Full Description
Yurts are round domed tents based on the Mongolian Yurt (or Ger) and are constructed from treated timber and white canvas. Our yurts look gorgeous and once inside they feel solid, sumptuous and welcoming. We have lots of different yurt sizes available ranging from huge 44ft venue yurt to seat 140 people to 14ft bedroom yurts. The yurts can be used individually or linked together to create an amazing Yurt Palace for a reception with up to 250 guests. To decorate the yurts we have a huge range of textiles collected from around the world. We also have a collection of beautiful hand crafted furnishings including banqueting tables, bars, dance floors and wood burners. We love interiors and feel this is where we excel. Our yurts make wonderful bedroom spaces - a perfect solution for housing guests at your wedding. These Yurt Villages can be kitted out with a with a range of luxurious furnishings including proper beds and linen to ensure your guests get a seriously good nights sleep. Our bride and groom Wedding Night Yurts are also extremely popular. They are great for couples wanting to stay at their wedding reception till dawn but also have a stunning place to sleep. Our yurts are very popular for hen parties. Camping with a group of your best girl friends in a scenic place is great fun especially if you have a beautiful space for games and gossiping. We look forward to hearing about your wedding and helping create a fantastic day for you and your guests. Amy and Max Worthington Dugmore

"huge thank you for providing the fantastic yurt"
Just want to say such a huge thank you for providing the fantastic yurt for our wedding. It made such a fun, informal and beautiful setting for our reception and was so cosy in the evening with the fairy lights and candles lit. Everyone loved it and we couldn't have wished for it to be nicer. Thank you so much also for all your help and kindness and generally just being so lovely to deal with.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Our wedding of course! Held in a yurt palace on the banks for the Tamar Valley with all the people we love most dancing the night away. It was total magic.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful impactful luxurious stylish detailed

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am most proud of our business growth and the passion that has seen us develop from a one yurt company to a fully fledged family business with 1000's of successful weddings and events under our belt.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always plan for rain and then if the weather is bad on your wedding day you can still have the most amazing special day. Yurts are great for this as they are so warm and cosy especially with our wood burning stoves.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

At my sisters wedding she hand made every part of the wedding including table place names which were colorful houses like her house in Bristol. She hung hot air balloons from the ceiling so they looked like they were floating in the air....it was all amazing and in one of our yurts of course!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We can either discuss requirements in person, over the phone/zoom or via email and then supply quotes. We offer site visits if necessary. After a booking is made we are available any time to discuss details or make changes to the plan.

How do you create an ambiance in a marquee?

We have a huge range of fabulous textiles, cushions, furnishings and lighting packages which all contribute to creating amazing ambiance in our yurts. It is what we specialize in.

Where is the most exciting place that you have put a marquee?

On the top of Dartmoor in a huge storm was definitely exciting....it was dry and warm inside the yurt despite the location and weather conditions. That is why yurts are amazing.

What is your record time for putting up your marquee?

14ft yurt in 40mins - my team love to race each other. In all honesty we don't like to rush any of our builds and make sure that we leave enough time to really focus on the details.

What is your favourite design of marquee and why?

A yurt, no competition. They are solid, atmospheric, warm and dry when its cold, cool when its hot, made from natural materials, they are original and a talking point and they are beautiful.
