I'm beaming from ear to ear as I write this post for you about the Open Weekend event that we planned and co-ordinated in asscociation with the fabulous Sami Tipi Events.
The event took place over the Easter weekend and we welcomed visitors over two days at the picturesque Bawdon Lodge Farm. The weather was kind to us on the Saturday and perhaps less so on the Sunday as the rain came down - but all in all our visitors received a warm Benessamy and Sami Tipi welcome from our team and the team of fabulous suppliers.
The tipis were beautifully styled by Darby & Joan with gorgeous flowers by Tineke Floral Designs, pom poms and bunting galore by Pom Pom Studio and Emma Bunting and lovely stationery by Best Day Ever. The fabulous cakes and treats display was provided by Yummy Little Cakes (including Macarons to die for!).
Visitors were entertained by music performed by The Burgundys on the Saturday and Mark James on the Sunday whilst sampling the delicious pork and banana salsa tortillas prepared by Thomas the Caterer. Cold beer and Pimms (and tea and coffee - given the chilly weather!) were made available to visitors in the chill out tipi at the bar provided by The Bespoke Bartender Company. The warm welcome was completed by the roaring fire in the fabulous fire pit!
Our lovely models wore beautiful Twobirds Bridesmaids dresses from Giling and White Bridal on the Saturday and bespoke wedding dresses by Timeless Couture on the Sunday with hair and make up styled by Ben and David Peck-Whiston.
All the gorgeous images in this post were captured by Matt Brown Photography.
I really enjoyed working with Sami Tipi and our fabulous and hugely talented team of suppliers. My special thanks to Matt Brown Photography for capturing all the gorgeous images used in this post and to the lovely Lara Elliot who has produced this wonderful film which captures the teamwork behind this fabulous event.
As if all of this wasn't fabulous enough, I am thrilled to have been booked by a rather fabulous couple who I met at the event.They have booked our wedding day management service for their Sami Tipi wedding in August. They have also booked The Ceremony Company, Matt Brown Photography, Darby & Joan and Yummy Little Cakes. What a fabulous line up!
