Congratulations to Our Tipi Competition Winners!

Tipi Competition WinnersToday on the blog we welcome our competition winners! At the start of the year we ran a special competition for a chance to win 50% off your tipi wedding with All About Me! We had a wonderful response and a huge number of entries. We can now reveal that the lucky winners are  Karen and Tom.  We cannot wait to see their big day and help them enjoy their winnings! We had a little chat with them about their big day and their competition win;

The Love Story

We met on the first day of University but we didn’t become a couple until around 6 months later. Tom proposed in front of the Trevi fountain in Rome, it was very romantic.

Our Competition Winners – Tom and Karen

All About Me Competition winners

How did you feel when you heard you won 50% off your wedding?

We both felt quite shocked, it was completely unexpected! After that we felt extremely lucky and it’s made our day feel even more special.

competition winners

How did you choose a date for your big day?

We wanted a summer wedding and it was close in date to our engagement anniversary.

How long did you leave between your engagement and your big day for planning?

It’s around two years as we wanted to take the time to plan the wedding.

competition winners

Did you always know you wanted tipis for your wedding?

Yes, we always wanted an outdoor summer wedding and a tipi really completes that.

What theme and décor are you having for you big day?

It’s sort of a country fete theme with hay bales, bunting and pimms.

competition winners

Have you chosen your food options?

Yes, we are having a hog roast for all our guests to go with the country fete feel.

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?

I think just celebrating with our friends and family in a beautiful setting.

competition winners

What is your favourite aspect of the tipi and what made it the perfect venue for you big day?

It’s a lot more special than a standard marquee and we are looking forward to seeing it lit up with fairy lights in the evening. I think the whole look makes it perfect.

Why did you choose All About ME?

We liked the extra options, the photos on the website really gave us a good idea of how it would look and we found it priced competitively.

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.

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.
