Tipi weddings are becoming hugely popular due to the complete flexibility they offer. A tipi is a blank canvas, allowing you to put your own stamp on your wedding, and allows you to have a unique wedding day. Perhaps you are planning an outdoor wedding and are looking for somewhere unique to hold your wedding reception - a tipi could be just the thing. If you are looking for tipi wedding inspiration, you're in the right place!
I was excited to be involved in a styled shoot at Horstedpond Farm organised by Beneath The Canopy, who supply the most incredible bell tents for weddings and events. The theme of the shoot was a festival style wedding, complete with an incredible naked tipi from Love Tipi! The photos by Kirsty Mackenzie Photography are amazing, and will definitely give you all the tipi wedding inspiration you could hope for!
The wedding ceremony was set in the woodland and featured an incredible tassel backdrop from To Have and To Hire Weddings. How amazing would it be to say your vows in front of that, surrounded by woodland?! The mirror balls in the tree add a quirky touch and are something a bit different to the usual festoon lights. Bunting from Boho Temple added a touch of colour to the trees and the styling pieces from To Have and To Hire add the finishing touches. A celebrant-led wedding allows you to say your vows in magical places like this - speak to Kate and Kate Celebrants for more details.
Having one main tipi (in this case the naked tipi) and bell tents surrounding it means you can create a mini festival for your wedding, with you and your guests camping out to celebrate your big day - make a long weekend of it! The bell tents are so much more luxurious than your average camping tent, with sumptuous furnishings inside. The main tent could be where you have your wedding breakfast, with grazing boards from Grazing Social and beautiful floral decoration from Fern Cottage Floristry.
Food trucks are a common sight at festivals, and a wedding festival should be no different. The Tin Roof Kitchen provides amazing artisan pizzas and the The Gin Emporium is a mobile gin bar - no event is complete without a mobile gin bar!
Our bride for the day wore a number of different outfits (again, one of the perks of having a festival wedding!). The beautiful wedding dress was by The Pantiles Bride.
If you are having a non traditional wedding, you should definitely consider non traditional wedding favours! Luxury handmade lollies make a great wedding favour, and we can make them in a wide range of colours and flavours (gin and tonic flavour lollies, anyone?!) to suit your day. Perhaps add them to a dessert table, or use them as place cards for your wedding reception? For wedding favour inspiration, head over to our fun Sprinkle Lollies page or Edible Glitter Lollies page!
