Shiningford Manor Tipi Wedding
Real Wedding – Ellie & Tom
We are super excited to be sharing this wedding with you. Ellie and Tom were a great couple to work with, from the very start knew that they wanted a wedding that was relaxed and reflected their own personalities.
A DIY’ers Dream Wedding
This was very much a creative wedding full of DIY details. Ellie and Tom invested hours in to the DIY details of their Wedding. They folded all of their paper origami flowers and 1000 paper cranes however 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.
In the evening they hosted a “Silent Disco”. All guests are given a set of headphones to listen to their own music channel. Just looking through the photos and video you can see how much everyone enjoyed this.
Hosted at Shiningford Manor next to Carsington Water in Derbyshire. This offers amazing self catering facilities with hot tubs and swimming pool as well along with 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 and 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.
