Wedding Facilities and Extras
There are lots of extras that we provide as part of the service for your wedding and only some of them do we charge for where they cost us a lot to provide.Talk to us about the ones you would like… Or anything else you would like us to do…
Horse and cart
Our beautiful gentle Shire/Cob Bonnie pulls our waggonette for wedding day transport for Bride and Groom up to Tipi. Talk to us if you want more trips which will cost a bit more. If you just want to use Bonnie in full regalia as a photo opportunity then we can also do this
We’ve also commissioned and had made locally a wonderful sail awning, giving us lots of additional shelter, inside/outside space in the farmyard.
Old Church benches
we have 12 x10ft long old pitch pine benches that we use in the walled garden for outdoor weddings
A quirky ‘green’ extra for weddings – a bicycle powered smoothie and cocktail maker- even the bride can have a go
We have a separate small 16ft Tipi that we can set up with straw bale seating inside with a fite for chilling out, a phot booth or just chatting during the evening reception.
Wooden trestle tables
Rustic new trestle tables for the Tipi have been made for us in the village from local wood left over from logs that we were chipping for our biomass boiler (the trunks were too big to go in the chipper)
We grow some flowers ourselves if you want to do your own arrangements or we can give you names of local growers to provide sustainable flower arrangements.
Our 1965 David Brown tractor can have a straw bale attached to the back if you are allergic to horses for transport for the bride and groom to the Tipi
As you walk into the tipi there is an arch that can be decorated ….
For tealights or flowers or both, we have tons of them!
We have lots of outdoor games including, connect 4, coconut shy, draughts and giant jenga.
Balinese prayer flags
We have large 6 metre flags in various colours which you can hire to make your wedding a special event
We have lots of lovely handmade bunting – lacy white or cherry red and green .
Cake-stands and vintage china
Mis-matched 3 tier cake stands available to hire for tea parties. Also loads of retro mis-matched china
We’ve bought thousands of eco-frendly soy tealights, delicately rose-scented. If you’d like some they do cost more than the non ‘green’ ones but are much better for the environment!
Two Kadai fire pits with straw bale seating for chilling out after the evening reception
Our beautiful new Scandinavian wood fired eco hot tub is now installed on wooden decking overlooking the valley. Heated by wood grown sustainably on site or in our neighbour’s wood, heated in under 3 hours, and will take up to 6 people
Swedish fire sticks
These look fantastic at night in front of the Tipi – ask us!
We offer the ability for their to be a tree planting ceremony – usually apple trees in the orchard, as wacky as you like…
The Tipi faces West – and if you are lucky you can have fantastic sunsets…
Nexo professional PA system with base subs buried under the Tipi dance floor and top frequency speakers facing down at the dance floor. The amps are QSC amplifiers (GX5 for tops and RMX 850 for base). We prefer bands to use the system and insist that DJs do as it contains the sound better in the TIPI so we don’t upset our neighbours.
