Styled Shoot | Sami Tipi ‘Into The Jungle’
If you’re a regular follower of my blog, you might remember that I did a shoot for Sami Tipi at Cattows Farm as part of their Autumn open weekend. There were two tipis set up for inspiration, each styled with a different theme – my last post was about the rustic ‘Tuscan Romance’ styled tipi and in this post, you can see photos of the beautifully bohemian ‘Welcome To The Jungle’ tipi.
I loved this theme; it worked perfectly in a tipi because it felt like arriving back at camp after a day on safari. It’s right on trend at the moment too.
Cathy from Boelle Events pulled everything and everyone together to create this look, which was influenced by her travels to the jungles and villages in Thailand.
Being eco-friendly is a big part of Cathy’s business so she made a lot of the accessories herself, using organic and sustainable materials. She coloured organic cheese-cloth by hand with natural chemical-free dye for the table linens – the bold indigo dye and leaf prints were really eye-catching. The macrame is her own crafting too – I admire her patience to create that!
I had great fun photographing all the vibrant colours, bold patterns and rich textures. There was an abundance of plants too: billowing bamboo, tropical coconuts, trailing vines and leafy ferns. A firepit, piles of cosy cushions and candles gave it a laid-back, relaxed vibe.
Sooo, onto some of my favourites photos from the shoot…
