We are so excited to invite you to the Autumn Open Weekend at Cattows Farm, Leicester on Saturday 30th September & Sunday 1st October 11am-3:30pm.
We are heading back to the beautiful Cattows Farm to provide a weekend of pure wedding delight set in a beautiful piece of the Leicestershire countryside. The event will provide you with the inspiration of how your tipi wedding could look and feel.
Cattows Farm offers the flexible space to host an intimate tipi wedding for 50 guests to a spectacular celebration for up to 250 guests, so if you haven’t yet booked your wedding venue, this event could help you decide!
Hand Picked Suppliers
We would love for you to join us and our selection of handpicked suppliers for a weekend full of beautiful, fun and quirky outdoor wedding inspiration.
Feeding Your Guests
Taking care of the food in the tipis will be Saffron Catering, who will be serving up some delicious treats for you to feast on. BUT who can resist a street food van! That is why we have a host for them to see and sample over the weekend. Joining us on the Saturday is Biddulphs Pizzeria, Frococonut, & Kerb Bears. Sunday’s street food line up includes, The Hidden Gem Wood Fired Pizza, Little Retro Kitchen, Frococonut and the gorgeous vintage Citroen van “Libby-Loo” who will be on hand to serve award winning coffees and teas.
Watering Your Guests
Joining us in the chill-out tipi will be Past to Present Vintage Hire with their gorgeous hexagonal bar made from vintage potato crates. But as we all know, all good bars needs a good bartender. Introducing the Italian chief Mambologist and cocktail expert Thomas from Mambo Mobile Bars. They will be serving up delicious mocktails and talking all things boozy with you. PLUS as an extra special treat we have Kilo Wines offering wine sampling and if you fancy it you could also purchase a glass or two.
The Pretty Detail
We have gone all out with the Tipis at the Autumn Open weekend, showcasing not one but two set ups, giving you double delight. We wanted both to have very different vibes so we enlisted the help of two supper talented stylists that we love working with. Introducing Lesley from The Rustic Wedding Company and Cathy from Boelle Events.
As always when it comes to pulling all of the styling together it is very much a collaboration of lots of suppliers coming together. Joining Lesley and Cathy are two British Flower Growers and florists – we are supper excited and very proud of this. The Flower Patch and Catkin Flowers will be getting very creative with their flowers and foliage.
Rebecca Diamond will be performing LIVE MUSIC for us in the tipis. Rebecca has witnessed many beautiful love stories over her years of performing and thoroughly enjoys ensuring every performance is totally unique.
Behind the lens capturing the event is not one but two amazing photographers. First up is Sarah Vivienne who captured all the pretty detail at the relaunch of Pipewell Hall, not only will she be capturing the stills, but Sarah can also offer a videography service too. Plus we have Darren Cresswell Photography who has captured a number of events at Cattows Farm before.
We love working with both of these peeps and we know you are going to love them too.
Keeping Your Guests Entertained
It is always a nice touch to add that little something to keep your guests entertained and we have lots fun planned over the weekend to be inspired by. In My Life will be applying temporary tattoos from their tattoo parlour, you will be able to have your photo taken in Vintage Booth’s NEW Bell Tent photo booth PLUS a VW campervan Photo Booth from Vintage Inspired Wedding Hire, the bonus of this is it can also transport you to your wedding.
Have you ever dreamed of having an outdoor ceremony? Jo from My Perfect Ceremony will be joining us all weekend, she will be on hand to talk you through the steps and how she can help create for you a truly bespoke outdoor ceremony.
When your wedding night has finished, who actually says it has finished? Why not extend the celebration and stop over in your wedding field along with guests. Create your own Guest Village with this fully furnished bell tents from Bell Bliss.
Luxury Tipi Coloured Toilets
Will my toilets arrive with toilet roll? This is one of the most common outdoor wedding questions I get asked. Knifton’s will not only provide you with the toilet roll but also these unique tipi coloured luxury toilets, this will be another show stopper that you and your guests will be talking about for years to come!
