Real Peaktipis Wedding Leanne and Tom
Mr & Mrs Wilmott – Summer 2013 – Derbyshire
Festival bride Leanne said her ‘I Do’s’ to fiance Tom at the stunning rural retreat ‘Sycamore Barn Farm’ in the Derbyshire Peak District in August 2013. Leanne and Tom’s dream wedding was most definitely a Wedfest with good food, live music and a party feel, having been to Glastonbury, beautiful days, bearded theory and their local Stainsby festivals. All aspects of their Real Peaktipis wedding oozed festival fun, complete with a ‘Tea and Cake tent’, a naked wedding cake, flower-filled wellies and of course, Tipis!
Guests first stepped into the Wedfest event being greeted by 3 Giant Kata tipis at the end of a walkway lined by festival flags. The rustic chalkboard table plan stood just at the entrance to the tipis alongside a classic British letter box for cards, making for a beautiful ‘welcome’.
The wedding cake added a fantastic personal touch, with the bride & groom cake toppers sat on the edge with their two cats and finished off with a Tipi and the top surrounded by bunting icing and wellies.
Flowers were kept simple but tasteful with the affect that they’d just been picked from a field and placed in a mason jar to complement the rustic theming of wooden tables and benches for dining. A huge thank you to the amazing Simon Revill Photography for sharing these beautiful shots of Leanne & Tom’s special day.
Here’s what the lovely Leanne and Tom had to say about Peaktipis and their day:
“We first encountered Peaktipis when we went to a wedding fair over in Lincolnshire after we knew we wanted a festival style wedding, we just had to go and see the Tipis in person. As soon as we saw them, we knew, we had to have them! Matt was there to give us the low down on what options we had regarding lighting, seating and capacity which gave us more confidence to use Peaktipis as we were talking to the man who owns the business and also who actually puts up the Tipis too. The process from booking till the wedding day set-up was easy and straight forward, Matt kept in touch and updated us on a regular basis regarding any changes to our floor plans etc.
We couldn’t have been happier with the set-up and wedding day itself, with our three Tipis. It really was a sight to see. All of our friends and family commented on how interesting and comfortable they were when no one had any idea about how a wedding in a field was going to be! Our wedding day was our dream wedding and Peaktipis helped us create that and we’ll never forget it. Tipis are terrific, such an awesome part of our plans and guests were all so amazed by them. We couldn’t recommend Peaktipis enough”!
