Tipi wedding at The Heath House
A Tipi wedding at The Heath House inspired shoot
A Tipi Wedding at The Heath House – this shoot combines all our favourite wedding related things & people so it was a bit of a fairy tale day for us. It took place at The Heath House in Tean in Staffordshire – they have been doing weddings for a while now but have just added tipi weddings to their offerings and of course who better to choose than the brilliant Kim, Matt & Duncan from Peak Tipis in Ashbourne. Anyway the brief was just to show off the lovely house, the new tipi in the walled gardens, the newly refurbished Dutch Barn and the orangery which can be used for the wedding ceremony.
The wedding supplier Dream Team!
We were lucky to work with lots of great people, Hannah from Bake in Ashbourne provided the cakes (OMG I could have eaten them all!!), Nadia from Nadia Di Tullio provided the stunning flowers, hair pieces and table decorations, dresses from Lori G, amazing hair and makeup by Claire Lowe and so many more!
On the day
While our bride for the day, Georgia had her makeup done, we spent some time with the very cool looking Jack in the house making the most of the gorgeous rooms and the lovely light flooding in through the huge windows. Then as soon as Georgia was ready she joined in too for lots of nice and darkly lit, romantic shots. As the shoot was being filmed, we had a celebrant join us for a ceremony in the Orangery which has been recently refurbished to use for ceremonies – what a building, exposed brickwork, covered in plants and so lovely and light!! Then onto the main event – the tipis in the Walled Garden; the cakes, the stationery, the flowers…. loved it all!! And finally The Dutch Barn – LOVE this building. We even managed to use one of the disused sheds for a couple of very cool dark and smokey photos (please forgive us Sophie for using this one – I couldn’t resist when I saw the open door !!) We love things like that – everything doesn’t always have to be manicured and pretty, life isn’t always pretty – sometimes it’s just amazing to stand a couple, perfectly in love, inside somewhere most people would never think of using on a wedding day, or any other day and see what they do, and photograph just that. Them being themselves.
It’s shoots like this that we live for – Being given an amazing house and Tipi to use all day long, and have them decorated by some of the most talented people in the industry is awesome – many thanks to everyone involved; Kim at Peak Tipis and Nadia from Nadia Di Tullio Flowers for all their hard work in organising a gorgeously styled day and of course to the team at The Heath House!!
Here are a few of our favourites from the day!
