The Pearl Tent Company

Made in the UK from the finest white canvas, this juxtaposition of Eastern style and Western practicality is the essence of Pearl Tents success – making them the choice of the top wedding planners.

These unique wedding marquees are as stunning inside as they are out. The dramatic pyramid top creates a luxurious vaulted ceiling providing the ultimate light and airy wedding venue.

Set in drop dead gorgeous country side in West Dorset, near the World Heritage site of the Jurassic coast, and the beaches at West Bay and Lyme Regis, this is a hidden gem like no other. With 360 degree jaw-dropping views, and no neighbours it is a must for a weekend wedding full of chilling, partying and fun.

Taking over Axnoller means having the most extraordinary estate, with ancient buildings converted to house cool contemporary interiors, as yours. With a small retinue of handpicked staff (only there when you need them) and 2 planners who know just how to throw a fabulous party, you cannot be in better hands. They can recommend traditional marquees or something a little more alternative – the choice is yours!

Spring Wedding Inspiration at Axnoller, Dorset


Images by Peppermint Love Photography.

When Caroline, hair & makeup artist behind Amazing Face, sent in these images by Peppermint Love Photography it was like breathing in the fresh Spring air… I adore the colour palette of subtle yellows, pretty pinks and fresh whites! I’m also a sucker for a tulip or two.

This styled shoot showcases the new barn at premier Dorset wedding venue, Axnoller.

Come and take a little peek!

Notes from Axnoller


For the new barn at Axnoller, we created a sumptuous high-end look, contrasting beautifully with the light farm-industrial look of the building, and in-keeping with the luxurious style of the rest of the venue.

We paired classic neutrals, blush and peach with flower-heavy designs, professional lighting and hundreds of candles! In a big space, good lighting is essential for creating atmosphere and really brings the larger floral arrangements to life.

A Classic Affair at Axnoller


Images by Courtenay Photographic.

It’s so lovely to be kicking off the New Year with a love story at one of our newest venue additions – Axnoller.

This is the story of Rebecca & Bobby and their classic affair of a wedding weekend. Think luxurious and romantic surroundings, spectacular décor in the softest of blush pinks, coastal influenced feasts, boys in tuxedos and the most perfect Manolo Blahnik shoes ever.

Yes, there’s all of the above in this treasure of a real wedding feature, but what I love most about this story is that Rebecca loved her wedding venue so much that she has made it her career. With a background in London Event Management, Rebecca left her job and now works closely with Alo Brake, the owner and founder of Axnoller creating beautiful weddings for other Brides-to-be. Pretty special don’t you think…?

Over to the newlywed herself…

Notes from the Bride
