Wedding by Sopley Lake, New Forest | Katy&Drew's beautiful outdoor tipi wedding by the lake

October 11, 2019



Wedding by Sopley Lake, New Forest | Katy & Drew's beautiful outdoor tipi wedding by the lake.


Really excited to share this wonderful day by the lake. Katy and Drew got married last July in a beautiful venue at the edge of New Forest in Dorset. They envisioned a relaxed and fun day with their closest friends and family with an outdoor ceremony in a field overlooking the lake and set up the most beautiful marquee.

With a rustic chic theme and pastel colours, they had wonderful long table set ups, with a lacy runner and wild flowers in pots made out of whisky bottles. They even had actual trees in the marquee, which made the whole atmosphere even more nature connected, we were absolutely in love with the setting!

What a wonderful job Katy and Drew did and what a wonderful joyful couple to work with!


Sopley Lake at Sopley Farm is really a unique venue in Dorset, at the edge of the magical New Forest, a place we were lucky enough to work at last year for the Tree House wedding of Liz & Andy (you can check their day out at this link).

At Sopley Lake they often set up marquees and tipi tents for people who wish to have an unconventional outdoor wedding. They have a wonderful field overlooking the lake in which the outdoor ceremonies take place and guests can admire and enjoy the lake view through out the whole day. So, definitely approved!!


If you think that an outdoor/tipi wedding is really the right choice for you, then check out our outdoor weddings session on the blog for more inspiration and ideas for your day!
