We met Clair and Sean back in April last year at The Field Kitchen to chat more about their tipi wedding and have a look around their unique venue. They were so lovely and it led us to look forward to their big day even more! They told us things hadn’t worked out with their original venue. now that we’ve filmed their delightful wedding day, we think that was very much a blessing in disguise 🙂

It’s so important for you to be happy with the whole experience leading up to your day. It means you can be relaxed and have all the fun when the day finally arrives!

Clair and her bride squad glammed up at her and Sean’s home, with a delicious afternoon tea that her sister had organised with Kelly’s Vintage Tea based in Melksham. We sampled a little taster, and can confirm; the yummiest!

Clair opened a gorgeous Tiffany’s bracelet and sweet handwritten card from Sean. We headed over to catch the guys finishing up, and Sean’s reaction when he opened his own gift…

Clair styled her own wedding – oh the talent! Check out her work at Violet and Ivy

After about a million boxes – packaging these days! – Sean unwrapped a sophisticated new watch, shock and delight on his face. We love seeing our couples’ reactions to perfectly chosen presents! Buttonholes pinned in place, Siobhan Amy Photography and I captured some moments outside. Then Sean and his best man hopped into a friend’s Jaguar, and with a rev they were off to the church.

Back at the couple’s home, the glamour squad finished up and gorgeous bouquets waited by the door, including cute ribbon adorned wands for Clair’s flower girls. The little one especially loved hers!

The bridesmaids slipped into their rose gold sequin dresses and helped Clair with her stunning blush layered lace gown and dreamy veil.

At the church, Sean waited for his soon-to-be wife at the top of the aisle, adorned so beautifully with flowers.

I captured a lovely little moment outside the church doors as Clair arrived with her bridal party; she and her dad cracked up before going in. She was clearly so excited to see Sean, get married and celebrate with everyone! It’s moments like these where I have a silly grin on my face. Happiness is contagious in this business!

After a lovely ceremony, the church erupted with cheers and applause at the first kiss! As everyone lined up on the edges of the path outside for the confetti line, Clair and Sean dashed to the other side of the church grounds. They were keen to re-enact a photo that Clair’s parents have of their own wedding, under the archway. We loved that!

Onwards to The Field Kitchen, where they have the perfect layout for a relaxed wedding with a tipi. Pimms and beers kept everyone cool, and scrumptious little appetisers meandered in the crowd. Everyone soaked up the sunshine, and there was plenty of space to do so.

A fabulous wedding tipi was set up near the reception room, with the delicious cake and grazing table crafted by Clair’s friend Stacey; Stacey’s Kitchen. It even had a cocktail bar with two specialty cocktails chosen by the couple: espresso martinis and strawberry daiquiris. Yum!

After speeches, guests went outside to enjoy the delicious desserts, and Clair and Sean had their first dance in the tipi. A surprise confetti cannon went off, and everyone joined the couple and danced to the jams of Interlight. We got some fantastic footage on the dancefloor! Grandparents were still throwing shapes until the sparkler exit at 11pm! 👏👏👏

Congratulations to Clair and Sean, and thank you for choosing Siobhan and I to photograph and film your special day! ‘Twas a fabulous time.
