I nearly fell off my chair when Daisy and Tom told me that their theme for their wedding was ‘Glastonbury with a touch of Downton Abbey’. This wedding was going to be so far up my street I could hardly believe my luck. Tipi weddings are cool – fact.
In the week running up to the wedding the weather was horrible – torrential rain, thunder and grey miserable clouds. I wondered how on earth their tipi was going to hold out and feared that their hardwork to make the perfect summer solstice might not pay off. Thankfully I was wrong to worry because on the day of the wedding the sun shone.
The tipi was in the grounds of Daisy’s Mum’s beautiful cottage. My day kicked off there for bride and maid prep and the mood was incredibly relaxed. Daisy looked stunning in her Stella York dress and Rachel Simpson shoes.
Daisy was driven to Little Missenden church in an adorable blue vintage car which was the actual car from Downtown Abbey (there were genuine squeals of exciting when it pulled into the driveway!) Little Missenden church is always a pleasure to work in – it’s picture perfect and steeped in history. Daisy and Tom made their promises and became part of the fabric of the church in a beautiful ceremony.
Afterwards we all headed back to the tipi where I caught my first glimpse of the inside. It was love at first sight! Daisy and Tom had dressed it perfectly and guests were amazed. After a glorious meal and some super speeches we were treated to a spectacular sunset across the fields. Then Daisy and Tom took to the dancefloor to get the party started and danced to the theme tune from Ice Age. Tom took Daisy to the cinema on their first ever date to see Ice Age, aged 12!
Daisy and Tom I LOVED your wedding. Thank you so so much for allowing me to be there. I have such incredibly fond memories of your day, enjoy the pictures xxx
