Open Weekend Inspiration – Autumn Vineyard Tipi Wedding

Last October, our lovely suppliers who work together to dress the tipis for our open weekend, collaborated on this elegant styled vineyard inspiration tipi shoot, captured by Lucy G Photography. We thought we’d share the images today ahead of our next open day. We think they are gorgeous!

The inspiration for the shoot draws on a subtle vineyard theme, with our bleach wood wine barrels, rich deep wine coloured florals, textiles and stationery with gorgeous sophisticated dresses for an elegant twist on a tipi wedding.

The tipis were set out with a main reception, party tent along with a smaller ceremony/blessing tent that overlooks the lake.The flowers by Living Colour were just a little opulent, with stone urns placed on wine barrels and deep, claret tones in the stunning bouquet.

The stationery again played on the vineyard and wine theme with beautiful hand painted invitations, table plan, save the dates and menus by Hattie Boo Designs as well as all the signage details. The Hollies Farm Shop provided the fabulous cheese and deli board, which Lucy G Photography managed to photograph just before everyone swooped on the cheese board to sample it!

Our bride Charlotte had her look created by talented Clare at Harry Jon, with a very natural look with her hair swept up in a loose up do with the occasional tousled curl loosely falling down around her face and shoulders. For the Charlie Brear dress, Charlotte’s hair was styled with a pretty floral hair clip by Gypsy Rose Vintage.

Talking Tipis and Toilets!

It is understandable that guests who are invited to a wedding or any type of event in a Tipi might be concerned about the toilet situation. If you have had experiences of festivals or camping as a youngster, you may have terrible memories of blocked toilets and smelly washrooms. And everyone has had that nightmare situation of being caught short without toilet roll. It isn’t something that most of us like to talk about much, but it is a reality of every day life and like it or not, it needs to be a main concern when organising any event based in one of our tipis.

Mobile Toilets

Blue Loos Luxury Toilets

Unless the tipi is adjacent to a house or facility with suitable WC’s – suitable to cope with the number of guests expected at your event, you will need to hire mobile toilets. There are a lot of great companies out there who provide these services, but you need to be aware that you don’t have to make do with substandard, or ‘builder-type’ toilets. The range of facilities that you can get these days is vast, and some of them are positively lovely!

No we aren’t joking. We are confident enough to say that the mobile toilet facilities that we recommend for use alongside our tipis are actually very luxurious! We work alongside a company called Blue Loos and their luxury range include;

  • Quality hand soaps
  • Fresh towels
  • Full carpeted interior
  • Modern fixings and chrome finishes
  • Aesthetically pleasing exteriors
  • Automatic air fresheners
  • hot and cold running water
  • heating
  • Mirrors with soft lighting
  • Heating
  • Background music

Now that doesn’t sound like your average mobile toilet does it? Blue Loos do provide a range of options to suit individual budgets, so if your event doesn’t require such luxury, you can go with their more standard models which are still really quite lovely.

So you can reassure your guests that your event will provide more than suitable toilet facilities, plenty of toilet roll, heating and even some ambient background music if you desire. Definitely not your average festival toilet!

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!

 

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!
