Behind The Brand
What was the spark for Sperry Tents? Where did your story begin?
It was love at first sight! We searched the globe for a new style of structure that resembled ‘Elegance & Romance’. Our brides were desperate to get out of a traditional marquee for a white wedding. The Sperry Tent is a luxury tent crafted by New England sail makers, a family owned business that believes in fostering the effortless elegance that comes from handcrafted & breathable champagne canopies, natural timber, rigorous attention to detail and small-batch manufacturing. We flew to New York, hired a car and drove the ocean road to a tiny sea side town called Marion and met the Sperry family. They were like long lost cousins with the same values in business and living a totally adventurous, humble best life. That was it, we purchased our first tent then and there.
What styles and aesthetics are you loving right now?
We moved to Byron Bay for its crystal water, white sandy beaches and stunning blue skies. As such, we love to create and inspire a coastal elegance or barefoot luxury. Our tents compliment the surrounds whether they be absolute beachfront or amongst the green rolling hills of the hinterland. Our furniture range consists of natural wooden & white pieces styled with silver or gold accents. The stitching on Sperry canvas is ornate which we highlight with ambient soft lighting. Our incredibly creative Byron Bay florists are always coming up with new floral installations that we are able to suspended in the canopy or wrap around the poles from floor to ceiling. Options are endless.
What are some of your most popular pieces?
Our most popular tent is our 14x26m Sperry Tent. It creates a majestic & memorable experience for the guests. For our larger 300-400+ weddings our couples choose from our Grand Sperry Tent range which are double poled through the centre and stunningly sophisticated. We are able to link tents, create a walkway or an impressive entrance with our Sperry Archways that have a classic look and grand aesthetic.
