Katie + Andy – A Gorgeous Garden Tipi Wedding

Someone please tell me where to begin!

First of all, I had trouble choosing which photos to blog because they’re all seriously delicious, and secondly where do I start with Katie + Andy and their gorgeous wedding?

Lets go back to when I very first met them last year. It was September. It was a warm evening and if I remember right, it was 6:30. I knocked on a pretty green  door to a beautiful home and I then heard someone shout ‘Come In’! I stood still for a moment {It is  someones else’ home afterall – what if they were expecting a friend?!} A few moments later, as I reached for the handle, Katie opened the door with the brightest smile and I was greeted by the most welcoming family! I knew instantly they couldn’t wait to tell me about all the plans and wow… Katie, Andy and the family could not wait for May 2013. By the time I left, neither could I!

The next 8 months couldn’t move fast enough. I knew it would be a stunning day… and it was. I arrived on the Friday to help with the set up and completely got to know every little corner of every little space and by then I almost knew the complete schedule off by heart. It was filled to the brim with the pretty and the gorgeous. On their wedding day, our typical UK weather played up a little but never for one second did it spoil any moment . Noone could stop smiling, and their wedding party and family were such joy and fun to work with.

For me, it was non stop from the word go as soon as I arrived – I wanted it absolutely perfect for them.  I adored working for such a lovely couple and here’s a massive ‘Yay! We did it good hug‘ to the wonderful team and hard-working people I worked with… beginning with the uber talented Emma Case Photography for her breathtaking photos…


After the church service, Katie + Andy took a short walk with all their guests back to the barn and tipi…

From gorgeous paper poms to pretty florals by CK Flowers… the tipi looked amazing…

So gorgeous, right?


The evening kicked off with their First Dance to Ho Hey, followed by a fantastic band – Ti Funk.

And this is something you don’t want to miss. Every time I watch their film highlights, I can’t stop smiling. Yes, I’ve watched it several times  already : )

Much love… Carms xoxo
