We love alternative weddings, DIY celebrations, unique couples, festival brides, same-sex weddings and anyone else who wants to do something a little quirky for their wedding.

What they say

Exceeded all expectations

I used BigTopMania for a party last weekend and I have to say they exceeded all my expectations. Not only was their price highly competitive but they couldn't have done more in terms of extras provided. The set up was faultless and their staff were helpful and courteous. I can honestly say that I have never dealt with a company who have done more for me. If you are looking for a big top, or little top, these chaps are tip top!

Professional and Efficient

We cannot praise Pete and his excellent team highly enough; they put up such a beautiful tent for my 50th Circus Party, and were a joy to work with. Professional and efficient, they coped with some extremely challenging weather, and worked tirelessly to get everything perfect.  Our guests loved dancing the night away in such a beautiful place, and we have so many memories of all the fun and colour- a real triumph thanks to Bigtopmania.
