If you’ve not had a chance to visit The Wedding Meadow, here’s a taster of Amy & Richards amazing Big Chief Wedding at the venue itself.

Not only will we be showcasing our fabulous tipis, but we have also invited a bunch of our favourite suppliers to showcase their products and services. Here’s a few of the confirmed suppliers that will be joining us at our Autumn Open Weekend…

Ahpae Taps

Known as the ‘Little Italian Mobile Bar’, Ahpae Taps serves chilled draught Prosecco and Lager – who doesn’t like the sound of that?! Imported from Italy, this little gem has undergone a makeover, and looks absolutely fabulous.

Ahpae Taps provide bespoke packages that are tailored to suit any size of event including weddings and parties. They also provide personalised finishing touches including signage and decorative items such as balloons and flowers.

We can’t wait to meet the ‘Little Italian’ whilst sipping on a glass of chilled Prosecco!

Blank Canvas Tents 

Another of our favourite finds this year has to be Blank Canvas Tents, who we met at the Brides Up North WEDSTIVAL16′ event. We’ve been looking for a local glamping company that is affordable and helpful, so we’re excited to be joined by the Blank Canvas team!

Blank Canvas Tents hire out beautiful little Bell Tents perfect for your Big Chief event. You hire them for 2 nights so it’s possible for your guests to glamp the night of your event and the night after too – turning it into a two-night spectacular!


Marie Antoinette Cakes

If you’re looking for a cake with the wow-factor, you need to check out Marie Antoinette Cakes. Based in Cheshire, Marie Antoinette Cakes specialise in creating unique wedding cakes that are eye-catching and taste delicious! Every cake is tailored to you and your special day, and you have control over everything from size, shape, colour, taste… you name it! Here’s some of their fabulous cakes to tickle your taste buds before our Open Weekend…


Ice Cream Dub

Family run business, Ice Cream Dub, is the perfect extra to your Big Chief Event. They serve their delicious ice cream from their vintage VW camper van and classic pashley trike.

Ice Cream Dub provide a bespoke service, so you can choose exactly what you like for your Big Day! You have the choice from a variety of amazing flavours including Chocolate Orange to Rum ‘n’ Raisin and even Vanilla with American Cherries and Chocolate! They use the finest natural ingredients, whole milk and rich cream, and for those who’d prefer a lighter dairy free option, try one of their refreshing sorbets made with fresh fruit and a little dash of alcohol – if you like!


Over the weekend, we will be raising money for The Christie Cancer Charity and we have asked all of our suppliers to make a donation of £100 to exhibit. We hope to raise over £1,000 over the weekend for this fantastic cause that is close to our hearts.

If you are interested in joining us as a supplier, please send an email to and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
