My Wedding Story – Part 5 – 2 weeks to go!!!!

One week and five days to be precise. The Tipis are being built as we speak! That makes it really feel like its actually happening, if you know what I mean.

The Tipis would usually be built a day or two before the wedding, but there is another wedding the weekend before ours at the same venue, so the Tipis are staying up. This has worked out great for us at it means we will have longer to dress the venue. The All About Me team have been so flexible and brilliant with letting us do this, we can’t thank them enough. In Fact, we have been so lucky with all of our suppliers. This is who we have gone with;

They have all been really accommodating and are used to working with the Tipis which we think is very important.

The next time I write a blog post will be after the wedding! By then I will be in a better place to be able to provide some useful information about what has gone well and what has gone not so well. Hopefully everything will be brilliant! No matter what the weather I know that I can rely on the Tipis to keep all of my friends and family warm and dry. The thing I am most excited about is the fire pits. They make the Tipis so cosy and inviting and I just know that people who don;t know what to expect will be blown away by how spectacular the Tipis will look.

I will post lots of photos next time. And if my photos come out well I will tell you all about my photographers!

 

Bunting Queen of Tipis!

Are you looking for bunting for your Wedding???? We just want to quickly say that the wedding bunting that they put up for our Open Weekend looked simply lovely. It was dusky Pink and Sage Green, which made our bar area extra special.

They can supply bunting of pretty much any colour and design, truly making them the Bunting Queen of Cheshire! Check out the website for more details or for your Christmas Bunting!

 

Andrew Southcott Catering

Ok so, we know we raved all day yesterday about our Open Weekend at Trafford Hall, but we haven’t quite finished yet.

Thanks to Andrew Southcott Catering for coming along and giving all of our potential Brides and Grooms information about the superb catering service they supply. They specialise in marquee events and Marquee or Tipi Weddings in particular. They are therefore the perfect choice for looking after your catering needs at your Tipi wedding, which often come with their own special requirements.

The Catering Team are highly professional and come recommended as a great Cheshire Wedding Caterer.

Last but not least

Ok, so we admit we have been raving about our Open Weekend quite a lot today. But we can’t stop without saying how flipping great Trafford Hall were. What a delight it is to work with such a professional venue and such a lovely bunch of people.

This is only a very short post, but can we just mention Trafford Hall is available to hire for Conferences and Events as well as Weddings!

Just look how great our Tipis look in the Trafford Hall grounds.

Anyone need the toilet????

How can we say thanks to Blue Loos for coming to our Open Weekend without talking about how lovely their toilets are? Well the truth is, we can’t. Because their toilets truly are lovely. If you think that mobile loos are all the same, you will be pleasantly surprised by Blue Loos. They are professionally maintained, smell lovely and compliment the quality of our Tipis perfectly. They come in a range of styles including Luxury!

Give them a call to quote for your event now and tell them we sent you!

Light Up Your Tipis!

So continuing on the theme of ‘bigging up’ our suppliers, we would like to say a big bright thanks to Light Tech. Their amazing lighting displays make our Tipis glow in the dark and definitely give it the wow factor. We don;t need to say any more about this. The pictures speak for themselves!

Oh and just to mention – they also do Firework displays. Check out their website.

Living Colour Floral Design – Wedding Florist

The Tipis at the Open Weekend looked radiant thanks to Living Colour Floral Design. Heather works with All About Me and Tipi Weddings a lot, so is an expert at knowing what looks just right. Her floral displays are just stunning, and she makes our Tipis look beautiful at every open weekend.

We owe a massive thank you to Heather, and it goes without saying that we highly recommend her. If you are looking for a florist for your Cheshire wedding, especially if you are having a Tipi Wedding, call Heather on 01925 269783 and have a chat. Or checkout her Facebook page for some more great photos of her creations.

Yummy Thanks to Horseradish Wedding Catering

We had the pleasure of Horseradish Catering’s company all weekend at Trafford Hall, and their representative Katie, brightened up our Tipis with her smile and her lovely food. Katie brought along some yummy treats from Horseradish, creating a very rustic and quirky display.

The table was filled with picnic-style delights and looked stunning. Horseradish can supply bespoke catering packages for any special occasion, but we happen to think that their wedding buffets are delicious. In fact Jamie had to be kept away from the display table for most of the Open Weekend so that he didn’t ruin Katie’s lovely display.

Take  a look at the pic below, and make sure you check out their website if you are looking for a Cheshire based catering company for your Wedding.

Lets start with saying how fantastic Pretty Little Trio made the Tipis look. If you weren’t lucky enough to see them for yourself, take a look at these pics. Their vintage china is simply stunning and really compliments our Tipis. Vintage Weddings are really popular this year and this Cheshire based company make hiring great quality vintage tea sets and plates so easy. Check out their website – and make sure you read about why their company is called Pretty Little Trio. Its so cute!

We also wanted to let you know that they can now do colour coordinated china sets. So for example, if you have a blue and white colour scheme for your wedding, they can provide the crockery to match for up to 200 people. If however you are having more of a mix and match wedding style, they have china sets for lots more people, so you are almost unlimited by numbers.

Thanks again for making our weekend at Trafford Hall all the more special.
