WEDDING EVENT: PapaKata 2016 Spring Open Days: 19 and 20 March


Some of the top wedding trends for 2016 will come to life in PapaKåta’s gorgeous Teepees and Sperry Tents at their Spring Open Weekend on the 19th and 20th March 2016. Their tents, hosted at the Escrick Park Estate near York, will be full of ideas to look out for, and be inspired by, in 2016 and beyond.

Authenticity is one of PapaKåta’s key wedding trends for 2016.

Many couples are seeking an authentic experience for their wedding day, with old-fashioned quality, natural surroundings, honest sharing food, textural materials and stylish but simple details. Their Teepees and Sperry Tents will be organically-styled, with a clean palette and beautiful green foliage with some pops of pretty pastel perfection.

The PapaKåta team will be showing how to bring the outside into their tents, to give a sense of nature and warmth to any wedding. They’ve created a number of bespoke fixtures for their tents that can be decorated with florals and foliage, including hanging frames and floral crowns.

PapaKåta is collaborating with Lucy MacNicoll Floral Design, who will be creating beautiful florals in the atmospheric Teepees, and Poppy Pickering, who will be showcasing some of her delectable cake creations. The talented Firenza Floral Design will be styling a Sperry Tent, working key 2016 trending colours into calm green foliage, including designing statement floral chandeliers.

Décor wise, tablescapes will include rustic-luxe details such as tactile linens layered with clean crockery, gilded cutlery and coloured glassware. Wedding chill-out lounges remain as popular as ever, with couples wanting to create a more laid-back and homely feel to their celebrations. PapaKåta have added some new pieces to their on-trend finishing touches, including dreamy dove grey day beds.

Unique wedding bars are still big news for 2016.

This year PapaKåta are introducing their hugely popular 4m circular oak bar into the teepees, creating a show-stopping bar tent with Speakeasy Libations shaking up some inventive cocktails, and in the Sperry Tent they’re adding a super-stylish prosecco bar. They are taking the idea of a ‘feast’ back to its roots with their friends at Feast Yorkshire. Imagine gathering your nearest and dearest together, kicking back and enjoying delicious family-style food sourced from round and about Yorkshire.

The Open Weekend is the perfect opportunity to step inside the Teepees and Sperry Tents and talk to the Papa team about the finer details of your wedding or event.

Appointments are highly recommended.

Available on both Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 4pm, to book, please call PapaKåta on 01904 702100.
