Peak Tipi Wedding full of rustic charm
Outdoor weddings are my favourite type, I'm not gonna lie. A tipi wedding, a yurt wedding, a marquee wedding - sign me up. As you probably know I love the outdoors but of course the weather in the lovely little country of ours makes planning a wedding completely outdoors a bit of a risk. Enter the tent - these days there are some really beautiful tipi, marquee and yurt options and some fabulous companies that can provide them for you. The other thing I love about weddings in tents it that is often inspires wonderful creativity with regards to how the wedding is styled. It truly is a blank canvas for you to decorate and style as you wish.
This wedding was utterly perfect for Laura and Rich. Laura first got in touch with me while I was away camping in deepest, darkest Wales. I remember getting her email and knowing instantly that I wanted to photograph their wedding. They lived in Australia and were coming back home to England for a laid back, relaxed wedding day in a tipi in the grounds of Rich's house. There is so much about this wedding that I love - Laura and Rich themselves are just so lovely - down to earth, warm, friendly - I was made to feel so welcome. And not only by them, all their friends and family could not have been more inviting. When I turned up at the house the bride was getting ready in to find a girl I worked with in a pub at uni opening the door to me (she was the brides sister - complete coincidence!) I knew it was going to be a good day. The wedding really was as relaxed and laid back as they had wanted - no dramas, or stresses (bar the epic downpour the day before ahem) - the day was perfectly styled, the bride and groom looked completely gorgeous, the bridesmaid dresses are to die for - take a look for yourselves there is just so much to love here. A shout out to some of the fabulous suppliers involved - The gorgeous tipi was provided by Peak Tipi's and I'd highly recommend them if you are looking for something similar for your day. the beautiful make up by the lovely Make up by Jenni .
