The floral styling is superb for today’s wedding – say hi to beautiful Laura & gorgeous Kevan who married at High Billinghurst Farm last summer. They were blessed with gloriously hot weather for their celebrations in the Sussex countryside – and while tipis were set up nearby, the temperatures meant their dream of a woodland wedding was destined to come true.

We’re taking a fascinating behind the scenes look at the wedding today, with lovely Kim at Bespoke and Beyond Weddings & Events. Kim’s story begins on the Thursday morning with the arrival of three giant hats from Beautiful World Tents. I’ll hand over to Kim who can tell you all about her vision for this stunning celebration, and how the wedding came together beautifully, creating a truly magical woodland wedding for Laura & Kevan.


What a fantastic quote from today’s gorgeous bride Katie! I love it. Vintage, countryside and rustic weddings are definitely the biggest trend I’m seeing from all of your real weddings right now. But Matt and Katie went all out with their theme and style and created a really amazing tipi wedding day. “As country bumpkin as possible”? It’s how I’m living my life for the whole of 2013… so this is right up my street!

The styling and general decor all looks fantastic. Katie and Matt have made it look easy – and the wedding tents are lovely and welcoming, pretty and full of special touches which make their tipi wedding a very personal one.
