Who are we – Sherwood Glade Owners

I thought I best introduce who we are and how we came to owning Sherwood Glade. So we are Joanne and Mark Harrison and we love weddings and love working together and Sherwood Glade is another part of what we like to call the “Harrison Empire”. We were on the hunt for a wedding venue to buy and came across this fab tipi for sale and as we love the relaxed nature of a tipi wedding it made everything slot in to place.


Joanne grew up in the East Midlands and has ran her established wedding business since 2016. Tangled Events are a styling, planning and wedding consultancy company working with couples, suppliers and venues nationwide. She absolutely loves working with clients from initial contact right through to bringing the day to life. She loves a good list, spreadsheet or document and thinks organisation is the key to life. When she’s not working a wedding in the UK she is also a registered travel agent specialising in weddings and honeymoons abroad so its safe to say she lives, eats and breathes all things weddings. In her spare time Joanne loves a good reality series to binge watch and is also a huge Disney and Musicals fan so she can often be found singing and dancing away whilst working.




Joanne is on hand to any couple wishing to get married with us at Sherwood Glade and will help get your ideas rolling and plans in to place.


The other part of the operation is Mark and he has spent over 25 years owning, managing and running bars, clubs and restaurants. He deals with the more manual side of keeping the business running including overseeing the tipi builds and ensuring the land is kept up to our high standards. He will normally be found on wedding days ensuring the bar and drinks run smoothly and also ensuring vendors and suppliers have everything you need.


So there is a little introduction to us and you can feel confident that we have the knowledge and expertise to make your wedding spectacular.
