A Garden Tipi Wedding at Cannon Hall - Ellie & Ben

Updated: Jul 18, 2019

I'm certainly a fan of the rustic tipi wedding vibe, so when Ellie & Ben got in touch to request some décor and games for their tipi wedding at Cannon Hall in May this year, we were beyond excited.

For anyone not familiar with Cannon Hall, it is a stunning Georgian country house and museum situated in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. For a number of years Cannon Hall has hosted weddings within the Georgian house, but more recently have opened up to outdoor weddings and tipis, making the most of the stunning views and countryside the estate has to offer. The team at Garden Weddings Tipi Hire coordinated the wedding for Ellie & Ben, and the end result was gorgeous.

Ellie & Ben decorated the tipi themselves, with lots of rustic décor vibes and help from their friends and family. Flowers From The Garden supplied some gorgeous bouquets, table flowers and hanging installations, in blue, purple and white hues. The flowers had that 'scooped from a wild meadow' vibe which really complimented the décor and styling Ellie and Ben wanted to achieve. Rustic Wedding Box provided a few statement pieces, such as apple crates, vintage paint ladders and some galvanised buckets and flower pots.

Ellie also asked us to create an order of service board, and a table plan for her guests, to complement her existing invitations and stationery design. The hand painted watercolour design was mounted on kraft card and nailed to our white wash wooden boards, helping guests find their seats on arrival at the tipi.

The garden games went down a treat with the guests. There was plenty of hoola hooping and duck hooking, entertaining guests during the drinks reception and into the early evening. There were six vintage games for the guests to play: Tin Can Alley, Ring Toss, Hook a Duck, Wooden Skittles, Hoola Hoops and Buckets. The bride & groom also set up their own beer pong table right next to the fire pit and Off Piste gelato station.

Ellie and Ben's special day was captured by the super talented Robert Peet Photography, a documentary wedding photographer based in Manchester.
