A summer Tipi wedding in the heart of the Oxfordshire Countryside
We are going back July 2018 and the long hot summer for this blog, featuring the lovely Oxfordshire barn and tipi wedding of Mel and Ken.
Although they are based in the London area, the couple chose Dovecote Events for its central location. Based in Adderbury, near Banbury, Dovecote Events is a family business, specialising in wedding and events. Dovecote Barn, where Mel and Ken’s ceremony took place, is part of Bo Peep Farm. It is a listed 18th century barn that has been tastefully restored. Dovecote also can accommodate events in marquees and also their Nordic style tipi, which is where Mel and Ken had their reception. As Oxfordshire wedding photographers its a venue we know well, and recommend highly.
For this lovely Oxfordshire barn wedding, Sam went along to a nearby hotel for Mel’s bridal preparation, whilst I went straight to Dovecote Barn, to be with Ken and the guests as they started to arrive. After a lovely wedding ceremony in the barn, and a drinks reception in the lovely courtyard, the wedding party made the short walk to an adjacent field to the tipi. Mel and Ken had arranged for a number of games to be set up in the field around the Tipi, which were used to good effect by their guests.
After dinner, and some humorous speeches (including two best men and a slide show all about Ken!) the wedding guests continued to enjoy the warm summer evening outside the tipi. Mel and Ken lead the evening dancing with a fantastic rehearsed routine, to good tunes provided by Disco Shed . As usual, we stayed well into the evening to photograph the partying and dancing, and also a sparkler run by the bride and groom. Although we are documentary wedding photographers , we do set up two lines for sparklers and confetti, to get the maximum effect, as you can see from the photos below.
We loved photographing this Dovecote Barn and tipi wedding, thanks to Mel and Ken for having us as their wedding photographers.
Below is a selection of their photos, we hope you enjoy looking at them!
