Taking inspiration from both the awe inspiring giant tipis and the beautiful grounds at Delamere Manor in Cheshire, the photoshoot for Big Chief Tipis focussed on a free-spirited theme, with bohemian brides, wild flowers and a rustic décor, which even included a magnificent tribal headdress!

Collaborating with Melissa Beattie Photography, Big Chief Tipis teamed up with a plethora of Manchester-based suppliers, celebrating the quality, beauty and creativity that the North of England can produce.

At the heart of the shoot were the giant event tipis that Big Chief Tipis hire out for weddings throughout the UK, to brides and grooms who want to celebrate their Big Day in a quirky, alternative outdoor space. Throughout the tipis were a variety of elements to impress anyone who walked through the doors, including log burners, a Moroccan-styled chill out tipi, rustic wooden tables & benches and dancefloor complete with giant lit-up DANCE letters provided by The Word Is Love.

Jean Jackson Couture, a bespoke design house and bridal studio based in Urmston and the centre of Manchester, brought with them a selection of vintage inspired gowns and accessories to adorn the models.

A selection of wild flower bouquets and table centres were provided by wedding experts Springbank Flowers – the mixture of multi-coloured jars and flowers flown over from Holland were simply stunning and worked beautifully in the woodland setting amongst the trees, the lake and tipis.

The hair and makeup was styled by power duo Vicky Millington Hair and Maxine Smith Makeup to represent a natural and relaxed-looking bride, channelling a boho-chic vibe.

The décor inside the tipi was also themed accordingly, to give the tipi a really bohemian, rustic feel, with the baby tipi providing a different look and feel with its Moroccan hues and furnishings – the perfect place to sit back and relax with your guests!
