Wedding venue business expands into corporate world

An East Midlands-based business best-known for its Tipi weddings is extending its offering into the corporate world.

Wonderland Venues – which operates four of its five wedding venues in the East Midlands – is rolling out its new corporate events.

The new services will be launched at a corporate open day at its Whatton House venue on Tuesday, 18 June, with the event featuring live music from Girls Who Mix, food and drinks, cocktail masterclasses, team-building activities and a wellness tipi.

Linzi Burnell, events director and co-founder at Wonderland Venues, said: “Since starting out in 2016, we have helped give hundreds of couples their dream wedding, and now we want to offer the same opportunity to the business community for their corporate and team events.

“Each of our venues are truly stunning, set in different locations but all with the backdrop of enchanting views and total privacy. Over the years, we have honed a blend of festival charm and luxurious vibes, meaning that we can provide a truly unique event experience for your team function.

“As an all-in-one venue, we eliminate the stress of coordinating multiple suppliers, meaning you have a streamlined solution that provides exceptional value and convenience – all while taking advantage of a beautiful setting.”

Each Wonderland Venues location has a wide range of catering partners to suit whatever needs the event has, along with a fully-serviced bar. They also offer i-fi and AV options for events that require a more formal approach, with capacity ranging from 50 to 1,000 people depending on the event’s needs.

Burrell said: “With great dance floors, chillout areas and fire pits – all lit under the ambience of fairy lights – we can make your corporate event one to truly remember. The open day at Whatton House is a fantastic opportunity to see one of our venues in all its glory and appreciate the versatility they can provide.”
