Recent Weddings and Events at Vanstone Park

We’ve hosted a number of great events over the last couple of years at Vanstone Park, which borders a vast woodland just outside Hitchin in Hertfordshire. It is the perfect backdrop for anyone looking for a blank canvas tipi wedding, festival or party.

Country Tipis

We’re Country Tipis and since setting up our base at Vanstone Park Garden Centre, we would use the adjacent parkland to host our open days and to showcase our giant tipis. Guests would always comment on how lovely the site was and that it should be a wedding venue. Once Abi & Dave asked if they could have their wedding onsite back in 2017, Vanstone Park Weddings and Events was born! 

The Garden Centre provides mains power, an 80 space dedicated car park and a pergola entrance decorated with wisteria and jasmine to create a gorgeous welcome for guests on to the site. You can even hire plants and trees from them to decorate the tipis.

All the Essentials

Now with two very successful wedding seasons under its belt, we have created an all inclusive package in collaboration with Vanstone Park which provides you with all the essentials you’ll need to get started. Such as; three giant tipis, seating for up to 120 guests (adjustable), a dance floor and a luxury toilet block to name just a few. Then you can add on any extras to tailor it to your needs. What’s more, we offer exclusive weekend hire so there is plenty of time for all you DIY-ers to create the day you want!

Vanstone Park offers you the space and panoramic setting to create your bespoke wedding day just how you want. Personalise your special day by choosing your own catering, entertainment and styling suppliers or we can recommend some to get you started. Along with your choice of decoration, colours and theme, each wedding and event here is truly one of a kind.


The Hammered Peg

We also run our bar, The Hammered Peg, for your event. Providing a full bar service with a range of drinks and cocktails to suit any taste. We can also take care of your table and welcome drinks. Serving from our rustic pallet wood bar, our experienced and friendly staff ensure your guests are welcomed and watered throughout the day.

Your tipi man will oversee the day and take care of the little extras like welcoming your suppliers onsite and lighting the gorgeous fireball, leaving you to enjoy your magical day.

Vanstone Park Garden Centre

Surrounded by an array of wildlife, greenery and a miniature railway ride, Vanstone Park is not just a field. Why not make use of all the space, just like Adele & Paul in September 2018. They ventured throughout the garden centre and its grounds to get some special pictures of their day.

Situated next to the family run Vanstone Park Garden Centre, you arrive through the main gates and follow the winding grounds passed a hidden stone palladium and little bridge home to an assortment of wildlife. Once on site and in the tipis you start to realise how tucked away Vanstone Park is and appreciate the gorgeous setting even more!

Real Wedding – Rachel & Ryan

A dream wedding

In late August last year Rachel & Ryan decided to tie the knot in the grounds of Lodge Farm House close to Hitchin, Hertfordshire. The ever stylish and creative Nicki Shea Photography captured their special day in this selection of beautiful snaps, enjoy!

Lodge Farm House in all its glory

It’s always great to see Lee Smith wowing guests at one of our weddings. He’s great at keeping everyone entertained, kids and adults alike!

This is the secret garden, where you can hold your ceremony, shhh!

Choosing the right venue

It’s so important to choose a venue that suits both of you. Location, facilities, accommodation options, style and size are all important factors to consider. Lodge Farm House is a B&B, so you have an accommodation option right next to the reception. It’s only a small house, so other guests can stay in nearby Hitchin or Stevenage. Their secret garden provides a beautiful quiet setting to hold a “show” ceremony and comes complete with an arbour. If you like the look of the venue get in touch with Maria who will be more than happy to show you around. If you’re looking for something a bit different from your venue send us a message or take a look at our interactive venues map.

We love this table decor, it suits our rustic tables so well
Time to party!

Rachel & Ryan hired the incredible beatboxers Bloxed Beats to perform in the evening, as you can see they provided some great entertainment!

Fairy lit Tipis at night, what more could you ask for?

Big thanks to Nicki Shea Photography for sharing these fantastic photos with us.

If you’d like us to feature your wedding or a wedding where you worked alongside us please send an email to hello@countrytipis.co.uk.


Real Wedding – Gemma & Kara

Gemma & Kara’s laid back bohemian style wedding was featured on the Rock My Wedding blog last year. We’re in love with it so much that we’re sharing it here too. The beautiful tones, special moments and soft light were captured by the brilliant Elena Popa. She coupled emotive portraits with party shots at the fantastic Lakeside at Tip Top Venues. Enjoy!

Wedding planning

Kara: “We were going for a relaxed outdoor wedding vibe. From creating our own retrographic invitations, salvaging wood and making our wedding bower, to lugging over hay bales for our fire pit seating. If you are planning on putting a lot of personal touches which require preparation or building make sure you check that the venue will allow you to get on site before the big day and we were lucky that Tip Top Venues let us do that. We managed to set up the site with plenty of hands to help decorate the Tipis and ceremony area with homemade shepherd hooks and vases, hanging homemade wreathes and the wedding bower itself all beautifully decorated with the bountiful flowers we got from the wholesalers.”

The Ceremony

“After the ceremony the VW campervan took us for a private photoshoot with our very talented photographer Elena Popa, whilst the campervan served us ice cold champagne. Despite all the love overflowing from friends and family throughout the day and evening getting some time with my new wife was one of my most favourite moments.”

The Reception

“As we came back we greeted all of our friends with our bartender dazzling with his cocktail skills and headed into the tipi with the sides up to look over the lakes and sit down to our amazing feasting tables who pulled out all the stops. No ‘chicken or fish’ options here – just long wooden tables with smiling faces, grazing on breads, cheeses, seafood, cured meats and much more provided by Amazing Graze. Set out exquisitely in between decorations and our own nik-naks on the rustic furniture provided by Country Tipis. We decided that most people discard favours, so we ordered hand carved place names from Etsy, it was great and everyone kept them and had lots of pictures of people using them in their own homes!”

Top Tips

“Gem and I both loved our dresses (supplied by Wed2B), but as evening came we swapped them for our dancing clothes to party the night away. As silly it sounds all of the little things you could never think of made it go seamlessly. We had great toilets (which is important for an outdoor wedding!) friendly security to keep everybody safe, and enough drink to keep everyone satisfied!”

“It was the best day for us, whatever your wedding just make it your own because at the end of it you will look back and love every second with all the uniqueness of your love. And if anything does go wrong then smile because it will only make a great story.”

Our Giant Tipi Showcase – In photos

Thanks to everyone who braved the drizzle to come to our Giant Tipi Showcase at Vanstone Park Venue, it was great to see all of you and talk about your wedding or event plans. In case you missed it, here are a few snaps taken by the hugely talented Stephen from Pike Photography. The “Live Tipi Build” was a bit of a washout but a lucky few managed to catch our crew in action!

We had a number of great wedding suppliers joining us for the day, their details can be found below:

Plenty of Thyme are event caterers and create incredible pizzas, along with a lot of other things! Get in touch with head chef Dave for a quote.

We’ve worked with Disco Nyts on many occasions, and we know they are reliable and will deliver an amazing service every time. They even built a rustic pallet-wood DJ booth to match our tipis, now that’s commitment!

Often people ask us how we build the Tipis, so we thought we’d hold a live build demo throughout the day. This is Ryan, he regularly sleeps in his harness he loves it so much!

 

Kerry from Foxgloves + Alice is a locally based artisan florist who creates bespoke arrangements for weddings & events. The vintage crockery, styling and quirky extras were provided by Herts Vintage Hire.

We run our own mobile bar “The Hammered Peg,” and you can choose either our converted horse-box or our 4m rustic wooden bar as pictured. We base the hire price on a minimum spend that we take as a refundable deposit.

Lisa Lyons creates bespoke wedding dresses, at her studio in Harpenden, check out her amazing handiwork!

Kat from Kat’s Cutouts launched her face-in-the-hole boards at our Showcase, aren’t they amazing!

We always love working with Alice from Fleur de Lace. Her funky, bold and creative approach to each job is incredible and really adds the perfect finishing touch.

Rosie from Brolly Bucket provides lovely umbrellas along with wicker baskets and cosy blankets, delivered to your door.

And that’s farewell from the team at Country Tipis, see you next time, and thanks again for the photos Stephen! Please do get in touch if you’d like any advice on any aspect of your event, we’re more than happy to help.


Twigs + LEGO – Behind the scenes on the “Tipi Showcase” shoot

We recently organised a shoot to promote our upcoming “Tipi Showcase,” and to be a little bit different we featured a real couple: Sara & Peter.

The Shoot

Sara & Peter arrived early at a blazing hot 30-degree Vanstone Park Venue early last week to prepare for the shoot. Sara dealt with the heat well in her beautifully tailored wedding dress, clutching a bunch of beautiful red peonies. An impeccably smart looking Peter managed just as well in his light blue 3-piece-suit. He paired his suit with a maroon tie, with his chiselled beard and glowing skin completing his look.

The dynamic between the couple was amazing; they got on so well from the off which made the shoot incredibly easy. The fact that they are a real couple helped enormously, we sure hope they go for a tipi wedding when their wedding comes around!

There were a few mishaps throughout the day, with both Sara & Peter being slightly unsteady on their feet at times, but we managed to get the crucial shots we were aiming for.

The Showcase

Make sure you don’t miss our Tipi Showcase on the 22nd of September from 9am – 9pm, featuring a few slightly larger tipis, plenty of food & drink and live tipi building demonstrations from our crew throughout the day. Use our contact form or email hello@countrytipis.co.uk to book a slot, or just come along!

We’ve invited the following suppliers along who we love:

The Hammered Peg – mobile bar

Plenty of Thyme – event catering

Fleur de Lace – wedding & event styling

Disco Nyts – DJ & PA

Aimee + Jonny // 07.04.18

This month we are handing the blog over to Aimee (& Jonny), who had their wedding reception inside two of our Giant Tipis back in April at the fascinating Chiltern Open Air Museum in Buckinghamshire. Check out their story, and some snaps from the wedding by the hugely talented fine art photographer (and Aimee’s sister!) Lori of Terri & Lori.

How did you meet?

We met through mutual friends when I (Aimee) was 17 and Jonny was 18. We both attending a DJ set in Hitchin where I was attending sixth form. I had to wear a wristband to state I was under 18, so Jonny bought me a diet Coke! We hit it off and met again the following week, becoming great friends and eventually a couple about a year later.

How long have you been together?

8 years! In that time, we’ve studied for our degrees, lived in three different cities, I’ve set up as a freelancer, and Jonny has embarked on his career as a primary school teacher.

Tell me your proposal story.

It was a couple of weeks before Valentine’s day in 2017 when Jonny announced one Saturday morning that he was taking me on a treasure hunt of sorts around London. I assumed it was an early Valentine’s day activity, so happily went along with it none the wiser.

Little hand-written notes led me to St Pancras train station, brunch in Soho, up St Paul’s Cathedral, and behind the scenes at the British Film Institute. Finally, we ended up in St Dunstan’s in the East, a church that was damaged in the Great Fire of London and then again in the Blitz. It’s now a Grade I listed building and has been turned into a beautiful open-air churchyard and gardens. Here, Jonny gave a lovely, heartfelt speech, got down on one knee, and produced a ring that he had created for me with the help of the brilliant designers at Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery. I of course said yes!

Why did you choose Chiltern Open Air Museum for your wedding day venue?

We visited the Chiltern Open Air Museum on a Summer day in 2014 with my sister and brother-in-law. We were so intrigued by the idea behind the museum, and especially loved the grounds in which the buildings are situated. It was like travelling back in time! During our visit, we noticed that Skippings Barn (where our civil ceremony took place) was dressed for a wedding reception, with a marquee pitched up in the adjoining field. We thought it was such a unique venue for a wedding!

When we got engaged in 2017, our minds turned to venues and the Chiltern Open Air Museum cropped up in conversation. We only viewed one other venue before booking the museum but, after meeting with the events manager Caroline and talking through the venue, it was just a no-brainer for us! We knew we already loved it, and booked our wedding date about a month later.

What made you want to use tipis for your reception?

We knew we wanted to make a statement with our choice of structure to accompany our barn ceremony. We really wanted to go with something to compliment the barn’s rustic charm, but also something that would completely wow our guests. The tipis were a perfect fit. We also loved the option of having a wood-burning stove and fire pit to create cosy indoor and outdoor atmospheres.

Tell me about the vision you had for your wedding including your theme/colour scheme/styling/flowers.

The barn and the tipi were so full of character in their own right, that we didn’t want to add too many other details to our day.

We kept the decor simple and paired back, and added features such as wildflowers in jam jars, old books, paper lanterns, and rustic wooden items such as the school desk we used for cards and presents, and the amazing stepladder cake table, both hired from The White Emporium. For the flowers, we chose light peaches, subtle taupes, hints of pink and lots of foliage. They were all designed and arranged by Jonny’s very talented mum!

What were your favourite parts of the day?

For Aimee, the speeches, the cocktails, the dancing, and catching up with friends from afar. For Jonny, chilling out by the fire pit, and enjoying the relaxed, informal atmosphere.

Who was your wedding photographer? 

We’re incredibly lucky that my sister happens to be a professional wedding photographer at Terri and Lori, a Photography & Film studio she co-owns with her business partner. We were thrilled that my sister was willing to capture our day and be my bridesmaid as well – no small feat! We love their effortless, fresh and relaxed style, with not a single moment missed. And, not only do we have amazing pictures from our day, we can also relive it all over again through the beautiful footage.

What would be your best bit of advice to other couples planning their wedding?

Decide what is really important to you both as a couple, and don’t be afraid to stray away from the norm!

Tipi evolution and development through the eyes of Jamie

Well, where do I start with my time at Country Tipis, I know exactly where I’ll start, with myself.

Pouring drinks behind Peggy’s Bar at one of our events

I began my journey to become a tipi erection specialist in early summer 2017 and if I’m honest I don’t know what they would have done without me… only joking! On a serious note, when I first joined I was so impressed with the rate at which Richard and Ceri have built the business to where it is today. Anyway, enough about them back to me.

My studies

Before beginning my Tipi adventure, I completed an engineering degree at Oxford Brookes University. Country Tipis offered me the perfect job during the summer months until I started my adventure in the city by the sea of Plymouth. I have recently moved down there to study towards a masters in Coastal Engineering. You never know I may be writing my dissertation on the feasibility of a water born Tipi! I am a budding surfer (hence the move to the glorious south west) and just a few weeks after leaving Country Tipis I was reunited with the beautiful structures on the beach at a surf event.

Enjoying some airtime next to Smeaton’s Tower in Plymouth recently: I’m studying hard I promise!

Through the ages

Throughout summer I have been curious as to the origins and practical engineering element of a tipi structure. The origin of Tipis (or Teepees) lie with the Native American tribes whose main aim for survival was to follow the buffalo herds across the American plains. The tipi was the perfect structure for the nomadic lifestyle, as setting up and disassembling was frequent and required minimal effort but maximum effectiveness. This is completely relatable to when we were trekking all around, setting up and taking down these amazing structures!

An interesting fact I stumbled across was that the women of the tribes were the sole assemblers, organisers and decorators of the tipis. Men were required to receive permission from the women to be able to carry out any decoration…not too dissimilar to many conversations over heard during many set-ups… I shall say no more! The tipis were often arranged in a circular pattern to create a secure living environment. We too can arrange as many tipis as required in a variety of formations to fit the space and type of event.

Working from an overlaid schematic

Tipi design

The design of the tipi is well suited to cope in all weather conditions. Similar to our modern day equivalent, the native Americans too had smoke flaps which kept the wind and rain out. It is well insulated to protect inhabitants from the cold and frost during winter months. The uninterrupted surface around the entire structure prevents the wind catching and blowing it over. The smoke flaps also allow for air flow, creating a cool environment during hot days.

Linking Tipis

Our tipis, designed and manufactured by the UK based The Tipi Company are simple but very effective. One of the key elements to a Tipi is the use of straps when joining more than one, to maintain tension on the canvas and keep it taught and safe. Visually, the tension creates a smoothness to the tipi canvas and it became a challenge for every event to be able to create the cleanest, tightest and most satisfying join. From an engineering aspect, when the wind applies a force to the canvas, the majority of the load is transferred through and around the canvas and because the canvas is made of a partially elastic material it absorbs the energy from the wind in the stretching of the material (I hope I’m not boring you too much!).

Our Tipis are often likened to a Tardis: from the outside, the scale and height of these structures is amazing but the most underestimated part of the tipi is the open plan space that is created inside. Tipis are so adaptable, many times we would arrive at a site and really question whether the tipi is going to fit/work but we always pulled it off. I felt like everyone had a particular skill that we would perfect every time, one of mine were fitting blanking panels to tidy up the joins, shout out to my blanking panel buddy Jason, who taught me everything I know ????.

Development

During one return journey from a job, I was boring Ceri with the idea of possible improvements to the design of the tipis. One idea was to use a lightweight alternative material legs such as a carbon fibre composite with a wood laminate to still give the natural feel.  The Tipi Company, if you’re reading this and decide to follow this up, copyrights are here. Another really cool idea I had was to create a mezzanine level, I think it would really make the most of the height of the Tipi just make an event even more exciting, it would also be a great storage place for those who just don’t want to go home!

It was a fantastic summer working for Country Tipis, I explored parts of my own county I never knew existed. Richard, Ceri and all the team are inspiring and I wish them all the best for the future. Peace out from Plymouth!


New for 2018 ▲

Thanks!

We’ve had an such a good summer of weddings and would like to extend massive congratulations to all of the couples who have celebrated their marriage with us, along with the festival goers and the birthday partyers who have all celebrated inside our Tipis this year. Each of you helped to make 2017 our biggest and best year yet! We were also very lucky to have such a committed and dedicated crew who helped us ensure that every build was spot on, we couldn’t have done it without you Country Tipi men!

Our first published shoot

Earlier in the year we collaborated with Carolione Opacic Photography on a burgundy and bohemian shoot in a Hertfordshire wildflower meadow. Last week we were so chuffed to find out it got featured on the Boho Weddings blog (check it out here)! Thanks so much to all the suppliers involved and Caroline for organising and coordinating it all so seamlessly.

What’s next?

As for 2018 we’ve decided to branch out slightly (no pun intended!) and we’ve bought a beautiful wooden pole Celeste Marquee ready for next year. We’ll be able to offer it in 3 lengths: 12m, 18m or 24m (12m width) and it will be priced from £2100 to £3900 including flooring, festoon lighting & LED uplighters. This round ended marquee provides an open and practical space that is perfectly suited to those wanting an outdoor wedding in an interesting yet traditional structure. The main poles are over 7m tall and they support a vast sail-cloth like roof which is firmly tension strapped to the ground. If you’d like any further information about hiring our Celeste Marquee please get in touch. 

Tip Top Venues – Newton Longville

We’re also super excited to announce that we’ve got a collaboration starting next year at one of our favourite venues. This beautiful lakeside spot at Tip Top Venues is ours for the summer: nestled in sprawling farmland in Buckinghamshire close to Milton Keynes. It is one of the first venues we built our tipis at, so it’ll always have a special place in our hearts. We’ll have two of our tipis up throughout 2018 with the option to add another if required.

We’re always on the lookout for individuals and companies to collaborate with, so if you feel like you would be a good fit with us at Country Tipis please do get in touch 🙂


Our favourite local venues

We know how important the venue you choose for your wedding is, after all that’s where you’ll be spending one of the biggest days of your life! This is the first in a series of “case study” blog posts that are going to give you an insight into some of our favourite local venues. We are more than happy to help you find the perfect venue, and in this post we will be focusing on Lodge Farm House in Kings Walden, Hertfordshire.

Having worked closely with Maria from Lodge Farm House in Kings Walden for over a year now. We absolutely love putting our Tipis up in the beautiful grounds there. The multi-level garden is not huge but it fits our 3 tipi triangle set-up like a glove, check out the photograph below!

Set within the beautiful rolling Chiltern Hills and only 3 miles away from the historic market town of Hitchin, you’ll struggle to find a better connected rural location. Lodge Farm House offers various packages to suit different budgets, including full use of the B&B during your wedding. There is even a beautiful secluded secret garden for you to hold your ceremony in. We’ve just held one of our first weddings of the season here: the fantastic wedding of Ricky & Jess, check out some shots from the hugely talented D&A photography below:

Lodge Farm House also run their own converted horsebox bar called the Tipsy Pony, which has a wide selection of great drinks. As of two weeks ago we now offer the option to link the bar to our Tipis using a custom joining kit to keep it sealed if required. Get in touch with Maria via email on info@lodgefarmbandb.co.uk or 01462 768 229 to arrange a viewing or for further information about the venue. You can also take a look at her website here.

If Lodge Farm House doesn’t take your fancy, why not take a look at some other local venues we work closely with on the map below? There are some absolute crackers in there!

We’re always looking for new venues to work with, so if you’ve found a perfect venue and you’re not sure if our Tipis would work there please get in touch and once of our team will come and do a site visit. If you represent a venue and would like to host weddings and events using our stunning Tipis feel free to get in touch 🙂


5 things to consider when planning a Tipi wedding

We know that planning a wedding can be a stressful affair. If you’ve decided to host your special day in a Tipi (good choice!) we have compiled a list of our top five considerations you should take into account.

© Jodie Cooling

1. Venue – This is a hugely important one, and with every one of our events we do a site visit to ensure that it is suitable for Tipis. Things to consider would be access, noise curfew, parking and of course size. We work closely with a number of approved local venues who we can recommend to you if you’re still looking for that perfect setting.

2. How many Tipis? – This depends on how many people you’re planning on hosting, and how many of them will be sitting down to eat. As a general rule of thumb one Tipi will seat up to 72 people, two will hold up to 120 people, three will seat in excess of 120 people with ample room for a dance floor, stage and chill out area. For a larger event four or more Tipis would be suitable, in theory you can join as many as you like! The way in which we link the Tipis creates extra room beneath the joins, and using three or more Tipis we can offer a choice of Tipi configurations.

3. Bar – Whether you organise this yourself or use someone else it’s important that the drinks don’t run out! If you’re looking for a bar supplier we have both a 4m indoor up-cycled pallet wood bar as well as a horsebox bar that can be linked to the Tipis, both of which we can provide fully stocked with your preferred drinks and two bar staff. Head over to Peggy’s Horsebox Bar for further pricing options.

4. Decoration – We think our Tipis look incredible without any extra decoration, and the combination of fairy lights and LED spotlights creates a magical atmosphere in the evening. This is totally up to you of course, some people choose a minimalist approach to decoration, with a few pieces hanging from the structure to match the table decor. We normally try and give you at least one day before your wedding to dress the Tipi. If you’re looking for someone who can get creative with the table dressing and theming we can recommend Beth from Pots in Bloom who we work closely with.

5. Entertainment – Whether you’re going for an 8 piece band or a DJ we’ll be able to accommodate them on our modular stage, creating a perfect platform for them. You don’t need us to tell you that there is a huge amount of event entertainment on offer from Josephs Amazing Camels who we met at a local trade show to a roaming magician, you can have it all! If you’d like us to recommend you one of our preferred suppliers please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Our list is by no means exhaustive, but we hope it helps in the planning of your special day! Don’t hesitate to send us a message if you have any further queries.
