Introducing… Field Day Site Hire

♥ To see more from this blog, click through to our new site.

This post is for everyone who (like me) dreams of having a back garden the size of a field, so you can a) frolic in it with a plethora of pets and b) host a fab, outdoor celebration ~ right on your doorstep.

Field Day Site Hire offers something very close to that dream: serene, rural locations in some of the most picturesque areas in Yorkshire where you can host your own perfect wedding while your guests admire the commanding views.

They hire barns and land for marquees, providing an alternative to the traditional, indoor hotel-as-wedding-venue and giving you the freedom and flexibility to create a memorable and original event.

 Lauren from Field Day Site Hire said: “We give people the opportunity to have a marquee event even if they don’t have access to land themselves.

“The sites are all different but beautiful, they offer a blank canvas for any theme or atmosphere to be created.

“Some of our sites offer themselves to a countryside, ‘wellies on’ type of wedding others give the sophistication of being in the grounds of a Country Manor.

“The barns give a nice mixture between being indoors but in a fantastic rural setting and other sites give the sense of wide open space. Having a ‘festival’ style wedding seems to be the popular choice for 2012.”

Lauren and partner James are holding their own wedding at their Barmbyfield Barn site in December.

Field Day Site Hire have 14 sites with more coming on board (see full list of locations and descriptions below). They’ve just introduced a new location, the Secret Garden at South Dalton, East Yorkshire. I know, it sounds intriguing – but don’t worry, I’ll have some photos soon, so watch this space!

The barns can hold up to 120 sit down guests and the fields have an unlimited capacity. If you need help, Field Day Site Hire have recommended suppliers (but you’re not obliged to use them).
