Peaktipis Showcasing Events


Sophisticated Spring Open Weekend

A Ripe Romance

We’ve had an insanely {but fab!} busy season so far, so much so that we haven’t had chance to share with you the snaps from our spectacular sophisticated Spring Open Weekend from back in May – our seventh annual Spring showcase.

The overall look and inspiration for this years Spring Open Weekend was centered around the actual venue we hosted at and the key objective was to launch Tipi Weddings as a new offering to Brides and Grooms-to-be within the beautiful and historic 127 acre estate at the idyllic and stately Heath House in rural Staffordshire.

Sophisticated Spring Open Weekend

We were joined again under our canvases by a talented team of East Midlands Wedding supplier friends across styling, floristry, cakes, photography, videography, catering, entertainment and more. Two Giant Tipis and our Kungs chill-out Tipi were nestled behind the stunning Regency Orangery at Heath House, which is licensed for civil ceremonies overlooking the breath-taking gardens within the grounds – the perfect setting for a Tipi Wedding.

We termed the theme inside the Tipis ‘Fine Art’, which featured a rich, romantic colour pallette of deep plums and rich reds, accented with soft, dreamy hues of this years pantone colours; Rose Quartz and Serenity, as well as a subtle presence of gold to complete the elegant look we were after.

We opted for a layered tablescape abundant with lush green folliage, large succulents and succulent fruits including golden apples, plums and globe grapes – all sat on crisp white linens. To bring out the warmth and opulence, each table also featured delicate crockery and glassware, floral vases with stocks, sweet peas, rannuculas and freesias and enhancing the banquet feel, over-sized elevated gold candle vases and floating candles.

The stationery was beautifully painted with a wash of water colours in rose quartz and serenity and finished with modern and on-trend gold calligraphy.

The top table featured two stylish cream and gold thrones for the Bride and Groom place setting, along with classic white drapes and our glittering disco ball, framing the set for the afternoons musical entertainment. A magnificent giant chandelier hung centrally within the Kungs chill out tent, framed with lashings of beautiful and dreamy ribbon bunting. All of these props perfectly added to the grand, regal styling.

A beautiful ‘feature’ wagon-wheel hung proud in one of the Tipi Peaks accented with lush floral, foliage and greenery.

A banquet of rich, indulgent delights featured in the dining area of the Tipis, including mini marzipan peaches, macarons, chocolate and cherry cupcakes, a tall salted caramel ‘drip cake’ adorned with fresh figs and caramelised pecans, and a three-tiered semi-naked cake. A spectacular savory, tiered tower of artisan cheeses also stood proud, all hand-selected to create a perfectly balanced luxury cheeseboard.

Tasty treats were also aplenty from the dynamic and first class catering team.

Overall we wanted to demonstrate the versatility of our Tipis and provide wedding inspiration for those wanting to create a more refined and elegant look but within a less formal, more relaxed environment.

Enjoy the shots of lots of elegant, romantic inspiration from the super-duper Jess Rigby Photography and also expertly captured in motion by Laura Garwood too, who’s details along with all of the other fabulous suppliers can be found at the end of the blog:
