Fell in Love with this venue!
wow what can I say! The salix yurts was the first venue we ever looked at last year and we fell in love immediately and saved a date there and then with the amazing James, With our original day pretty much planned out and sorted by February 2020 covid then happened. After such a stressful few months not knowing if we would be able to use our beautiful venue weddings were back on again 1 week before our day! we want to say a HUGE thank you to Lee at louisianna weddings who has been an absolute legend throughout this crazy year and being so positive and reassuring throughout.. the hard work and effort put in, with only one week to go- making sure everything was covid secure and within guidance but also making sure we all had a great time still you all made it look so easy when I know alot of hard work was put in. it was simply amazing from start to finish and we most certainly will book for another night there again. from the bottom of our hearts thank you it was simply perfect ❤

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

Love This Venue!
We have the pleasure of being the bar provider for this venue and it is definitely one of our favourites to be at. Unique, quirky, intimate yet great atmosphere! Couples we meet are ones who are looking for something a little less traditional and want a more relaxed informal atmosphere. They certainly get that here!

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.
