Our cart is fitted out with period style industrial ceiling lamps, a reclaimed handmade bar with an illuminated glass front and many 1920s themed little gems. We have designed it so that you can actually walk in and be served at the bar from a double tap. It has the feeling of an original 1920s lounge that gives a warm homely welcome to all of our guests.
Our Dream Venues…
Over the past 8 years we have worked with so many fantastic venues but from 2019 we have chosen 5 venues in the Midlands area who are truly amazing. These five venues have each been hand picked firstly because they are gorgeous, but also each one has it’s own special features that may appeal to you. There is a write up and photos of each venue within our Dream Venues Brochure. Please download it and have a read through. Then if you would like to arrange a viewing, you can either contact as many of the venues as you choose for yourself or contact the girls in the office to arrange them for you. The contact details are included within each description. (If you do make contact with a venue please feel free to let us know so we are aware and can ensure that your enquiry is followed up quickly and efficiently.)

Daffodil Waves Photography
Hello and welcome to Daffodil Waves Photography, I am a professional Wedding Photographer, Birmingham located in West Midlands, although I shoot weddings in London, Manchester and Cardiff and all over the UK and abroad on destination weddings. Photography has long been my passion and I took it up professionally as I wanted to spend every day photographing beautiful couples on their wedding day. I consider myself a documentary wedding photographer, in other words I strive for my photographs to be relaxed and natural. I find this is the best way to capture the most elegant and beautiful photographs that you and your loved ones will be able to enjoy for years to come.
Finding your own venue
Internet searches on sites like Find A Field or Hitched can be a great place to start. Local sports clubs and village halls will often hire out their land to you at a reasonable price and campsites are also a good idea as they often come with some of the facilities included.
Alternatively you could give us a call at the office and see whether any of our venues suit your plans. In our opinion outdoor wedding venues can be divided into three categories, so have a think what would suit you best and then let us know and we will help you on your search...
Farms and Fields…
Farmland and fields are easy to hire and can work out a cost effective place to hold your tipi event. There are many farms that already hire out their land regularly, but if you find a local farmer willing to rent the land to you, you may need to get in touch with the council to arrange a temporary events license. (That's really easy to do). When you hire land it's fabulous because you have a completely blank canvas, however do bear in mind you may also need a generator and luxury toilets. You'll be pleased to know we have some excellent sub-contractors we work with so will be able to help you with that too if you like.
Venues with accomodation…
We have set up tipis in the gardens of some beautiful houses and holiday homes. Many of them have bedrooms or whole cottages where you and some of your guests can stay. Some will also have facilities such as power or toilets and may even offer to coordinate or run your bar for the event. These venues are usually slightly more expensive than having a field but do offer added luxury which suits some people.
Venues with a wedding license…
In truth there still are not many venues where you can hold an outdoor wedding that also has a wedding license, however some stately homes do offer this option. There are some absolutely stunning places across the Midlands including Keddleston Hall, Sandon Hall among others. The alternative is to get married at a register office prior to your tipi reception and hold a wedding ceremony outdoors or even inside the tipis. Our office staff are keen to help you with this option too, either finding a venue that can offer the license or creating a wet weather plan for an outside ceremony if that is the best option for you.
An Elite Tents’ Done For You Venue
In addition to our core Bespoke Tipi Hire service we also offer a completely Done for You service which means you literally don't have to think about anything. We have five Dream Venues where we offer this wedding package and we quote for the whole package: Venue, Tipis and Catering. We are also happy to pass you the details of these venues along with a bespoke tipi quote. DFY packages often suit those clients who live abroad or away from the Midlands area but there are others who also like the idea of everything being done for them. You can find more information and some photos of our Done for You venues in our Weddings brochure.

If, like many couples, you are looking for a heartfelt ceremony that expresses your personalities…I can help!
A Just Celebrations ceremony offers you the freedom and choice that the set script of a civil ceremony cannot provide.
By using a professional celebrant to create and conduct your personalised ceremony, you have the flexibility to incorporate content, music, traditions, symbolic rituals and beliefs of your choice….with no restrictions. You might be of mixed cultures. You might want an intimate marriage abroad, but have a ceremony in front of family and friends when you return. You might be looking at a location that isn’t licensed…
Your ceremony can be as traditional or as imaginative as you choose. If you’re looking for that ‘little something different’, you can incorporate symbolism that signify the union of two becoming one, for example, a Unity Candle Ceremony, a Ribbon Ceremony, a Sand Ceremony etc.

Ben The Cake Man
Looking for a Bespoke Wedding Cake? Choose Ben the Cake Man
After studying at the Birmingham College of Food, Ben gained his first job at the Manor Hotel, Meriden when he was 18, and with the encouragement of the Head Chef, Peter Griffiths, he began entering competitions for his cooking which culminated in my winning British Young Chef of the Year for 2 years running.
Ben moved to London, working in the kitchens of the Lanesborough Hotel and, subsequently, a number of Michelin starred kitchens in the Capital. He quickly became known for his attention to detail and developed inspirational and stylish cakes as his technique grew.
Since then Ben has developed even further, producing cakes for both celebrity and royal clients. He has also had the privilege of working in some of the world’s greatest kitchens. His work has taken him across both Europe ( Paris, Monaco, Lyon) and the Middle East (Oman, Muscat).
Ben believes that great work speaks for itself. For example, his cakes have been variously described as ‘works of art’, ‘exciting’ and ‘unique’. He hopes there is something on this site to inspire and delight you and at a price that you will be pleasantly surprised with.
Ben looks forward to making your cake!
The Festival Brides.…We are Laura and Kelly and have been friends since we were 12 years old. After becoming engaged (Kelly in 2010 and Laura in 2011) we both experienced the same hold backs in organising and planning our wedding days! Kelly felt lost after viewing venue after venue and saying no to every single one, feeling that everything wedding orientated was conveyor belt. Laura struggled to find a venue in Kent that could cater for the DIY festival style wedding she’d always dreamed of.
After discussing the issues over a glass of wine our free-spirited emotions were set free and Festival Brides was born!

Welcome Fine Food Matters. We are a highly-acclaimed Midlands-based events catering company offering catering services to private and business customers. We cover the whole of the Midlands and take bookings for special occasions from Christenings to funerals and everything in between.
All of team here at Decanter have been in the industry for many years, and have a wealth of experience in this sector.
We have been providing mobile bars and drinks for a few years now, creating bespoke menus, cocktail creations, and supplying bars and teams to many events. However, it wasn’t until our own wedding that we wanted something truly unique to complement the look and feel of our day; after searching we realised that there was a lack of bars that offered a talking point – yes they all served drinks but none that created lasting memories.
From this point on we decided to create The Stables, a converted horse trailer, to create a bar that we could take to any event across the country.
