Looking for something a little different to a marquee wedding? The Gardens Yalding is home to two interlinked tipis that will give your wedding reception a real wow factor


If you're looking for something a little bit different to a standard marquee wedding, venture no further than The Gardens Yalding. Just a few miles from both Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells, this stunning country wedding venue not only boasts a converted barn and beautiful grounds, but two interlinked tipis or teepees!

What is a tipi?


A tipi or teepee / tepee is a canvas structure shaped like a cone. It is similar to a yurt which is round in shape. What makes a tipi distinct from other similarly-shaped marquees is that it has smoke flaps at the top. Here at The Gardens Yalding we have two linked tipis that adjoin The Barn.

The Tipis offer a truly magical space for your sit-down wedding meal or evening reception. Romantic fairy lights cascade down from the wooden beams while the fire pits exude subtle light and warmth to create a serene ambience. The sides of the tipis can also be lifted to reveal impressive views of the gardens.

What size of wedding party can The Tipis accommodate?


The Tipis at The Gardens Yalding can accommodate up to 140 guests for a sit-down wedding breakfast and up to 240 people for your evening reception.

How much is a tipi wedding?


Prices vary depending on the size of the wedding party, day of the week, and time of year, but please see our wedding packages price list for more details. And remember, The Gardens Yalding is an exclusive-use venue so as well as The Tipis, you and your guests will also have exclusive use of The Barn with Bridal Dressing Room and the ceremonial Gazebo, as well as our stunning grounds.

Can you have a winter tipi wedding?


Yes, you can! The beauty of the tipis is that they are cool during the summer months and are warm during the winter months. They are also completely waterproof so a rainy day is not a problem either. So, if you have your heart set on a winter tipi wedding, The Gardens Yalding is the perfect choice throughout the year.

The Tipis can accommodate up to 140 people for a sit-down wedding breakfast or up to 240 people for an evening buffet.
