We will be setting up four of our Big Hats, complete with a variety of seating options, Circular Bar with Flower Hoop, Catering Tent, Weatherproofing Kit and Panoramic Panel – so you’ll get to see the full range of our Accessories! Not only that, but we will have one of our Little Hats up too.


For our 2017 Autumn Open Weekend, we have chosen an incredible venue called Dorfold Hall, which is a Jacobean mansion in Nantwich, Cheshire. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building and is simply stunning. You can’t help but be blown away when you enter the drive, which is surrounded by beautiful lily-filled lakes.

Not only does the venue have recently renovated accommodation available (which are all gorgeous), it also has extensive gardens and fields that are perfect for tipis – winner! During our Open Weekend, please report to the Main Hall on arrival, where you will be given a little map of where all the fun is. Candice and her Dorfold Team will be on-hand throughout the weekend to answer any questions you may have about holding your outdoor wedding there.
