Newby Hall

We’re a little bit late with this blog post – almost a month overdue! Please excuse us, it’s been a very busy period here at The Canvas Tent Co. HQ. Our 2019 calendar is filling up and we’ve had a great time meeting our future clients at site visits around the North West, Wales and The Midlands.

Last month, we took a trip further up the country to meet the Will’s Marquees team at their open day. The location was Newby Hall; an 18th Century country house situated beside the River Ure. An idyllic spot for an outdoor wedding ceremony.

The marquee looked stunning, stood proud within the grounds of Newby Hall. The iconic flying lights and swooping silhouette came into view as we walked towards the structure. Festoon lighting surrounded the outside seating area, subtle fairy lights and floral displays decorated within. The round bar unit was at the focus of the set up, complete with beautiful bloomage above. Two flower rings circled the central king poles, adorned with green foliage, peach rose and ivory hydrangea. Simple wooden folding and cross back chairs were set around sizable vintage tables and stylishly decorated to compliment the rustic charm.

What an atmosphere! The grand space welcomed many visitors and the 12m X 34m hosted a great event with live music, Pimms Cocktails and a showcase of amazing suppliers.

We were privileged enough to get our photograph taken by the super talented Matt Sim – a friendly bearded bloke and a storyteller. His relaxed, personable demeanour enables him to capture and document candid shots and natural moments beautifully.

I was very much drawn to the Everybooth; a handsome, retro photobooth with a Mid Century design, handcrafted in Yorkshire. Founder of the unique photobooth experience, Susie chatted to me about their passion for quality. The Everybooth package offers a range of stylish accessories, modern backdrops and a luxury photobooth. After a beer, we couldn’t help but take centre stage and had a giggle doing so!

We were welcomed by the Will’s team with open arms and thoroughly enjoyed spending the day alongside them. We even had the opportunity to meet a few of our lovely clients too, which really got us excited about our opening season!

We’re out in the field with Green Farm Marquees next week and we can’t wait!
