Grand Pavilion Safari Chic interior edited

Safari Chic is a contemporary twist on the Out of Africa theme. More light and breezy than the 19th Century colonial ‘keeping up civilization’ vibe and a great theme for a cool party. There is lots of fun to be had accessorizing and planning exciting entertainment and interesting menus.

Safari Chic is available for our Maharaja pole tents and metal framed Pergolas, Pavilions and Grand Pavilions. Both for outdoor installations and indoor ballroom transformations.

Somewhat unusually for an elaborate Mehndi celebration, Sunitha and Srindhar’s reception at the St. Regis Monarch Bay was based on a restrained palate of ivory with bursts of color in the flowers. Raj Tents installed 9 x 20’ diameter Grand Pavilion tents in groupings of three around the central dance floor, so guests could mingle and sit either on Raj Tents’ lounge furniture or standard seating arrangements. One thing you can always count on at an Indian wedding is that the guests will bring lots and lots of color with them, and the wedding guests brought all to life with their finery. Thank you to Jeannie Savage of About Details Details Weddings and Events for pulling all together.


Great to see the Spring / Summer edition of Indian Weddings Magazine on the shelves! With Destination Weddings becoming more prominent, Raj Tents were interviewed in the first of a two part series on Destination Weddings. The first part, in this edition, deals with the concept side – how do you decide that a Destination Wedding is right for you? In the next issue, we will explore the planning side, with advice on how to make your Destination Wedding a success.

Wedding Planner Magazine asked Raj Tents to contribute to their feature on ” Creating a Venue from the Ground Up – Three tent rental companies share behind-the-scenes peeks at a top tented wedding”. We were glad to share details of a fabulous traditional Indian Punjabi Wedding at an estate home in California’s San Joaquin Valley from August 2014. Many thanks in particular to KSB Company and Light Up the Walls for making the wedding such a success. Visit Wedding Planner Magazine’s site to subscribe and/or download the current issue.

We are happy to be able to offer the Beach Chic range of Pergolas and Pavilions to our valued clients who have been asking for tents that are both elegant and laid back for poolside and beach entertaining.

‘Being based in Southern California was the main motivation, with so many marvelous properties and beaches calling out for luxury tents in a more casual theme’ says Dominic Mitchell, Raj Tents co-founder  ‘Of course our destination events were a big inspiration too as the collection invokes the elegant beach feel of the amazing resorts we work at’.

The Beach Chic collection is all about relaxed eclecticism with warm white layered into aqua tones. Seashell chandeliers give the natural texture of nature to offset the blue hues evocative of the ocean’s tranquility. To keep the feel cool and simple, the Blue Wave valance is appliqué in sea-spray green, sky blue and white with a matching interior and aqua toned exterior.

Many thanks to the fabulous Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica for allowing us to shoot the Beach Chic collection at their pool. Apart for being a fantastic hotel in a great location, the Casa Del Mar and her neighbor, Shutters on the Beach, share event planning and catering services giving a lot of flexibility to their corporate and weddings patrons whilst melding historic elegance, state of the art facilities and beach style.

The Beach Chic Pergola overlooking the Ocean was shot at the Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas where Raj Tents set up an extensive beach installation – watch out for some great pictures of the unique beach wedding coming up in one of the next posts.
