Lisa-Jane & David // A Sheffield Tipi wedding in the Pennines at Lazy Daisy’s Farm 4th February 16

Here we have Lisa-Jane & David’s DIY tipi extravaganza on the outskirts of the Peak District at Lazy Daisy’s Farm. Standing in the shadow of the Pennines, at the time, purple with the flowering heather we were in store for a real treat.


I’d met with Lisa-Jane & David in Sheffield and when they explained their awesome, yet ambitious plans, I couldn’t wait to be a part of them! We’d taken a walk around the farm on their pre-wedding photo shoot so I had a really good flavour of the dramatic context and backdrop at the farm.


Every part of their day had been hand constructed, from the bar, which had been bolted together from old pallets, to the cakes, which featured later in a bake off competition (and mostly spread liberally over Dave’s face…)


The cottages at the farm had housed the wedding party for the days prior to the wedding whilst they built, baked and boozed. I arrived in the midst of a preparatory fervour, with delicate cake icing, bouquet arranging and all manner of productivity… As the morning progressed, everything started to take shape and the cottages housing both the bridal and groom parties relaxed and readied themselves for the trip to Barnsley where Lisa-Jane and David were to be married in their local church. “The Colonel” from Big Yellow Campers was their chariot, chauffeured by their close friend Andrew.


Once back at the farm, everyone had been encouraged to bring their own booze, as well as helping themselves from the rickety bar. The party begun and lasted well into the night although not until we were privy to one of the most incredibly colourful sunsets I’ve ever seen… Lisa-Jane, Dave and I had taken a brief trip along the Woodhead pass to stand amongst the heather and grab some portraits with the breathtaking backdrop of the Pennines.


I was so impressed at Lisa & Dave’s enthusiasm towards the DIY aspect of their wedding, every element had a distinctly personal stamp well and truly embedded into it. The whole day was just so much fun and I am so pleased that everyone had such an amazing day.


I absolutely love it when couples aren’t afraid to show their emotions… (even after they’ve gone ankle deep in a muddy bog) That is exactly how it was for Lisa & Dave and it was absolutely brilliant to be a to a part of such a wonderful occasion.
