In May I spent the loveliest birthday week down in Cornwall with my man. We walked the coastline, dined at Outlaws, explored magical villages and breathtaking landscapes… and I fell in love with Cornwall. But oh, it is such a long way from my part of the world!!

Boho brides, whimsical couples and lovers of the outdoors will know and love outdoor events company PapaKåta, who’ve featured many times on the English Wedding Blog.

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely day so far. I have something very special to show you today… something I fell in love with a few years ago when I first began writing the English Wedding Blog. Wedding teepees were brand new, and I’ve always adored their rustic, eco style. PapaKåta is now the UK’s biggest supplier of gorgeous teepees and last year introduced us to Sperry Tents.

PapaKata wedding teepeeTrust me – once you’ve seen a PapaKata teepee or Sperry tent, you’ll never want to see a bog standard marquee again. Ever!

PapaKata_Teepees UK real weddingIf you want to celebrate in extraordinary style, look no further than PapaKåta’s teepees. The free-spirited teepees are glorious in summer and super cosy in winter.

Sperry Tents are huge in the US, always on the world’s top wedding blogs, and will be one of the hottest things in weddings for 2015 and beyond.

She purred…” said our PM this week, and I quite liked it. Oh, to purr in velvety tones with all the glamour of a Hollywood starlet – I’d love to speak that way! It’s how I imagine today’s super glamorous bride would sound: she has that timelessly elegant beauty originating from the Great Gatsby era and I know you’ll adore this shoot!

Our bride wears the most exciting of vintage styles: an Eliza Jane Howell designer wedding gown with sequins, sheer sleeves and a fabulous belt, all in the softest shades making a gently sophisticated statement. Her groom wears a luxurious navy suit with bow tie, creating a look both elegant and vintage which fits the style of the day.

Combining rich, midnight blues and natural textures with minimal design and a focus on comfort, the setting for the shoot is one of PapaKata’s gorgeous new Sperry tents – indeed today’s styled shoot is the brainchild of PapaKåta, The Wedding Affair and Dominic Wright Photography.

I’ve been a MASSIVE fan of PapaKåta since the beginning of the English Wedding Blog back in 2011. Wedding teepees were brand new, and we loved their rustic, eco style. PapaKåta is now the UK’s biggest supplier of teepees and back in February I heard they were bringing Sperry Tents – fabulous American styled tents – over to the UK. Sperry Tents are huge in the US, always on the world’s top wedding blogs, and I’m more excited than I can even begin to tell you to be sharing this shoot with you today.
