If you’ve just got engaged you are bound to be excited, but planning a wedding can also seem like an overwhelming prospect. There’s so much to think about! How much budget do we have? Do we want a traditional venue, or are we looking for something a little different? What kind of theme do we want? Do we even WANT a theme?!
If you’re leaning toward a more outdoorsy celebration then we have a whole host of options to satisfy every taste and budget. The possibilities are endless, but one alternative you might not have considered before is a stretch tent – the latest addition to our range.
Stunning structures without STRETCHing the budget
Nowadays, it seems couples are under mounting pressure to spend the big bucks on making their day Pinterest-perfect. While we understand how easy it is to get sucked into making every detail social media worthy, it’s a good idea to take a step back and think about what is most important to you on your big day so that you don’t completely blow the budget.
For some, the ideal venue may well be a castle or a country house but for an increasing number of couples their vision involves something a little friendlier on the pocket while being just as pleasing to the eye – enter the stretch tent! Simple yet striking, our stretch tents are a cost-effective canvas for people having a more intimate affair, or for those looking for some extra cover for their ceremony, bar area or dance floor.
We believe that weddings should be a true reflection of you and your significant other – got a location in mind that holds a special place in your hearts? Perfect! Want to include those personal touches that a standard venue just won’t allow? Go right ahead! Choosing a stretch tent as the centrepiece for your celebrations means you can pitch up pretty much anywhere without worrying about having to navigate tricky logistical nightmares. It also allows you the freedom to decorate however you wish, from the elaborate to the understated, you can go to town.
From dusk ‘til dawn, come rain or shine
If you love the idea of bringing the outside in but worry that the weather might hamper your plans, don’t panic, we’ve got you (and your guests) covered! Our 10 x 6-metre stretch tents can be set up open or closed, offering you protection against the elements without the often claustrophobic feel of a traditional marquee.
Whatever the weather, this clever tent will take you seamlessly from wedding breakfast through to breakfast the morning after if you’re so inclined. With the addition of some simple lighting, you will be amazed at how stunning it will look after dark, so you and your guests can party like it’s 1999!

We all know the importance of a good checklist especially when it comes to the big day, just look online and find the month countdown checklist, the week before, the day before, the morning of, the photographer, the caterers, the entertainment, table plans, and the list goes on (and on).
You said yes, and you have the ring, so now it’s time to start thinking about the big day.
We all have a vague idea of what our wedding day will look like, we will have thought about it from time to time, traditional, rustic, boho, romantic, modern, vintage, intimate, festival, industrial, themed, and the list goes on.
So, the big day is almost here, 18 months of stressful planning, coordinating, choosing and negotiating, and with almost everything ticked off your ‘to do’ list apart from the one thing that you have absolutely no control over, (and hey this is the UK), the British weather!
At Events Under Canvas, our tipis and extensive range of tents and services do not just stop there… We are committed to providing your special event with more than just the canvas.
Even though our tipis may look spectacular on the outside, we want to ensure they look just as spectacular on the inside. Henceforth, we have put together a useful guide on interior styling inspiration and the finishing touches that will make your tipi look beautiful and idyllic inside, to truly create an exceptional day to remember.
Even though the weekend may have seen a bit of rain, after the rain there came a rainbow. Which brought lots of smiles and laughter to Bluegate Farm in Capel St. Mary last weekend.
Due to the difficult times and events of 2020, we didn’t quite think we would ever make it and put on the Showcase, however for yet another year running, the annual Tipi and Sailcloth Showcase was a great success.
After having to wait a year until the annual Events Under Canvas Tipi and Sailcloth Showcase, it is only now a few weeks to go until the rescheduled 2020 date. The team here at EUC are extremely excited to see all guests and suppliers over the course of the weekend.
