So who are Sami Tipi…?
Sami Tipi are a Midlands based tipi hire company serving the Midlands and surrounding areas. Inspired by the Sami People of Lapland, their tipis & kata tents make for an outdoor celebration whatever the weather and provide a breathtaking alternative to a conventional marquee.
The tipis are naturally stunning with their rustic wooden poles, which come to life at night with fairy lights, transforming the space into something very magical.
The tipis lend themselves to style as much or as little as you please, popular styling items are pom poms, paper lanterns and bunting!

When the bride-to-be is an interior designer, you know that her wedding is going to be super stylish… Well Ria and David’s wedding certainly didn’t disappoint and we were delighted to see they hosted their wedding reception at the gorgeous Swanton Morley House & Gardens last September.
If you’ve not yet met this wedding venue the you simply must take a look; Swanton Morley House is located in the heart of the Norfolk countryside and the venue itself is set within 10 acres of beautiful gardens, woodland and meadow.
Ria and David chose Jason Mark Harris Wedding Photography to capture their special day and we’re so pleased to spot some our fave suppliers including The Little Lending Co. and Hélène Millot amongst the talented team.
Notes from the Venue
Ria started her day with her bridal party at the very chic St Giles Boutique Bed & Breakfast in Norwich and we absolutely love the image showing the moment Ria’s Dad first saw his daughter in her elegant lace wedding gown.
Ria and David’s wedding ceremony was held at St Margaret’s Church in Old Catton, Norwich and whilst the skies were cloudy everybody was delighted that the rain held off so that the guests could still enjoy some confetti throwing at the end of the service.
The rain did eventually start upon David and Ria’s arrival at Swanton Morley House & Gardens but this did not deter them from getting some lovely shots on our tree lined drive and in the woodland whilst guests enjoyed drinks and canapés

Could this feature image be any more romantic…? I think not.
This is Jasmine & Will and they celebrated their wedding day and the utterly epic The Green in Cornwall. A versatile, rustic blank canvas of a venue it also offers the most magical outdoor wedding ceremonies under their gorgeous arbour.
I’m completely in awe of this couple’s handy work! If their wood slice welcome signs and pallet tableplans have you reaching for your Woodwork 101 Guide then I don’t blame you.
Notes from The Wedding Venue
We just love these stunning photos of Jasmine and Will’s romantic English wedding at our venue, The Green Cornwall. The feel of the day was understated, elegant, natural and romantic with a Boho edge and they celebrated with 60 of their friends and family.

I don’t think many people would describe me as ‘outdoorsy’. Sure, I like a little alfresco lunch in the summertime, a long dog walk to my fave coffee shop and I did seek out a walled garden wedding venue just to have that outside element to my big day. But ‘outdoorsy’ – no.
So, it was quite the surprise when I found peace in a beautiful woodland just an hour or so down the M25.
GreenAcres Woodland Weddings is a wedding venue with a difference; these ancient woodlands are a place where you can truly celebrate life’s journey. I mean the full cycle people and all the emotions that are entangled in these momentous events that we all experience – new life, the joining of two loved ones and ultimately that time when we must bid farewell.
GreenAcres is the place where all of this and more can be celebrated.

Coombe Trenchard, cradled within Dartmoor’s epic landscapes, is a tranquil venue with Art Nouveau charm and stunning features. There’s a stream, sweeping lawns, an Italian terrace where marquees can be sighted with views from the Italian columns across to Brent Tor and now, a newly refurbished snug.
We love this venue and we also love the ladies at Blue Fizz Events who were the masterminds behind the styling for this piece. Whilst we’re in the midst of Christmas, fairylights and mulled wine why not take a refreshing step into Spring with this garden inspired styled shoot captured by McKenzie Brown.
Notes from Blue Fizz
The focus of this shoot is on the beautifully refurbished coach house at Coome Trenchard which offers a bar area, dance floor and snug area complete with sofas, easy chairs and an entrance area with fire pits on either side. This venue is versatile and breathtaking and our theme too inspiration from its gardens which are open to the public during the week. I wanted a focus on the flora and green-on-green that an English country garden brings with a nod to the modern for our forward thinking couples!
I imagined an informal yet decadent banquet on the lawn with rustic furniture, delicate vintage crockery and vintage champagne saucers all supplied by Combe Trenchard, complete with edible floating flowers from The Flower Mill in the champagne! I created handmade napkins from a vintage fabric and used blades of greenery as the napkin rings alongside some of our Blue Fizz Events hire items, our abundance of flowers and greenery were supplied by The Flower Mill who brought together the show stopping displays, head piece and a riot of fresh colours throughout.
