Venue Showcase – September 2018

Last weekend saw us host our annual Venue Showcase here at Gisburne Park Estate in association with Big Chief Tipis. Based in Bolton, Big Chief Tipis are a family run team who have a passion for perfection and putting on memorable events. Their tipis are constructed using wooden poles and a light-coloured canvas which creates a stunning space and fabulous atmosphere.

We chose to interlink three big hats to create a large space inside and provide that all important wow factor as guests arrived at our wedding venue. We also added the weatherproofing kit and a little hat provided the perfect home for our 4m round wooden bar.

The weather forecast didn’t look great, and the team battled through two storms and relentless rain to complete the tipi build on time. Luckily the weather took a change for the better and during the weekend we enjoyed sunshine and blue skies!

We styled the first big hat as it could be for your wedding day, we had a mix of round tables and benches, all of which were beautifully dressed by Red Floral Architecture, using lots of foliage, candles and in-season hops. We added charger plates, cutlery and glassware from Whitehouse Event Crockery and completed the look with name cards by Suzanne Oddy Designs. Lighting was provided by Lightech for that seriously wow factor!

Guests were treated to Prosecco on arrival, yummy chocolate brownies from With A Twist and entertainment by the wonderful Arthur from DFC Lancashire. Not to mention the seriously cool toilets from Classic Chambers.

We were also joined by some of the most wonderful suppliers, who each made our Wedding Venue Showcase a great success:
