The Giraffe Shed is a location chameleon. Come for the weekend, or just for a day, create your own mini festival wedding, or channel stripped-back industrial vibes. It’s a child-friendly, pet-friendly, disabled access haven with all the little details considered – from outdoor lighting to WiFi to a back up generator – to make sure your alternative wedding dream comes off without a hitch.
The majority of our customers book The Giraffe Shed for full weekend weddings. That means three days, Friday-Sunday, for you to make the venue yours, and enjoy it to the max!
We’ve also added micro-wedding packages to our menu, for those of you with busier schedules, more modest visions, or planning your wedding on a budget.
Classic Full Weekend!
You’ll get exclusive use of the full venue from Friday-Sunday. That includes all our venue spaces (more info on those here), two bars, and optional extras.
When it comes to the practicalities, tables and benches are provided too, and the toilet situation includes facilities in The Shed and The Shepherd’s Hut (find out more in our FAQs).
Catering and tableware isn’t provided in your hire fee, but we’ve got a whole list of amazing suppliers who’ll be more than happy to help with all your foodie needs. And of course, you can DIY every aspect of your wedding and bring it all with you too.
The Rough Schedule
Friday – planning, prepping, primping. You, your squad, and your suppliers will have full site access for set-up.
Saturday – your big day, exactly as you want it, down to the very last decoration.
Sunday – time to undo-it-yourself! Or if you can’t face the Sunday morning work, then Team Giraffe offer our own clean-up service.
* of course you don't have to stick to the above - the venue is yours for the weekend, so if you have multiple ceremonies or a cultural ceremony, the space can be used to fit your needs.
