When we met with Beanie and Harry for their pre-wedding shoot at Beanie’s parents’ house, we were super excited to find so many amazing locations for photos. Why? Because they were also going to be celebrating their wedding in the very same place. There’s nothing better than a proper backyard tipi wedding in North Yorkshire on a summer’s day!
Beanie’s family home is in Milby near Boroughbridge and what a spectacular place it is! Surrounded by countryside and farmland, with a river and a lock, not to mention Beanie’s mum’s beautiful flowers in the back garden, it had just about everything we could ask for in terms of backdrops.
Harry and Beanie had the most perfect day. The August weather was beautiful, everyone was in awe of the tipi, and most importantly, they were surrounded by everyone they loved. Not only that but throw in an amazing vintage car for transport, and their beloved border collie, Sprocket (scroll down to see him in a few photos later on) and you’ve got everything you could want!
I joined Harry and his groomsmen in the morning, whilst Colin joined Beanie getting ready at home with her family and bridesmaids. Then it was off to All Saints Church at Kirby Hill for the ceremony, before a tipi reception later on.
Your tipi wedding in North Yorkshire
We adore outdoor weddings, and luckily we have the opportunity to photograph a lot of them. We’re based on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales so we’re blessed to be surrounded by lots of beautiful countryside, but we’re often all over Yorkshire in many other gorgeous places too.
We’re happy to recommend some fantastic tipi, yurt and marquee providers if you’re having this kind of wedding, and book us as your photographers. There are lots of venues who’ll allow you to have a tipi, or of course if you have the space you can do it just like Beanie and Harry, and use your own backyard or farm.
What did Beanie and Harry say about us?
“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! We have just gone through the photographs and they are absolutely perfectly amazing. Every one either brought a tear to our eye or made us laugh. They are everything we wanted and more and we cannot thank you enough for them. You were amazing to have on the day and helped to make it the most special one that we could possibly imagine. Thanks again for being our photographers, you’ve captured everything we were hoping for and more! The photos really are amazing!”
