WiTW Hearts: Beneath The Canopy

We love outdoor weddings with lots of character…especially weddings where guests are able to stay overnight and hang with you late into the evening and into the next day. Beneath The Canopy offer just that.

They provide tiered levels of glamping for special occasions and creating magical bell tent villages, delivered to your chosen location. Their bell tents go hand in hand with festival style, bohemian and outdoor weddings and they have a range of guest tents and honeymoon bell tents for couple to spend a luxurious night under the stars.

What could be better huh?

We caught up with the wonderful Elise to find out more about Beneath The Canopy…

How did you come to be doing what you do? 

My husband and I are both musicians. We have performed and stayed at festivals over the years, and stayed in some weird and wonderful spaces. But I do love having the space & freedom of waking up to nature, so it was the bell tents that really appealed.

They have oodles of space and standing room, given their footprint. The romance of the great outdoors, fairy lights and fire pits just had me sold! From there I started to think more about it, more about the concept of creating these pop up magical spaces for people to enjoy and what better time to create something special than for someone’s wedding day!

What aspects of weddings do you love the most? 

Most of all, I love the fact that weddings really are one of the happiest and memorable days for people and we get to be part of that process. It’s a privilege. Your wedding day is one of those rare times in our busy lives that we get to have everyone we love surround us and share a moment that we can keep forever. It brings out the best in people and it’s wonderful to witness the excitement and joy of our couples & their loved ones.

What is your USP? How do you set yourself apart in the market? 

Our personal approach. I know how stressful & chaotic wedding planning can get, so I try to keep in simple. After all, you are probably going to speak to us a lot during the planning of your big day, so I think it’s nice to deal with someone that gives you reassurance they can deliver and that our clients can pick up the phone to when they feel they need to discuss anything.

I purposely don’t take on masses of events simultaneously, as I think this detracts from personal service we provide. I always end up knowing the names of our clients bridesmaids, groomsmen, family & friends almost off by heart by the time each event rolls around, so there’s a sense of familiarity when we set up their tents.

Are you keen to or have plans to launch any other products or services? 

There’s always something in the pipeline. We have some additional tents arriving in spring and have some interesting collaborations in store for summer, so it’s always a case of ‘watch this space’. Mostly I’m keen to work into our spaces more and make them better each season.

What does love mean to you… 

Good lord! What a question, but I’m sure we’ve all thought about it. Ultimately I think love is the only thing in the world that will make you put someone else’s needs equal to or above your own…selflessness. Saving the last chocolate digestive so that someone else can dunk it in their tea. THAT is love.
