Discovering marquee & tipi wedding venues in the East Midlands

Outdoor wedding venues with the wow factor!

We LOVE outdoor wedding venues here at TBWC HQ. In fact, we’d like to say it’s one of our specialities and we’ve been voted the Best Outdoor Wedding Planner in the UK for 2020 so it’s definitely our bag.

So it seemed natural for us to pull together some of the favourites we’ve worked with over the past year. If you are planning an outdoor wedding in the East Midlands this one is for you! From field wedding venues, to tipi (or teepee) venues, to working farms,  barns and stretch tent / marquees, there is something for everyone.

Castle View Farm and Stables

We have LOADS of LOVE for Castle View Farm and Stables which was the venue for B&N’s wedding day. Based near Market Harborough, the team here will see to your every need with a barn / outdoor / combo which is perfect for the modern, flexible wedding. There is even room for a fire eater or two! I also named their chickens so it’s like a second home! lol!

Oaktree Farm Weddings

What can we say about Oaktree Farm? They have Alpaca’s so it’s a winner already right? We had the pleasure of working here last summer for A&B’s wedding day (see more from that here).  It rained nearly all day (it was just after the hottest day of the year so it was preferable to the heat!) and everyone had the best day. A stunning outdoor wedding venue on the Nottinghamshire / Lincolnshire border with dedicated wedding ceremony area too.

Derbyshire wedding venue, WATERFRONT WEDDING VENUE

Cuttle brook, Swarkstone

The venue for M&R’s wedding (see more here), and it’s always a pleasure to work with the fab team from Sami Tipi on the Cuttle Brook site. It’s such a gorgeous Derbyshire wedding venue right next to the river – the perfect location for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Just make sure you have a wet weather plan with plenty of indoor space just in case the english weather doesn’t play ball!

MEADOW VALE Weddings

When we popped to visit Meadow Vale weddings we were blown away by the stunning surroundings and views over the Nottinghamshire countryside. They have three (soon to be four) permament glamping structures (luxury glamping) on the site with superb facilities which are perfect for wedding accomodation.  And you can also pop up your own glamping village as well. Just perfect!

overgrown acres

We are just LOVING the vibe at Overgrown Acres Tipi wedding venue. This South Nottinghamshire wedding venue has a gorgeous forest area, cute chill out house complete with log fire (perfect for that late night tipple) and complimentary bridal suite. They’ve also recently got licensed an outdoor wedding ceremony area right next to their tipis which are put up every summer.
