A Whimsical Wedding in the Woods

There is so much to love about this styled shoot by Big Chief Tipis & their tribe of talented suppliers. If you’re currently coveting a possible tipi wedding day then this really is all the inspiration you need – You’ll be booking that canvas before you’ve even got to the bottom of this blog!

Hayley Harthern of Big Chief Tipis is here to guide us through their creativity…

Notes from Big Chief Tipis


Since we launched Big Chief Tipis we’ve had the pleasure to work with some incredible local talent in the North West who all have a unique creative flair. We wanted to bring our “tribe” together to create a dream wedding scenario, set within the woods in our tipis at Turton Tower in Lancashire. We envisioned a spring summer vibe with the use of lots of natural flowers, supplied by Petal & Twig, which were creatively brought together with the use of props, crockery, cutlery and decoration from the talented Nina Marika.

The Flower Fairies of Askham Hall

Oh we have a treat for you today…

Hot off the back of my own styled shoot this week, I can’t tell you how much I love this creative process – from styling them to being inspired by fellow industry folks! Oh and this gorgeous styled shoot captured by Tiree Dawson Photography is a knock out!

Styled by Nina Marika at the ethereal Askham Hall, Megan from Typical Type is here with her account of the day…

This beautiful, carefully curated, Flower Fairy inspired shoot is the third shoot Tiree Dawson Photography and I have organised together – and so far one of our favourites. Being creative little bunnies, Tiree and I always have a little pot of ideas bubbling away and much as we try to contain them sometimes one just erupts and we just have to do something!

This fabulous shoot came about after Tiree had shot a couple of weddings at Askham Hall and decided it was just too gorgeous not to go back to. We thought about various themes, but in the end stumbled upon ‘Flower Fairies’ as a starting point. The ethereal grounds at Askham Hall are beautiful, and although spring had barely sprung, the place was magical.
