On the most important day of your life you would like everything to be perfect – from the dress to the wedding reception at your Nottingham Tipi venue.

However one thing that you can’t predict in advance is what the weather will be on your special day and if it rains… well, wet bride, lucky bride!

At Overgrown Acres your wedding will be special in any weather conditions. Our wedding tipis are watertight and have detachable panoramic windows used for summer downpours. Don’t worry, you won’t get wet, we provide the same weather protection as any formal building, our huge windows retain the great views and rustic ambience. Our watertight tipis with their panoramic windows provide the same comfort as hotels too and their gardens!

We believe we have planned for any bad weather, with your consent we keep our back wedding tipi clear during your daytime celebrations allowing it to be doubled up during the day if bad weather persists to provide an intimate plan B setting for your wedding ceremony warm and dry, with your chosen celebrant.

Start to think now of what you can do to maximise the day if it rains; plan to stay in the tipis OR provide wellingtons, umbrellas, flip-flops and blankets for guests and ‘Dance In the Rain’.  Consider umbrellas in your wedding colour palette,  umbrellas are a nice favour idea for your guests and very welcomed if the weather turns wet, they are also very useful as a sun parasol to shade from the summer sunshine.

A strapless gown is beautiful, think about adding a pretty coordinated jacket or shawl, just in case, maybe even a pair of boots or wellingtons.

Check out Shade Bridal Boutique one of our preferred partners, a personalised denim or faux leather jackets, which are perfect not only for a rainy day, but add a touch of rock star to your bridal outfit.

Last but not least, a grey sky does add a natural beautiful filter to your images, not to mention that wedding photos with umbrellas are sooo romantic!

So, don’t worry if it rains in your wedding day, everything will bring a smile to your faces, treasure the memories.  Your Nottingham tipi wedding will be very special, unique and natural, absorbing the outdoors, remember rain is part of our English weather.

The most important moment is when you both say ‘I do’ nothing else matters.
