Mike and Rachel’s Cuttle Brook Festival Wedding
Mike and Rachel celebrated their festival tipi wedding at Cuttle Brook, Derbyshire in three giant hat tipis.
When we first start talking couples through their planning journey, we more often than not end up on the conversation of making your day all about what you love – and boy did Mike and Rachel do just that!
They filled their day with so many fun, quirky details and we absolutely loved it! From Scalextric track with a Top Gear themed lap time score board, to a wood fired hot tub as a central point to their glamping village.
There was so much going on that we can’t wait to show it to you. Darren Cresswell was the master behind capturing all of the fun and games throughout their day. Sit back and enjoy…
Midway through their reception the heavens opened, meaning that plans had to make a quick u-turn. Luckily Mike and Rachel had hired Linzi, an awesome wedding planner from That Black and White Cat, to organise their day – including grabbing some of the groomsmen to help move all of the hay bales inside the tipis!
As well as some fairly impressive awning saving that she describes here;
“I was walking around the back of the Tipi in my rain jacket when it started to rain, and gust, very heavily. At this point, I noticed that the tent over the scalextric track was starting to lift off the ground. You can imagine me running inside to grab some groomsmen to help out. Five minutes later we were all drenched from holding the awning down while it tried to lift over the Tipi!”
Luckily it was only a short rain burst and the sun soon came out in full force for a gorgeous sunny, fun-filled wedding reception!
