Over the Easter weekend, I was invited to what promised to be a day full of wedding pretty; an open day and photo shoot for Hooe’s Yurts in Devon, to celebrate the completion of their huge new 44ft yurt. They’d got so many marvellous Cornish and Devonshire wedding vendors involved, and they had a lot of cake ~ what’s not to love?
Sadly, I couldn’t make it (most unlike me to turn down hanging out with lovely wedding vendors and scoffing cake, but I was heading off on a mini holiday with my family). Thankfully, Amy and Max have kindly kept me posted, and have provided us with a report on the day along with some gorgeous photos by Rosie Parsons, so I don’t feel that I missed out entirely!
So, I’ll stop wittering and let those guys tell you all about it…
Over the Easter weekend Hooe’s Yurts hosted a photo shoot and open day to celebrate the completion of their huge new 44ft yurt. It was a fantastic day supported by some excellent local wedding suppliers and enjoyed by a crowd of happy guests. Lots of cake was eaten and the yurt had the joyous christening it deserved.
Hooe’s Yurts provide stunning tents for wedding receptions, hen weekends and wedding nights. We specialise in decorating the yurts with exotic textiles creating beautiful stylish venues. A brilliant alternative to a traditional marquee and perfect for adding the wow factor to your wedding day. Along with large venue tents Hooe’s Yurts also supply luxury bedroom yurts which are perfect for creating your own wedding hotel and honeymoon bedroom.
Our new 44ft yurt is a cathedral sized structure with the capacity for 120 guests to dine under its majestic high ceiling. This wonderful structure can be linked with other large yurts to create a yurt palace ideal for big weddings. For the open day, we added a little chill out snug with a wood burner to show how it is possible to create alcoves off larger yurts. These alcoves are great for entertaining children or for guests to relax in after some serious dancing!
Joining us for the photo shoot and providing all the little touches for a boho country wedding were some lovely local suppliers. The vintage crockery was supplied by the The English Tea Party who specialise in original vintage crockery and accessories. Charlie Scribble who designs simple and unusual wedding stationary made some bespoke yurty place names to adorn the dinner table. The model and actress Daisy Dugmore looked stunning dressed in a vintage inspired gown by Kula Tsurdiu provided by The Ivory Secret in Crediton. She held a hand tied bouquet made by Joanna Game Flowers. Nat Haydon, who recently set up the new wedding planning and venue styling company Jolly Good Wedding, dressed the little chill out sung yurt with her exotic bollywood props and put together a charming vintage table plan ladder. The yurt exterior was decorated with striking bunting from Big Beautiful Bunting, wedding signs from Muddy Creek Signs and huge vintage fabric parasols from Sunbeam Jackie. Finally and most importantly all the photos were taken by the talented and award winning Devon wedding photographer Rosie Parsons.
We’d like to thank everyone who took part in the photo shoot and attended the open day. Roll on the summer…!
