wedding accomodation

welcome to our wedding tent!
we stayed in here during our wedding, and even got ready in our wedding clothes in there too.
{I should add that buying the tent worked out much cheaper than staying in a hotel, and we could also use it afterwards too!}



I absolutely love this tent, it is so light and airy inside, just makes you want to have a nice snooze and listen to the grasshoppers.
this is outside my Mum's house, it is right on the edge of a cliff, whilst having fantastic views, it was a tad windy and thought it might actually take off at one point!
But this tent is as robust as you can get and didn't budge an inch.




we cramed it full of my mum's fairy lights {yes we had a power cable of course!} which made the whole tent glow like a lantern.



we are planning to go for a little honeymoon camping trip soon, but think we will wait for better weather and maybe for the school holidays to finish!

  19. Please tell me! where did you buy this amazing tent!

  20. this is a canvas bell tent, there are lots of suppliers in UK/WORLD {i don't want to say where i bought mine as i do not like the company}.
    if i had more time i would definitely buy it from Europe {they all come from Holland} as they are half the price {saving about £175!!}
    do some google research and find a bargain...you can also buy them on ebay.

  23. To the person above,
    craigslist.org is also a good place to search for tents. I got a really nice 40x80 party tent for 1500

  25. Artemis - just revisited this post as my husband-to-be and I are going to have a wedding night tent, too! For those people who want to buy a tent like this, KNOW THIS: Dutch brand Obelink makes this tent - you can buy it here http://www.obelink.nl/tenten/groepstenten/sahara-400-plus.html?category_params=category_id%3D1287%26page%3D4

    even though the Obelink website says 'we do not ship to UK and Ireland', this is a lie. When you order (in Dutch - so use Google translate!) the UK is an option at check out and it all works fine! Buying direct from Obelink means this tent is £272 INCLUDING shipping from Holland to UK, as opposed to £369 (plus £10 shipping!) from Belltents.co.uk the UK stockist of these tents, based in Tooting. I can't believe their massive mark up! Happy camping :)

  26. You certainly had a very romantic wedding celebration using this tent. Matrimonial ceremonies need not be expensive, if it can be celebrated in a unique and memorable way like what you did! Anyway, it’s the thrill and uniqueness of the celebrations that makes wedding celebrations memorable and not the cost of expenses.
