Let’s wander… the Bush Walking Celebrant. Shoes optional.

There are places on this earth that call your heart and instil a sense of love, connection, and peace within you. These places are often untouched wild destinations not accessible by car. The significance of the wedding vows always deserves reverence and grace, coupled with a beautiful, inspiring setting, on top of a mountain, deep in a valley, midway across a creek, the water trickling between your toes… Nature will hold the space while you hold the vows.

I’ve got the map; you’ll have each other. Together we will walk, arrive, settle and marry, be the sun high or low in the sky.

Sounds poetic, yes? …Shall we wander?

Tell Me More…

Switch off from the quick pace of suburban life and walk to a place of natural beauty. I’ll hike in with you and marry you, wherever that place may be. This is a great option for those who want to focus on personal connection and ‘less stuff’. Let’s find all we need to celebrate love in our natural environment.

We will pay our respects and thank the indigenous landowners and the past, present, and emerging elders for caring for the land and its people.

Let’s meet ‘n’ greet—an initial, obligation-free meeting to see if we are a perfect match. I’ll show you what I can do and hear what you want to do.

Bush wedding


It’s when a couple chooses to take their nuptials nestled in nature! The bush is a beautiful setting for your wedding day with its clean air, breathtaking scenery and rugged wilderness. Bush weddings create a more intimate and relaxed environment, where you can be surrounded by loved ones and immersed in serenity. You can express your identity as a couple in this enchanting space and give your friends and family the gift of fun and frolics in nature.

Unique place:  Mother Nature does what it does best: It provides the decoration, the landscape for photos, the setting, and the soundscape, all without you lifting a finger. AND the carbon footprint is MUCH lower than a venue-held ceremony!

Idyllic and serene: Imagine that feeling of euphoria from celebrating your wedding day in the unspoilt and breathtaking bush landscape, far away from the hustle and bustle of town and city life. Why be cooped up indoors when you could share your joy with ancient trees, dense vegetation, and curious wildlife?

Create lasting memories: These forests, valleys, and waterfalls will hold a special place in your heart throughout your lifetime.

Stunning wedding photographs: As an experienced wilderness wanderer, I could lead you to the perfect spot for jaw-dropping scenery, where your photographer could showcase those perfect moments, immortalising your memories for the wedding album.

Frequently Asked Question

Know more about what Katie Reeve can do to make your event more memorable and a dream-come-true event.

1 Are bush weddings seasonal?

Nope! There are times of the year that are better suited to this type of event – however, it isn’t impossible to navigate more extreme weather with adequate preparation and planning.

2 How much does a bush wedding cost?

Like all types of weddings, the cost can vary depending on the state, the wedding venue, the number of guests, the timing and how lavish your ideas are! A bush wedding could be relatively cheap compared to a city one if you have fewer guests, but you would also need to factor in onsite accommodation for guests. Weekend and holiday season weddings are likely to bump up the cost.

3 What size wedding party is best for a bush wedding?

The biggest consideration of this style of wedding is caring for nature. It is so important to leave only your footprint in places of extreme beauty. It is everyone’s responsibility to care for the country.

4 Will there be access to facilities?

There are some spectacular onsite accommodation options, putting you right in the heart of nature with stunning views and plenty of space for your friends and family. Wedding venues usually have accommodation, so you can head to your venue to eat delicious food, order some drinks from the bar, mingle with guests, enjoy the entertainment on stage and get some well-deserved sleep. You won’t have to go wild in the wilderness, foraging for food and roughing it outdoors in a tent, when there is a perfect venue with all the facilities you’ll need.  Other options include locations near public facilities and shelters. REMEMBER: There are special requirements within National Parks and Council Cared for Parks. A permit may be required.

5 What should I wear to a bush wedding?

Planning what to wear for a wedding in the bush? Shoes first, you have the freedom to feel the earth beneath your feet at any time, but you might need a trusty pair of shoes to get you there! A more rugged terrain will require more sturdy footwear for the hike. Consider the whole event: your vows, the reception, and your first dance. You can still go glam with a smart suit or flowing wedding dress, but you can also choose something less formal.

There are no words strong enough to express how great Katie is.She made us both feel completely at ease for the lead up and on the wedding day. She's just such a calming and lovely presence.No task or question was too hard and everything we threw at her, she accepted so willingly. She gave us some really epic ideas for the ceremony to include special people we wanted. There were so many laughs and tears. Not once did she make it about herself or anyone else but us.So many people complimented our choice in celebrant and asked where we found her which we so willingly passed on her details of course!

Katie provided us with exactly the kind of wedding service we were after.It was a small, intimate ceremony and Katie's kind and personalised words were perfect.Her audio equipment was perfect for everyone to hear everything, including the valued guests around the world who weren't able to attend in person but could watch through a live stream.She was also very effective at reassuring a nervous groom that everything would go smoothly - and it did!
