Hey everyone, today marks the last day of January 2014 and Kiwi Tipi has been apart of some very special weddings this month. As we receive feedback and photos we will endeavour to share them with you all as soon as possible!
Lets start with Catherine & Joshua, who said their “I do’s” in our first wedding of 2014 on January 10th.
Although these two had already had everything for their wedding booked 18 months in advance, when Catherine found out about our tipis she knew she just had to have one as a part of her day. So we scouted out her reception venue (Lincoln Events Center) and got permission to put up a single tipi outside the hall to be used as a sun shelter for the breads n’ dip starter buffet and outdoor games (giant and original jenga, patonk, croquet and noughts v. crosses).
Due to the very last minute entry of the tipi into the wedding, the decorations were kept very simple with just two 20m blue LED fairy light strings dominating the roof space.
Catherine & Joshua also utilised our natural wooden bench seats and some old wooden outdoor furniture Catherine’s dad scored from Trade Me to compliment the tipi in its outdoor setting.
As the night closed in the tipi became the center stage in the couples final photos for the evening. The twinkling blue fairy lights and the setting sun glowing through the canvas provided the couple (and happy photographer) with a magical backdrop for this stunning photo by Heather Ellis Photography.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Barker, we loved being able to be a part of your big day.
“Enjoy every moment. The good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, the inspiring, the not-so-glamorous moments, and thank God through it all.” – Meghan Matt
We wish you all the best for your lives together, from the Kiwi Tipi team
Hey Hayden, thank you so much for your help in our last minute desire to have one of your amazing tipis at our wedding. We had heaps of great compliments on it, as it was like nothing anyone had seen before. It created quite the buzz and will be a feature talking point in people’s memories for years to come. It was fantastic to be able to create another (completely unique) space the guests could go, hang out, eat and play a few games in, and not feel cramped and confined into the hall. All the best – Catherine & Joshua.
