Meet The Founders of Baylily Bell Tent & The Outside Bride…

Here at Baylily we like to get to know our brides, so its only fair that you get to know a little about the founders who are behind these rather awesome bell tents and the wedding community The Outside Bride.

You can absolutely read about Emily & Alan on the About Us page, but we thought its time you got to know them a bit better with some quick fire questions to get going…

As you can probably tell Emily likes her gin and Alan a good BBQ! Together with their three kids and passion for the great outdoors, exploring new challenges in life and work come as an adventure. The Outside Bride alongside their first business Baylily Bell Tents is a reflection of this life which they love so much and can now share with you.

If you want to meet Emily & Alan online then join our Outside Bride Facebook group, where they answer outdoor wedding questions live on their Ask and Expert slot every week, Wednesday evenings at 8pm!

I’m going to hand over to Alan now, who in his own words will share with you his thought about that all important question… Why do you do what you do?
