Planning The Ultimate Outdoor Wedding

We at The Unique Tent Company have been working away planning your dream days for when restrictions finally lift. The past year we have seen some clients rescale their day to fit restrictions, some who postponed and some who waited for restrictions to be lifted before finalising plans! But now the time has come; wedding and events are back!

Our clients are those who dare to be different, for those weddings or events a little less ordinary. We specialise in beautiful Marquees and fabulous Tipis to create the most spectacular settings for your dream events found at your perfect locations, whether that be somewhere sentimental to you or at one of fabulous locations here in the North East.

With all the finishing touches and practical items supplied and organised by us, our team make planning an outdoor wedding an exciting but seamless process. We can help design your rustic weddings, glam events, or luxe parties, which we believe should be as unique as you are!

Why Outdoor Weddings?

We love an outdoor wedding, you can design everything from your location, your ideal tent structure, to your favourite caterers and stylists.

Did you know since July 2021 you can legally be married outside!

We are so excited about being able to offer legal outdoor weddings! You can now be officially married outside, meaning if a church or registry office isn't your thing, you can now have your dream outdoor wedding ceremony! Whether that’s under the stars, city lights or woodland settings, the choice is up to you and we’re here to help make it happen.

Our Tipis have been expertly crafted with Nordic Spruce poles and light-tan coloured canvas in the Sami-lands of Northern Sweden! Making them truly authentic, true to their design, tipis are cool in summer and warm in winter. Dressed with sparkling fairy lights, lanterns and a cosy fire-pit. There is no limit to their size, tipis can be connected to create the most welcoming cavernous space. They are perfect for small and intimate do’s such as garden parties and are equally impressive when linked together for large weddings and events.

If a Tipi isn’t quite your thing and you prefer a more classic structure, we have our Tidewater Sailcloth. It is an effortlessly stylish and glamorous marquee with the most breath-taking sail shape. The open or windowed sides create a bright and elegant event space, the translucent Sailcloth fabric allows natural daylight to filter through - every photographer's ideal setting!

Furthermore, we have the Vintage Marquee, an ideal blank canvas for weddings and parties for those dreaming of a major dose of rustic charm! The interior has traditional exposed wooden poles that can be beautifully dressed with fairy lights, chandeliers, exquisite floral displays that adorn the tent or perhaps quaint bunting throughout.

You have the tent - where’s the party? Here in the North East & Cumbria we’re blessed with magnificent countryside, vast coastlines and lands full of historic buildings with stories to tell (shhh...don't tell anyone!) The possibilities are endless when choosing a location, if you're fortunate to have a large outdoor space of your own - perfect or you might have somewhere special in mind, otherwise take a look at our partnership venues such as Kidlandlee, which is nestled in the heart of Northumberland national park.

“It’s like nowhere I’ve been before, the most breath-taking location with the most incredible views”

Everything is up to you! You’re not stuck with set packages and restricted on caterers or limited on size. A Tipi or Marquee wedding it’s as unique as you are! Are you imagining a hidden gin bar nestled within the woods, long tables set for a banquet feast supplied by your favourite restaurant or a real glamorous occasion with chandeliers, fine dining and an oyster bar?

So what are you waiting for? Let’s get planning your next chapter! We pride ourselves on providing an excellent, professional service whatever your reason to come together and celebrate. Our team put the fun into planning your unique event and are here to guide you through every step of the way from choosing your tent structure and furnishings to all the practical items you may need for planning an outdoor event. What's more, we go the extra mile by offering interactive planning and design consultations so you can create your bespoke floor plan.

We can’t wait to hear your ideas!
