You’ve been dreaming of this special day for a long time and are ready to make it a reality. You are looking for a beautiful space to say I do, share a meal, and then dance the night away. You imagine something outdoors, surrounded by friends and family, gathered to help you celebrate the moment.

At Black & White Event Rentals, they know all about that dream and all about the tents that will make it a reality for you. 

The 2022 wedding and outdoor event season came and went with a blur of activity, and 2023 is expected to be even busier. With that in mind, now is the time to plan. Book your tent before January 2023 and make sure your special day goes as smoothly as possible—rain or shine—no matter the weather.

For the past 30 years the Black & White team, led by owner Dave Willie, has been setting the stage for outdoor weddings in Victoria and the rest of Vancouver Island & the Gulf Islands. With so many years of experience, the B&W team knows what it takes to make your vision come to life.

Their specialty is providing clients with fabulous tents and over the years they have set them up in some exciting and even challenging locations, from backyard gardens, dramatic cliffsides, and windswept beaches, to the grounds of a castle, and atop a floating barge.

Here on Vancouver Island, we all know the weather can be unpredictable at any time of year, but a tent can provide you with peace of mind… as well as a handy place to hang strings of twinkle lights and a chandelier or two! You and your guests can see the moon & stars from under the clear top panels of an Aztec Frame tent, gather in a dazzling white Marquee, or celebrate beneath the sculpted peaks of the popular Tidewater Sail Cloth tents.

New to Black & White’s Tidewater collection is a 4,532-sq-ft beauty, designed to enhance daytime events with a warm natural light, and positively glow in the evening. These graceful tents are 100% waterproof and built to handle whatever Mother Nature sends their way. Come rain or come shine, Black & White Events Rentals will have you, your wedding guests—and your dreams—covered!

“We have one goal and that is to ensure you have the outdoor wedding of your dreams,” says owner Dave Willie, “and to make your special day as stress-free as possible!” That is made possible by a team that has many years of experience setting up wedding and other outdoor venues across Vancouver Island. 

Along with gorgeous tents, Black & White can provide tables (including solid wood Harvest tables) and chairs (from ultra-modern Ghost chairs to classic Chivaris, and Crossback Vineyard styles), as well as heaters and handwashing stations, dance floors and chandeliers.

On the uber practical side of event planning, Black & White’s newly acquired Upscale WC became an instant hit in 2022. And demand for these Canadian-manufactured portable restroom trailers continues to grow. Dave notes, “we were very excited to provide this often-overlooked aspect of outdoor events.” The Black & White restrooms are equipped with two separate suites (individually heated and airconditioned), flush toilets, sinks, mirrors, and plenty of space to move comfortably in.

Add a few special touches such as scented hand soap, plush towels and perhaps a vase of flowers, and your guests will feel even more cared for and at ease.
