Back Garden Tipi Kent Wedding Photography
Maddie and Will got married in a beautiful tipi at Will’s parents house, which is a beautiful old house with a wonderful garden overlooking the Kent Downs. They had their ceremony in the back garden, which was the perfect setting. They chose Will’s parent’s house, because it meant they could prioritise food, family and friends without any restrictions and they could totally personalise it. It was a beautiful, rustic back garden tipi wedding, which I really enjoyed being a part of. I love a good back garden tipi wedding!
The wedding itself was a humanist ceremony under an amazing flower arch. During the ceremony they read their own vows and it was very emotional. I loved capturing all the happy faces. The most fun part of the day was the speeches, they were absolutely hilarious! The best men in particular gave a great speech, with a rendition of “the taming of the Moen”. Plus the mother of the bride gave a great performance speech!
Maddie wore an incredible custom made dress, it was so unique and beautiful, and Will wore a dapper Gieves and Hawkes suit and they looked so perfect.
