Festival Style Tipi Wedding


Tipi wedding with Festival Vibes in Essex

Claire and Adam were lucky enough to tie the knot this weekend at their lovely home in Billericay, Essex. Having been a long family friend of Claire's for many years and having photographed her Mum's wedding last year, I was so chuffed and excited to be asked to photograph her and Adam's Festival style Tipi wedding this year!

I've been to many Chisholm parties over the years so I knew Claire and Adam's wedding was going to be a banger! haha. The theme was colourful festival vibes with a tipi marquee, glamping, an awesome mariachi band, ice-cream, BBQ food and plenty of prosecco, obviously!

When they booked their wedding 18 months ago they never could have dreamed that the Easter bank holiday weekend was going to be an absolute scorcher! The weather couldn't have been more perfect for a festival style tipi wedding.

When you have 9 bridesmaids you have to expect some sort of chaos during the morning! But that wasn't the case at all. The girls were so chilled and the morning was all laughs whilst getting ready. It was so lovely to be a part of and Claire looked insane in her lace dress and cathedral veil!

Also- how beautiful are the colourful bouquets?!

The couple married at their local church in Downham which is such a beautiful location and is surrounded by yellow fields and views for miles. After a lovely service, Claire and Adam jumped in their quirky little Tuk Tuk and we headed for a local woodland where the ground is covered in bluebells for a little walk and a few photos.

Back at the Tipi, the party really got going when the mariachi band turned up and surprised the guests with their brilliant entertainment. It doesn't take much for this lot to get involved and join in with the singing and dancing! haha

I love that Claire and Adam didn't feel the need to follow traditions and really made this festival style tipi wedding their own! They wanted everyone to feel relaxed and enjoy a good drink, good food and a good dance all night long- and that is exactly what happened.

I honestly don't think it could have gone any better for them. All the hard work and planning really paid off to create this epic festival wedding at their own home.

Claire and Adam, I am so pleased for you both! The day was insane and I'm in awe of you both for pulling off such a brilliant day. Thank you so much for having me share it with you both, I loved every minute and feel so grateful that I got to share it with such a fabulous bunch of people.

Here is a little sneak peek of your festival style tipi wedding! I cannot wait to share more with you soon!
