Today I am back with my regular feature ‘Advice from the Married Side,‘ real life wedding planning advice...
Happy Monday everyone and how are you all this fine Monday morning? Today is an exciting day for me as building work begins on our new extension. It’s been a long time coming but today is the day. The next few months are going to be pretty disruptive but hopefully it will all be worth it. Nik and I spent more time house shopping this weekend, trying to get to grips with the finer details of what needs to be ordered. More to come no doubt on my Instagram stories as the weeks progress! On with the week though and I am starting with this beautiful Tipi wedding inspired shoot. The shoot took on 24th July 2020 at Crossland Riverside, Box End, Bedford. It’s was put together by Louise Barcock from Big Green Space and her team of excellent wedding suppliers. Taking inspiration from nature around them, this shoot features wild flowers, reeds, wood, macrame, tassels and the stunning decoration inside the Tipi’s. So many wonderful ideas for your very own tipi wedding.
With a new venue to launch and a team of industry talent whose creativity had been stifled due to lock down, it was a wonderful opportunity to bring together some key players in the wedding world and to introduce a flock of new suppliers to the market.
The river location was the real inspiration. The fluidity of the reeds inspired the tassels running through not only the macrame but the cake and the detail on the dress. The tree lined fields inspired the country tweeds worn by the men and the relaxed outdoor boho feel with the tipi and outdoor grazing boards. The florals were inspired by what grows naturally on the riverbank and foliage was foraged to enhance the displays.
We wanted to not only create eye catching and inspirational photos for marketing of the venue but I also wanted to enable industry friends to come together to create, to express ourselves and to cement our relationships.
Te creative process was a breath of fresh air. To be able to plan, organise and be creative in a time of uncertainty and when our industry had been forced to holt, was so refreshing. The team were thrilled to be able to exercise their imaginations and we all left feeling revitalised and full of hope.
