A magical teepee wedding in Cambridge

If Google didn’t tell me I had to start with some words of introduction to my wedding blog posts, I’d launch straight into today’s feature with the beautiful images from Victoria and David’s teepee wedding. There’s so much to show you, and you’ll LOVE this!

Cambridge teepee wedding by Lightworks Photography (1)There is always a certain charm and romance to a wedding in a teepee, especially when you include a stunning bride in a couture wedding dress and details as enchanting as those I’m about to share with you. And wait until you see the cutest flower girl in the world behind the wheel of a vintage wedding car… you’ll just melt!

I’m delighted to share this wedding with you today. If there was a wedding of the week award I’d be rushing to present it to everyone involved in today’s post – so congratulations and the biggest thank you to Victoria and David for sharing their story; and a huge thank you also to Cambridge wedding photographer Andrew from Lightworks Photography for the submission.

Everyone – enjoy! Claire xxx

Who proposed, and how?

David proposed at the top of a mountain overlooking the frozen Lac de Mont Cenis in France, where we met whilst working a ski season together 9 years ago!

Wedding venue:

In Harlton, near Cambridge, where Victoria’s parents live. The service was in the village church and then the reception was held in giant Teepees on Victoria’s Godparents’ farm in the village opposite the church.

Wedding photographer:

Andrew Hind (Lightworks Photography)

How would you describe your wedding style?

There were traditional elements, but we wanted a very relaxed atmosphere, with good food and live music!

We had a religious ceremony with readings from The Book of Ecclesiastes, Chapter 4 – King James Edition and Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare

The teepee wedding reception:

The whole day was perfect! Highlights included the ceremony in the beautiful church, Victoria’s Mother had done all the flowers in the church and the sunlight streamed through the windows.

The amazing Teepees in the field, the sumptuous food and of course the Spitfire display was very special, courtesy of Victoria’s uncle, John Romain from Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford Airfield.

So many people had contributed to making it such a memorable day. David’s father did all the bridal party flowers, Victoria’s Godmother made all the bridesmaid dresses and the delicious cake, family and friends had all pitched in to help.

Wedding venue styling and details:

The Teepees spoke for themselves, very little additional decoration was needed (Just some more gorgeous flowers!)

Wedding music and entertainment:

DC Brown Jazz Trio (For reception drinks) and The RoadRunners band (for dancing in the evening).

What did you wear?

Bride: Couture dress (designer and dressmaker – Elizabeth Andrews – Cambridge)
Groom: Bespoke tails (Oliver Littley – London www.oliverlittley.com)

Memorable wedding day moments:

There were special little moments all through the day. It would be difficult to mention all of them.

Wedding day advice:

  • Stay relaxed and smile!
  • Try to enjoy the ceremony, this important part goes so quickly!
  • Keep it simple.
