Real Wedding Wednesday – Ellie & Tom
We are super excited to be sharing this wedding with you, Ellie and Tom were a great couple to work with and from the very start knew that they wanted a wedding that was relaxed and reflected their own personalities.
This was very much a creative wedding with more hours folding paper origami flowers and cranes, that I am sure they could have made a full time job doing it with the time they invested. But I am sure you will agree it was totally worth it. The tipis looked stunning with 1000 paper cranes hanging as a centre piece in the tipis.
There was no detail that Ellie and Tom did not consider, from their save the date cards through to providing a bell tent for the children to play in, a definite “no adults play zone”. But there was lots for the game playing adults to participate in from tin can alley to giant jenga and space hoppers.
They decided against the traditional one wedding cake, hosting a wedding bake off. Lots of family and friends got involved from the young to the old and the winner received a hand painted plate – another special touch that made Ellie and Tom’s wedding so personal.
This was our first wedding to host a “Silent Disco”, see from the photos and video how much everyone enjoyed this.
The celebration was hosted at Shiningford Manor next to Carsington Water in Derbyshire. This offers amazing self catering facilities with hot tubs and swimming pool as well as the outdoor space they needed to host the tipis and their outdoor wedding ceremony. This really was a weekend celebration. On the Sunday after the wedding, Ellie & Tom had a bbq brunch around the pool with the family and friends that had stopped on site, what a perfect end to the weekend.
