Cornish Tipi Weddings - Uniquely Different
If you're planning one of the most important days of your life and feel you want something more than the usual church, registry office or overblown hotel then inspiration can be hard to find. We're the very closest you can get to an outside wedding in the UK. If you're dreaming of a woodland wedding, green wedding, wedding by water or perhaps a camping wedding then you've come to the right place. Our wood, willow and canvas Pavilion isn't on a manicured lawn but really outdoors; by a clear brook & under a canopy of oak and ash. Declaring your love in front of family and friends is big stuff; whether you want old fashioned or modern, we can make it natural or funky, eco-chic or country.
You might be drawn to a vision of a fairy glade; where you exchange your vows by woodland and stream before musicians on fiddle and flute play you past banks of foxglove and wild rose. Children with posies skip alongside as you walk hand in hand to a tented space filled with food and flowers. Later candles in paper lanterns and tiny lights shine softly across the music and dancing - long after little ones are tucked up in their tipis & adult guests are seated round our big firepit outside the main marquee.
You could be stirred by the rise of the eco-wedding; thinking green and sustainably from the beginning, you want to arrange ceremony and reception close to one another to reduce miles travelled, low impact accommodation for everyone to stay in, local suppliers of seasonal food and drink, in fact everything as low carbon and earth friendly as it can be.
Or go bold Bollywood; styled in hot pinks, saffron and red, with low seating and glittering saris, or classic English country house; afternoon tea served on vintage china under swags of retro bunting. Maybe use the pure waters of our lake to float coloured night lights in your own private Festival of Light or row romantically into the sunset after your ceremony. Choose to set dress it all for glamour or lazy days. Our beautiful valley and woods are perfect for mad steampunk adventures or just simple bbq's and woodland picnics - celebrations as easy or detailed as you please. Whatever your dreams and style we can help make it the day you want it to be.
