Set in a rural locale and hidden amongst Devon’s rolling hills, Deer Farm Tipi Weddings offers a blissfully secluded setting for a wedding with breathtaking views across meadows roamed by the resident deer. In this styled shoot, the venue’s off-white tipis provide a striking venue space that blurs the lines between natural and industrial.
“We wanted to showcase a modern style that complements the Devon countryside while drawing inspiration from the contemporary industrial aesthetic of the surrounding luxury accommodation and history of the farm,” explains Stacey Gray of Glas Events, who coordinated and styled the shoot. “Much consideration went into working with local, ethical small businesses and showcasing the incredible talent of those in the south-west.”
Pillar candles in glass lanterns line the aisle to an arbour, dressed in dainty white blooms, foliage and billowing drapes, that frames the scenic countryside beyond. The far-reaching views and natural textures inside the tipis provide a timeless canvas for the contemporary aesthetic, where striking black accents, which are woven throughout the décor, are softened with a soothing palette of off-whites, oatmeal and oyster. Every element of the design, from the stationery to the cake, carries the clean lines and bold use of colour.
From a crisp white gown to a black lace dress teamed with an updo, the bridal styling is simple and stylish, striking the fine balance between modern and timeless carried throughout this captivating scene.
