WEDDING TENTS: Take cover on your wedding day with 9 more stunning tent companies: PART 2

We already know that some of the best weddings happen in tents!

Accept the vagaries of the weather and create your own wedding world - in a tipi or teepees, yurt, a stretch tent, contemporary tent, a traditional pole tent or a even a tented camp.  Combine your tent’s modular nature with the creativity of your tent supply company and your expanding wedding list won’t prove a problem.

I do hope last week’s line up of 8 handpicked tent supremos with superb eco credentials helped you focus on what sort of cover you could choose for your outdoor wedding.  There was plenty of inspiration for you, but maybe they weren’t in the right part of the country or didn't have quite the right tent?

Take your pick from this line up of 9 tent experts ...

They are all hand picked by Green Union and listed in our wedding directory so you know I have personally vetted their credentials.

Fjell Event Tipis

Offering a perfectly natural wedding solution, with visually stunning structures, Fjell Event Tipis can link and configure any number of tents to suit you and your wedding guests, creating a unique space that can be dressed to your own style, taste or theme.

Based in the beautiful English Lake District, Fjell has supplied hundreds of tipis for weddings in stunning locations across Northern England and Scotland. They can also help you find the ideal site for your tents including lakeside locations, country house hotel grounds, rustic farm sites and littlplaces with stunning panoramic views of the Lakeland Fells.

Hooe’s Yurts

The lovely Amy and Max at Hooe’s Yurts will supply you with an array of stunning giant yurts for your wedding reception, a cosy sleeping yurt for your wedding night and even a yurt camp for your hen weekend anywhere in the South West of England.  They specialise in decorating their yurts with exotic textiles and bespoke furniture, creating that very special space just for you.

They stock a collection of different size yurts ranging from a massive pavilion to a cosy bedroom, which means the yurts can not only be used individually, but skilfully linked together to create an amazingly exotic and comfortable yurt wedding palace and village for your whole special weekend.

Special Event Tipis

The lovely people at Special Event Tipis say their ‘super-structures’ will provide you with a warm, neutral space to unleash your individuality.  They supply unique, fun and distinctive tents along with a friendly, professional and supportive service.  With bases in both Cumbria and Northumberland they can help you create your ‘Special Event’ anywhere in the North East.

Like all our tent companies, they are with you every step of the way, helping you have a spectacular wedding day - one to remember!

The Arabian Tent Company

Founder Katherine Hudson has travelled the world looking for fabrics and furniture to create her fabulous bespoke marquees which she and her amazing team fill with colour, texture and a unique personality.  A passion for colour, texture and pattern makes this collection of marquees unique with inspiring interior themes such as Fiesta, Arts and Crafts, Vintage and English Tea Party as well as Arabic, Moroccan and Bollywood.  All these themes are supported by an eclectic range of lighting, furniture and props.

The Arabian Tent Company supplies luxury wedding tents throughout the South East of England and focuses on creating magical environments for those extra special occasions.  Uniquely, they can also dress up a plain room such as a village hall or boring old function room, and create a fantasy space to suit to your wedding.  Oh, and they have a Wedding Industry Award for service to prove it!

Highland Tipis

If you’re planning a Scottish wedding Highland Tipis can supply you with tents that have that natural ‘wow’ factor.  The raw wood and diffused light makes any event, big or small, feel intimate and exciting.  Joined together or standing alone, with sides up or down, they provide a simply beautiful setting. Think of them as a wedding marquee … only better!

The teepees look magnificent filled with your personal choice of accessories, from log fires to lanterns and flowers to fairy lights ... the possibilities are endless.  Highland Tipis can take their giant hat tipis to your chosen wedding venue all over Scotland including the cities, so don’t hold back if you want a tent to get wed in.

Over the Moon Tents

This fabulously energetic company based in Somerset supplies an innovative and cutting-edge range of wedding tents ranging from the traditional canvas marquee, tipis and yurts, through to contemporary and free-flowing ‘Intent’ stretch tents.

These canvas structure aficionados will design and completely realise the relaxed and unique wedding of your dreams be it festival, vintage, wild west, fiesta, or simply old back-yard style, supplying everything from the big space, live music, DJs, lighting, furniture, props, decor, eco-friendly ‘compost toilets’ and much more - Over the Moon Tents has got it covered!

Posh Frocks and Wellies

This perfectly formed tent company, servicing the North West of England, offers traditional canvas pole marquees of all shapes and sizes, plus those stylishly new contemporary stretch tents, all enhanced by beautiful decorative themes to complement your wedding.  They design and hand make all their tent interiors with themes such as Rose Garden, Bohemian Dreams, Country Chic, Kasbah and Wedstival.

The lovely people at Posh Frock and Wellies are also very happy to design a bespoke interior for you and provide all the necessary support services for your wedding.

Event in a Tent

Based on the traditional tents of the Sami people of Lapland, the fantastic giant wedding tipis that Event in a Tent supply are made using a combination of both modern and traditional techniques and materials. These wonderful tents can withstand anything the good old British weather can throw at them. Their unique design means that if you’re enjoying a great view, or the summer sun, then the sides of the tipis can be lifted to let the outside in. For those enjoying a winter wedding, the tipis will create that perfect cosy winter atmosphere with crackling fires and twinkling fairy lights.  Based in North Wales, Event in a Tent will pitch their poles all over Wales, the Midlands and West of England.

Cariad Canvas

And as an added extra, in case you need some extra tented accommodation for your wed fest, Cariad Canvas specialise in creating temporary contemporary tented accommodation villages for weddings. Their bespoke bell tents and yurts can house any number up to 800 wedding guests.  Tapping into the comfort and convenience of a ‘hotel’ right where the action is means your wedding celebrations can go on all weekend, keeping your guests close!

Which would you choose? They are all so awesome that any one will meet your mark!

All our tent peeps are holding open days over the next couple of months and I am currently posting dates on the blog as I write, so do keep visiting for more information.

Here at GUHQ I’m always excited to discover outstandingly committed, super cool wedding tent peeps that are as passionate as I am about weddings so please get in touch and tell me about any I may have missed.
