Tipi Wedding Videography | Yorkshire
Wedding videography at unique Tipi weddings in forests
After returning from my gap year I wondered what I was going to do as a job.
I’d always been interested in cameras and videography/photography, so I thought why not give it a go as a career. It was here when I decided to set up Rayne Drop Weddings and start offering my services to capture memories for Brides and Grooms across England.
I came across a post on Facebook, from a lady called Sara, who was looking for someone to film her unique wedding. I jumped at the opportunity and headed down to Hereford on my first ever wedding shoot.
Arriving at the ‘venue’ was us driving down a farmer track for a solid 15 minutes, and then coming to a slight opening with a small car park. We parked up and walked through the forest, following the sound of laughter and the smell of good food!
All the wedding guests had stayed the night before in these amazing Tipi tents – it was definitely more glamping than camping!
Bridal preparation took part in the bridal Tipi, with Sara’s lovely bridesmaids. EVERYTHING screamed laid back and chilled out, from the wedding dress, to the flowers, to the groomsman’s suits. It was all very earthy colour-tones and very fitting to the forest surrounding. I think the modern-day term is a ‘humanistic wedding’.
The ceremony took place in a dense part of the forest, which offered dramatic light and interesting aspects for filming. To further add to the DIY feel of the day, Sara’s brother delivered the entire ceremony, adding a light hearted twist to the celebration.
After the ceremony it was time to EAT! A huge hog roast buffet kept everyone well fed and by this point the beer was very much flowing. The kids, (and adult kids) were entertained by the various games that were scattered around the fields.
At this point we thought it would be a great opportunity to capture some drone footage of the wedding venue. We filmed a group shot of the entire wedding party, along with some establishing shots of the area and wedding Tipis.
After the speeches it was time to boogie, and all I can say is there was some questionable ‘dad dancing’ going on HAHA! After the first dance we got a lovely closing shot of Matt and Sara as the new Mr and Mrs. Then it was time for the long drive home. What a day! And what a way to start off in this amazing industry and jounrey.
Choosing the right wedding Tipi supplier
I have worked closely with BAR Events UK over the past few years. They are a Leeds based, Tipi and mobile bar company who go ABOVE AND BEYOND to source everything you need for your big day. The team is run by Dan and Laura – if you’re thinking about having Tipi’s at your wedding get in touch with them, you won’t regret it.
And that’s another blog done and dusted! Take care,
