The allure of collaborating with the likes of Beth Kirby, Luisa Brimble, Rebekka Seale, Aaron Teece and Lean Timms on the Slow Living Byron Retreat was strong, making the travel miles easy! A small bell tent oasis was created on the grounds of Avalon Lea amidst lush tropical fronds and green hills. The interiors were customised at Beth Kirby’s direction, using soft neutrals and green accents inspired by the surroundings. For four days magic was…

In March 2015 we packed up 27 bell tents and our Airstream ‘Peggy Sue’ and hit the road for Do Lectures Australia 2015.

Rural glamping wedding – Oct 2014

By | Airstream, Bell Tents, Event Hire, Festival Wedding, Glamping Wedding

We had the absolute pleasure of creating a bell tent village for the guests of Sarah Jane and Nate’s rural glamping wedding held on the 4th October! The property of 11,000 acres was a 40-minute drive from the closest tiny town, which meant accommodation was seriously scarce. We pitched 15 bell tents in a wide arc, all facing in towards the entertainment area. Peggy Sue the Airstream was set up as the bridal suite facing a secluded creek bed. The weather was perfect and everyone raved about attention to detail and stunning rural backdrop! Above two photos by Elizabeth Kinnaird
