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…

Old Church benches

we have 12 x10ft long old pitch pine benches that we use in the walled garden for outdoor weddings


We’ve also commissioned and had made locally a wonderful sail awning, giving us lots of additional shelter, inside/outside space in the farmyard.

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


A quirky  ‘green’ extra for weddings – a bicycle powered smoothie and cocktail maker- even the bride can have a go

Photo Booth

We can have a photo booth in one of the spaces in the courtyard with printing facilities.

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)

Local Flowers

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.

Vintage tractor

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

Flower Arch

As you walk into the tipi there is an arch that can be decorated ….

Pretty Jam-jars

For tealights or flowers or both, we have tons of them!

Outdoor Games

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!

Fire Pits

Two Kadai fire pits with straw bale seating for chilling out after the evening reception

Hot Tub

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!

Tree Planting

We offer the ability for their to be a tree planting ceremony – usually apple trees in the orchard, as wacky as you like…

Fantastic Sunsets

The Tipi faces West – and if you are lucky you can have fantastic sunsets…

PA system

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.
