Lucy and Kevin's Handmade Rustic Tipi Wedding.....


Afternoon Lovely Peeps,

I hope you all had a good weekend and treated your Mums to a fabulous Mother’s Day. Mine was unfortunately spent in bed as I am still recovering from the flu but I did manage to squeeze in a few cuddles with my wonderful baby daughter and had a lovely meal cooked by the other half so all in all it was still a lovely day.

We have an absolutely beautiful wedding to share with you today. Captured by Festival Brides favourite Laura Babb and held on a gorgeous Lavender Farm in Hertfordshire, Lucy and Kevin’s handmade rustic tipi wedding is just all things wedding pretty.

Lucy looked stunning in her art deco beaded Eliza Jane Howell wedding dress which looks so dreamy amongst the sea of purple lavender. We are also in love with her gold bridesmaid dresses, handmade wedding bouquet (yes – Lucy did her own bouquet and it is amazing) and Indian colour palette.

Lucy tells us all about it…..

I wanted to have an unstructured dress, cut on the bias with flowers in my hair. And then the first dress I saw was an art deco inspired dress, I tried it on and fell in love. The way it hung and the heavy beading from top to toe made me feel so glamorous it was instant love. I had a head piece made using original art deco dress clips and added some fun with Vivienne Westwood Lips shoes. My hair was in waves created from pin curls. My make-up artist made me feel stunning. A natural look with a heavier eye and coral lips.

I wanted the bridesmaids to have fun dresses. I personally love sequins and I knew they all did too! The dresses were perfect and they looked beautiful. Flower girl also wore a gold Monsoon dress. The groomsmen all wore a darker shade of blue to complement the groom. All wore matching Reiss ties and button holes.

The church was our local church and one that I got christened in, it’s a beautiful church. The Venue is an absolutely stunning location near where we live. Hitchin Lavender Farm has 12 acres of rolling lavender hills. It is a really tranquil place and the deep purple colour is truly striking.

The ceremony was full of nerves and the ice broke as soon as we saw each other and smiled. One of our bridesmaids did a beautiful reading and we left church to bells ringing and dried petal confetti in cones.

I love colour and especially jewelled colours, we spent quite a lot of time in India, where you will never have a nude colour palette. It completely inspired us and I hope to have used this inspiration in dressing our venue.

It took us two years to collect all of the vases and candlesticks from every charity shop around. I went on a DIY wedding floristry course as I really wanted to learn a new skill and create the flowers myself. My clever Mum and Sister helped immensely. We went to the wholesalers and purchased the flowers for the centrepieces and bouquets. It was hard work but totally worth it.

We tried to make the wedding as handmade as we could. It makes it all so much more special to know how many hours were spent on everything. I created 26 meters of tassel bunting from chiffon material. My mother made liberty print lavender bags for all the ladies. I machine sewed all the name places which took forever but I think it was worth it. The table numbers were mdf letters that I glued moss to.

We had an idea of what kind of photographer we wanted and after much searching we found Laura Babb. Her stylistic photos and creative visions were why we picked her. I have been utterly blown away by our photos we will treasure them forever.

With dry hiring a field it gave us complete freedom to have any catering we desired. On arrival guests enjoyed canapés and sit down started with a lamb confit starter. We decided on having a served BBQ for main meal with a choice of really nice meats and dishes. For desert we had ice-cream from a 1950’s ice-cream van.

In the day we had a talented friend Craig Selby do an acoustic set and in the evening we had an amazing band The In-Laws. Everyone loved them and it was like being at a gig.
