Faye and James’ beautiful tipi wedding with photography by Claire Penn


Faye and James married on 26th May this year – one of the wettest Saturdays of the Spring and Summer. But our gorgeous tipis kept them dry and warm and they had the most amazing of days. Check out the wonderful blog by Claire Penn their photographer to see what an amazing day they had:

Rain?  Just a little.  Freaky sunny blue sky spells?  Yup.  Then dark and more torrential rain?  Indeed.  It was the freakiest weather I’ve ever had on a wedding day and it was the subject of much discussion in the morning lead-up!  James’ mum had the live forecast open and it said around 4pm when they would be coming out of church, the rain would have passed.  It not only passed but as they emerged from the church there were glorious blue skies above and sunshine.  It was perfect.  Sure the rain came back but mostly when everyone was eating afternoon tea in the cosy tipi!

Faye & James, thank you for choosing me to capture your day.  It was crazy and hectic but I know you both had the best day and your friends and family too – certainly if the dancefloor was anything to go by when I left!  I hope you like these previews and have a wonderful honeymoon.  xxxx
