I was really honoured to be asked to be a part of Tip Top Venues open weekend. As one of their preferred suppliers, it was a great opportunity to meet other local suppliers that were also exhibiting as well as couples planning their tipi weddings. Despite the rain, the event was busy with lots of couples coming in to see the tipis in all their glory.
Tip Top Venues
Tip Top Venues is a gorgeous outdoor venue found in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. There are two main locations within their venue that are used for weddings and events. There is the stunning Lakeside which has your wedding set next to a beautiful lake. In the spring/summer, the field next to the tipis are covered in beautiful rapeseed. It gives you the feeling that you are in the middle of nowhere as it is set far back from the estate. Elin and Jordan had held their wedding at Lakeside at Tip Top Venues and it was such a gorgeous wedding. You can see more from their wedding here.
There is also Paddocks which is more ideal if you have younger guests (to avoid any worries about the lake). Available all year round and has beautiful scenery as well. Experience The Country is also a part of the estate if you’re looking for outdoor activities.
The Open Weekend
Set on a rather wet weekend, the tipis were set up by Country Tipis for the open weekend to be held in. Filled with inspiration and colour, the tipis looked stunning inside thanks to the collaborations of the suppliers exhibiting.
Tables were laid out decorated by The White Emporium and Flowers At Fifty Eight. There was a donut wall and cakes on show from Oh My Cakery. A.F Hair was making all the ladies feel glamourous by giving quick 5 minute hair styles to offer ideas on what could be done. Love From Becky had stunning floral crowns on show that were borrowed now and again by A.F Hair. Stratton Catering and Hungry Hog BBQ were on hand to keep everyone full, which Exquisite Cocktails offered refreshments. The Magic Mirror Company gave guests a taste of what fun they could have in the evening of their wedding with their photobooth. Other suppliers also there were The Flower Story, Light Up Your Love, Binky Nixon Photography and EllKay – K&P Events.
