Oh, PapaKåta… but you’re beautiful!! This must have been one of the best-looking wedding events of the season: glorious tents and teepees, fabulous suppliers and gorgeous brides and grooms exploring just how amazing a wedding under canvas could look. English Wedding Blog sponsors PapaKåta held their spring open weekend in March and Helen Abraham photographed the event… So. Wanna see some beautiful things?!
You know what I love? With PapaKåta there’s no big song and dance about an ‘alternative wedding fair’ – they just put up their teepees and tents, invite their favourite suppliers (and their taste is super awesome!) and tell everyone to come see… I only wish I could have been there! If you missed it too, there are details of two autumn events towards the end of today’s feature… get those diaries ready!
The sun shone, cocktails flowed, cameras snapped and guests turned out in their hundreds! At this year’s PapaKåta Spring Open Weekend we welcomed over 700 visitors to see our beautiful Teepee and Sperry tents at Escrick Park Estate.
With the support of some of our favorite trusted suppliers, we gave brides, grooms, event planners and birthday boys and girls the opportunity to plan and visualize their own event, all whilst enjoying the warm and inviting surroundings of our beloved tents.
As well as providing us with an opportunity to showcase our tents, the Open Weekend allows us to meet clients face to face, answering any planning questions and helping them to get inspired and visualize their own events. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many excited happy faces and helping to plan dream events that will create memories that last a lifetime.
Here at PapaKåta we’re constantly innovating and expanding our trend led collections of furnishings in order to offer clients a variety of ways that they can create an event that’s unique to them and truly memorable for their guests. The Open Weekend saw some new additions to our portfolio reigning supreme, with the ethereal floating globe lantern grid, flower adorned floral crown, and rustic wooden star popular favorites with visitors over the weekend.
Firm favorites and hero pieces such as our stunning handcrafted circular oak bar and festoon light walkway were also on display, helping to give the event that added sparkle.
Filmore & Union were on hand to not only ensure tummies were satisfied, but also to answer questions and inspire those on the search for the perfect event menu.
Thanks to Choose Cake, sweet treats were in abundance, something that didn’t escape the attention of the cake loving Papa Peeps!
Florists Lucy MacNicoll Floral Design, Firenza Floral Design and bespoke stationer The Charming Press got creative juices flowing by inspiring guests with botanical details and helping them to plan and tick off some the finer details on their planning lists.
The weekend was captured by wedding and event photographer Helen Abraham Photography.
