Charlotte and Daniel’s Homemade Tipi Wedding in York by All You Need is Love Photography 

Today we are heading back to last October for this lovely Autumnal wedding sent in by the wonderful Becki from All You Need is Love Photography. Charlotte and Daniel wanted their wedding to be about the marriage not about a huge fancy affair, so they hired a tipi and set about creating as much of the wedding themselves. They hired Fish and Chip and Pizza vans for their food and got their friends and family to help out as much as they could. This created a laid back fun filled Autumnal wedding with a colour palette of seasonal plum.

Our wedding day was a happy blur, filled with food, music and dancing. It was also unexpectedly chilly!

Charlotte and Daniel were married on 27th October 2018 at All Saints Church, Cawood, with the reception at Escrick Park Estate in York. ‘Charlotte’s grandad was a priest – All Saints Church was his main parish and there is a plaque in memory of him inside the church. We had 70 guests. ‘We got engaged in February 2016 with the intention that we could slowly and calmly organise everything over 2 ½ years. However, we took things a little too calmly and had to properly start organising everything around 6 months before the wedding!’

Stephanie and Alex  were married on 2nd June 2018 at Ayia Paraskevi church in Germasoyia, with the reception at the garden next to it and the party at Dafermou winery in Lefkara village in Cyprus. ‘It is a cute church with a very nice garden next to it for the reception, which would make it very convenient for our guests. As for the party, the winery is a place we’ve fallen in love with, since it has an amazing view, it’s very atmospheric and romantic and matched completely with the theme that we were planning to have. We had around 300 guests and it took 1 year to plan.’

New Zealand Clifftop Sunset Wedding Inspiration

Today’s styled shoot is a real stunner, in fact you would be forgiven for thinking it’s an actual wedding as it’s so life like and set in the most breathtaking location. The shoot took place at The Farm Cottage Raglan in New Zealand in January of this year and features a real life couple. The outdoor ceremony and reception area set on the cliff tops overlooking the ocean, coupled with the beautiful greenery, festoon lighting and beautiful rustic decor, this shoot is totally breathtaking. Not only does it feature a real couple, there are also real guests too! With an array of delicious pizza to choose from against the sunset backdrop, I just adore the real nature of this shoot, the perfect inspiration for any Boho bride looking for an outdoor celebration.

Real-life lovebirds Tahlia & Ben set the scene in this Tuscan Italian styled shoot set on the seaside clifftop at Raglans newest wedding venue the “Farmhouse Cottage Raglan”. Shot by the talented Official Photographers this sunset shoot is one that our Brides will die for!

Sarah and William’s ‘English Country Garden’ Wedding at Home by Joe Mallen Photography

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? Was it sunny where you are? We managed to grab a bit of sunshine, which was lovely, trying to make the most of any excuse to go outside at the moment, as I’m sure Autumn will be knocking on our door very soon! I am starting the week with this lovely English country wedding that took place at the brides parents’ back garden, making it super personal and even more idyllic. They wanted a rustic theme and with this they really went to town with the decor, from the beautiful blooms to the wicker baskets and super pretty signage. I just love the Tipi reception, the 4 tipis together look magnificent in the garden setting, so summery and quintessentially English! Sarah and William have created a wonderful looking day and really looked after their guests with an abundance of food and drinks. Joe Mallen Photography was there to capture the day for us.

A day filled with love, laughter, great food, live music and plenty of booze! Our wedding ceremony was traditional and took place in the local village church, celebrations took place in the Bride’s parents garden in a giant tipi with an English country garden/rustic theme!

Sarah and William were married on 25th May 2019 at All Saints’ Church, Tilford with the reception in Sarah’s parents’ garden in Tilford. Sarah has always dreamed of a wedding in the garden and both her parents built their own house so it was extra special to have it there. Sarah’s parents are also unwell with cancer, mother of bride terminally ill and it was therefore extra special that we were able to have it at home. We had 160 guests in the day, 180 in total in the evening, it took 17 months approx to plan.
