Hello Thursday and how are you? One more day and it will be the weekend!...
Happy Monday everyone and if you are in the UK then happy bank holiday weekend. I hope you are enjoying your bank holiday Monday and that the sun is shinning where you are. I am being rather boring and spending it in the office catching up on some work. Nik is off work today, so able to look after Dexter, so I’m making the most of the quiet and having a good catch up. So on with today’s Austrian wedding and it’s a great example of how intimate weddings really do rock. If you are currently streamlining your guest count due to the world wide pandemic, then do not fear, intimate weddings are a thing of beauty. I only had 35 guests at my wedding and I loved it. Yes it’s lovely to hold a big grand wedding with 100s of guests, however holding an intimate wedding really does make life easier. Less stress, less people to try and talk to, no invitation nightmares and so much cheaper! So if you are currently thinking abut your wedding guest list, coupled with your postponement worries, don’t! cutting your guest list down could be the best thing that ever happened to your wedding and this wedding is proof that it can look absolutely amazing. Big thanks to Wild Connections Photography for the lovely images.
Ashley and Ben were married on 3rd September 2019 at Tirol, Austria at the Maierl Alm. ‘Ben and I always talked about having a small destination wedding in the mountains. Once we were engaged, a trip overseas was fresh on our minds to visit his sister and brother in law who were living in England at the time. We’d never been to Europe and always wanted to visit! After browsing the typical top 50 mountainous destination wedding locations we decided to just go for it and shoot for an adventurous destination wedding abroad! We had exactly 20 in the group including ourselves. It took 14 months to plan, couldn’t have done it without our fabulous wedding planner, Nadia Wood at Amulet Events.’

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have had a good week so far? How amazing has the sunshine been? I have thoroughly enjoyed some time in the garden, Dexter has been in what he calls the swimming pool (it’s really a paddling pool) I’ve been enjoying our new garden furniture, life is good! This weekend I am hoping for much of the same, as well as some baking, dropping off presents for friends birthdays and no doubt a few walks! How about you? I would love to hear how your wedding planning is gong on? Are you managing to get much done? Or is everything on hold for a bit? On with today’s wedding and it’s the turn of Thomas and Ariana who were married on 14th September at The Pointe in San Diego. This whole wedding is absolutely stunning. The flowers are incredible, so full of Boho goodness and earthy tones. And I love how Thomas and Ariana incorporated some of their Native American culture by having a Pendleton blanket in their ceremony. The whole day is totally adorable, big thanks to Astray Photography for the images.
You may be wondering why I am discussing winter weddings in May? Well there will be many of you out there who have been planning a spring or summer wedding that due to Coronavirus you will now have either moved to next year or to the end of the year. Moving a wedding from summer to winter is like planning a brand new wedding. Different weather, different seasonal flowers, seasonal food, different lighting to think about. But don’t worry because a winter Tipi wedding can be even more magical than a summer one. Think cosy textures, twinkly fairy lights and roaring fires and you are half way towards just how magical your winter tipi wedding will be. Today I have invited Carla from Coastal tents onto the blog to tell us all about her top tips for planning the perfect winter tipi wedding.
‘Whether you’re planning a winter wedding from scratch or adapting your wedding plans because of postponement this blog post is for you.
There is something truly magical about cosying up inside a Tipi under hundreds of twinkling fairy lights and with the ethereal glow of candle light all around. Imagine all your loved ones gathered around the fireplace with a glass of bubbles, nibbling on sumptuous canapes.
Our authentic Tentipi event tents are designed to withstand the Scandinavian weather so they are well uited to a British winter. They are a beautiful and unique alternative to an indoor venue or a traditional frame marquee (and definitely cosier).
Having worked with a number of couples on their winter weddings we know what you need to do to make sure you and your guests have a wonderful time. Below are our top tips for the perfect winter Tipi wedding:’
It is our number one priority that you and your guests are warm and cosy. We provide event grade blow heaters with thermostat controls to keep you all at just the right temperature whatever the weather. We also make sure you have plenty of extra fuel so you can get the heaters going and heat the Tipis up before you all arrive.
Well hello Wednesday and hello what could be the hottest day of the year so far! Today homeschooling finishes at lunch time as we have the new super sized paddling pool pumped up and ready to use, along with our new garden furniture that Nik finished putting together last night. We were meant to be going on holiday on Monday so we are going to camp out in the garden and pretend it’s Ibiza! In the wonderful wold of weddings I have the gorgeous Lancashire wedding of Emma and Rowan to share with you. This DIY loving couple created a beautiful wedding, full of the most amazing decoration, all lovingly put together by hand. The attention to detail is superb, with the soft dusky blue tones mixing perfectly with the classic white and greenery decoration. The whole day is elegant and well thought out, yet relaxed and laid back at the same time. Anna Wood Photography was there to capture the day for us.
Emma and Rowan were married on 1st September at The Alma Inn, Laneshawbridge in Lancashire. ‘I (Emma) had stayed at this venue several times over the years whenever I worked away from home. From the very first visit I just fell in love with the place. I’d seen them set up many a wedding during my stays and I often wondered what it would be like to get married there. I took Rowan there a couple of times over the years and he loved the place too. We knew we didn’t want a church wedding and we knew we wanted it to be different from every other wedding we’d been to before. It was a no-brainer as soon as we sat down with the wedding co-ordinator, not only did The Alma have the look and feel of what we wanted and the whole place would be exclusively ours for the day but the price was an absolute steal too! We had approximately 50 day guests and 70 evening guests. A relatively small affair, just what we wanted. From engagement to wedding we had 18 months to plan and prepare. We got engaged in May and knew we wanted to get married the following year.’
