Fancy a unique wedding? Then get married in a Tipi!

Fancy a unique wedding? Then get married in a Tipi!

1 August 2018

You might be looking for a different way to celebrate your wedding day. A move away from the traditional sit down meal in an event room, to something more informal which reflects your lifestyle and personality.

If you love being outdoors surrounded by greenery and space, why not consider a tipi wedding? Traditional tipis add a sense of charm and character to the celebrations. At the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel, we can offer traditional tipi weddings within the hotel’s 26 acres of grounds. Nestled within the huge grounds, you’ll feel as though it’s just you and your guests. Enjoy the long summer nights or cooler autumn evenings; whatever the time of year the grounds provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding.

With a choice of a barbecue or buffet, you can select the menu option to suit. If you or your guests have any dietary requirements, we’d be happy to discuss these with you.

Outdoor weddings at the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes provides the best of both worlds, fabulous outdoor space in the Kent countryside to enjoy the celebrations, plus the comfort of overnight accommodation in the hotel for you and your guests.

Of course, you may be looking for a wedding venue that can offer a drinks reception outside, before a sit down wedding breakfast in a decorated event room. At the Mercure Maidstone, we can cater for that too. With a range of event rooms, we can be flexible to meet your needs, numbers and wedding set up.

If you’re looking to get married sooner rather than later, that’s no trouble either. Wedding lead times can suit you, from 2 months to 24 months, we’ll be happy to discuss what you’re looking for from your wedding venue.
