What does the word ‘wedding’ bring to mind for you? A white dress, a country house, a fancy sit down meal? When I first started in the wedding industry that’s what it meant to me as well. But now I hear the word wedding and I know the only constants are love, joy and celebration. Throwing personality into that mix is the secret recipe for an amazing wedding – remembering of course that not all weddings have a bride or a dress; not all weddings are formal – and the best ones, if I’m honest, are unexpected and characterful.
There is no one single thing more capable of sprinkling magic on a wedding than the hire of a tipi. Tipis have a special atmosphere about them and at the same time represent a blank canvas for any couple to imprint their own style. They’re perfect as a backdrop for any festival, country style or boho wedding theme that might clash with the interiors of regular buildings.
I’m completely in denial of the blustery Monday outside my window and 100% smitten with today’s STUNNING festival wedding on the blog. I do love to begin a week with a wedding to knock your socks off, and I think we’ve really nailed it today with our gorgeous couple Charlotte & Will. Their day combines rustic styling touches with elegant looks for the bride and groom – their tipi reception is absolutely lovely; the top table with their children is a joy (I love this idea!) – and the florals in white with oodles of greenery are just exquisite. We’ve lots of love for English Wedding member Mamad at Twig & Vine Photography who has captured their day beautifully. Have a lovely Monday everyone!
If I could feature a non-traditional wedding like this every single day, I would! The joyful air of celebration, the colour, the smiles, the fun from the very beginning until the very last sparkler twinkles out… and the cutest pooches on the planet! It’s all here. It’s wedding blog heaven, right here, today, and it’s all for you! Gorgeous bride and groom Alicia and Dan married last summer and their festival wedding is EPIC. The photos speak for themselves – but keep scrolling to find out all about their day including some brilliant Fieldgood Bar wedding suppliers for you to jot down.
Hey gorgeous! Are you feeling refreshed after the sunny weekend? I have some treats in store for you this week… and we’re starting today with a beautiful reminder that things WILL go back to normal and we WILL have parties and hugs and proper weddings again. I’m desperately hoping it’s soon – because this kind of loveliness is too special to miss. Lexi and Chris’s wedding had everything: an outdoor ceremony under an ancient tree with Chris’s military kit giving the occasion a certain gravitas… and Lexi is just STUNNING! They celebrated with a tipi reception and festival / fete inspired party afterwards, and the dancing went on until the early hours. Memories, hey? For now, let’s celebrate with this gorgeous pair.
