The recent sunshine is sure to have brides and grooms dreaming of an outdoorsy ‘I Do’ – and how better to prolong the fun of your day than by camping overnight at your venue?
Yes, the outdoor fun needn’t stop at your ceremony or reception, as you can have your guests pitched up at your favourite outdoor space and spending the night partying away with you.
Here to explain why wedding camping is more than just a cool idea, is BoShow Festival vendor Laura of Portobello Tents. Read her thoughts on why you’ll love camping at your wedding, then tell us you aren’t thinking of spending your first night of marriage under the stars!
1. It’s an Experience
Gone are the days of weddings being arranged by the parents of the happy couple – it’s 2017 and it’s your day, so make it yours with elements you enjoy.
Sleeping under canvas in the great outdoors is a memorable addition to your wedding day and really great fun for all involved – so if nature or adventures are your thing, camping is for you and yours.
2. It’s as Sociable as You Want it to Be
Two in a bed, a solo adventure or somewhere for the whole family to bed down – your outdoorsy accommodation can be tailored to your needs.
As well as offering a variety of luxury options, we at Portobello also have various bed layouts to suit couples, friends and families, and for your guests we can create a private login page (like a wedding present list) from which they can chose and pay for the accommodation of their choice – simple!
3. It doesn’t Have to be Just One Day
The party doesn’t have to stop at midnight. Want to make a weekend of it? With Portobello, you have the tents for the entire weekend!
Settle in an evening before your big day, sunbathe on the grass the morning after, then have a Sunday picnic to giggle through the dancing antics of the night before. Everyone always says it goes too quickly, so don’t rush.
4. Tents look Pretty- Inside and Out!
Planning your wedding to be as picturesque as possible? Photographs are a huge part of the day and in our digital world, everyone is constantly snapping away.
Luckily, our tents really do add to the photo opportunities. They look so smart neatly lined up, or decorated with bunting gently moving in the breeze.
5. It’s Easy & a Problem-Solver
For those who love a good party but have to pull straws to decide who’s driving, camping at the venue solves a problem. Same goes for those planning a wedding that’s far from town and tricky for taxis.
With tents at the reception, no one needs to be a designated driver. Plus everyone gets to sleep in luxury once those dancing shoes come off, just yards from the dance floor!
