A guest article by Wild Tipi

Most of us will have experienced the joys of an English summer festival; whether it’s on a huge scale like Glastonbury or a low-key local affair, we can all relate to lying back on the warm grass with a cool pint of something by our sides as the tunes drift over the crowds, stirring memories or awakening moods within us. Or perhaps it’s more a case of trying to stay upright in the torrential rain and mud as our friends fall about laughing at our efforts… either way, the festival vibe is something dear to many of us and evokes powerful feelings of friendship, togetherness, of finding your tribe and one heck of a party.

Join me this morning for some especially beautiful wedding inspiration. This is right up my street – natural styling, eco-conscious and gorgeous ideas for a boho chic wedding celebration in one of the finest locations in the UK. We’re heading to Hendra Cottage in Penwith, St Just, Cornwall, with a super talented group of wedding suppliers whose vision comes to life in the most wonderful way. Words are by Wild Tipi weddings; images by Verity Westcott Photography. 

The inspiration behind this shoot was to capture the rugged beauty of Cornwall’s north coast. Wild Tipi have just partnered with Hendra Cottage, Wedding and Events Venue – St Just in Penwith and we wanted to celebrate this with a wild Cornish coastal shoot. We hope to inspire brides and grooms with our use of nature; our ethos at Wild Tipi is to create stunning, individual weddings immersed in nature. Our tipis themselves are inspired by nature’s tree canopies and all of them are made in the UK from sustainable wood. We always endeavour to work with local suppliers here in Cornwall who share our ethos.

“We wanted to create something truly romantic and wild with a summery festival feel. Wild flowers were foraged locally, our table set up was an eclectic mix of vintage finds that we collectively pieced together from our own belongings – everything evolved really organically as we didn’t want anything too “done”.
