I just don’t know where to begin… the fabulous details, tipis stuffed with flowers and lanterns and soft, warm lighting? Or maybe the charming outdoor ceremony and nervous excitement shining from today’s couple’s eyes… There’s just so much romance and rustic charm in today’s tipi wedding I’m dying to show you!

Mark and Chris planned their wedding in just 6 months, and saved money by recruiting friends and family to help out: “Where you can make things yourself or find someone to do it for you, do… it adds a real personal touch and it’s half the price.” This meant they could afford a fabulous venue, wedding planner and photographer… and I’m so thrilled they did!


I’ve always been an advocate of finding wedding suppliers you ‘click’ with. Choose a photographer who understands you both; find a venue you’re comfortable in, and hire a stationer bursting with enthusiasm for your wedding style and theme. Now, wedding suppliers come in all shapes and sizes, and today I’ve found you one with wheels and wipers. She’s adorable – full of character and class, a lifetime of adventures behind her, and if you meet her I have a feeling you’ll fall head over heels in love with her! Say hello to Dolly the vintage wedding campervan!

Amy and Adrian were married in May and chose dusky pinks and baby’s breath to theme their beautiful vintage-inspired wedding day. The couple look amazing and their wedding is quintessentially English in style. Shottle Hall is a fabulous venue – do check it out (www.shottlehall.co.uk) and also take time to admire the stunning wedding cake by Yummy Little Cakes: it’s even got little lacy bits on… beautiful! Thank you Natalie for submitting the wedding as well!
