I’m really pleased to feature this today as I’m so thrilled by a very new and exciting development in the wedding industry. Lizzie Jones, who runs Wedding Yurts, is not only one of the nicest people I’ve met in my job so far (she really is!) but she’s also got something pretty special to offer.

Her company, Wedding Yurts, is launching a special wedding package, designed to provide couples with an all-inclusive wedding day based on the yurt, the highly popular alternative venue to the “traditional” marquee, and set in a stunning countryside location in the Cotswolds called The Old Farmhouse – with more locations also planned.
Personally I think this a flipping marvellous idea – tents are typically very expensive and complicated to style and dealing with 100s of different suppliers can become a real headache (believe me!) especially when you have to coordinate everyone and explain your ideas a million times.

Lizzie, who’s collaborated with another exceptionally lovely lady, Clare Lee of Lilyfee Floral Designs to offer this package, says: “We wanted to make it easier for couples to be able to choose the yurt option for their wedding day and provide not just the setting but an all-in-one package. It’s already proving to be incredibly popular!”. The package includes hire of the yurts and all facilities, catering, bar, floristry, styling, photographer and more. It is designed to make the costs of a yurt wedding clear and affordable with one point of contact to ease the planning stresses.
So, getting to the point, Lizzie and Clare will be launching the new package with a fabulous garden party, in the grounds at The Old Farmhouse, an 18th century farmhouse overlooking miles of unspoilt Cotswolds countryside. The English tea party will be on Sunday 6th May – Under the Vintage Veil readers are warmly invited to come and see the yurts in their setting, enjoy tea and strawberries and chat to Lizzie and Clare and the team about the package offer.
Also, John and I will be there with bells on and we’d be thrilled to meet you guys! All the info is below – please do RSVP to the listed email address to secure your place!
