Tipi Wedding Photography

Emily & Jordan’s Tipi wedding photography from Sycamore Farm Barns in Derbyshire

Unique Derbyshire Wedding Venue

Emily & Jordan commissioned me for their tipi wedding photography at the beginning of 2016. I couldn’t wait to photograph this wedding – so, so unique. Emily & Jordan’s big day was to be held at Sycamore Farm Barns, just outside Matlock in Derbyshire. The farm has several barns, which are converted and inter-connect internally if required. Emily’s good friend Sarah Morton, who is a professional Makeup Artist (and bridesmaid!) was on hair and makeup duties.

Unique Wedding Tipi and Events Catering

The whole wedding was based upon the briliant services of All About Me, based in Chester. Together with a lot of ‘hand made’ touches to the styling, by Emily and her ‘crew’, the day was looking stunning. Organic, stylish and with that village feel, Emily and Jordan’s wedding was going to be something rather speacial. With a range of hand made cocktails, meat platters and a HUGE Paella, plus a collection of outdoor activities such as cricket, Jenga and the infamous Coconut Shy where I nearly lost my favourite 24mm as I ran for safety behind the net. Kids….dontcha just love ’em! 🙂

After ten miutes shooting in the late afternoon sun, it was time for the evening party to commence…Emily had a surprise up her sleeve! Local band The Rumour Mill who Emily knows well, had been booked to play for the evening. Emily also jumped up on stage and sang three or four numbers with them as a treat. Boy, the girl can sing! Well done lass…

Sadly I had to leave at sunset, because I had to travel to another wedding, so missed out on the low light photography. Ah well, I think we captured enough here though…
