Most Incredible Venue
We had our wedding at The Salix Yurts and it was just the most incredible venue. Thank you so much to James, Lee and all the rest of the wonderful Louisiana's gang! They were extremely accomodating and helpful, even when we threw in some wildcards like "is it ok if we have archery?" (went down an absolute storm with all of the guests and thankfully nobody died). Honestly just can't big these guys up enough, wonderful people who just couldn't do enough to ensure that we had the best day. All of the love, Dan and Sarah x

Amazing Wedding Planning Team
What an amazing wedding planning team! James and Lee supported us right through our planning and lead up to our wedding and nothing was too much trouble. Our wedding at the Salix Yurts couldn't have more like we had dreamt of and a big part of this was down to these guys! James your support on Friday getting the wedding venue sorted really was amazing and you went the extra mile to get / do what ever we needed! On Saturday, the day of our wedding, James made sure all my requests to turn on lights, put flowers on tables outside etc were done and I had compete trust I would arrive at our reception and he would have everything in check, I was so right, he was stood smiling with our arrival drinks and he and the bar team (Lousianna mobile bars) continued to support us all day and night. Truly Amazing! Thank you xxxx

Could Not Have Hoped For a Better Venue
Me and my wife Charlotte had our wedding at the Salix Yurts last week and could not have hoped for a better venue. Although we opted for a more DIY kind of do, Lee, James and the team went above and beyond to help us make it happen. Despite the terrible weather they made it a night to remember and our guests had nothing but nice things to say about the venue and team. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a wedding venue that is a little bit different but still is very convenient. 10/10

Whole Team were Incredibly Professional
Lee and his team at Louisianna's did an absolutely amazing job for our wedding in April 2018 at the Salix Yurts in York. During the planning stages Lee was really helpful, always at the end of the phone as and when needed him, and you could see he is really passionate about his company and wanting to make our wedding a real success. On the day itself, the whole team were incredibly professional, the personalised cocktail menu and bar service was really great. A big hit with pretty much everyone was the Gin Tin, loads of lovely drinks to be had, very thoughtfully put together. We heartily recommend Louisianna's!!

Harry Potter Theme
Just had my daughter's wedding at the salix yurts, wow. The whole day was fantastic.she had a Harry Potter theme and the setting was perfect. Lee, Jenna and Nicola were brilliant and a big thank you to all the other staff that made the day so special. The gin tin was great with the bar tender (sorry forgot his name) having so much knowledge and so pleasant. Would fully reccomend anyone one having their special day here. Many many thanks.
