Our next affair comes from an adorable couple across the pond. They were sent to us from the oh-so-talented photographer, Rosie Parsons. The bride and groom celebrated with family and friends in a doily and lace clad TEE PEE in the yard of the groom’s uncle. How romantic is that? This wedding and all the dainty details makes my heart go pitter patter.

From the bride. It’s very weird – but I didn’t actually think about a certain theme – or feel, I just wanted something very individual to Jon and I. I knew I wanted something pretty, relaxed, happy – and not too stiff or contrived – but for it to have a bit of personality!

There was no set theme or colour, it was very organic. I bought the bridesmaid dresses early on and that kind of set a tone for the colours, which were pale neutral pastels. I kept all of the decoration in the teepees to white, as I knew my flowers were going to be the main colours inside.

    I literally need to know where those tents are from. I found their site (or one similiar) about a year back and wrote down the address, subsequently lost it, and now have struggled to find it again. They’re the only type I want so please please would someone tell me who she used?
    Ta!

  • Where to start on this… it’s just gorgeous!! So charming!

    @Hannah– I have done lots of research on these “Giant-Hat Teepees” for my own wedding in 2011. I’ve emailed several companies, and unfortunately, if your wedding isn’t going to be held in the UK, you’re out of luck. Of course if you want to fly one out to the States and fly out the staff to set it up, that’s potentially viable… but a little ridiculous cost-wise. I considered it! :( Here are the three that I’m aware of:
    papakata.co.uk
    stunningtents.co.uk
    beautifulworldtents.co.uk

    I haven’t found any vendors located in the US who offer something similar. The closest I’ve found is a woman who rents giant Teepees in British Columbia for camping– she said she’d be willing to drive out 2 giant teepees to the East Coast for $6000, but then again, they’re not the same and we’d have to figure out ourselves how to adapt them for a wedding reception.

    On the same note, I haven’t been able to find anyone on the East Coast who does rentals of vintage plates/ cutlery/ teacups, etc. There is only one that I know of in the States– she’s located in LA (“Found” vintage rentals) and also rents out fabulous furniture for events. Again, not very cost-effective for an East coast wedding.

    If ANYONE finds a company Stateside who rents out teepees and vintage crockery similar to what is featured in this post, please do share! :)
