As an untraditional wedding photographer, I love nothing more than a wedding that is a little bit different. With so many options for couples planning their wedding, there has never been a better time to plan an original wedding that reflects who you are and what you love. Outdoor weddings are becoming more popular with couples and provide the perfect atmosphere for a relaxed, festival vibe to your wedding day.
Kelly & Levi planned the perfect day for them and their guests. I don’t know anyone else that parties like these two (i’m quite jealous!). Avid festival goers, they are always out and about, attending gigs and just having a great old time. I have known them for a good few years now and I knew their wedding would be something special. I was so excited to be asked to photograph their wedding- and boy was it a brilliant day! I knew an outdoor wedding would be right up their street and allow them to plan a fantastic day that reflected their personalities.
After their wedding ceremony in the beautiful Dovecote Barn, formalities were out the window! Outdoor weddings can be planned with many types of party venue structure. Tipi’s are amazing places for a party. They look stunning and bring everyone together, creating an atmosphere unlike any other type of wedding. This Oxfordshire wedding venue has the best of both worlds- a beautiful grade II listed barn for your wedding ceremony and then a spectacular giant tipi set in gorgeous gardens.
There was a brilliant party atmosphere throughout the whole day. Guests relaxed, drinks flowed and the music and dancing began before dessert was served. I stayed well into the dancing and as I left, guests were eating cones of chips and sitting on straw bales next to the fire pits. A perfect end to an amazing day!
What about the weather? The great British weather is unpredictable, I will give you that. It rained (poured down at one point!) but no one cared! With such a huge tipi, the only dashing outside was for the loo (or dancing in the rain to cool off!). Obviously we can’t plan the weather, but we can plan suitable footwear and umbrellas incase it rains!
