Tipi wedding in Kent with Esther and Andrew

Esther and Andrew had such a great Tipi wedding in Kent. From the Church ceremony which was only a short walk away, to the gorgeous private farm that has been in Esther’s family for years, this really was a beautiful wedding day. Check it all out below.

First names: Andrew and Esther 
Ages: 33 and 30
Wedding date: 13th August 2022
Venue: Dalham Farm

How did you guys meet, tell me all?

We met in Canterbury, in The Shakespeare pub. It was Winter and our first few dates involved snowy walks and hot chocolates. 

How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?

Andrew is from Cape Town, SA, so what better place to propose? We got engaged on a small beach called ‘Bakoven’ and then drove to the top of Lion’s Head to watch the sunset over Table Mountain. Our families were waiting for us with sparkles. Magical! 

What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?

Esther grew up on a farm in Kent and lived just down the road from her Grandparents. She always said she would get married in ‘Granny’s Garden’, so there were no questions asked when it came to choosing a venue. We decided on a homemade wedding! 

Tell me about your dress? Who was it designed by and was there a particular style you were drawn too?

I had no idea what type of dress I wanted. I headed to a beautiful bridal shop in Tunbridge Wells called ‘Isabella Grace’. The dress I ended up wearing was the first dress I tried on. 

What was the inspiration/theme/styling of your wedding?

Country, rustic. 

What is your first song and why?

‘How Long Will I Love You’ by Jon Boden. The lyrics are just beautiful and the band’s style adds the perfect country twist! 

What would be your number one tip to other couples planning their wedding?

Take your time! Do not rush into booking anything, and thoroughly go through your various options and what each will cost.
