Smaller Weddings are EPIC and we’re going to tell you why we love them so much!! Smaller weddings and elopements have been popular for a long while and fill our Pinterest boards with lots of incredible inspiration. At a time when smaller weddings and intimate gatherings are very much in the minds of many couples, we wanted to share some of those inspirational ideas and how they can absolutely be a reality rather than an aspiration, particularly with a tipi or marquee at your event.
There are so many benefits to throwing an intimate wedding or party and smaller certainly does not need to mean less incredible, far from it. Maybe you are thinking quite differently about how to plan your wedding at the moment too, different but just as amazing!
We are here to make sure your event is incredible and we are really excited to make it happen! Marquees and Tipis can make your event really special no matter the size, location or time of year.
We are really excited to meet you at the All About Me Tipi and Marquee Open Weekend, this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
You can visit us this weekend at Delamere Events on Friday the 4th October from 2pm to 9pm and on Saturday the 5th and Sunday the 6th October from 10am – 5pm. You’ll find our incredible event spaces all beautifully dressed, by the lakeside, with lots of inspiration. You can just come along on the day, there is plenty of free parking or if you’d like to have a chat with one of our expert friendly event coordinators, register to let us know you are thinking of coming along. You can contact James , call us 01244 360 214 or fill in our enquiry form here. You’ll receive a goody bag and glass of bubbly on arrival.
There are lots of reasons to come visit us this weekend….
We think its pretty unique to be able to visit both a Tipi and Marquee side by side, which do you prefer? You can see both at the same time and decide which is for you. It’s a hard choice as both are stunning and perfect spaces for your wedding day. Both will be set up with different layouts, table set ups, choice of furniture, dance floors, lighting and bar spaces. Perfect for helping you make your mind up. We will also have a Glamping village all set out for you to see how comfy and cosy you and your guests could be.
We are so excited about the huge number of you that have been in touch to let us know that you are coming to our Tipi and Marquee Showcase this weekend! We will be at our beautiful lakeside venue Delamere Events this Friday 5th October (2-9pm) as well as all day Saturday and Sunday 6th and 7th Oct (10-5pm). Come down and see the tipis, marquee, glamping village and street food zone complete with feature naked tipi, all styled to perfect to inspire you!
So with just a few sleeps left till our amazing open weekend, we wanted to give you a little peek at the styling inspiration that’s been going on behind the scenes here at All About Me with our brilliant suppliers. (PS you can see a full list of all our epic suppliers at the end of this blog post). Don’t forget you can still get in touch to let us know you are coming along and reserve your goody bag, or just come along on the day, no appointment necessary.
With just a few weeks till our amazing, bigger then ever before open weekend, we asked our stylist Rebecca from Pretty Creative to give us some of her top tips on styling your wedding marquee.
We are the only Open Weekend in the Northwest where you can see Tipis and Marquees side by side in a stunning lakeside setting, along with an entire Glamping and Street Food Village. We also cover the whole of the UK!
Here’s Rebecca with Part One of ‘How to Style your Wedding Marquee’; Part TWO on Friday is How to style your Tipi Wedding …
I’m so excited about styling the open weekend and I think its so lovely to make a statement with the entrance to your beautiful wedding marquee. It doesn’t have to be elaborate but creating a focal point at the entrance, leads the eye in and gives a sense of arrival.
You could create an entrance with a clear span frontage. Place potted bay trees, hung with tea lights, or flower arrangements on barrels either side of the door. Cluster hurricane lanterns next to them to be lit at night for your evening guests too. Add some attractive seating areas that go with your theme to finish the look. You could also create a walkway to your marquee, lined with hanging lanterns, which look magical at night too.
Marquee wedding are so versatile and unlike a venue in a building, your marquee is a total blank canvas, the perfect space for you to design. You can decide how big you want it, where you want the marquee and then exactly how to use the space.
Thinking about what will be happening on the day, you can create different spaces to make the most amazing day. A welcoming entrance area with seating, perhaps hire some cool sofas and low tables, you need a great bar area of course, maybe near the seating, a dance floor with plenty of room for everyone to join in. Eating is probably pretty key! So think about how you want the tables arranged and how they can be adapted later on in the evening as the use of the space changes. If you have a spare zone, think about adding an extra bit of fun for you and your guests, a glitter station, a Photo Booth or maybe a gin or Prosecco station.
I love the clear span sections that you can add into the All About Me wedding marquees! In the day you can look up to the skies, watch the clouds float by, the sun going down and the stars at night.
You can also create stunning focal points with features such as hanging floral hoops above the round bar, or hang cool addison oak lighting beams with foliage, chandeliers and strings of festoon lighting, all create atmosphere and the wow factor.
Lighting in your wedding marquee can be so magical. From festoon lighting, pealights, twinkly fairy lights, colourful up lighters, light up letters, candle light and stunning hanging candelabras and chandeliers. Lighting creates ambience and atmosphere and is just so pretty.
Finally, its a simple one really but gorgeous flowers, linen and stationery can tie the whole feel of the wedding marquee together. It can be as elaborate or as simply elegant as you want. Linen and florals soften the space even more and tie everything together for the perfect finishing touch to your wedding marquee!
The snow has gone, spring is here and we are super ready for an amazing 2018 of events and weddings in our award winning Tipis! Voted the best marquee provider in the region for the fifth year running by our lovely customers.

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 styling is by Rebecca at Pretty Creative , dresses curated by Lucy at The White Closet Studios, Liverpool, beautiful florals by Heather at Living Colour, stationery by Emma at Hattie Boo Designs, hair and make up by Clare at Harry Jon and textiles by Kaye Hannabuss Textiles.
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.
If you are looking for some boho inspiration for your Tipi Wedding you will love these images on the blog today. Get pinning to your Pinterest boards! Whenever we hold our Open Days* the creative team of suppliers we work with to dress the tipis, use the chance to create an inspirational photo shoot. These images were created last spring with dreamcatchers and strong boho influences that are still a really popular trend a year on. These images also featured on wedding blog Boho Bride.
*ps our next Open Day weekend is Fri to Sun 27/28/29 October 2017
