Real Peaktipis Weddings


Real Peaktipis Wedding Oliver and Charlotte

 Mr & Mrs Appleby – Spring 2013 – Derbyshire & Staffordshire

We’re looking fondly back at a fabulously fun and laid back Real Peaktipis Wedding held across two counties, from spring 2013 on the Blog today. A huge thank you to the talented HBA Photography for sharing their story telling images and epic stop motion video of this wonderful day with us….Enjoy.

Real Peaktipis Wedding Oliver and Charlotte

The lovely Oliver and Charlotte {AKA Mr & Mrs Appleby} married in April 2013 at the stunning Meynell Langley in Kirk Langley in Derbyshire, followed by a spectacular Peaktipis reception at Abbotsholme School  in Staffordshire.

After an exciting morning fastening braces and beautifying, their special day began with their ‘I Do’s at the picturesque Meynell Langley – a distinctive country mansion with amazing views.

Charlotte and her four bridesmaids all held giant round helium balloons as a fantastic alternative to flowers, which gave their ceremony a wonderful whimsical feel.

The newly Wed’s then left Meynell Langley in a classic red 1954 MG TF, headed together for their reception in the impressively decorated Tipis back in Staffordshire. On arrival, guests were greeted with candy floss and strawberry daiquiris in jam jars with paper straws, which set the fun and relaxed feel for the rest of the day perfectly.

Oliver is the owner of the fabulously quirky ‘Poppy Trading Company’ and so they had an eclectic array of wonderful rustic trestle tables and mismatched vintage chairs, which looked so ‘at home’ inside the Tipis.

The tables had a rustic yet vintage feel with hessian table runners, sliced log centerpieces and placemats, potted plants and cute wooden heart confetti. Everyone feasted on a fabulously traditional fish & chip wedding breakfast, pizza for supper and an ice cream van for desert! Guests served champagne from teapots into vintage teacup for the toasting the new Mr and Mrs Appleby.

There were LOTS of lovely DIY details throughout created by the bride, groom, their family and friends  including an upcycled blackboard dresser table plan, homemade signage, a suitcase of flip flops for ‘tired feet’, a suitcase of blankets to ‘snuggle up’, vintage lawn games and an EPIC, detailed cake {made by their extremely talented Photographers!}

Everyone partied hard under the sparkling disco ball late into the evening, until the newly Wed’s retired to their beautiful Bell Tent.

So after an amazing and memorable day, what did Mr and Mrs Appleby have to say about Peaktipis:

“We saw Tipis early on in our wedding planning, we instantly loved them and knew they were completely perfect for us. We’d almost given up on the idea as we couldn’t find any local companies when we found Matthew and Duncan and their Peaktipis! Right from the first email to the tipis coming down after the wedding, the service was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and we felt reassured the whole way through. We never worried about anything to do with the Tipis which is always a big plus for a stressed out DIY bride! I have no doubt that the tipis were a huge part of what made our wedding so wonderful and we only hope one day we will have an excuse to use Peaktipis again for a special celebration!”

As if this wasn’t enough already, the fab HBA Photography also created this heart-warming stop-motion video to a cheerful and happy soundtrack that can’t help but make you smile. All in all a truly inspirational Tipi extravaganza that we loved being a part of.
