First of all, the photos of Laura and James in the back of a vintage chevy truck are straight out of Hollywood. There are some serious Notebook vibes going on at today’s glorious wedding. But that’s not the only thing you’re going to love about this beautiful DIY extravaganza. The bride and groom travelled far and wide to source the food truck for their wedding trying delicacies all over the UK, even at Glastonbury festival! The pièce de résistance is the handcrafted DIY self-service bar which is a genius way to treat your guests to a free drink.
Get ready for your jaw to hit the floor as we share with you a super cool and vibrant tipi wedding. Bride Sorrel and her maids look fierce in tulle and leather. Former GB Olympian Groom Ed rocks a burgundy suit. And the flowers and decor are out of this world. If you aren’t sitting comfortably, grab yourself a chair and sit back and enjoy.
We are bringing you all the goosebumps with this forest themed wedding, a day that is not only spectacularly stylish (and completely DIY-ed) but also a testament and tribute to the strength of love. Groom Will was diagnosed with cancer at the start of 2018, six months before he was due to marry Kirsty – his childhood sweetheart – in June. Too poorly to make the original date, the couple postponed their wedding until September, grateful that all of their suppliers were able to accommodate the difficult situation and new date. Wonderfully, Will got the all-clear before the wedding, turning the day into the most poignant and perfect celebration. We could not be more thrilled for this sweet couple, or more in awe of their epic styling efforts, which nail their rustic boho brief beautifully.
If you dream of your big day in pastel tinted tones, then look no further: this country tipi wedding is perfection. Shot with Sarah-Jane Ethan’s sublime signature style, this stunning catalogue of captures details a wedding weekend that has it all: a breathtaking priory with petal-lined altar, hanging flower installation,, dreamy DIY touches including a macramé arch – and two miniature schnauzer ring bearers in burgundy bow ties to match the groom. Step this way for a magical summer celebration (washed down with wine shipped over from the couple’s favourite vineyards in Australia. Cheers!).
Good job stealing someone’s heart is not a crime, because these two police officers are a perfect match. Janey and Rhys’ wedding weekend at the fabulous Fforest Farm in Wales is utterly joyous, with beaming smiles, a beautiful setting and so many brilliant touches; think afternoon tea, confetti cannons and the bride doing the limbo – not to mention a steel band and rum cocktails. Yes, please! Keep an eye out, too, for Janey’s gorgeous lace KatyaKatya gown, which she customises with different coloured slips throughout the day. It complements the relaxed, rustic feel of the day and suits her perfectly.
This wedding is literally a masterclass in crafting. Practically every element you see was created by lovely Bride Sarah and her team of helpers. Her wonderful Mum joked that this wedding was made purely from balls of string and you’ll soon see what she means…
As well as Sarah looking utterly gorgeous in the Hollie Dress by Grace Loves Lace, her 12 bridesmaids (!) look stunning in white gowns too. The whole effect is just dreamy and so perfect for a blue-skies and sunshine wedding. Rosie Kelly was there to capture the images, and Story Catchers Films have created such an atmospheric film – sadly for us, Pen and Cam of Story Catchers have moved back to Australia, but if you’re planning a wedding on the other side of the world then do contact them! They are the best, just watch the film and you’ll see!
To quote the bride “we had a bit of a hotchpotch of things, but it worked!”
Oh my did it! And the results are spectacular.
We love it when couples really go for it and incorporate everything they love. Even more so when we hear they’ve had a go at creating some of the beautiful displays you see before you themselves.
RMW recommended supplier Frances Sales Photography did an amazing job at capturing all the decor and emotion of this DIY Rustic Tipi Wedding at Riverhill Gardens, Sevenoaks. So make sure you’re sitting comfortably, you could be here pinning for a while.
Dreaming of a tipi wedding? I don’t blame you, there is nothing more atmospheric, striking or magical than a tipi wedding. And whatever the weather, tipis create an amazing temporary structure meaning that you can bring your wedding reception to you! But, there are lots of logistics to consider. Which is why we’d always recommend working with an experienced tipi company.
