Build your own bespoke ‘Wedfest’ wedding festival celebration with Cariad Canvas and Wedding Tipi

I love camping. There’s no better setting than the great outdoors to allow you time and space to unplug, live simply and take pleasure in the smallest of details. Writing today’s post reminded me why we chose tipis for our own wedding – the laid-back atmosphere they instantly create and the freedom to choose a location put them right at the top of our list.

These days, families and friends are so often spread out across the country and beyond, it’s no surprise that many couples want to make the most of having everyone in one place and turn their wedding into to a weekend long celebration.

If you’re considering this for your wedding but don’t know where to start, then we have good news for you. Fabulous TNWC business Cariad Canvas, who provide luxury canvas accommodation for guests, have teamed up with Wedding Tipi to create packages that offer couples their very ‘pop up’ wedding festival.

Whether you’d prefer to choose a celebration tent and a honeymoon suite for the two of you, or want to opt for the full ‘Wedfest’ experience (with the option to add a festival stage, chill-out lounges, a glamping village for your guests and more!) the team can organise it, without you needing to source suppliers for each individual element. And with all the ‘big things’ taken care of, you’ll have more time to spend making and creating the details of your day.

I love that these sorts of weddings offer the flexibility to celebrate however you want to. For us, a tipi lit up at night was the perfect backdrop for a late summer campfire party with live music and they’d also be an amazing space for a picnic, mini festival or tea party.

Anna from Cariad Canvas told me there’s also an exciting new cinema yurt planned for this year, which sounds like a great idea and something fun to do with your guests in the evening if dancing isn’t your thing.
