Katy & James - Real Life Wedding - Tepee Style

Katy & James - 9th August 2009

We wanted to share this real life wedding with all our lovely readers. Instead of having a traditional wedding ceremony many couples are now opting to have a bespoke wedding ceremony. UK law states that couples have to marry between the hours of 8am-6pm and it must be under a legal/permanent structure! Boo! It hardly fills the dream of getting married at sunset in the English countryside.

Katy and James are one couple who opted for such a bespoke wedding ceremony, they had a humanist wedding ceremony in a Tepee tent (provided by Papakata) in the Yorkshire countryside. A humanist ceremony is not constrained by law and it can be conducted at any location and venue. These ceremonies are conducted by a celebrant and can be as simple or complex as you want them to be. Readings, own vows or unity candles can be added. This quirky and fun loving couple had a tepee tent, english afternoon tea and an open air disco. This being the UK rain on the day, but the couple embraced this and Shoot Photography captured the day so beautifully. P.S love those wellington boots Katy, a must fashion accessory for an outdoor wedding!

Wedding Daze are supporting the Any Campaign, which is aiming at collecting 1000 signatures to present to the Uk Government. The campaign aims at getting a change in the UK wedding laws, so couples can marry anytime and anyplace.

"Ok so lets set the scene…. It’s a marriage outdoors in the middle of a field in the beautiful English countryside. There’s a Tepee which doesn’t quite hold all the guests as it’s going to be gorgeous and anyway the seating will be outside on hay bales. There will be champagne and cream teas on the lawn after the ceremony and a fab open air disco in the evening, oh yes and we’ve agreed to photograph AND film the wedding too – no worries. Hang on what’s this ……. RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN and then some more! Did it matter – not one jot. Katy and James are probably two of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. I fell in love with them both within five minutes of meeting them. I was so worried that it would rain and spoil everything for them but actually I think it made the day. Wellies were the chicest footwear choice and running around in the rain just didn’t seem to bother anyone. The children loved getting soaked and muddying their clothes – and so did Katy! They were rewarded in the evening with the most amazing sunset for the first dance. Now, for those of you who don’t know me, I always shed a tear at our weddings but I admit to actually blubbing at this one. It was all just so utterly, fantastically, brilliantly amazing. We LOVED it!!!!!" Jo at Shoot Photography
