Hayley & Greg’s Cuttle Brook Tipi Wedding

This week we’re going back to the wedding of Hayley and Greg.  They got married with us in August...

This week we’re going back to the wedding of Hayley and Greg.  They got married with us in August 2018 in two giant hat tipis and chill out tipi.  Holding their reception at Cuttle Brook, the Sami Tipi exclusive site, their day was full of fun, outdoor games and laughter.  They filled the tipis with live music for their evening party and even got involved in some singing themselves!

This is one to really put a smile on your face, photographed by Sam Docker, the photos really do capture everything that’s great about them and their day.

What made you decide on an outdoor wedding?

We both love being outdoors, the thought of being stuck in the same room all day just didn’t appeal. We wanted freedom, space and a relaxed environment.

What did everybody wear?

I wore a beautiful Italian laced dress from Lauramour Bridal, Greg wore a stunning suit from Tweed and Groom, with amazing ties, which he also matched up for his groomsmen. My bridesmaids wore oyster lace dresses which were just beautiful.

Where did you choose to get married?

We married in our village church in Draycott, which was just perfect.

How did you feed your guests?

Our guests ate like kings, with afternoon tea catered by our award winning local tea room, with a mammoth finger buffet for the evening. Also Hidden Gem Pizza and ice cream so there was something for everyone!

How would you describe your theme/styling?

I’d say rustic, I hand made almost all the decorations and wanted it to be completely unique.

Hayley and Greg decided to have outdoor games outside the tipis.  We think it’s one of the best ways for keeping everyone entertained, especially the quiet time when you sneak off for photos.  They had mini golf and swing ball, perfect for kids both big and small!
