What an Incredible Venue
We had our wedding at The Salix Yurts and it was just the most incredible venue. Thank you so much to James, Lee and all the rest of the wonderful Louisiana's gang!Sent on 18/11/2019
They were extremely accommodating and helpful, even when we threw in some wildcards like "is it ok if we have archery?" (went down an absolute storm with all of the guests and thankfully nobody died).
Honestly just can't big these guys up enough, wonderful people who just couldn't do enough to ensure that we had the best day.

What an amazing wedding planning team! James and Lee supported us right through our planning and lead up to our wedding and nothing was too much trouble. Our wedding at the Salix Yurts couldn't have more like we had dreamt of and a big part of this was down to these guys! James your support on Friday getting the wedding venue sorted really was amazing and you went the extra mile to get / do what ever we needed! On Saturday, the day of our wedding, James made sure all my requests to turn on lights, put flowers on tables outside etc were done and I had compete trust I would arrive at our reception and he would have everything in check, I was so right, he was stood smiling with our arrival drinks and he and the bar team (Louisianna's Mobile Bars) continued to support us all day and night. Truly Amazing! Thank you xxxxSent on 18/11/2019
