Bell tent hire for weddings and events: the perfect accommodation option

Bell tents are versatile, chic, and affordable, making them excellent temporary accommodation for weddings, special events, festivals, and celebrations.

This article explains why bell tents and events are a perfect match and introduces you to affordable and chic bell tent hire for your special event. Let’s dive in!

What is a bell tent?

But first - what on earth is a bell tent? A bell tent is a multipurpose shelter that allows you to sleep in the great outdoors comfortably.

The structure is held up by a central pole and supported by rebar stakes, ensuring you are well-protected from the elements during your stay.

People think bell tents look a lot like yurts, and while they’re not the same, they both offer super comfortable sleeping arrangements in the great outdoors.

Once up, a bell tent is spacious enough to walk around and can accommodate several beds and even a table and chairs, making it ideal for glamping. We offer bell tent hire for weddings and parties, and bell tent hire for festivals and events, corporate and sporting occasions - but more on this later. Let’s examine why bell tents and weddings are a match made in heaven.

Why are bell tents ideal for weddings?

We’re not exaggerating when we say that bell tents and weddings are a match made in heaven.

Let your guests enjoy a romantic night under the stars, somewhere dry, warm, and comfortable to spend the night after celebrating your special day and perhaps dancing the night away.

Here are some reasons why bell tents are perfect for weddings and special events.


Okay, let’s start with the most important point - bell tents are incredibly comfortable. We don’t know about you, but the idea of sleeping under the stars is far nicer than a stuffy hotel!

A bell tent is like an outdoor hotel room and provides exceptional comfort to guests.


Unlike other forms of camping, bell tents offer great privacy, letting guests retreat to their space to relax after being surrounded by people for most of the wedding or special event.

Protection from the elements

As much as we love the great British summer, it’s impossible to guarantee good weather. If an unexpected rainstorm arrives while guests are outside, a bell tent offers excellent protection from the elements and means they won’t get drenched and dirty.

Let them return to the tent to sit out the worst weather, keeping dry and comfortable. Bell tents are weatherproof, and you don’t need to worry about rain seeping through the fabric at night.

Aesthetically pleasing

Another reason to consider bell tent hire for weddings and special events is that they’re aesthetically pleasing. Setting up a collection of bell tents provides a chic and sophisticated look for your event, elevating the setting and providing a touch of class.

Bell tents genuinely look the part when set up, and hosting a glamping village at your event is a super way to treat your guests.

Ease of installation

People don’t necessarily realise that bell tents are extremely easy to set up and install. Our team takes care of the installation process and can have your tents up quickly, letting you focus on other aspects of the event.

The same is true for taking the tents down, making bell tents the perfect temporary accommodation solution for your occasion.
