Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Every wedding we host at The Salix Yurts is brilliant but the one which always stands out is the Harry Potter themed wedding. The effort the couple put in to transform the venue was amazing! It really did feel like you had walked in to Hogwarts!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Go with your heart - It is hard not to want to make everyone happy when it comes to planning your big day but ultimately, you need to make sure you make decisions based on what you both want. It is after all, your big day!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
My all time favourite has to be an outdoors blessing we had at The Salix Yurts. The groom was born in South Africa so the bride walked to the blessing under a fan fair of the South African national anthem, with the bridal party waving flags of the Yorkshire Rose & South African flag!
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Unique, Intimate, Quirky, Memorable, Amazing
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Blessings outside tend to be next to the Pond which is perfect for photos but in our opinion it must be the centre of the main Yurt. Couples first dances, cake cuttings, speeches and crazy dancing all occur here!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We regularly have Odd Job (villain from James Bond) appearing at the venue. (our wedding coordinator is nicknamed Odd Job!)
What’s your favourite canapé?
Mini Yorkshire Puddings with roast beef and horseradish.
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
We have lost count on how many trips we have made to get a Bog Mac after a long day hosting weddings.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
The Yurts themselves! Couples are amazed that they come fully dressed for a celebration!
What part of your business are you most proud of?
All of the wedding venues we have the pleasure and honour to be working alongside. It is amazing to be able to offer couples a choice of venues.
