Now here’s a little secret to bear in mind while planning your outdoor wedding - you can control all sorts of stuff, but the weather won’t be one of them. Maybe this isn’t want you want to hear, but believe me you won’t want your big day to be a wash out, so taking cover is essential.

And let’s face it, some of the best weddings happen in tents!

You can create your own world in a tent - exotic, bohemian, festival, fiesta, vintage, traditional, contemporary, glamorous, luxury.  Combine their modular nature with the creativity of those tent people and your expanding wedding list won’t prove a problem.
