Laura Gosling, 31, married Nicholas Seymour, 34, in June 2012. She says:

"We'd already stayed at Fforest during a camping holiday the summer before our wedding and loved how beautiful and tranquil it was - we knew straight away it was the setting we wanted for our big day. There are plenty of bell tents, tipis and cabins set among the woods for guests to sleep in. All our friends and family arrived on the Friday night and stayed for a barbecue breakfast on the Sunday, which made the whole weekend so sociable and really laid-back. We were lucky with the weather too, although we did have the wellies on hand just in case."

How about having an entire forest to yourself on your big day? If privacy and exclusivity are your top priorities, take a look at Fforest - 200 glorious acres of Pembrokeshire woodland, farmland and wild meadows.

Weddings here are weekend-long affairs with a humanist ceremony in the Giant Hat Tipi (the legal bit can take place just before in the main lodge), hog roasts, sing-alongs around the firepit, and camping for up to 100 - plus converted farm buildings for those who don't 'do' canvas.

It's got the eco angle covered, too, as almost everything, from the wild flowers on the table to the food, is produced on the farm itself.

Ceremony capacity: 160; Packages per person: £57; Corkage: £7
