| OUTDOOR WEDDING VENUE | Step Inside Overgrown Acres
If you’re looking for a rustic, outdoorsy wedding venue surrounded by meadows and woodland, tucked away in the Nottinghamshire countryside, then look no further than Overgrown Acres.
The most idyllic setting for a wedding, the owner Michelle’s families animals have grazed the land for over 25 years before deciding to develop the land, converting the cow shed into a home and the overgrown woods into new grassland and wildlife areas. With three magnificent tipis made in Britain by The Tipi Company, the opportunities are endless here.
Here we talk to Michelle about this lovely, unique wedding venue;
So, Michelle, talk us through what happens at a wedding day at Overgrown Acres:
We have 7 acres of meadows and woodlands; the amount of space means you can have your weddings and festival layout where ever you want, so many couples are different – some have the service outside the tipis, some in the woods. Your choice, your day.
Describe your tipis, what are they like:
Our tipis are provided with a rustic dressing, ivy and fairy lights round each of the 27 tipi poles, bay trees with white roses on the outside of the tipis, allowing either the rustic finish or a base for you to add your individual styling too. Outside an array of furniture and fire pits allow the evening to be enjoyed by all. We offer an eco-site and like to recycle as much as we can, we don’t like plastic.
Can couples legally get married at Overgrown Acres?
You can get married here via a celebrant providing you’ve done the legal bit before. We hope in 2021 the legislative changes will allow the full ceremony and celebrations to be here.
What food and drink options are available?
We have our preferred caterers from traditional, BBQ to street food, but you’re free to bring your own subject to their Local Authority Licence and Insurance. We have the most amazing log chill out den complete with fire pit, sitting around 20 people, ideal for that 5 minutes time out and offer both an indoor and outdoor bar. Our standard 3 days package from 1pm day before to 11am day after, gives you time to create your perfect day.
Can wedding guests stay over and make a weekend of it?
We allow small groups of camping to enjoy the weekend festivities: bring your own tent or join with one of our partners (see our website for more details). The Bridal Studio is our gift to you and gives you on site choice for hair & make up for the bridal party and/or somewhere to walk to under the stars at midnight when your guests have gone, providing a self-contained area of bedroom, lounge, kitchen and bathroom for you to reflect upon the day with your own nightcap.
Is there anything else we need to know about your amazing wedding venue!?
Within the woods we also have a great play area for the children, a variety of swings, climbing frame, tree house and Wendy house.
