Big Chief Tipis Best Bits At TNWS

We met some amazing suppliers at The National Wedding Show Manchester and we wanted to share our favourites with you!


From our stand we could see some amazing florists but one caught our eye in particular! We couldn’t imagine anything better than some Firenza floral arrangements in our tipis and up our tipi poles. Firenza are a luxury wedding florist who specialise in scented flowers and herbs, they provide this service across Lancashire, Cheshire, Yorkshire and further afield if required.

Firenza is run and owned by Fiona Pickles who opened up the business and whose reputation has grown and grown and now her work speaks for itself. Fiona has won several Wedding Industry Awards and has also create flowers for a private luncheon for Her Majesty The Queen and Prince Philip.





Melissa Beattie

When walking around the Show we came across a very talented photographer called Melissa Beattie. Melissa is a fine art wedding and lifestyle photographer who captures natural intention, expressions of love and works hard to tell your story and preserve your most treasured memories. Melissa does some amazing wedding photography and we were so impressed with her work that we have invited her to showcase at our Wedding Open Weekend. Melissa will be there showing off her work and she will also be taking part in a photoshoot with Jean Jackson Couture at Delamere Manor for our Open Weekend.

Melissa is based in the North West but loves to travel far and wide so no wedding destination is too far for her. She also loves shooting interesting weddings so there are no details too big or too!

Perfect for tipi weddings and we cannot wait to work with her!

Love Invited was founded by Amanda Williams, she has spent over a decade in design and creates beautiful wedding invitations and complimentary stationery. Love Invited make sure that your invites are brimming with joy, personality and individuality. We loved the different styles and particularly loved the timelines for the big day. We particularly loved the Country Bunting stationary, they are the perfect match for our tipis.





Boston Shakers

We couldn’t have loved a stand more when we strolled past the Boston Shakers. Boston Shakers are a portable cocktail bar who are located in Cheshire, the company was formed in 2013 by three experienced bartenders who have over 11 years of experience between them.

Boston Shakers offer a range of services which as perfect for indoor or outdoor weddings or parties. Their bar is easily transportable and can be up in 10 minutes, this paired with speed of service, experience and charm they offer the perfect package.
