Tipi weddings really are something special and knowing Vicky & Nick, I knew it would be the most awesome day! I met these guys a few years ago, when I photographed Vicky’s sister’s wedding. With a magnificent tipi set up in the farmland at home, the wedding was going to be rustic style, unique and personal to them.
I met them a few weeks before for a pre- wedding shoot at their Warwickshire farm. It was a gorgeous sunny day! Vicky & Nick bought along their nephew and pony (I know, so fun!!) and we had a great afternoon. We wandered around their home grounds and just had a laugh! I get so excited when a wedding such as this one has been planned. I absolutely love turning up on the day to see their vision and dreams turn in to a beautiful reality. There really is nothing like walking into a wedding Tipi. They are so magnificent and look so beautiful when dressed for the wedding.
After a church ceremony in Claverdon, Warwickshire, guests made their way back to the farm where drinks were served in the beautiful home gardens. The beauty of an outdoor, home tipi wedding is that it is so chilled and relaxed. There was such a great atmosphere and I know how much it meant to Vicky and Nick to have their wedding at a place that means so much to them, surrounded by all their favourite people!
Vicky & Nick put tonnes of love and hard work into decorating the tipi and bringing their own touches into their day to make it so personal to them. The giant tipi’s have so much space and opportunity to transform them into anything within your own creativity and imagination. Vicky and Nick decorated their tipi with a rustic twist, with beautiful wild flowers, wood slices and hundreds of twinkling lights. It was an emotional day, especially when it came to speeches. So full of love, laughter and lots of tears.
The dance floor rocked and the live band had everyone dancing and having a blast. Tipi weddings have such a fab vibe and this one was no exception. A perk of having a home wedding? The party doesn’t have to stop!! I have no idea what time these guys partied on till but I’m sure it was long into the night (ok- probably morning!) It was an amazing wedding to be part of and very special to have photographed two wonderful weddings from one family.
