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. 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.

The venue for M&R’s wedding earlier this year (see more here), and it’s always a pleasure to work with the fab team from Sami Tipi who run the Cuttle Brook site. It’s such a gorgeous Derbyshire wedding venue right next to the river – the perfect 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’re still waiting to get back the photos from B&N’s photos at Castle View Farm and Stables last year, but we couldn’t miss this stunning venue out! Based near Market Harborough, the team here will see to your every need with a barn / outdoor / combo which is perfect for the modern wedding. There is even room for a fire eater or two! I also named their chickens so it’s like a second home! lol!

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. We’re super excited to be working with them in the New Year.

Long Furlong Farm Venue - Barn weddings

We were treated to a virtual tour of Long Furlong Farm Wedding Venue just the other day in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic and we can’t wait to visit in person. Carmel and Ali, the owners, will look after you every step of the way with this super flexible barn / outdoor wedding venue. They’ve recently become licensed for outdoor wedding ceremonies too! Set in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside (just on the edge of the East Midlands – wink!) we reckon it’s truly one of a kind!

New for 2020 - Meadow Vale Weddings

When we popped to visit Meadow Vale weddings we were blown away by the stunning surroundings. 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!
