Katie & Myles – A Tipi Wedding

A Tipi Wedding in North Cornwall

I’ve been really looking forward to sharing more of this awesome wedding after uploading a preview shot a few weeks ago; it really was an incredible day!

On the 10th June, Katie and Myles took their vows legally at Bude registry office in the morning, followed by an informal ceremony in the grounds of Katie’s parent’s home in North Tamerton in Cornwall.

The wedding styling matched the couple perfectly – A laid-back English country wedding, with a blend of wild flowers loosely tied with lavender, hessian and lace, combined with their love of snowboarding.

The couple hired a large  tipi style tent  from the Cornish Tent Company for a sit-down buffet following the ceremony. The benches in the tipi were dressed with  hessian and lace table runners, glassware and bunches of lavender.

Katie is a chef and baked home-made macaroons for the 72 guests as wedding favours, wrapping them in an organza sleeve to match the colour scheme.

The tipi was decorated with fairy lights and pictures of the couple were pegged onto cotton strings to look like bunting.

The couple designed their  table plan  under the headings of  French ski resorts  such as Roche de Mio and Bellecote. Their  wedding cake  was made to represent a  snow-covered mountain, with a couple of snowboards crossed together as cake toppers.

Katie wore a stunning  embroidered lace and chiffon wedding dress, her long hair was worn to the side and braided with a beautiful jewelled hair piece. She finished the look with beaded vintage looking jewellery and Rainbow Club heels.

Myles looked dapper in a dark blue suit (to match Katie’s four bridesmaids) and a bow tie with a matching brown waistcoat and shoes.

As their guests gathered eagerly in the slate garden waiting for Katie to arrive, she surprised them all by arriving at the outdoor ceremony riding her  white stallion,  his mane tied with ribbons, with her bridesmaids following closely behind.

The couple enjoyed drinks and canapés in the garden following the ceremony before moving inside the tipi for the sit-down buffet and speeches.

The evening entertainment was three piece band ‘Night Train’, comprising of keyboard/vocals, drums and saxophone; they certainly knew how to get the place rocking! Certainly one of the best live acts I have ever seen.

Here are just a few of my favourite images from their day…
