A Bohemian Tipi Wedding – Chloe & Stephen

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you a beautiful bohemian style tipi wedding from London wedding photographer Babb Photo. Chloe and Stephen met in their local village pub over tequila whilst listening to Oasis.

I live and work in China so Stephen actually proposed to me over Skype! We have been together for 11 and a half years and were engaged for 18 months of that.

Stephen is a keen wakeboarder and so knew the location of our wedding well. He went to the lake one day and spotted there was a wedding happening at Chittering Farm. He called me to come and have a look, so I did, and we both fell in love with the place. It was perfect for the informal, festival style wedding that we wanted to achieve.

Our ceremony was incredibly special as it was lead by my best friend Kat, who was also chief bridesmaid. We were officially married the day before in the registry office. We had 3 readings and 4 blessings. I chose the readings based on the fact that I didn’t want anything too soppy, sexist or unrelatable! The readings were a snippet form a quote by Einstein on relativity and love. A poem by Roy Croft, called I Love you, and another poem by Rainer Maria Rilke. Our vows were the traditional style vows as we didn’t want to make the ceremony too out there!

One of my very good friends, Rosie Bailey, has always had a keen eye for anything to do with flowers and gardening. She recently set up her own business called Wild Florals. After seeing posts of her flower arranging, I knew she would be the best person for the job. I wanted to create a very natural feel, that echoed the environment and she did that beautifully.

The photography was simply amazing. The main reason I chose Babb Photo was based upon the fact that on the website, Laura mentioned that she loves tattoos, glitter and Dr Martens, that sold it to me! I also spent time looking through her gallery and loved the journalistic style photos she was able to create. She made us both feel so comfortable, especially as we are not a slushy couple and were worried about the photos of just us. Laura made us feel at ease and made us laugh. We couldn’t be happier with our choice!

A Camp Katur Festival Wedding – Grace & Danny

Camp Katur festival Papakata Tipi Wedding by Toast Photography

Grace and Danny’s wedding took place at the awesome Camp Katur – The ultimate festival glamping site, full of Tipis in Yorkshire. The lovely Shelly of Toast Of Leeds sent this over and I fell in love with it straight away!

We met at a house party when I was 16, we had never met and Danny stole my seat when I went to the toilet and when I came back we pretended to everyone that we had known each other for years and I sat on his knee – we had  a cheeky kiss upstairs whilst his best friend hid in the wardrobe… and he gave me a fiver for my taxi home – good first impression!! After that night we didn’t see each other for a couple of months and then kept bumping into each other at the pub, we were both seeing other people at the time so it was a bit awkward but we eventually started texting. Then on Valentine’s day (cringe) I had just become officially single and was sat in the loo of the local pub pissed and feeling sorry for myself and rang him asking whether he was going to come and see me… he played it cool and said he was at a house party so probably wouldn’t make it so I drowned my sorrows with a few more diesels at the bar, 20 minutes later he walked in and asked me if I was coming to his – so I did!
