Kate and Col's stunningly summery Tipi wedding
Chilled Summer Wedding Day
I first met with Kate and Col for a drink in our local village where we got to know each other a little better while they filled me in on the details of their amazing Cheshire Tipi Wedding. I remember us all keeping our fingers crossed that the weather would be kind, and boy did the sun have his hat on when their day finally arrived.
My day began by meeting up with Kate and some of her friends and family at Kate and Col’s home. It was a wonderfully bright, sunny and, quite frankly, perfect British summers day, we all couldn’t believe our luck. This lent a relaxed feel to the morning. No stress, just fun and laughter.
The morning also saw me meeting for the first time, the cracking Bruce Marshall of lovetwofilm. I really enjoy working with videographers, especially when they approach a wedding in the same unobtrusive and relaxed style as I work and so, me and Bruce hit it off straight away.
Village Church Ceremony
Soon it was time to travel the 200 yards to Kate and Col’s local church in the picturesque Grappenhall village. Now St Wilfred’s church is not small my any means, so it was amazing to see that it was fit to burst with all of Kate and Col’s friends and family.
The ceremony was relaxed with a really fun vicar. There were heartfelt readings and also a few giggles. It was then out into the dazzling sunshine where Kate and Col were greeted by a sea of smiling faces.
After lots of kisses (for Kate and Col, not me) and congratulations, Kate and Col set off in a stunning classic beetle on their journey to their fabulous Cheshire Tipi wedding reception at the beautifully located Harthill Weddings.
Cheshire Tipi Wedding Reception
They had perfectly created a rustic festival vibe with hay bales, lawn games, huge buckets of ice cold bottles of beer, bunting and probably one of the sunniest days of the whole of 2017. I couldn’t have been more happy for them.
The speeches were a fantastic combination of laughter and tears. Laughter in the form of Kate’s dad living up to the tipi vibe and appearing from nowhere dressed for the occasion. Tears between Col and his very proud brother, who was also his best man.
As the golden light of the evening set in, people enjoyed burgers and hotdogs from the american style burger van. Chilling in the grass, laughing and joking with a beer in their hand, watching the setting sun. “What more could you ask for”….to quote Col.
Funky dance moves and roasted marshmallows was where I left them to enjoy the rest of their night.
Here are just a handful of images from their incredible day and my first Cheshire tipi wedding photography.
