JON & RACHAEL
Whimsical Wonderland Weddings
Jon and Rachael’s rustic barn wedding at Bartholomew Barn was a mix of DIY decorations, cottage garden flowers, wellies and love.
With Rachael making all the bunting herself!
We provided a 7m chill out bell tent, fully dressed, for guests to use in the daytime and the evening as overspill space.
Did you know we provide chill out bell tent hire in West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and UK wide?
ABI & GREG
Abi and Greg had their Glastonbury inspired wedding at Rye Island Henfield, West Sussex.
Their original venue had fallen through but they were lucky enough to secure this spot which was close to home and even has a zip wire!!
With big Kata tipis, tables named after the Glastonbury stages, a wedding guest bell tent village, some beautiful DIY elements and a Spotify playlist – they finished off their day with a glitter bar and a party in a barn!
Our bell tent hire services cover Hampshire, Dorset, The New Forest, Wilshire, West Sussex and Surrey.
ALEX & NATALIE
THE SECRET BARN
Rock My Wedding
Alex and Natalie married at The Secret Barn in Steyning, West Sussex. They had their wedding in the orchard amongst the trees, with one of their friends conducting the ceremony.
Petal and Feast provided British picnic canapés , a BBQ, ice cream and a cheese wheel cake.
We are totally in love with the relaxed boho vibe and Natalies gorgeous flower crown (also by Petal and Feast).
A 16 tent bell tent village accommodated all of the guests overnight, with Natalie and Alex glamping in one of our wedding bell tents.
HARRIET & STUART
Harriet and Stuart married at Patricks Barn, East Sussex.
For us it was the first of many trips to the barn to set up for weddings, and it would be fair to say we had a bit of jigging to do on the day to fit all the tents in. (We managed!)
We love that Harriet and Stuart used the Byre for their sit down meal and that their personal touches were subtle there throughout – every wedding should have some sort of rabbit theme!
The food was from the fabulous Becky, AKA The Garden Chef. After a day and night of partying Harriet and Stuart, and all their guests made the short walk to the field where their bell tent village, complete with one of our wedding bell tents and 7m chill out bell tent for the after party, were set up.
Bookings for bell tent hire in East Sussex and Kent may be subject to higher minimum orders depending on the distance.
ROBYN & TOM
Love My Dress
When we’re asked to set up our bell tent guest villages at Bignor Park, West Sussex, we know we’re going to have a wonderful time as the grounds and views are simply stunning!
Robyn was the most relaxed bride we have ever worked with, trusting her suppliers to just get on and do what they do!
We tucked Robyn and Tom’s wedding bell away in The Glade (real name the Azalea gardens). It has the most beautiful walkway, through bushes and trees alive with the noise of bees and wildlife, and fragrant flowers.
It’s an absolute must for a wedding tent bell location at Bignor and we’ve now managed to get Louise, their events manger calling it the Glade too!
Guests stayed overnight, glamping in their bell tents on the Croquet Lawn.
PAULA & JON
Paula and Jon’s wedding at Fiesta Fields was set at Roberts Field. Their field hire service really does give couples a blank canvas to build their bespoke and dreamed of day.
The long grass added to the relaxed vibe and they positioned their vintage pole tent so guests could look out at the picturesque views.
Paula and Jon were keen for their day to be as child friendly as possible as they have 2 small children themselves.
We provided a luxury couples bell tent as accommodation for Paula and Jon for the night and we set up a children’s play bell tent to keep the smaller guests occupied.
ALICE & ANDY
Did you know we also supply bell tent hire in Oxford and surrounding counties?
Alice and Andy utilised the space at Alice’s parents home in Oxford for their wedding reception.
They really thought of everything – even hiring wood fired hot tubs and deckchairs for their guests to enjoy the morning after!
A big fire pit with hay bales finished off their 16 bell tent village for their wedding guests.
They hired a Sperry tent from Paapkata, and it was dressed with lots of greenery and flowers and candles hung in jam jars.
GEORGE & AMY
Love My Dress
We were privileged when George and Amy asked us to provide accommodation their wedding. They had attended Natalie and Alex’s wedding the year before (see previous blog) and had stayed in our tents!
The Anglesey Arms is short drive for us. George is the publican so they made use of the pubs grounds for their celebration.
Needless to say the whole team were excited at the prospect of a cold beer when we finished setting up!
We watched a willow archway being built between 2 trees in the pub garden, and the whole feel was one of a relaxed, boho, and very cool wedding!
ELOISE & ASH
HOUSE ON THE BROOKS
When your friends (who both work in the wedding industry) ask you to provide bell tent accommodation for their wedding, well you know it’s going to be one hell of a party!
Ash of Tents N’ Events, and Eloise of The Beautiful Day chose House On The Brooks to celebrate their day, complete with a huge vintage pole tent (what else!) and Eloise set to work doing what she does best, and styling absolutely EVERYTHING!
Plenty of outdoor games kept and guests entertained and we ate the best hog roast we’ve ever tasted!
DARA & JAMIE
THE SECRET BARN
Whimsical Wonderland Weddings
We say the sun always shines at the Secret Barn and it definitely did for Dara and Jamie’s Secret Barn wedding!
They camped out in our bell tent village, with lots of guests, after a night partying. They held their own cake competition which meant guests could get involved, with Bake Off style rivalry – and it kept guests well fed too!
It’s just a short walk home for Secret Barn weddings. The glamping field is just across a small wooden bride, next to the Orchard, where Dara and Jamie chose to have their wedding ceremony.
We love that Dara rocked such a beautiful dress – complete with Converse!
KIRSTY & JON
Kirsty and Jon held their wedding at Hidden Valley, one of our favourite Fiesta Fields venues.
The perfect location for a Glastonbury inspired wedding!
We provided bell tent accommodation for guests and also the couple themselves – with lots of family members staying on site too to complete their weekend!
We can still remember how hot it was that weekend!
WILLIAM & SARAH
Whimsical Wonderland Weddings
We packed up ALL of the vans and headed to Oxford to set up a huge bell tent village to accommodate William and Sarah’s guests for the weekend. We even saw a calf being born as we stopped for a break on the way there!
The wedding was set it William’s parents garden, which when we say garden doesn’t convey the size – and how much work had gone in to getting the ground prepped and ready.
Whilst all the guests glamped in a big circular village, we tucked Sarah and William’s tent away in a gladed area for some privacy.
Margot's Wedding | Organised by Fiesta Fields
When a whole bunch of suppliers come together on a sunny day, in the heart of West Sussex with an epic photographer then you know you’re going to end up with a whole host of cool ideas.
For this shoot we wanted to provide some inspiration for a wedding weekender; starting on Friday evening with an outdoor cinema night with popcorn and hot dogs.
A Saturday morning scavenger hunt, informal sharing platters, an evening ceremony, pizzas and desserts and a survivors breakfast on Sunday morning.
The 7m boho chill out bell tent was put to good use over the course of the day, and into the evening.
SUSTAINABLE STYLED SHOOT
Green Union and Festival Brides
As a business we are passionate about sustainability and are constantly looking for new ways to reduce our impact on the environment around us.
Most of our time is spent in the beautiful British countryside, which also means we see firsthand the damage that left over waste can cause to the wildlife, and surrounding green areas.
We’ve also worked with a lot of couples over the years who share this ethos and don’t want their celebration to impact the planet.
We came together with other Eco minded suppliers in 2019 for a sustainable photoshoot for sustainable outdoor wedding inspiration.
Our 5m wedding boho bell is draped with Indian silk Sarees. These Sarees had a life before us, they were worn and loved – which makes some of their tiny imperfections all the more interesting. We sourced the chunky Indian Rose wood screen from Gumtree a few years ago (and could barely lift it to get it in the van!) and the tassel bunting to the front is made up of offcuts from other Sarees from other projects!
Whilst we know we’re biased, the Wedding Boho Bell is always the one that leaves people wowing.
We’re delighted that this shoot has now been featured on 2 huge national blogs, and you’ll find the links to both below.
Venus awards and Muddy Stilettos
We were nominated for the Portsmouth business awards at the end of 2015 for the categories of New Business and Customer Service.
Not only did we make it to the finals in both categories but we won the award for New Business in May 2016.
For us it was a huge achievement.
Then in 2017 we won (by public vote) best glamping provider in Hampshire!
We now like to say we offer ‘award winning’ bell tent hire!
