This shoot is pretty, when we saw all the detail come together, we squealed with delight. Tuscan Romance being the idea behind it all, it really does feel very romantic and very dreamy indeed.
A fabulous team of creatives was behind pulling this together to showcase how your tipi wedding could look and feel (full supplier list at the bottom).
Lesley from The Rustic Wedding Company
Here is what she had to say about the shoot;
“The inspiration for this shoot stemmed from the beautiful hill towns of Tuscany and the surrounding olive groves and vineyards. Renowned for its art history and its beautiful landscape, Tuscany is a region that truly stimulates the senses and we wanted to incorporate traditional renaissance elements, along with some contemporary design and artwork into our tipi styling plan.”
The Tipi Walkway Entrance
The entrance to the tipi was lined with quaint topiary trees and two large pedestal floral arrangements that were just devine.
Hanging Centre Piece
Adding to the intimate atmosphere were the lush drapes that sat above the main seating area. Created with a light chiffon material and lush green foliage.
The Sweetheart Table
The hanging swing created a stunning sweetheart table. This was a real focal point with its gorgeous florals created by Catkin Florist. The perfect spot to enjoy your first meal as a married couple.
The Main Table-Scape
Felt like a “Tuscan Feast” with its foliage centrepeice topped with fresh figs, peaches, grapes and blackberries. Rustic urns bursting with romantic blooms, including David Austin garden roses, plate sized dahlias and olive branches.
Bespoke Place Settings
Glass guest plates created a stunning look, allowing each plate to be personalised with the guest names. Acrylic menus added that modern touch and cut glass tea lights, along with waterfall napkins.
The Sweet Treat Display
Setting of the cake display was an intricate, hand-painted watercolour backdrop created by Amy Bailey Designs. Kat from Belmont House Cakery created a selection of gold embellished cakes and sweet treats. Candels, ruscus foliage and fruit was added to add to the beautiful ambience.
The Seating Plan
The big focal point on arrival was the faux topiary table plan. This combined the traditional renaissance garden and contemporary design with acrylic hanging cards with a modern calligraphy font, adding to the wow as you walked in to the tipis.
The Bar Area
The hexaganal bar created a focal point in the chill-out tipi, which later saw Tommy from Mambo Mobile Bars creating lots of fabulous mocktails.
