Big Love! from Typical Type

Our BIG LOVE adventure began in the Summer of 2013. Typical Type was born from many years of left over pieces of wood and MDF being made by Darren into letters and shapes during quiet moments in the workshop. Dotted all around our house are little letters and tokens of love, and we decided it was high time to spread the joy to others, and so started Typical Type. Then in October 2013 we were then asked if we could supply BIG lit letters for weddings by a photographer friend. When we say BIG, we really mean BIG. One frantic week later the leap was made from 20 cm letters to 6 foot high ones. Our first wedding fair saw us take 6 bookings and we knew we were on the right path.

We are based between the lovely old town of Lancaster and the glorious seaside town of Morecambe, and we now deliver our lovely BIG letters, numbers and lighting solutions all over the North West. Initially we worked from home, but now we have out-grown that and have a happy work shop near the river Lune, and deliver all over the North West.

Now we are the proud suppliers of 6 foot high lit letters to many, many weddings, parties and celebrations and our range has grown to include new lighting, such as festoons and Edisons. We understand that your day is yours. You have planned for months and make your choices carefully, and we are meticulous about getting things right for you. Our letters are insured, pat tested and immaculate. You will never see them at odd angles or looking a bit bashed – we want to get it perfect for you and go to great lengths to get it just right. Getting married is a truly joyful time, but it can be a little stressful too, so we are here to help, please just contact us if you have any queries at all, we LOVE to hear from you.

In the midst of our spring Open Weekends!

Another Open Weekend is behind us – the sun shone, the visitors smiled and the tipis looked absolutely beautiful!

The brilliantly talented team of stylists that joined us brought their own interpretations of the ‘rustic-luxe’ theme, and their ideas complemented each others beautifully.  With our old friend Jan from Devon Vintage China, and new acquaintances Natalie from Meadowsweet Vintage and Elle from Inspire Hire (complete with Kate Cullen linen, Oyster & Pearl stationery and a chandelier!), we were surrounded by creativity.

Dressing and styling of the tipis wouldn’t have been complete without the glorious blooms supplied by dear Jess from West Dorset Wedding Flowers by the Poundbury Florist.  From gypsophila to orchids and everything in between, her beautiful floristry complimented the stylist’s work superbly.

The infinitely generous and accommodating South West Event Hire supplied tableware and chairs, and did a fair bit of to-ing and fro-ing for us on set up day – thank you once again Gordon!

Visitors needing advice and ideas on catering were in for a treat with Dartmoor Kitchen in the tipis – fresh from their Wedding Industry Award win.  We were also treated to a selection of mouth watering Tom’s Pies and an enormous carrot cake to keep the team’s energy levels up over the weekend.

All of the tipi loveliness was once again expertly captured by Sarah Lauren Photography (see above), the tipi wedding expert photographer and all round legend! Thank you so much Sarah.

Things would have been somewhat uncomfortable without Premier Luxury Loos, and the plushest facilities available on four wheels – they certainly contributed to the ‘luxe’ element of the weekend, completely dismissing even a hint of rustic!

Finally, on to our goody bags, and this year they were the best yet, packed with offers and samples. With treats from Wed Magazine, The Little Wedding Helper, Oakwood Soaperie, Cloud Nine Marshmallows, Wildflower Favours, Paper Tree and Bespoke Confetti – all our brides to be left with a smile.
