Cheshire Tipi Wedding | Anna and Johnny

Hi Stephen, we managed to sit down and look through the photographs last night. They’re awesome. So so pleased. The photo from the corn field is just perfect.

Tipi Wedding in Cheshire

We have shot a wide variety of weddings during 2016, so a Tipi wedding didn't feel at all out of the ordinary. When we met up with Anna and Johnny to chat about their wedding ideas we absolutely loved their enthusiasm as we'd bounce creative ideas off of one another. The Tipi was hired and a date was set; Anna and Johnny were to tie the knot at Siddington Church just outside of Congleton with their Tipi reception being at Anna's parents house back garden in Cheshire.

The wedding had it all! remember I said we were bouncing ideas off each other.. well Anna and Johnny had ideas such as Tipi (check!), Live Band (check!), Fireworks (check!) - oh and also next door's corn field - as you may have already noticed! (check!).

 

Boho Wedding

I met up with Anna at her parents house in the morning as excitement levels were on a steady exponential increase every minute. When I arrived the Tipi was fully set up by the fabulous guys at Tipi Unique who supplied Anna and Johnny with their Wedding Tipi for the day. Anna and Johnny had hired our double wedding photographer package, so while I was with Anna getting prepared with her family, Emma was with Johnny and the guests at Siddington Church capturing the build up and any 'pre-ceremony nerves'. 

 

Cheshire Country Wedding

After the church ceremony, it was time to head back to Anna's parents home for their tipi wedding reception for canapes and cocktails! This Little Piggy Catering made sure everyone was well fed with some amazing pork barmcakes. We were treated to some incredible speeches, which included Anna's love for horses being rubbed off on Johnny through demonstration of a blow up horse after which Southwestband then provided us with the upbeat tunes to take us through the night! During all the partying we snuck outside for a couple of night time portraits and were treated to firework finale! Boom!
