Take heart in the knowledge that you can now create the ultimate small-but-perfectly-formed wedding - avoiding months of stress and a potential mountain of debt.
Create poetic and magical environments in perfect proportions of 15, 30 and 50. You can focus on creating a poetic and magical experience for your Elopement for your guests.
Our Frame Tents start at a divine 6mx6m - ideal for Intimate weddings of 15 and up - and are available in our most popular wedding interiors: Cornish Cream and William Morris. Or for slighly larger guest numbers, the 6mx9m tents accommodate a 30-strong socially-distanced dinner with 3ft round tables seating 4 apiece. Our gorgeous Mini Pearl boasts 6mx6m internal floor space and makes a stunning White Wedding backdrop with a surrounding veranda. And for socially distanced Micro weddings for 30 the Round Oyster Pearl makes a perfect option.
Organisational matters aside, there are some advantages to slimming your guest list down to the bare essentials - to those most cherished friends and family upon whom you can now lavish the most decadent extravagance.
The finest food and wine can be served in an exquisite setting styled precisely as you desire. The pace can be relaxed and the entire party can dine at the same time. Everyone will hear your toasts and speeches without the need for a mic.
Most importantly, the focus will shift back to what really matters: you and your beloved declaring your union before those people who comprise your life - your core crew; your dream team. And connecting those people is what it’s all about.
Intimate weddings are the way forward!
Your conduct needs to consider the most vulnerable members of your group. The measures you put in place need to be clear and reassuring. If you’re using a venue find those that are doing this well. Increased hygiene, clearly marked one-way systems, adequate PPE for staff, additional safety measures for food prep and service and space for social distancing.
A beautiful, covered area outside with twinkling lights and candles provides the perfect space for relaxed socialising, with tables scattered for breakaway groups to mingle within bubbles or households.
So accept the things you cannot change. Your perfect mini-wedding dream can be a reality.

Arabian Tents were outstanding from start to finish. They couldn’t have been more accommodating when we scaled down our wedding due to Covid, and created the most magical setting for our micro wedding. Every little touch was meticulously thought through, from the layout of the outside furniture to the placement of each fairy light in the tent. Our guests all commented on the wonderful Cornish Cream interior of the tent and it felt as though we had to been transported back in time. The set up and dismantling of the tent was unobtrusive and professionally managed, and Katherine made us feel at ease with every query we had, suggesting expert suppliers and providing detailed plans throughout.
