Tipi Wedding Photography – Bridie and Alex

As a busy Birmingham wedding photographer I always love shooting tipi wedding photography and I always love working with couples like Bridie and Alex.

Let’s start at the beginning of Bridie and Alex’s day.  We arrived early so we could get some images of Bridie and her bridal party getting ready at home.  Everybody was in good spirits.  We also caught up with Alex and his groom’s party (who were having a cheeky pint) at The Talbot at Knightwick.

Bridie looked beautiful in her dress bought at ‘A Stitch in Time’ with bouquet (and all the other flowers at the wedding) provided by Rosara Flowers.  Bridie’s smile was infectious and really set the tone for a fun day!

The ceremony was held at the church of The Sacred Heart and St Catherine of Alexandria in Droitwich Spa. This fine Grade II listed building contains the most stunning mosaics and sculptures.  Entering the church the site of them just takes your breath away. But don’t take my word for it take a look at my images.    It made the most beautiful backdrop when capturing Bridie and Alex’s wedding ceremony.

After the ceremony there was a lovey confetti moment and the chance to take some photographs.

Now shooting wedding photography at The Talbot at Knightwick was a pleasure.  This 14thcentury traditional coaching in is a must for foodies looking for a warm welcome.  Set in the pretty village of Knightwick The Talbot, with its countryside location within the Malvern Hills District, is a popular location for campers so where better to have a Tipi wedding.  The Tipi looked amazing all set up and ready for Bridie, Alex and their guests. Take a look, it’s the epitome of laidback rustic charm.

On arrival Bridie, Alex and their guests all enjoyed a drinks and canapes reception outside. With the sun shining, children playing and everybody mingling it was the perfect moment to whisk Bridie and Alex away for some quick romantic portraits shots around the grounds of The Talbot.

Everybody was then seated in the Tipi for the wedding reception which started with some very well received speeches before food was served.  The Talbot prides itself on good food sourced locally so Bridie, Alex and their guests were all well fed and watered.  I then took my chance to get a few portrait shots of Bridie and Alex making good use of the early evening sunshine.

The evening’s entertainment started with a gorgeous sparkler procession followed by a romantic first dance. It wasn’t long before Bridie and Alex were joined on the dancefloor by family and friends and it was the image of them all cutting shapes on the dancefloor that seemed my que to take my leave. Before getting to my car I took one last shot of the Tipi all lit up with Bridie, Alex and their loved ones all partying inside and it felt like a fitting image to close the story of their amazing wedding day.

A gorgeously stylish, fun and laidback wedding for this lovely pair.  Congratulations to Bridie and Alex for getting married and allowing me to capture it.  I hope my images will enable you to relive it again and again for many years to come.

Tipi Wedding Photographer – The best of!

Tipi Wedding Photographer

I am very fortunate to be able to capture tipi weddings often and the couples they attract are so relaxed and creative. One of the main reasons I love them so much!

When I say creative, I mean you never know how the decor is going to look from one wedding to the next. I’ve seen festival themed tipi weddings, pastel colours, skulls as table centrepieces, yurts for your guests to sleep over in, rain and my couples not caring, bumper cars, you name it, i’ve seen it at a tipi wedding.

Just having that freedom for you to create the perfect day, that suits your personalities completely, is something amazing in itself.

Elite Tents are often the tipi company I get to work alongside regularly and I can’t fault their passion in what they deliver.

I know from the beginning it might seem a lot to organise but that is what we are there for and I can help you with recommendations or advice every step of the way.

I have put together some of my favourite pictures from a few of the tipi weddings I have captured, just to give you some inspiration for your day. Really hope you like them….

Beautiful Tipi Wedding with Elite Tents – Chelsea and Jim

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

We hit it off from the day we met. So much so, Chelsea and I would meet up for ‘wedding chat’ dates that would be lunch dates, with a little bit of wedding talk at the end.

For such a long time I was waiting for this day to come around. To see it all come together. I’d never been to a wedding with bumper cars there for a start and I knew there were so many details to look forward to!

When the day finally arrived, we thought it wasn’t going to stop raining. They were having a Tipi wedding supplied by Elite Tents and rain wasn’t a welcome guest! It didn’t put anyone off though, in fact, once you were in the Tipi, you didn’t really notice what was going on outside.

Eventually the rain did stop, everyone went outside and the evening do began on the bumper cars! Quite an entertaining thing to watch when everyone had been on the table wine!

I really hope you enjoy the pictures and witnessing that even if it does rain on your Tipi wedding, you’ll be having too much fun to even care!

Rhianna and Michael’s Tipi Wedding – Newlands Bishop Farm Wedding

Tipi wedding
Rhianna and Mike are two of the nicest, most genuine people I have had the pleasure of meeting. Once they started telling me about their plans, I could see it was them!
They picked this wonderful venue called Newlands Bishop Farm. This venue is a working farm but holds weddings on weekends. To help at these weddings, they employ adults with learning disabilities, mental health problems and brain injuries. All the income generated from weddings goes directly to the development of Newlands Bishop Farm. It’s a wonderful place!
The atmosphere on the day was amazing. I hope you can see by the pictures how happy and relaxed everyone was.

Tipi Wedding in Wales – Nathan & Laura

When Nathan emailed me with the brief description of his up coming wedding in Wales I knew I had to shoot it! It was everything I loved about weddings, being held in a Tipi and was going to be in Wales where I am from!  The bride and groom had planned a wedding day that perfectly reflected their personalities and I couldn’t wait to shoot it.

The other nice thing about Nathan and Laura was wedding photography was very important to them. They didn’t have budget in mind, they just wanted a wedding photographer that suited them, their style and someone they got on with. As you can imagine I was very flattered when they picked me.

Tipi wedding in WalesWhen we arrived at Penybanc Farm our jaws dropped, it was stunning. Everything was in one place. The accommodation, the ceremony, the reception, EVERYTHING! Not only that, Nathan, Laura and their guests were making a weekend of it, they were getting married on the Saturday having the reception on Saturday night and then on Sunday they were having a BBQ to thank everyone who attended.

When we saw Laura she was so calm, you wouldn’t think it was her wedding day, her wedding guests in the room were eating sushi and we couldn’t wait for the ceremony to start. First, I had to help stick on her amazing lashes!!

I hope the pictures speak for themselves as it was a truly amazing day. Thank you both so much for asking me to capture it for you.
