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 the last three years so it’s definitely our bag.
So it seemed natural for us to pull together some of the favourites we’ve worked with. 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.
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, Leicester, the team here will see to your every need with a barn / outdoor / combo which is perfect for the modern, flexible wedding. The wedding we held here had a fire eater as well as live saxophone and photobooth.
A new venue we discovered in 2023! You can hire the land at the picturesque Rutland Water Nature Reserve for your marquee wedding!
And even better you can get married in the nearby Normanton Church and even take your guests by boat across the water to the ceremony. We can’t wait to bring you more about this amazing marquee wedding venue so watch this space!
The Hall Barns is an epic rural wedding venue in Loughborough, renovated in 2021, ready to welcome the rule-breakers, rustic lovers and partygoers. You get all he benefits of an outdoor country wedding venue as well as an amazing indoor area for your wedding breakfast.
They have a pretty cracking location for civil ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and receptions, with room for up to 100 wedding guests or 150 dancing queens. Perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies, glamping and festival weddings. We LOVE the outdoor ceremony area which transforms into your evening party zone, the toilets (yes do go and visit them) and the cosy gin bar! As well as onsite accommodation they offer glamping too.
We had the pleasure of visiting Cattows Farm Weddings in Leicestershire this Spring as part of the Sami Tipi Spring showcase. It is a stunning countryside wedding venue which allows you full flexibility to have the marquee or tipi of your choosing. This Leicester wedding venue is also in a great central location with easy access across the East Midlands.
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!
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.
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.
Further afield, over the border in Warwickshire, we couldn’t miss out the stunning Fillongley Hall. This privately owned, Grade 2 listed country house has opened its grounds to marquee and tipi weddins. Exclusive use for the whole weekend, outdoor wedding ceremonies, accomodation on site, glamping options and more! Smaller weddings ceremonies can be held in the House.
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 accommodation. And you can also pop up your own glamping village as well.
They offer dry hire of the grounds so you can put up the marquee of your choosing (be that Sailcloth Tent, Stretch tent or Tipi as pictured). They also have an outdoor wedding ceremony area. They offer full weekend exclusive hire!
