Alternative Wedding Tents

Handmade, unique and eco-friendly wedding yurts

Who are we...

We are Lizzie and Ben. We make our wedding tents lovingly at WoodSmoke Yurts. We met 10 years ago and with our work experience gained through festivals, corporate events and craft workshops we’ve combined our skills to create fantastic venues for special occasions.

We are Alternative Wedding Tents. We manufacture our own unique structures and have recently launched our Wedding Yurt, ‘The Sky Barn’, a majestic stretched yurt, measuring 30ft x 60ft. 

We can provide 100% of the electricity needed for your big day by solar power, which means you can be hosting a green wedding on an off grid location of your choice. We know several beautiful locations in the south west but are willing to travel further afield.

Complete with huge skylight, flooding the space in natural light by day and starry skies at night the Sky barn is stunning on its own, or it can be conjoined with smaller yurts on any of its four doorways. This allows for a reception space to welcome your guests, our catering tent, and also our yurt saloon, a stylishly decked out bar. 

We tailor packages according to your individual taste and our flexibility and ingenuity will help achieve this. 

Creating a beautiful aesthetic with lighting, lanterns, willow archways and flower and foliage base layer, our creative ideas can facilitate your vision and help create the perfect day.

Our stock includes dance floor and stage, rustic tables and benches, P.A system, strings of dainty fairy lights, festoon lights and more…

We pride ourselves on our friendly and professional approach to event organizing and are confident that between our team and you, you’ll have a fantastic and unique day to remember forever.

We manufacture our own tents, sourcing our wood from a woodland near Glastonbury. The ash trees are cut responsibly allowing for ‘continous coverage’ in the canopy, minimalizing any disturbance to the flora beneath. Ash die-back, a fungal infection is causing the slow death of ash trees in the UK which, combined with the strong and flexible nature of the timber makes it a excellent choice for yurt making.

Now is the time we all need to be more conscious of our planet, but this doesn’t mean we have to stop having fun! We can create all the electricity you need for a fantastic party in an environmentally friendly way by using our huge battery bank and solar set-up. This could also mean that you’ll be celebrating your wedding day in that secluded remote place you dreamed of.

"Thank you Ben & Lizzie for a fantastic 'above and beyond' contribution to our day. Your attention to detail was wonderful and it was a pleasure to meet you both.
