Inside Kelburn Bell Tents

“Perfect wedding venue for a laid back, untraditional wedding. Beautiful setting and such a great team to work with to achieve your dream day!”   Becky – November 2019

“From the first day we went to view Kelburn for our wedding the girls were great, so accommodating and friendly. We loved the outdoor/ woodland feel and wanted a totally relaxed intimate outdoor/woodland wedding and Kelburn was able to accommodate this perfectly. Gemma and Louise were brilliant throughout the whole planning process and made planning my wedding enjoyable. I would highly recommend Kelburn for a wedding- the majority of our guests complimented our venue several times. We had the best day- thank you to all at Kelburn.”   Lauri and David – September 2019

“Our experience was great from start to finish, not only on our wedding day but on the run up to the day as well. We dealt with both Louise & Gemma who were helpful but not overbearing. On the day everything ran so smoothly and our guests all commented afterwards on how good the staff were. I used to work in wedding service myself so I can really appreciate how much effort went into our day and how seemless the staff made it feel. I also think it’s worth noting bar prices were pretty good for a wedding and our band were also amazing (The Invitations). If your looking for a relaxed, outdoorsy wedding with a magical and intimate feel, this is the place for you”    Gillian – September 2019
