Recently I welcomed PapaKåta to The Natural Wedding Company directory, they specialise in hiring out giant teepee tents for weddings and they’re holding an Autumn Open Weekend on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October 2012. Held at Escrick Park Estate near York, this open weekend will give you an opportunity to see the Kata tents in all their glory and ask the team questions.
PapaKåta are the most northly based of the giant teepee hire companies that are listed on the directory, so for all my couples who are getting married in the north of the country this is a fantastic opportunity to see these stunning tents set up. They are truly unique and magical spaces and, having been in them myself, I would highly recommend a visit if you are considering them for your wedding reception.
If you’re looking for an incredible wedding venue with a difference, look no future than the stunning giant tepees from PapaKåta. They are holding a Spring Open Weekend on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th April 2011.
Held at Escrick Park Estate outside York, there will be a chance to view these magical wedding spaces between 10am and 4pm. Having seen these giant Kata tents in the flesh myself, I would highly recommend a visit if you are considering them for your wedding. You can’t help but be wooed by the fantastic atmosphere these spaces create when inside them.
Venue: Escrick Park Estate, Escrick, YO19 6EA.
Mr Rigg and I have recently booked our honeymoon, and although I can’t share where we are going or staying until after our wedding, I thought I would share with you another equally beautiful honeymoon spot that we were tempted by.
Eco Retreats offers a secluded hideaway spot for those looking for a honeymoon full of romance, peace and quiet. You can stay under canvas – in a teepee or yurt – deep in the Welsh Forest, where you can slow down and enjoy forest walks, open fires and quality time together.
The traditional teepees and yurt are lovingly furnished with a comfy double bed, organic bed linen, and organic sheepskin rugs, among other creature comforts. Each spot is set apart from the others so you can fully enjoy some undisturbed time together – and the yurt, which was made locally, is nestled close to a river.
A fantastic opportunity to go and see these incredible giant teepees set up and decked out. If you’re considering a giant teepee for your wedding, I’d definitely recommend a visit – Mr Rigg and I went to see the giant teepees set up last autumn in Sussex and you really get a feel for the atmosphere you can create inside them.
PapaKåta are holding an open weekend on the 9th and 10th October 2010 just outside York. You can drop in at any time to say hello, sip a glass of bubbly and toast marshmallows on the brazier – or you can book an appointment with one of their team.
So as I mentioned previously Mr Rigg and I went down south to kick-start our wedding planning. We went to the Beautiful World Tents open day in Horsham, West Sussex. Beautiful World Tents provide a gorgeous range of big and small tipis for wedding receptions and events.
Ever since I first saw images of these tents a couple of years ago when researching for the Directory, I fell in love with them. Now that Mr Rigg and I are starting to think about our own wedding, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go and view these tents.
