This is the awesome Derbyshire venue Ben & Mari chose to host their Tipi wedding, Ben and Mari live in Norway where Mari hails from, Ben is an englishman Living abroad, and rather sweetly they decided to come to Bens home land to get hitched!


Mari and Ben had thought a lot about their gluten free wedding catering and wanted to make a menu truly bespoke and as you know Thomas the caterer can’t quote for wedding Catering unless we meet you, but as there was the North sea as a barrier we had a lot of FaceTime calls and emails to make sure we had the correct menu to suit this creative couple here it is:
