Tipis at Riley Green Wedding Photography is probably the best wedding I’ve ever shot! I’m not exaggerating, the energy from start to finish was absolutely insane at this luxury tipi wedding venue in Lancashire. These are the coolest tipis I’ve seen, with built-in surroundings and fixtures that make the whole space look ace and guests feel right at home. These tipis are big enough to bring all of your guests with you to help you celebrate in style.

Will & Becky booked me to document their day on the back of photographing Will’s brother’s wedding, some years back. This meant I was already familiar with the family, which helps put people at ease as they get used to the camera on a wedding day. Will & Becky went all out to make sure their day was fulfilled to the maximum so not only did the aesthetics look great, but also ensured their guests had the best time ever. Which they well and truly did, it was amazing.


It was an early morning start joining the bride squad as they get their make-up and hair done at Becky’s parent’s house. This is where I started before heading over to Smithills Hall where the ceremony was to take place. The parent’s house was very busy with people milling about, in and out. I like it like this, I blend in amongst the hustle and bustle and document the moments unhindered without any awkward moments of bridesmaids looking startled that a camera is being pointed at them.

The general style for this wedding was boho, which lends itself perfectly to the tipi wedding venue, which set the whole vibe for the day. The flowers had colours of white tones and desaturated oranges to match the colour of the bridesmaid’s dresses. The inside of the venue looked top-notch, with wigwam-stick table centres, rustic aesthetics and a top table backdrop that showcased the newlywed’s surname, finished with a stylized flower arrangement packed with pampas grass and eye-catching paper fans.

Becky also adorned a romantic long, lace wedding dress which complimented the boho wedding theme perfectly.


Quite easily the best dancefloor scenes ever! It was packed with people doing crazy shit. I was in my element jumping in and around the guests as they got drunk and raved the night away. The party pretty much started as soon as the singing waiters broke out into song and people began to stand on chairs and wave their serviettes in the air. This quickly turned into a conga which lead to the dance floor, that then proceeded into shots, jumping over one another, pile-ons and bouquet throwing.

Then madness hit. More pile-ons, lifting people in the air, broken glasses and people doing the limbo and jumping over non-existing objects. An absolute free for all, and I loved every minute of it. It was ace!
