They rescued Tipsy, their converted VW campervan, from the scrap heap and lovingly restored her into a beautiful food truck that is the perfect centrepiece for all festival-style weddings and events.

If you work with The Tipsy Pigs, you get caterers that exceed client expectations with innovative, wholesome and healthy cuisine, exceptional service and beautiful presentation while trying to keep costs affordable.
The Tipsy Pigs is owned by three local, old school friends - Neil, Carla and James, who combined their individual 20+ years' experience in the catering and events industry to develop a business that focused on quality food, flawless event planning and is environmentally aware.

The boutique has a carefully curated edit of bold and beautiful gowns which have been hand-picked from five international designers all offering the bride something a little bit different. Showcasing modern and sophisticated styles with a twist and an element of fun but always beautiful, dresses start at £1,000 and go up to £4,500.
Your wedding dress is probably the most important dress you are ever going to wear. Every choice you make for the big day is hinged upon the style of dress you choose and it can set the entire vibe for a festival-themed wedding.
Imagine a soft floaty gown with delicate appliqué flowers or beading for a laid-back '70s look or an A-line silhouette in organza or chiffon, perfect for an outdoorsy wedding. Match this with an unusual hair crown and a cascading bouquet of wild flowers and ivy. It doesn't have to be a cliché bohemian vibe; go for a modern, elegant twist and be bold.
White Stag Tipis
The White Stag Tipis brand has flourished beyond pulling influences from the team's early life. Growing up in bohemian Brighton where camping, life in nature, pheasant feathers, lace and furs were part of the everyday lifestyle, they want people to get back in to that spirit.
