Let’s Go Outside! Tipi Wedding Inspiration for your Outdoors Wedding in Yorkshire

The new outdoor wedding rule will make a big difference to many UK couples wanting to embrace spending as much time outside on their wedding day as our British weather will allow. You can have a dressed tipi, a naked tipi, and mix the legal, special part of getting married with a very relaxed and special wedding party afterwards. Many wedding venues boast countryside gardens and woodlands so you can enjoy fabulous indoor and outdoor areas. Some wedding venues are alongside a farm and if you’re an animal lover, you can be joined by alpacas, donkeys, and also take your pooch. Here’s how your outdoor wedding could look like.

Just add a pizza van! Make it a festival celebration with live music from the start till the dancing begins – or just dance whenever you get the urge. Why not invite your guests to have a bake-off and/or bring their own floral arrangements. At our wedding, our guests brought yellow flowers and daisies, and we enjoyed locally sourced and freshly made food.  You can celebrate anything that you love be it music, food, craft beers, flowers or cakes. Want ice cream for pudding – there’s an ice cream van for that. Include a Prosecco van, add outdoor games for all ages (I’d love a hook-a-duck!) and you’ve pretty much covered every type of guest you could think of.

As a lover of the bohemian fashion part of the 70s, photographing this lovely, happy couple with the bride wearing a genuine retro 70s dress with crochet panels and pretty tiers, natural bouncy curls, and a groom looking cool and chilled in a crisp white shirt with braces and a bow tie, made my day. Also a fan of macrame, and you couldn’t get better macrame designs than these!

This was a Springtime photoshoot held at Hirst Priory, a gorgeous wedding venue in East Yorkshire hosted by its very hospitable owners. I loved photographing real lovey-dovey couple Heidi and Rob in this natural setting. The tipis were all by Serentipi who dressed them all with many items from Born Boho Hire. All the florals were by Tracey from Campbells Flowers whose floral delights I have been photographing for many years. The two amazing women who brought it all together are long-time photographer friends, Jo and Jenny of The Alternatives. I will be adding all the names and links of all the goodies and suppliers just as soon as I can.
