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
