 7) SEE THE TIPI LIGHT DISPLAY

It’s pretty cool, we love the tipis during the day, but love them just as much at night ….catch the gorgeously lit Tipis as the sun sets.  Friday night we stay open later so you can come along after work and see just how magical a Tipi wedding is……….

My Wedding Story – Part 1

Ok, so I am not sure how to start this. All About Me asked if I would be interested in writing a guest blog about my experiences of organising a wedding. Of course I said yes. What bride wouldn’t want to talk about her own wedding? And plus I guess it is a sort of stress therapy sharing all of my experiences with you all whether you are a Bride, Groom or Event Organiser, I hope you can gain some amount of amusement, useful information or ‘what not to do’ from my Blogs.

So I will start with a bit of background information. I am marrying my best friend Sam Mallows. We had our gorgeous baby boy Austen last October and Sam proposed to me shortly after we brought our little bundle of joy home for the first time.

The past year has been a bit of a roller coaster ride for us and our families. When I was 7 months pregnant with Austen I discovered that I had a brain tumour. My surgery was set for 5 months after I gave birth, so on Mothers Day this year, I went into hospital for my first craniotomy. Thankfully my brain tumour was benign and easily removed, so we continued with our wedding preparations shortly after I got out of hospital.

However everything took a bit of a turn for the worse when I got a brain infection, then had a seizure and various other post-op complications that I won’t bore you with now. Anyway, the point is, the wedding preparations have taken a bit of a back seat, and now I am on the road to recovery again, I am full steam ahead.

The only thing that we managed to get organised before I went in for my operation was the venue. There was not really any question about this. Both Sam and I wanted a bit of an alternative wedding. neither of us are very traditional, and we don’t particularly relish the idea of having the spotlight turned on us for the whole day. So what better way to divert attention than making the wedding venue breathtaking! Yes we could have gone down the hotel route. There are plenty of perfectly lovely hotels and wedding venues in Cheshire to choose from. However, we had seen pictures of Tipi weddings before and both of us absolutely loved the idea.

We headed to an Open Day at Chester Lakes in Doddleston where All About Me, Marquees and Events were showcasing their Giant Hat Tipis. They had the tents decorated with thousands of fairy lights, really pretty bunting, a dance floor, wooden benches and tables, tea lights, fire pits, a chill out lounge and a bar. It was everything we could have asked for. The fire pit just sealed the deal for me. We had decided on having a winter wedding but I was concerned that it would be a bit chilly in a tent in the middle of a field. But there were heaters and the fire pits gave the tents a lovely cosy, homely feel.

A massive plus point for us was the the All About Me Team were there and answered every question that we had. Sam, James, Dave and Andy were all so easy to talk to, and Austen also gave them his seal of approval which made our minds up for us. They checked their availability and we booked our wedding for November 8th. They can put up the tipis pretty much anywhere we want, but Chester Lakes seemed like the perfect location for us. Just outside of Chester, with lots of hotels nearby for guests to stay in.

So now we have a venue, and a date. We just need to organise food, music, invitations, decorations, the ceremony, dresses……………………and we only have 13 weeks left!!! We must be mad. Thankfully Samantha from All About Me is proving to be my lifeline. Will let you know how much progress we have made next week….

 

 

International Day of Friendship

Today is the International Day of Friendship! So we just wanted to take this opportunity to say thanks to some of our friends and to let you all know how great they are;

Trafford Hall and Chester Lakes– for providing such amazing venues for some of our Weddings.

Double Decker Bar – for keeping lots of our events ‘fully fuelled’ with refreshments.

Mr & Mrs W Photography – for giving us memories of our open day.

Andrew Southcott – for providing yummy catering.

Pretty Little Trio – for making our tipis look so amazing with the finishing touches.

We are lucky to have lots of fantastic friends and suppliers all over the UK. Check them out on our website here.

All About Me October Open Day at Trafford Hall, Chester

We are so pleased to announce our next Open Day with our new friends Trafford Hall from 17th to the 19th October 2014.

The Open Day provides us with an opportunity to show off our amazing Tipis and for you to come and take a look at a brilliant Cheshire venue for your wedding, corporate event, party or festival.

Trafford Hall is home to the National Communities Resource Centre, a charity which has been supporting low-income communities for over 15 years. They are unique in that they are lucky enough to be based in the most exquisite Georgian Manor house with stunning grounds that make the prefect choice of wedding venue. Just take a look at a selection of their gallery images to see how great your Wedding could look.

Our Tipis make the most of this amazing venue by providing a perfect atmosphere for any event. Whether you are looking for a fun relaxed feel for your event, or you are wanting a more professional, corporate setting, we can help you to decorate the tipis however you want. The Giant Hat Tipi is extremely impactful and much more interesting than a standard marquee. Come and see them for yourselves at our Open Day. We are open from 2pm until 9pm on the Friday and from 10am to 5pm on the Saturday and Sunday.

Our team members will be on hand to have a chat, and they can provide you with all of the information you want. They can even help you with advice about catering, music, decoration, lighting………pretty much everything you need to make your event a success.

If you are an Event Manager, then the Open Day is a perfect opportunity for you to get all of the information you need about hiring tipis. We can provide a range of different sizes and layouts depending upon your numbers and specific requirements.

If you haven’t considered using a tipi for your event before, come along to our Open Day and let us tell you why it is the perfect choice. We can guarantee that it will bring a special something to your wedding or party and will certainly help to make it a day to remember.
