A NEW Cumbrian entrepreneur has made it her mission to help make weddings and events in the county more special, drawing on her own experience as a bride-to-be.

Lauren Moody, who runs the brand new Penrith-based Bohemia Bell Tents, has launched herself into the business world after realising there was a gap in the market when seeking to realise her own dream wedding.

Lauren has a background in wedding and events management, and when it came to planning her own wedding, which is still to take place at Eden Wedding Barn in Kirby Stephen, she had all the experience necessary to put together the perfect event.

The Cumbrian entrepreneur delights in all things bohemian, and so was very much set on bringing a bohemian flavour to the design of her own big day.

She had envisioned a cosy bohemian-style bell tent as the perfect location for her wedding guests to enjoy a chilled moment amid the celebrations.

But when Lauren set out to search for a Cumbrian supplier of bell tents, she found there was nothing out there that fit the bill.

Realising that this was the perfect opportunity to combine her professional experience of wedding planning with her love of the bohemian style, Lauren set about building what has now become her brand new business - Bohemia Bell Tents.

Lauren is passionate about helping those faced with the sometimes-daunting task of organising a wedding ensure their big day is perfect.

With "thousands of couples postponing their wedding day this year" as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Lauren is keen to make sure Bohemia Bell Tents can help make Cumbrian couples' wedding days a special affair, particularly in light of the complications and disruption caused by the ongoing pandemic.

Bohemia Bell Tents was set up with weddings in mind, though Lauren is also eager to cater to all sorts of events and gatherings, whether that be "garden get togethers, birthdays, hen parties, baby showers, wedding chill outs, festival style glamping and everything in between."

Lauren's new venture could also cater to those on the increasingly popular "staycation" - "with the staycation becoming ever more popular in this 'new normal', the desire to create something special within the safety of our own homes is more important than ever."

Bohemia Bell Tents will deliver, put up, take down and collect the tent, which can be hired for an afternoon, evening or overnight.
