I am sitting here writing this blog post, wrapped up in a blanket in front of the fire, I love this time of year when life slows down and offers us time to reflect, I have been looking back at our 2016 season and it was amazing in so many ways. So here’s the first instalment of the Wedding Yurts 2016 Season Review…
Most importantly, let’s talk about the weddings and this year’s were so wonderful. All in all, we hosted sixteen yurt weddings around the country this season and every single one of them will stay in my memory for years to come. There was love, laughter, fun and feasting and each couple put their own stamp on our yurts. It’s a treat for us to see the yurts used so differently at each wedding and I love working with our couples to make their yurt wedding a really personal occasion.
We don’t often blow our own trumpets (usually because we’re on the road and too far from this blog!) but I have been so very proud of my team this season that I have to share just a snippet of some of the feedback we’ve had from our lovely clients:
“We genuinely couldn’t have asked for any more from Lizzie or her team. The team were so just efficient, conscientious and professional and, to be honest, they were just part of the day with us. Everything was perfect.” Alice & Fraser, August 2016
Isn’t that just fabulous? But, this season saw even more brilliance because, in addition to sixteen weddings, we also hosted three fantastic styled shoots and all have been featured in some of our favourite places.
Our first was our annual spring shoot and we were all delighted to see Natural Beauty on the superb wedding blog, Love My Dress
The cocktail garden has been such a huge hit and I’m still dreaming about those cakes!
We also created an ‘Eco Festival Wedding’ which was featured on The Natural Wedding Company

and our delicious summer cocktail shoot with Chase Vodka sparkled on Mr. & Mrs. Unique. We know it’s not *strictly* summer any more but I promise you that these cocktails will be just as tasty now if you fancy a little tipple!

And that’s not all! Our season finished on a huge high when one of our weddings starred on the front cover of the new Mr. & Mrs. Unique magazine! The full wedding feature can be found inside and this magazine is a great free read so why not curl up and have a look?

In the second part of our season review, I’ll be looking back on some of the special places we visited and the awesome people that we met but, for now, keep cosy and enjoy the beauty of early autumn.
