One of our absolute favourite weddings was Nollaig and Bobby’s tipi wedding at the gorgeous Carreglwyd in Anglesey. We love to reminisce about the whimsical lighting throughout the woodland, and can’t get over these amazing photographs. This was definitely one of those weddings where love was just all around!
From the moment we saw how blown away the couple were when seeing the tipis at their venue, we knew that Nollaig and Bobby would definitely have a wedding to remember. The tipis looked so incredible in the Welsh countryside of Carreglwyd, and really allowed for that rustic-luxe wedding theme which is so popular amongst brides right now. You should deffo get in touch for more inspo if you are stuck for themes - we have a whole host of ideas! Right from our very first meeting, we discussed all their ideas and details about how to personalise the wedding. We so wanted to create the most spectacular day for them, and to help celebrate such an important milestone in their lives in the best way possible.
Nollaig and Bobby had a set up of 2 giant tipis and a 6m catering tent, used as a complete working kitchen. We adored the way in which they worked the space, by having the tables and benches in long rows for the sit down meal, then transforming the space into a fab dancing area at night. Nollaig and Bobby achieved this by simply moving all tables outside creating quirky picnic areas, and this was made super quick and easy by the flat-pack nature of the furnishings.
The couple actually chose to be married in a boathouse on the lake at their venue, which was absolutely stunning. We were able to advise on the use of a matted walkway, which meant guests could walk to and from the tipis without the worry of ruining any expensive heels or brogues! Similarly, we also suggested that they reuse the chairs from the tipi for seating, so that family and friends could perch on them whilst gushing at the ‘I do’s’. This was such a unique way of getting married, and we bet that the photographs from such an emotional moment are more than amazing.
To make their wedding completely stand out, the couple incorporated their own individual finishing touches. This is the best way of ensuring that your wedding is 100% bespoke and personal to you. Nollaig and Bobby used swagged fairy lights throughout the tipis, and had the Edison lightbulb display hanging above the top table as a quirky feature. They also hung cute little hearts from various poles around the tipis, ensuring that absolutely everyone was surrounded by love. Another aspect we loved was the gorgeous presentation area for food, drinks and gifts, which was decorated with an abundance of candles, and so added an element of romantic elegance to the day.
Seeing just how unique each and every event can be, leaves us with masses of inspiration and new ideas to make future events even more spectacular. We are always truly honoured to be selected to create such beautiful memories, and only hope that more of you share your hopes and dreams with us so that we can help to make your day incredible.
Our very best wishes.
