The saying goes "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue." And what better "something blue" than your best girls; In gorgeous halterneck dresses I might add. I love that these beautiful ladies carried hoop bouquets rather than traditional posies, and the portraits of them walking through the fields are just adorable. As is the whole of this teepee outdoor wedding at the bride's parents farm.


"Sophie and Simon's beautiful day was absolute perfection. The girls started their day in the stunning Coworth Park which is where Prince Harry got ready for his wedding day only weeks before (and I could see why). Their morning was so relaxed and chilled with the amazing Melissa Clare taking care of hair and makeup. A special mention to the perfectly wild bouquet and floral hoops which were created by the super talented Tarnia Williams. After a beautiful church service, guests were greeted at their family farm with drinks before being whisked off in style on the back of tractors and trailers to the hidden location for the rest of the day.

Teepee Outdoor Wedding

We're always in awe of couples who have parents, friends or family that own some beautiful land and are lucky enough to host their wedding there. The relaxed vibes and feeling of being at home must be euphoric. Sophie & Simon chose a teepee outdoor wedding which gave them the freedom they desired, as well as looking incredible in the field. But never fear if you need a little advice on hosting a tent wedding or in fact the different tent types available we've done the research for you. You're welcome.


"Nestled among oak trees, they had cleared an area at Sophie's dad's farm and put up huge teepees for the wedding breakfast. Swings and dreamcatchers had been hung from trees along with perfectly thought out straw bale seating areas. As the sun set, fire pits were lit and string lights illuminated the trees. Along with the rest of the family, Sophie's sister had a big part to play in the planning as she manages weddings on the same property at Stokes Farm Barn. I have to say that every little detail had been perfectly taken care of and the day was truly seamless. It was like a 5* experience in the middle of a woodland! Sophie and Simon have a truly beautiful love and are such chilled yet fun loving characters and created a truly relaxed and beautiful wedding." - Rebecca Searle Photography
