Approved Wedding Suppliers

We know that your dreams will be as big as your day, so we don’t like to tell you what to do when it comes to a Graythwaite Wedding. We only ask that you work with our approved suppliers, when selecting caterers for the wedding day and marquee and tipi suppliers.

All our approved wedding suppliers have been handpicked. We wanted to ensure the quality of our suppliers’ products and services match our own. All our suppliers will be more than happy to discuss your ideas and see how they can make your visions work with your budget.

All of the tents are hand made in Yorkshire by Will’s Marquees. Their secret ingredients are traditional materials and old-fashioned know how. The end result; beautiful canvas and wooden pole marquees. Each and every tent creates a magical space for your Graythwaite wedding. If you are looking for something equally traditional and enchanting, then get in touch with Alex for more information.


Based just down the road in Cartmel, PSR is a local family business who provide a range of marquees. Their structures can accommodate 90 – 200 guests, in either lined or clear marquees. The lined marquees are both timeless and traditional. On the other hand, the clear marquees provide a more contemporary feel, whilst allowing you to enjoy the views across Lake Windermere whatever the weather. For more information email Sarah.

Special Event Tipis

Dav, Kate, Amy and the rest of the incredible Special Event crew are like family to us. They have been working with us for several years, and as a result know the Graythwaite Estate inside out. It should therefore come as no surprise, that they can be relied on to provide the highest level of customer service, from enquiry to de-installation. Their tipis offer everything from clear sides to enjoy those lake views, to fire pits for toasting those all important marshmallows. We are spoilt to be one of their lakeside wedding venues.

If you’re looking for something alternative, look no further. Twinkling lights, flower balls, antler chandeliers and Chesterfield sofas are just the beginning! Contact Amy on for more information.
