We were thrilled when PapaKåta landed this gorgeous real wedding in our inbox. Although arguably most famous for their beautiful white sail-cloth tents, PapaKåta can also provide lovely traditional tipis, and we adore them!
Choosing a Marquee
With plenty of marquee options out there, it can be hard to choose the right one for you. If you're looking for a relaxed, home-from-home, day filled with your own personal touches we cannot recommend a tipi enough! Instantly oozing festival vibes, a tipi wedding feels like it's own little party village. Adorned with festoon lighting and DIY touches, your guests are bound to be oo-ing and aah-ing as soon as they set foot in your venue.
Decorating your Tipi Venue
The tipi itself does oh-so much of the talking. With impressive wooden beams and twinkling fairy lights, your tipi is bound to charm your friends and family effortlessly. Leanne & Michael chose Papakata's rustic wooden tables and stylish cross-back chairs to set a relaxed and social dining ambience to their wedding breakfast.
With a little boho influence throughout, the tipi was filled with macrame details, rustic wooden barrels and light up love letters. On the tables, Yorkshire Dales Flower Company provided the most delicate floral in ceramic urns, complimented by dark red runners with glittering gold details.
A Unique Naked Cake
A formal, royal icing-topped, perfectly white cake would not have sang with the venue like this beauty. Zara Cakes created this semi-naked delight, with bronze macarons, decadent chocolate spheres and a stylish drip effect! You have to check out her website, the little cupcake is just darling.
A Luxurious Colour Scheme
Not only did sumptuous reds, rich terracotta and deep browns appear throughout the tipi and stunning wedding cake, Leanne's outfit worked in perfect harmony. Her statement jacket added a fun touch to a formal wedding dress, and we're digging it!
Arrival Refreshments to Remember
Who said canapés were the only arrival snack? Michael & Leanne opted for ice cream alongside refreshing cocktails, before delving into a delicious wedding breakfast from Eat Me Drink Me. Social dining lends itself so well to a tipi setting, giving off a communal sentiment. Oh, and can we forget... the doughnut wall!?
