Choosing to have your wedding at a glamping venue is a sure fire way to set the tone of your wedding to chilled and fun. It’s an adventure. It’s exciting. And it’s different! There’s still not many couples in NSW who choose to accommodate themselves (or their guests) in a glamping tent on the night of their wedding.
Glamping is growing in popularity though, which is evident in the expanding number of wedding venues that now offer glamping as an option on their properties. In NSW, glamping venues range from farms to adventure camps to beachside estates to eco lodges and luxury retreats. And the cost of glamping at these venues is just as diverse as what they offer.
Most glamping tents come in two varieties. Portable glamping tents are pitched specifically for your wedding and are taken down again as you head off on your life adventure together. Venues that allow portable glamping tents on their property either own their own tents and they’ll charge you to hire them, or tents are supplied by external suppliers. Some venues will make arrangements with external suppliers for you, while others will request you to engage suppliers directly.
Hiring portable glamping tents usually includes a comfy bed, linen, blankets, pillows, floor rugs and some in-tent furniture like bedside tables and luggage stools. Some also include an outdoor table and chairs for two, or deck chairs.
If you’re going all out and arranging a glamping village to accommodate your entire wedding guest list, you might also hire a communal glamping tent where guests can congregate for small social gatherings, and furniture and furnishings for an outdoor lounge area. This set up is often referred to as a festival style wedding.
The other glamping option which leans towards a more luxury experience is semi-permanent tenting. These tents are usually pitched over the top of, or adjoining a permanent structure like a deck and are not taken down between bookings. What makes this glamping option great are the experiential extras. Like the perfectly private outdoor baths on their decks in which you can relax while sipping a glass of wine while enjoying the breeze and watching the birds.
Any wedding venue that provides glamping also offers wedding ceremonies and receptions onsite. They are truly all-in-one venues where (aside from a golf buggy or two) transport will not be required for the duration of your stay. Here is our complete list of wedding glamping venues in NSW.
