Frequently Asked Questions
What are your prices & what's included?
What if it rains?
A key question asked by so many couples getting married today and every day! This year saw dry sunny days in winter and wet rainy days in summer.
This year at Overgrown Acres we have upgraded our Tipis with the purchase of three new giant Tipis, made in Britain from The Tipi Company in Bolton. They use the very best engineered materials including their waterproofing and testing. The Tipis are assembled using the latest in construction methods, making them the strongest manufactured Tipis available. Their design keeps them cool in the summer months and completely dry if it rains. We have included a full panoramic window across the front of the two Tipis, ensuring the views are retained; the window can be quickly raised or dropped in case of an unexpected downpour.
Can I wear my Jimmy Choos?
Yes, from the car park to the wedding Tipis we have a red carpet. The Tipis have a solid wooden floor throughout, providing a stable and firm flooring, with an added dance floor to dance the night away.
If you want to chill on our outdoor seating in the evening, around the fire-pits and watch the stars, why not include a pair of pumps/flip flops for later….
Are the Tipis heated?
Yes, we provide a heater for the Tipis and also a standby generator, in case the local electricity network decides on a power cut!
Are fireworks permitted?
At our Nottingham wedding venue, we are surrounded by beautiful countryside and with the animals on site, fireworks are NOT permitted, to ensure local livestock and pets are not distressed nor fires started on our neighbouring fields. We allow sparklers with advance notification.
Can I bring in my own caterers?
Yes you can, providing they are registered with their Local Authority and can demonstrate their EHO 5star rating plus Public Liability Insurance. We provide water and electricity to the Catering Marquee.
What bars & drinks services do you offer?
Our bars are provided though our own in-house team JMW Events; they provide a beautiful internal bar and a rustic outdoor bar. Both bars are fully stocked with beers/lagers, wines, spirits and soft drinks. Favourite tipples and a special draught beer can be brought in at your request.
Can I get married here?
Overgrown Acres Weddings are currently awaiting their legal licence to be confirmed. Until confirmed we regularly have wedding ceremonies at our Tipi wedding venue with a certified celebrant or Nottinghamshire County Council registrar who will meet with you, design and perform your individual ceremony within our venue; Tipis, meadows, woods.
If you choose this type of ceremony you are still required to attend a registry office to sign the licence before your wedding ceremony. Attending the registry office can be done anytime up to 365 days before you celebrate here.
Do I need a wedding planner or coordinator on the day?
Weddings are beautiful to plan but can also be time-consuming and stressful. We can recommend a Favourite planner to help you or you may choose your own as you wish. Our in-house event team will guide and help you to plan the perfect day. We work with many partners and are happy to assist as you introduce new partners for your individual venue set up. As part of our service, we include on-the-day coordination to look after you and your guests – just ask any of our team, they will all be in branded uniform.
