Wedding Exhibitions – 2017

This year the Shades team will be out and about showcasing all that is wonderful about marquee Weddings! Wedding fairs and exhibitions are a fantastic (and rare) opportunity to be able to see and walk around our marquees and tents before either booking, or just to be able to see them before your own celebration.

Here’s a round up of where we will be over the next 12 months.

After the huge success of Brides Up North’s Wedstock and Wedstival last year, this year is shaping up to be even bigger and better! We’re thrilled to be involved once again, and can’t wait to showcase our tents and talk about all that is marvellous about outdoor weddings.

Come and see us at Ripley Castle – one of Yorkshire’s most popular wedding venues, which offers a truly stunning marquee site with Castle views.

  • Sunday 19th March – Ripley Castle Wedding Fair, 11-3pm

The next 3 events offer the very best in everything to do with outdoor or marquee weddings.  They are a great opportunity to walk around a range of tents and marquees, from teepees to sailcloth tents, army tents to stretch tents and more in between.  With street food options, live music and a variety of top suppliers at each event, they really do offer everything that a couple planning a marquee wedding could wish for.

  • Sunday 7th May – #Wedstock17 at Stockeld Park, 11-4pm
  • Sunday 14th May – #Wedfest17 at Ormesby Hall, 11-4pm
  • Sunday 21st May – #Wedstival17 at Capesthorne Hall, 11-4pm

Bolton Abbey offers a stunning riverside location for marquee celebrations with unrivalled views of the Priory.  In conjunction with Dine, we are delighted to be a recommended supplier for this beautiful site.

  • Sunday 4th June – Weddings by the Waterside at Bolton Abbey, 11-3pm

Sunday 10th September – Castles & Canvas at Ripley Castle, 11-4pm

If you would like to know more about holding your celebration in one of our tents or marquees, do contact us on 0844 880 5445, or email us –  To register for any of the above Wedding Exhibitions, please see the Brides up North website – see you there!

I am writing this short note to express Dorothy and my thanks and gratitude for the excellent service that your Shades team delivered to us for our daughter’s wedding last Saturday. The marquee, the lighting, the furniture etc were all superb and created the “wow” factor that we were looking for. However, no matter how good the materials are, they are nothing without delivery and your Shades team was the epitome of Professionalism with the capital P. Everything was delivered in a seamle…
