Outdoor weddings are all the rage right now, giving you the creative freedom to create your own unique special day that’s beyond four walls.

But no outdoor wedding would be complete without a marquee or tipi, and we know just the company – The Unique Tent Company – who offer a diverse array of tipis and marquees across the North East, Scottish Borders and Cumbria.

Whether you’re after a boho winter wedding under a starlit sky in the Lake District or a contemporary, glamorous, and sophisticated day with chandeliers, fine dining and your own Champagne bar in the Northumberland countryside, The Unique Tent Company can make your wedding day dreams come true.

And it isn’t just tipis and marquees that they offer, the dedicated team go above and beyond what it says on the tin.

‘Simple is chic. Three Linked Giant Tipis, with long tables, cross-back chairs and an interior dancefloor and bar. Here we paired minimalist tables with interior lighting and rustic wooden tables to give a truly contemporary look. The exterior festoon lighting was added to give that wow factor. Wooden doors were added to give a feature entryway.’


‘This wedding utilised our Vintage Marquee structure with both interior and exterior festoon lighting. Clear panels allow an astounding view from the inside of the marquee and a light, airy atmosphere. Long wooden tables were laid out with cross-back chairs to give a traditional yet modern look. These were dressed with hessian table runners and foliage was hung overhead to give texture and a luxurious aesthetic.’


‘Our Sailcloth Marquee is ideal for creating a rustic boho theme. With the option for clear panels, they bring a light atmosphere creating the perfect setting. At this wedding, we paired our Sailcloth Marquee with our matted walkway to create an extended entryway.’


‘Our Nordic Tipis create the perfect winter wonderland atmosphere and will make any couple feel as though they’ve stepped into a magical winter world. From cosy shearlings on benches to rustic wooden furniture to fairy lights for a romantic touch, the options are endless to personalise the tipi to capture your personality as a couple.’ 

HLN TIP TOP: Don’t worry about the cold, The Unique Tent Company offers fire pits and other heating options to create a perfectly cosy warm atmosphere.
