56

Sounds fab! Looks like you have really considered everyone.

sooperdooper Sat 05-Oct-13 09:29:04

Sounds brilliant! Does the campsite have toilets/shower block or will you hire in portaloos?

Only other thing I can possibly think of is decorations of some sort? Bunting looks nice with a marquee smile
