Newlywed couples now have the option to stage their wedding reception at a new picturesque venue set in beautiful rolling countryside just outside Derby.

Croots Farm Shop at Duffield has teamed up with events specialist and tipi hire company Tipi and Kata to host regular wedding receptions in beautifully decorated tipis at the farm.

Starting from April 2019 and running through to October 2019, the venue will provide attractive tipis, bar facilities and home-made food prepared on site - all set against a stunning backdrop overlooking the Ecclesbourne Valley.

It will be able to cater for up to 140 guests – providing a unique rural wedding reception with a magical atmosphere.

“Steve and I had our own wedding reception in a marquee at the farm in September 1990, and over the years we have hosted a number of weddings in the fields around the farm,” said Kay Croot, who runs Croots Farm Shop with husband Steve.

“This partnership with Tipi and Kata means that we can offer superbly decorated tipis with an enchanting atmosphere, alongside a wonderful range of food and drink, and all the other items that really make the big day for couples.

“We have staged numerous events at Croots Farm Shop since we opened more than ten years ago, with super feedback, so we are very pleased to now be launching our new partnership with Tipi and Kata.

“Our experienced wedding planners will work with couples from start to finish to ensure they have a truly memorable day.”

Around 40 couples attended a recent open weekend at Croots Farm Shop to take a closer look at what the venue offers.

The packages include hire of tipis that are fully furnished with tables, chairs, dance floor, chill-out area, fire pit, bar, chandeliers and fairy lights, home-made food from a range of menus, luxury toilets, power and a number of optional extras, such as additional lights, an outdoor firepit and a themed canoe bar, all designed to make the special day memorable.

The menu choices include three-course meals with an extensive selection of dishes, wedding picnics, afternoon tea, BBQ items and evening options, plus a wide range of drinks including wine, bubbly, and Pimms.

Steve Barnes from Tipi and Kata said: “We have a huge love and passion for creating amazing and beautiful weddings and events, and are very excited to be launching a new partnership with Croots Farm Shop – an award-winning farm shop set in a stunning location just outside Derby.

“As fellow Derbyshire-based businesses, we are delighted to be joining forces to offer a unique new venue in the county, and in such a beautiful part of the UK, for couples to celebrate their special day.”

Situated only 15 minutes from Derby city centre and located on the B5023, just a mile from the main A6 running through Duffield, the venue at Croots Farm Shop is in a stunning countryside location that is easily accessible. The tipis are surrounded by mature trees and rolling parkland – creating a beautiful space for a wedding reception.
