The wedding venues that already said “I do” to our shepherd huts

There are so many wonderful reasons to love shepherd huts. With a recent study detailing how the Covid-19 pandemic and associated lockdowns changed the nation’s relationship with nature for good, more and more people are embracing outdoor living spaces like shepherd huts in their spare time, including during special occasions like weddings!

In this blog post, we take a closer look at why wedding venues everywhere are falling in love with this unique accommodation option.

Why do shepherd huts work for wedding venues?

The humble shepherd hut has long been a fixture in the realm of outdoor living. From rustic beginnings, these unique accommodation options have received a makeover in recent years courtesy of our talented craftspeople, and the most sustainable and thoughtfully sourced materials.

Charming and characterful, our shepherd huts are designed to be different, offering the luxurious experience marrying couples and wedding guests in particular crave. In addition to being extremely desirable to guests, they offer a versatile option for wedding venues looking to increase their capacity without the upheaval or disruption.

Who is already using our shepherd huts?

We have a legion of happy clients across several sectors, including the wedding industry, and they’re already seeing impressive returns from their hut investments.

Chatsworth Estate’s Heathy Lea is just one client who chose to expand their hospitality business with shepherd huts. As well as being a popular haunt for visitors to Chatsworth House, they are licensed for civil ceremonies and provide the perfect spot for couples looking to say “I do” a little differently.

Forbes of Kingennie is another resort that’s been enhanced for year-round use. In addition to offering cosy Scottish staycations, the site specialises in hosting weddings in the most beautiful surroundings. They now also help guests to extend their stay with their unique accommodation options.

Could this be the start of your shepherd hut journey?

Our huts are designed and built with your specifications in mind and are completely customisable as a result. They are also constructed off-site and installed quickly to guarantee convenience for all.

Whether used as wedding night accommodation, or a luxurious space for the bridal party the morning of or night before the wedding, shepherd huts are fantastic additions with fantastic returns. You can find out more about the numbers behind the investment by using our ROI Calculator.
