Today I am jetting you off to warm and sunny Mexico, away from the cold...
I am starting this Thursday with a stunning styled shoot full of amazing decoration in not just one but six Tipi’s!! The shoot took place on 10th September 2020 at Sywell Grange in Northamptonshire and was the brainchild of a group of hugely talented wedding suppliers. Covid has put plenty of restrictions on all of us, which is why Sarah Vivienne and her team decided to put on such a large scale shoot. They pooled all of their talents and created this epic shoot full of the most amazing decoration, beautiful flowers, delicious food, stunning table set ups, delightful cake and of course this gorgeous couple. If you have been thinking of holding a tipi wedding then this shoot should give you plenty of inspiration. It really is full of laid back magic and so much Boho charm.
The shoot started life as a tiny seed of an idea – a casual conversation between a few of the team about wanting to do a naked tipi inspiration shoot. Well, we (Teepees & Tents, Jenna Claire Stationery, Julia Dilworth Florals and me) were all over that idea. And that seedling idea grew. And it grew and grew and grew. And it kept growing until it was a six hat set-up needing a team of around 30 people to make it happen.
Usually, one or two people style and produce editorial shoots like this. But not this one. This shoot was a true team effort; with everyone contributing ideas and sharing the organisational workload. With a lack of weddings this year, it was just what we all needed – an outlet for our pent-up creativity.
We wanted to create something with the current trend for rustic dried flowers, with a naked tipi as none of us had done a shoot with a naked tipi before. The look and feel was luxurious but relaxed – something a stylish but laid-back couple would go for. And we loved the idea of it being outdoors – partly because the countryside setting at Sywell Grange has a lovely chilled out vibe and gorgeous views – but also because it felt very safe and easy to socially distance while working outside. Tipis are extra magical at night – so we incorporated lots of candles, lanterns and suspended lights.
