How to make a tipi festival style wedding venue?

In this episode we talk about how we created our wedding back in May 2018, which suppliers we selected and what we learned.

Through the Podcast video you see images by Zoe Alexandra see her website here:

Tracy and I liked the idea of a festival style wedding for our day after filming a tipi wedding a few years ago.  It was amazing to see a wedding venue so different and personal to the couple. It was their style, their day and  how!

So we decided on a tipi reception and a marque for the ceremony at a local farm.

Watch and listen into our first ever podcast and get some inspiration to your DIY wedding.
