Weddings in the Park 

on the 

Knepp Castle Estate

The alternative venue for a more natural wedding

A unique location

Our parkland is home to free-roaming animals that live a near-natural life in a project that seeks to emulate a time before mankind. It's all about biodiversity. Herds of longhorn cattle, Exmoor ponies, deer and even pigs quietly go about their business driving vegetation changes and creating habitat for wildlife.

We’ve been having parties here for years, but now Beautiful World Tents are promoting this unique location as a wedding venue.

So far most couples have been a little alternative, and the idea of a tepee wedding amongst some real nature seems to appeal.

Many have been attracted not only by the wildlife and setting, but also by the ability to camp the night.

We couldn't have had a better wedding. The location was so perfect and the team at Knepp accommodated all our requests and created a stress free and relaxed lead up to the big day. We had tepees by the lake and we camped over! Our guests have suggested we have an annual repeat they loved it so much! (Amy 2008)



We simply fell in love with the location when we saw it on a misty day in November. All the staff from Knepp were very helpful, friendly and more importantly highly approachable. The guests felt the venue was set in a stunning location, intriguing with animals wandering, not to mention the kids loved chasing the pigs away from food during the picnic. They all wanted to know if they could come back for another picnic ......

The venue is a hidden gem of West Sussex. (Sushma 2009)
