    Detailed Description

    We supply an affordable solution for creative and colourful reception events, wedding breakfasts and parties.
    We have a large range of unique tents, marquees and equipment and a fresh approach to the challenge.
    We work with you to develop your style.
    We have hundreds of photographs of previous events that help and find that every event is almost totally different. Relax and get creative.
    We love you getting involved, sewing bunting, providing flags, choosing styles of furniture, creatingbamazingbtable dressings. It's really handy to chat lots and see a sketch of your ideas, how you would like it all to look, from the walk up first impressions to the interior.

    We have many styles of tent, colourful candy striped and cream canvas. The red and white ranges are very popular and create stunning events, whilst the different looking arched canvas tent we have satisfies the slightly more traditional look...but please don't get too traditional! Flouncy linings, chandeliers and cheesy discos are not our bag!
    They can fit up to 350 -400 guests at tables with plenty room for partying. The usual is around 100-250... Wow catering for guests beyond 200 is a big job!
    We have a range of drapes and fabrics and some delightful velvets reminiscent of vintage, Victoriana and theatre.
    Lighting is often a mix of fairy lights, festoon, lanterns and up lighting and we have some party lights and glitter balls of course.
    There's so much more we can help with but you have to get in touch first!

    Browse our blog wedding category for ideas or check through some of the popular wedding blogs and you should find us ..especially via circus wedding search.


    - What is your most memorable wedding?
    to be honest... we only do so many each year rather than trundling them out one ofter the other, so all of them get personal attention and last a long time in the memory. As they are more involved, the long distance ones, like in Scotland or Ireland have a big impact.
    - Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
    Unique, alternative, festival, circus, theatrical
    - What about your business are you most proud of?
    Carving our own path. Hey.. we did our own diy wedding way back in 1993. A beamed village hall, friends doing catering, others dressing up as chauffeur with polished red 2CV, an arch of jugglers as we left the register, a Cajun band playing the music, a circus cabaret. Did we start the DIY wedding thing??!!
