Wedding Open Weekend Henley 2020
Together with our friends from the Culden Faw Estate and Sojo Kitchen we planned and held a wedding open weekend by the river in Henley-On-Thames.
There are many fantastic event locations on the estate but we were drawn to the beauty of Greenlands Park being waterside. Having the marquees so close to the water was magical and it felt truly unique.
The pitch is available for private hire and we think it makes a pretty magical wedding location.

Lets take a look at what went on during the wedding open weekend and introduce you to the suppliers that helped us make it all happen.

For the event we wanted to showcase two different sizes of marquee and with different interiors to help guests envisage how dynamic the spaces can be. Whether you are planning a large event for 200 guests with a separate bar structure or a small gathering for just 30 guests we hopefully had this covered with our 12 metre and 9 metre marquees.
The layout was designed as an L-shape comprising of the 12×27 metre main marquee for dining and dancing, and a 9×16 metre marquee for a bar and lounge. Both tents were facing the water with an area out front for chill out seating.
Time for a drink
The space complete with velvet sofas, Weaver Green soft furnishings and beautiful ceramics sure was a cosy place for guests to relax and enjoy the view.
A huge thank you to the team from Virginias Vintage for coming all the way from Devon.
Come in and take a look.
The bar and flower ring help to divide the space creating rooms in the marquee. The flower ring styled by Joanne Caldwell was a real show stopper especially later when the sun went down and the lights came on.
Inside the main marquee we had 5 different table plans creatively styled by the group. Crockery was supplied from Classic Crockery, stationary by Studio Anika and floral design by Joanne Caldwell.
All the tables were exceptional but we especially loved the rustic trestles with woven place mats, decorative glassware and pastel florals.
A bit of fun.
Let there be light.
The main marquee was glowing!
To achieve this we lined the walls with up lighters and had four profile lights which projected patterns onto to the canopy. Combined with the fairy lights and hanging pendants on the bar the whole space looked incredible.
Thank you all for your help and support:
