Super Cool Canvas! Supplier Showcase: TotallyTipi

January 22nd, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Ooh, I do like an evening spent under canvas.  But not camping (are you mad?) or even glamping (should ever two words not be mashed together glamour and camping are those words!), but a party under canvas in a Scandinavian tipi tent is another thing entirely.  It’s thoroughly cool for a start.

.

Gleaming dance floors, fur throws, open fires, fabulous decor… and not a camping stove in site.  This is the life!

.

This afternoon we talk to the lovely Laura and Jay or Brides Up North Featured Supplier TotallyTipi about how you can make your wedding celebration stand out from the crowd.  With images by John Steel Photography and LMX Creative.

.

.

When did TotallyTipi begin and why?

.

TotallyTipi Ltd was born in 2011 having been at a wedding in a two-tipi setup two years earlier. We fell in love with them immediately and thought more people should benefit from their beauty. Some research showed there was just one company in the region so we felt there was space in the market for us to set up – and here we are! Founders Jay and Laura are both from creative backgrounds, Jay in media and events and Laura in design.

Tell Brides Up North about the service that you offer?

.

TotallyTipi’s focus is on providing giant tipi ‘kata’ tents for weddings and events. But that’s not all. Everyone has their own personal idea of what makes a perfect event and we like to help make it a one-off in whatever way we can. This can be help in choosing the right location or connecting a client with others in the wedding industry who can, for instance, theme and dress the tents or offer a load of finishing touches for hire so they can explore their creative side and dress the tents themselves.

.

Generally speaking we get two ‘types’ of client. Those who love the tents and work everything out around the tents (such as the venue) and those who have their venue but are undecided on whether to hire teepees or a marquee.

.

.

Tell Brides Up North about your teepees?

.

Warming, cosy, rustic or formal, the teepees are very adaptable and so beautiful that they can look stunning even with minimal decor. Having a wedding or reception inside a tipi will ensure people remember it for a long time.

.

Inside a tipi there is a feeling of fusing the natural world outside, with stylish and comfortable surroundings inside, at a location that could be right in your back yard (literally!) or in the middle of sweeping countryside.

Multiple teepees are connected using special methods to make event spaces as small or large as a client dictates. Each one is just over 10m in diameter and is supported by nine solid wooden poles measuring over eight metres in length! The trees used for the tipi poles are specially grown in Sweden for strength and flexibility and are typically 100 years old when felled- very strong!

.

The fabric is waterproof yet breathable so you don’t get condensation drips and it traps in a surprising amount of heat!

.

This type of tipi is also describes as a ‘Giant Hat’ as all of the sides can be propped up so one tipi on its own looks just like a witches hat. This technique of having the sides raised really can bring the outside in – particularly wonderful on a warm summer’s eve…

.

Furthermore, one of the unique aspects of a tipi is the ability to have a real indoor fire thanks to its conical design. It provides heat as well as a warming atmosphere and smoke flaps at the tip of the tipi act as the chimney .

What sets TotallyTipi apart from your competition?

.

TotallyTipi are a small, friendly, experienced company based in South Yorkshire, run by partners (in business and life!) Jay and Laura. Being a small company we take pride in every detail of our events and offer a very personal touch to our brides and grooms. Our team has experience of several hundred tipi set-ups so our couples can be assured of our quality.

.

Because we are dedicated to creating perfect events, we manage our workload to ensure that each customer gets enough of our time so every event is planned and delivered with minimum hassle and to the highest standards of customer service.

.

We are also soon unveil our beautiful bespoke TotallyTipi wooden tables and dance floor for 2013. These will be very unique and not like anything else available to hire. We are very excited about these! Watch this space.

.

With TotallyTipi, what you see is what you get. There are no hidden extras – and we give our couples full scope to make an event their own or provide the complete arrive-and-it’s-all-done-for-you service.

.

Are teepees good for winter as well as summer weddings?

.

This is a question we are often asked and the answer is yes!

.

The giant tipi design is inspired by the traditional teepees lived in by the Sami people of Lapland – so they’re built to withstand the weather and contain warmth.  There is a lot of skill involved in joining the teepees so that they are fully weather-proof. This is where our team’s vast experience is invaluable. Our Operations Director brings with him the wealth of knowledge gained from several hundred tipi and marquee set-ups so we are confident that we can handle whatever the weather throws at us!

.

Plus there’s our secret weapon – the indirect space heater. This blasts warm, fume-free air to keep you toasty all day long.

.

.

Tell Brides Up North about the Snowflakes and Schnapps event (pictured)?

.

This was a collaboration between TotallyTipi, Chilled Events and Horti-Couture at Thwaites Mill to provide a pop-up Christmas party venue in Leeds. Thwaites Mill is just 2 miles from the city centre and is a gorgeous hidden gem. The teepees looked stunning against the backdrop of trees and the beautiful old buildings at the mill.

.

We wanted to show that the tents are good for the winter months and have them out and about rather than hanging about in their bags!

.

As Christmas events are an obvious choice, we worked with Chilled Events who brought in the clients.

The events were a hit and despite it being -3c outside, we had to turn the heating down! We’re certainly hoping to do more in 2013.

.

.

.

.

What extras are available for a couple hiring a tipi?

.

In order to help make our events as bespoke required, we don’t have a ‘set list’ of accessories for hire; we have access to a constantly evolving, HUGE list of accessories, furniture, fabrics and decor that can be hired to furnish the teepees. From the smallest rustic vase to the most twinkling grand chandelier, we can help!

.

We can also bring the flames outdoors with our recycled Indian fire bowls which have optional hanging bowls for mulled wine or a chilli and our festoon-lit walkway (pictured) adds a real hit of glamour on approach to the tipi.

.

.

.

Where are you located and can you travel?

.

We’re based in South Yorkshire, S75 between Barnsley and Wakefield but travel nationwide across England, Scotland and Wales. It’s a great spot because Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester are all a hop, skip and a jump away with easy access to the M1 and A1.

.

.

Can you give Brides Up North an idea on price?

.

Most events for 100 people work out at around £4,000 including lighting, tables, chairs, dance floor and the fire.  Numbers of 100 – 150 guests require a third tipi which adds an average of £2,000 to the price by the time you’ve also accounted for the additional flooring and lighting.

Real Wedding Recap 2012: ROCK The Party! A Real Wedding In Leeds – Faye & John

December 31st, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Leeds Wedding by John Steel Photography

.

.

Over the festive period I’ll be recapping some of my very favourite Real Weddings from the last 12 months on the wedding blog. It’s been a tough choice! In true Brides Up North style, each wedding featured on these pages is unique, beautiful and gorgeously personal. It’s been an exceptionally fabulous year! Enjoy…

.

As we head into the New Year it’s off to Leeds to recap on the fun filled Real Wedding of Faye & John, sent to me by Brides Up North North Featured Supplier John Steel Photography (click here to read a recent interview with this lovely man).  Get ready to parrrrrrrrrrrrrrty!

.

Yorkshire Wedding by John Steel Photography

Faye says:  We got engaged in April 2011, whilst on a holiday in Robin Hoods Bay. I grew up in Robin Hoods Bay. John proposed on the beach, it was a complete surprise!

.

We were married on 25th August 2012 in Leeds City Centre. We had the ceremony at the Park Plaza hotel, overlooking City Square. We had a drinks reception outside the Loch Fyne, City Square and enjoyed the sunshine. Then headed back to the Park Plaza for our wedding breakfast and celebrations.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

We both wanted an urban wedding. We hold a lot of fond memories of Leeds so it felt natural to celebrate the big occasion in familiar surroundings with such great memories. We looked at a lot of venues in Leeds and really liked the floor to ceiling windows and the natural light that beamed into the building. The Park Plaza was also fantastic value.

.

The theme was a huge celebration/party. We wanted our wedding to be a big celebration, lots of fun, very relaxed and full of colour and laughter. We have been to lots of weddings in the past where they are just overly formal. We are not formal in the slightest so didn’t understand why we should behave that way on what is supposed to be the biggest day of our lives. We are used to celebrating in style so arranged for plenty of fancy dress, party poppers and a ceremony with a twist to put everyone at ease and allow them to act how they would at a party not at a wedding.

I wanted a dress that was simple and didn’t make me feel all trussed up. The dress I chose was a boho style dress, very simple, very light and not at all structured. It was an off the peg dress from Bridal Warehouse in Kirkstall, she has some beautiful dresses and very reasonable prices.

.

I asked for a country garden bouquet, one that looked quite natural. Adrianne Florist made me a beautiful, bright bouquet and it was perfect for the day

John and I weren’t overly precious about all our bridal party looking the same, we just wanted everyone one to feel good in what they were wearing and comfortable on the day. The groom and best man bought their suits from TM Lewin. I tried on a couple of high street shops for our bridesmaids, Coast and Monsoon etc. In the end all the bridesmaids liked the same yellow dress from Monsoon. They were very summery and had the same simple style as my wedding dress.

We worked with a fabulous photographer, John Steel. John has a very friendly and relaxed disposition. He also did a pre wedding shoot with us, and we used these photos on our invitations. He always delivered when he said he was going to. An absolute pleasure to work with and some fantastic snaps.

We really wanted the day to be as inclusive as possible, and would have liked to have everyone at the whole day. This was not an option on our budget so we decided to have an open ceremony and drinks reception and then invited all our evening guests back for the celebrations and music. This worked really well, particularly as we were right in the centre of Leeds and there was plenty for our guests to do for a few hours whilst the wedding breakfast was taking place.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

We also wanted to get as many of our friends involved as possible. We asked a few of our friends to decorate the room and they did a wonderful job, it looked fantastic. The flowers were bought from Marks and Spencer  on the morning and arranged in vases by my Nan & Grandad. A friend of ours made our cake and My Dad and I got a lift to the venue from a friend. Everyone really stepped up to help and this is what made it special for us. That and a paper bag of pork pies for all our guests during the drinks reception. They went down very well!

We worked with some great musicians on the day. Music was provided during the drinks reception by Opie Deino , she played a beautiful acoustic set and all our guests really enjoyed her music, both her own songs and the covers she played.

.

We asked West Yorkshire Brass Band to play during the wedding breakfast. I love the brass sound, it’s very nostalgic. The band was fantastic and really set the scene. Their music has fun, heart-warming and got the guests up dancing doing the wedding breakfast, They even played a fan fair for our arrival, pure brilliance and absolute value for money.

.

During the evening we hired a funk and soul band called Chicago Joes and the Soul Divas. They were brilliant, very high energy and their sound was remarkable.  We asked a friend of ours who is a DJ to close the evening off and he did us very proud. His set was bouncing and so was the dance floor. Thank you Big Jiggy Sniggy Wizzle… you absolutely rocked our party!

My favourite bit?  That’s so hard! Waking up to Billy Idol, White Wedding really got the day off on a cracking foot! What’s not to love about that, cheers Bro! The whole day was remarkable, getting ready with friends and family, the journey to the venue with my Dad, very special. Missing the music queue and having to request, ‘play it again?’ which everyone got laughing. Catching the eyes of our nearest and dearest and of course my husband whilst walking down the aisle. Noticing guests in fancy dress and wigs during the ceremony, the ’husband & wife’ announcement, the trip through Leeds city centre for photos and mischievous fun. The speeches, the first dance, the first dance off. We loved it all.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

John arranged the honeymoon and it was a big surprise when I found out we were going to Peru, to complete the four day Inca Trail and then on to Columbia. South America is always a part of the world I wanted to explore and it was inspiring, intriguing, relaxing and wild! Peru and Columbia are amazing places to visit. I’d highly recommend them.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be that we both wanted to face our guests for the ceremony and I highly recommend this. Being able to see your guests while you’re saying your vows is magic. We all laughed so much during our ceremony and it felt very personal.

Fabulous Photographer: John Steel Photography PLUS A Cheeky Discount For Wedding Blog Readers!

November 25th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

Happy Sunday everybody!  How are you spending the last Sunday before Advent?  I’m off to a “Christmas” dinner with my in-laws, so I’ll be breaking open the tinsel a little early… it seems that the countdown to Christmas is officially on, not least the countdown to the Brides Up North Christmas Party in just under three weeks time.  Hurrah!

.

*Mild I’ve-not-started-my-Christmas-shopping panic*

.

If the countdown to Christmas is on, then the countdown to 2013 weddings must be on too!  How exciting… if you are tying the knot in 2013 you have such fabulous times ahead of you.  Enjoy every minute of the planning (we have some amazing bridal events across the regions planned for 2013 to help you with this – more later) and your celebration.

.

One supplier that it pays to investigate thoroughly and book early is your wedding photographer.  A good photographer really does make memories.  Today we meet Brides Up North Featured Supplier and fabulous Yorkshire photographer John Steel, a professional with personality as well as talent.  What a range this man has!  Plus, there’s a cheeky little discount for Brides Up North readers too…

How did you get into wedding photography? 

.

I started off as an amateur photographer a number of years ago, and found myself specialising in skateboard and night photography. My pictures started to appear in national magazines. Despite being completely self-taught, mastering the challenges of these two very differing types of photography proved I had the technical side sussed.

.

I used to think wedding photography was all about group formals as this was my experience of being a guest at weddings. Then, six years ago, I was at a friend’s wedding and shot some candid pictures. I was able to create a beautiful album using the images I got and gave it to the happy couple as a wedding present. Everyone loved the pictures, saying that they were better than the official photographer’s which gave me a real boost. I realised I got a buzz out of photographing people and documenting the emotions of the big day. Once the penny dropped that wedding photography was about people and capturing their feelings, and that I could show some creative flair in doing so, I was hooked!

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.
Why wedding photography specifically? 

.

Wedding photography is just so rewarding – nothing beats knowing I’ve documented one of the most important occasions in a couple’s life. It is challenging, but I relish the opportunity to combine my people, creative and technical skills and am always really proud of the end results, knowing that I’ve captured the story of the day as it has unfolded.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

What is your favourite thing about being a wedding photographer? 

.

I love my job for many reasons. I feel privileged with each wedding I cover as I experience someone’s big day from all angles (from behind the scenes preparations through to the raw emotion of the ceremony, to more intimate moments and crazy party time!). I get to meet and know fantastic people – every couple has a story to share. Wedding photography keeps me on my toes as each wedding is so unique and presents new opportunities and challenges from a photography point of view. The most special thing about being a wedding photographer is knowing that the pictures I take on the day are going to be treasured, not just by the happy couple but by generations to come.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.
How do you get couples to relax on the day? 

.

My packages include a pre-wedding shoot, so come the big day, we’ve already spent a few hours together with the camera, getting to know each other in a relaxed environment. The couple choose the venue of their pre-wedding shoot so that they feel at ease, if they have kids or pets I encourage them to come along too – whatever it takes to make them feel relaxed. We will go through in detail the plan for the day, discussing timings, logistics and what pictures are specifically required so I can get on with my job without causing any need for the bride and groom to worry. By the time the wedding day arrives, my couples have got used to being in front of the camera and seeing how I work. Also, my style of photography lends itself to naturally posed shots as I believe in capturing the true personality of the people I am photographing.

.

John Steel Photography

Any advice to any brides who don’t like to have their picture taken? 

.

From my experience, most people (not just brides!) don’t like having their picture taken! If a bride and groom have chosen a photographer that they get on with, then that’s half the battle won. Having a pre-wedding shoot is a brilliant way of getting used to being photographed by a professional, and will give you an idea of how much fun can be had on a shoot. Getting the images through well before the wedding will give you a real confidence boost too. On your wedding day, you’ll be so busy enjoying yourselves and taking it all in that you will barely notice me as I capture your day in a candid, relaxed and fun way.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.
What sort of makeup should a bride wear to look great in her pictures? 

.

I am certainly no make-up expert but my advice would be to get a make-up artist. From what I’ve seen, having professional make-up will boost a bride’s confidence and a bride can never be too pampered can she?! Make-up artists will do a trial run, and this can be tied in with the pre-wedding shoot so a bride can get a good idea of how her make-up will look on camera.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.
Anything to avoid which might look bad in the wedding pictures? 

.

I think it’s more down to the photographer to make sure things will look right in the pictures and to show everyone off to their best. I will have done my homework before any wedding – researching the venues, and thus finding a good backdrop for pictures. If group formals are required, which are slightly more posed, I might ask people to stand in a certain place or make small adjustments. My strength is in capturing people as naturally as possible.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

Which celebrity wedding would you most like to photograph and why? 

.

I would have loved to have photographed Peter Kaye’s wedding. I think the speeches would have been hilarious and I am a big fan of “garlic bread”!

.

John Steel Photography

Any really memorable weddings that you have captured? 

.

Every single wedding that I photograph is memorable for so many reasons. I love them all and each one tells its individual story and has its individual style. One particular wedding that springs to mind was one that was shot up in Scotland. The day started off with a ceremony in a village hall. After this we proceeded to the venue – a marquee overlooking a gorgeous, sandy beach. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, it really was the most perfect setting for a wedding reception…apart from the gale force winds that had been blowing all night and day! Just as the guests were summoned to take their seats in the marquee, a gust of wind tore through the marquee and ripped it in half! It was so dangerous in there, it was like the world’s largest sail and it could have taken off at any second.

.

Fortunately the bride and groom and their friends were a bunch of people with a very positive attitude. There was no way that this was going to ruin their day. A decision was made to re-locate the entire wedding reception back to the village hall. Most of the guests had vans (being band members) so everyone helped load them up with tables, chairs, plates, cutlery, decorations, all the catering and bar equipment not to mention the food and drink, and drive them back to the village hall. Opposite the hall was an old skool coffee shop so I have some lovely pictures of the bride sipping tea in there, staying calm and re-charging her batteries while a whirlwind of activity took place across the road in the hall. Within three hours everyone was able to sit down to a hot meal and enjoy the wedding celebrations. After the meal they had a party outside with lots of drumming and people twirling fire etc until the neighbours complained! The winds had finally calmed down so once again a decision was made to go back to the original venue. An all night party under the stars proceeded – it really was an unforgettable experience for all involved!

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

.

.
Are you married?  Tell us about your day. 

.

Yes, I am married. Our wedding will always be the best wedding I’ve ever been to (my wife will be reading this!). Our main aim was to keep things true to us, every single element had meaning, we did away with things that didn’t reflect who we were or what we believed in. We got married in a village hall which overlooked the stunning Yorkshire countryside. We had an intimate humanist ceremony surrounded by our closest friends and relatives, we planted a tree, we ate the most delicious steak I have ever tasted, our flowers were grown locally, the speeches had everyone in stitches and we got all our guests including my wife’s 95 year old granny up on the dance floor with a ceilidh. We had a Yorkshire brass band playing during and after the ceremony and award winning pie and peas for supper. My wife wore an amazing dress made from hand-dyed organic silk and looked beautiful. I had to photograph the hall set-up on the day of my wedding as I am the venue’s recommended supplier but that was good as I didn’t have time to get nervous beforehand.

.

.
Any funny stories to share? 

.

I have a whole bank of funny stories. Whilst we are on the subject of my wedding I will tell this one. I didn’t want to go for the usual hiring of a morning suit so I thought it would be nice to treat myself to a new suit. I asked my friend to come shopping with me. I bought a nice designer suit and didn’t wear it until my wedding day. As already mentioned I had to photograph the set-up for my wedding so I did that. On my way to put my camera away (I had my orders) my best man said “do up your flies fella” – I reached down and noted that they were already done up. I then looked down and realised that I had a large gaping hole in the groin area of my trousers! Luckily we managed to patch up my wardrobe malfunction with some gaffa tape which just about held things together during the ceremony, after which some safety pins were tracked down.

What sets you apart from other wedding photographers? 

.

I take pride in being open, honest and transparent with my pricing; there are no hidden extra costs. For example, all my packages include full coverage, I’m happy to cover the bridal preparations and to stay until the last guest leaves the dance floor so that your story is told in full. The fun booth is also included at no extra cost in my packages. I like to go the extra mile for my customers, offering quality products and outstanding customer service.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.
What can a couple who book you expect on the day? 

.

I’ll be there early as early as you need me and I’ll stay as late as you want me! We’ll have discussed your wedding timings beforehand so you can be sure I’ll always be in exactly the right place to capture the key moments. The focus of the day itself is all about you. A lot of the time you won’t even know I’m there – I will be blending into the background. I take care of the photos, you take care of enjoying yourselves and I promise I won’t boss anyone around or get on anyone’s nerves.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

What is included in your "package"? 

.

I like to keep things simple so I have two packages, with both of them you get:

.

· Pre-wedding shoot and the high resolution images from the shoot

· Full day’s wedding coverage from bridal preparations until the end of the evening celebrations (or as long as you would like me there)

· Fun booth

· At least 300 images from the wedding, all high resolution, no watermarks, ready to print as well as low resolution versions, re-sized for Facebook or other social media.

· Secure, online gallery to share with your guests

· DVD slideshow of the images set to your favourite music

.

My premium package also includes a 20 page 12×12 bespoke, ultimate quality, fine art cotton paper album (approx 60 images)

.

.

John Steel Photography

.
Can you give us an idea on price?

Can you do a discount for Brides Up North readers?

Yes, all Brides Up North readers can get a cheeky 10% discount, just mention BUNDISCOUNT.
