To kick it off, where better to start than the guys who will be housing the fun – the structures.

We have the pleasure of working, yet again with the awesome County Marquees, Stretch Events and over the moon to welcome back, Wedding Tipi!

Our Nordic Giant Kata Tipi’s & Bedouin Stretch Tents are the perfect celebration tent for your extra special wedding day creating a unique atmosphere and ambience that all will remember.

Kata Tipi’s & Stretch Tents can house large or small gatherings linking together creating a wonderful event space. Single Giant Hats & Stretch Canopies are great for smaller gatherings  creating intimate and atmospheric spaces. For larger events multiple Tipi’s or Stretch Canopies can be linked together to achieve the ultimate wedding and celebration space.  Bespoke chill out areas can also be created in both structures. For Giant Tipi weddings we create chill out areas by utilizing our cosy Kungsornen Tipi decorated with low tables, leather cubes, internal fire pits. For Stretch Tent weddings we can create lounges within the main tent or create separate areas with additional tents linked to the main space or pitched separately using a matted walkway from one tent to the other with coloured flood lights.

“After I organised the very first Cwtchfest this year, I was invited up to Glanusk to discuss the possibility of working together. I have to say, you know that moment when you are looking for that perfect wedding venue and you just KNOW this is the place. well yes… that is totally how I felt.

I have this incredible good feeling about this venue! The staff are so warm and welcoming (at my first meeting I was expecting a bit of a corporate reception but was greeted with cwtches all round…I loved that and will never forget it!). Its safe to say i’m in love with it.

I do feel its the perfect venue to hold an outdoor wedding and with so many options available (which we can’t wait to tell you about in a series of upcoming posts) I do feel, you too will fall in love with it.

It’s perfect for CWTCHFEST and will no doubt help it grow into the best wedding event in Wales!” ~ Maria Farrelly 

The Glanusk Estate is a unique wedding venue in Powys, South Wales and can provide the perfect backdrop for your special day. Just take a look at that view!



We are also thrilled to be working alongside County Marquees & Wedding Tipi to bring you inspiring ways to showcase an outdoor wedding! Lots of great inspiring posts coming up from them too :)
