Becci & Tim opted for a festival-inspired tipi wedding full of fun, laughter and smiles
This happy couple celebrated their gorgeous Summer wedding day in a fabulous tipi at the bride's family home. With lots of lovely DIY details and a rustic glamour wedding theme, Becci & Tim's wedding day was simply beautiful. Let's have a nosey…
OUR VENUE WAS VERY PERSONAL AND UNIQUE TO US
“We held our reception at Becci’s familly home. There was never going to be another choice. It is a beautiful house with a garden big enough to have the tipis and host the guests. It also made everything very personal and unique to us.
The style of our wedding was a very relaxed, fun, tipi wedding with its own bar tent, live music hay bale seating and fire pits. The colour scheme was navy, pink, charcoal and champagne. We made a lot of things including all the lazy suzans that made the dinning experience super easy. The centrepieces, the bar made of wooden pallets, the meat boards to fit the lazy suzans, the cocktails, the table favours and the order of service.”
MY DRESS HAD A BEAUTIFUL, LONG TRAIN WITH A SWEETHEART NECKLINE
“My wedding dress (bought from The Dress Place Nottingham) was a beautiful, long train, sweetheart neckline, lace, corset dress in champagne / rose gold with a heart cut out of the brides mothers wedding dress, which was sewn inside. Accompanied with Charlotte Mills shoes, appropriately named Becky which had rose gold heels and a silver six pence in the shoe.
The bridesmaids were wearing dresses from Coast – navy laced dresses with jazzy blush pink heels. The groom and groomsmen were all wearing navy Ted Baker suits with paisley pink ties and brown shoes. The groom also had two silver six pence cufflinks from 1925, which was the year his Grandad was born who sadly died when the groom was a teenager.”
THE FOOD WAS HEART AND TASTY!
“From the moment of walking out of the church everyone was given a small bottle of prosecco or a beer, setting the tone. Back at the house the cocktails were the first to go which were designed and pre-batched by the groom, but there was plenty of prosecco, beers and wine to go around. For the toast we had A. Bergere Blanc de blanc, which we had chosen when tasting our way through champagne avenue in Epernay.
The food was made by the Moleface Pub Group. The canapés were hearty and tasty, the meat and fish were perfectly cooked and the salads were fresh. The food kept on coming and no one was left feeling hungry.”
CHERISH EVERY MOMENT OF YOUR WEDDING DAY
“We had live music from the Simon Faulkner band who were brilliant live. They were happy to learn our first dance; ‘Blues Brothers – Everybody needs somebody’. They kept the dance floor buzzing and everyone had a great time.
We had the ‘Old School Booth‘ as our photo booth. Ben was great at making people feel welcome, very patient and has supplied everyone with some great memories.
The day goes very quickly, so make it personal and cherish every moment.”
