If you follow my work, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of outdoors weddings, so I was delighted when Rhiannon and James booked me for their chilled out tipi wedding in Worcestershire, especially after I’d been to visit the farm where they were having their reception. The combination of the beautiful farmhouse and garden, interesting backdrops provided by the farmyard and the lake set against a backdrop of rolling fields, was absolutely perfect.
After a ceremony just up the road at St Peter’s Church in Astley, the guests headed down the country lane to the farm, followed by Rhiannon and James in their vintage Beetle. Their two dogs made a star appearance, and even posed for a few pictures J
The tipi was beautifully styled, with wild flowers, fairy lights, and a vintage cup and saucer for each guest. The tables were named after local pubs and the meal was a huge ploughmans selection. Rather than a cake, they had a cheese tower which was decorated with a mouthwatering array of fruit.
Guests were able to spread out and enjoy the beautiful summer evening. It’s a good job there was plenty of room as the guys playing with a rugby ball and golf clubs featured heavily!
The day was rounded off with a brilliant set from the band Mansfield Avenue who really got the guests dancing.
Thank you so much to Rhiannon and Jamie for trusting me to capture their day, and for being so lovely to work with. I know they love their preview pictures, as they’ve already had a peek, but here they are for everyone else to enjoy.
If you’re having an outdoorsy wedding, whether it’s a tipi, yurt, marquee, barn or anything else, please get in touch as I’d love to find out more about your plans!
