Our Autumn Open Weekend Round-Up!

Where do we start? We had an incredible weekend at Dorfold Hall for our Autumn Open Weekend. We are so lucky to have worked with Candice and Charles from Dorfold Hall – they did everything possible to make everything run as smooth as possible and welcomed our team and amazing tribe of suppliers with open arms. We can’t wait for the weddings we have booked there next year!

Dorfold Hall

Throughout the weekend, we welcomed over 300 visitors to our tipis, which was a fantastic turnout. It was great to meet each and everyone of you – we have so many exciting and amazing ideas for your Big Day. Everyone was greeted on arrival in the tipis with a glass of bubbly from Escapade Bars, or a coffee from Das Camervan’s quirky VW outside. A winning duo of effective lighting from Lightech and florals with flamingos from Red Floral, ensured that everyone was blown away once they stepped foot inside.
