Bawdon Lodge Farm: Rachel & Alex

A tipi wedding at Bawdon Lodge Farm

tipi wedding in Leicestershire

Our clients Alex and Rachel married at St Leonard's Church in Swithland in Leicestershire and celebrated their marriage with a beautiful tipi wedding reception at Bawdon Lodge Farm in Leicestershire.


Alex and I want to say a huge huge thank you to Val for all of her help and support in the lead up and on our wedding day.

Val was an absolute superstar - providing us with lots of ideas and suggestions, whilst all the time listening to our thoughts and helping us to make them a reality. Val provided us with her Wedding Day Management service, but we felt that Val offered so much more than just help on the day - supporting us at supplier meetings in the lead up to our wedding day, as well as meeting us two weeks before to run through our entire schedule and putting our mind at ease. Val and Anna were around all of the day before our wedding helping us to style our tipi and worked so hard to help us create our vision.

On the day, Val and Anna couldn’t have been more valuable - helping with final wedding dress tweaks, arranging last minute reception music when our guitarist was delayed and supporting all of our guests throughout the day, ensuring they were warm, dry and happy! We couldn’t recommend Val and Benessamy Weddings and Events enough - we loved working with her and our day was all the more special because of her hard work and support.
