Intimate Tipi Garden Wedding Lancashire
I never imagined I’d experience life through a pandemic, let alone photograph a wedding in the middle of it. Since the world halted in March 2020, so did the wedding industry. It’s been one hellish ride for my couples and the wedding industry, not knowing what to expect and whether their day could go ahead. Alice & Sean were amongst those couples who were forced to cancel and postpone their wedding in the summer.
Intimate wedding in Lancashire
When England was given the green light to proceed with ceremonies of up to 30 people, Alice and Sean got in touch and asked if I could be part of their mini wedding in July. There was lots of last minute planning but they were so desperate to get married, even if it meant having a bigger celebration next year. They planned an intimate tipi garden wedding with some of their closest family members and a ceremony at their local church. It sounded perfect!

Their day started with the girls and Alice excitedly getting ready. A gorgeous mini tipi was set up in their garden with tables and sheepskin rugs. There were so many homemade touches, from the blankets to polaroid cameras and vases full of flowers that Alice’s mum had beautifully arranged. Alice grew up on a farm with sheep and horses and Sean is a diary farmer so it was only right that these two exited the church through an arch of pitch folks! 😀
The couple and their guests sat in the sun drinking Pims, with an afternoon of garden games including beer pong and giant jenga.
I loved everything about their intimate wedding at home including a little visit to their sheep during photos.
