Round Oyster - The Dream Cloud


Coined as a 'Dream Cloud' at its grand reveal, and often referred to by our clients as 'The Posh Round Tent' the Round Oyster Pearl Tent looks as spectacular during the day as it does when illuminating against the night sky.

The tent is made from off-white canvas and is comprised of two 6m sections of curved canvas that are joined in the middle to create a 12m diameter circular tent that requires 16m diameter in which to erect it.

Inside it has a a billowing flat white lining and one central pole in the middle of the space, which can be dressed with a foliage chandelier or cherry blossom and comes wrapped with fairy lights.  The high peaked ceiling and white billowing lining gives an intermittent feeling of space and light.

The blank canvas that is created by this round tent can be draped to great effect.  The pictures in the gallery show a couple of different styles including the decedent 'Club Ciaro' look that involves using gold lame, organza and voile fabrics to create a lustrous and decorative environment that is lit with festoon lighting and fairy lights to create a magical look.

This Luxury Round Tent is a popular option for Micro Weddings and Intimate weddings that have been Covid-secure options during 2020 and 2021 as it comfortably accommodates up to 50 people for a wedding breakfast with space for a bar, dance floor and lounge seating.  This round tent is also perfect as a champagne/reception area for a larger wedding, as  a whimsical garden party tent, or for a special birthday.

As with the Frame Tent Collection, clear walls can be used instead of canvas ones to maximise the setting and view, making best use of the light that is drawn in through the clear walls, and keep guests warm during the evening.

Cotton ropes hold the structures up and give it their strength, and because of this can only be erected on grass.

This tent comes floored with coir carpeting and lit with fairy lights under the lining.

What is the maximum capacity for the Round Oyster tent?

Answer: 120 people

Depending on how many guests you have, whether you are dining, and if you want a dance floor and other seating and chillout areas, will determine what size of tent you will require.

This table provides a good reference to work out what kind of space you will need. If you are having an even bigger party than our maximum capacity, we suggest putting more tents together!

What spacing requirements should I consider?

Answer: The minimum space you will need is 16m diameter for the Round Oyster

This area takes into account the tent itself as well as the guide ropes, which need 2 metres around every side to ensure it is set up safely. Use the chart above to work out exactly how much space you will need.

Being frame structures our tents can be erected on hard standings such as tennis courts, concrete car parks and gravel drives and this requires eye bolts to be drilled into the floor. Because of their construction, they require the area where they are being erected to be level. Scaffolding can be put in place to level areas that have too much of a slope to them. However, if the ground is slightly uneven then a hard-flooring upgrade can be used to level out the floor within the tent.

How long does it take to set up?

Answer: The Round Oyster takes 1 day to set up

Our tents vary in size, some of our smaller tents can be set up in a few hours, whilst our largest tents can take several days. The build would ideally begin on Monday or Tuesday to ensure everything is ready for a Saturday event.

To give you an idea of the build and what to expect at your party, here's a time-lapse of one of previous events.

Are the tents waterproof?

Answer: Yes, they are waterproof

The exteriors are made from high quality cotton canvas which is regularly waterproofed throughout the season. It is important when positioned on windy sites to put in additional supporting poles inside the tent to support the pyramid ceiling, to ensure they can endure winds of up to 30 mph.

Will the tents be warm enough?

Answer: Yes, they are easily heated

Our tents can be easily heated on cool days as their vented elevated ceilings and canvas exteriors are geared towards providing shade on a hot day rather than warmth on a cool one.

When would you take them down?

Answer: The following day

We would come and take them down the following day (usually a Sunday).

Do you need a power supply?

Answer: Yes

We will always require power. Most lighting can run from a 13-amp domestic supply or a generator. Our cabling is weatherproof.

How much will it cost?

Answer: Varies (See examples)

Every single party and event is unique, however, we have given a few examples below to give you an idea of how much it might cost.
