Festival Brides Love: World Inspired Tents

Festival Brides Love: World Inspired Tents

We are very pleased to be sharing with you a Q&A today with World Inspired Tents, the first ever tipi company that we came across when we started Festival Brides, way back in 2011, and also one of the first tipi companies to ever exist in the UK. Yep, these guys kicked of the tipi wedding trend 11 years ago now and have firmly placed themselves in the wedding industry as one of the best in the business. Having worked with them many times before, we can’t recommend them enough. Their excellent customer service makes them such a pleasure to deal with and their experience with wedding tipis and how to make the best of them at all types of weddings is second to none. With bases in both Devon and Bristol, World Inspired Tents can supply most of the UK so if you are looking for a tipi company, definitely note these guys down!

Outdoor weddings in the UK | A Guest Post By Elmore Court

Outdoor weddings in the UK | A Guest Post By Elmore Court

Outdoor weddings in the UK have long had frustrating legal requirements attached to them. You cannot perform a legally binding wedding ceremony outside unless it is held under a permanent structure large enough to house the couple, registrar and witness underneath it. However, with the recent 2018 budget announcement, things are set to change on this restrictive law. Whilst we all wait with bated breath to see what these changes will be, Elmore Court are sharing with us their favourite outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions held in their beautiful grounds….

Boho Bliss | Natasha and Oli’s Botanical Farm Wedding in Somerset

Hello beauties and welcome to another gorge real wedding here on the blog. Whatever the weekend held for you, I hope you had time to relax, chill and feel the love! Today we take you to the pretty Folly Farm which is nestled in the green south west fields of Somerset. Natasha and Oli held a super-chilled, outdoor bohemian wedding at the farm with a converted barn reception area, camping for their guests and an old dairy farm adding to the rural ambiance of the day. Surrounded by apple trees, wildflowers, cute little piggies and to-die-for views, the pair tied the knot in a short and sweet ceremony followed by an epic after-party.

Wedding Inspiration

Berry Reds | An Autumn Inspired Elopement Shoot….

We have a beautiful elopement shoot to share with you all today, filled with romance, love, beauty and the red berry colours of Christmas. Captured by Grace Pham Photography at Tower Hamlets Cemetery on a beautiful sunny day in Autumn, this shoot explores the elopement trend, the beauty of a secluded setting and subtle bohemian styling vibes. We love the flower crown by Greta Zanda with the peach roses taking center stage and we also love the movement of the wedding dress from Lisa Lyons Bridal – the spin of the skirt is gorgeous and looks so pretty against the woodland backdrop.

Festival Brides Love

Festival Brides Love: The Three Cockerels Mobile Bar For Weddings & Events

One of the things I love the most about writing Festival Brides is that I get to introduce you to the coolest wedding suppliers. Suppliers that are packed full of personality, have a huge passion for what they do and are perfectly suited to an outdoor festival wedding. Suppliers like The Three Cockerels Mobile Bar! This beautifully designed rustic bar is the brain child of Rob, James and Matt – three guys from Hampshire who decided to build their own bar and combine their passion for beer with their love for having a good time. Unlike most traditional mobile bars, The Three Cockerels mobile bar is designed with space in mind and therefore has the same sized bar as most country pubs. The worst thing at a wedding is queuing for a drink because the bar can only take 3 people at a time but with The Three Cockerels Bar, this will not be a problem! You and your guests will have plenty of space to spread out whilst waiting to be served. They also offer a bespoke bar service with beer and cider on draught, real ale from the cask and large fridge capacity for all of the wine and mixers of your choice….

Bohemian Romance | Rachael and Chris’ Rustic Macramé Barn Wedding in South Wales

Today’s real wedding is a blissfully rustic, pretty summer wedding held in one of the most beautiful locations that South Wales has to offer – Rosedew Farm in Llantwit Major. I’m from this beautiful part of Wales myself, and I’ve had friends marry at this gorgeous barn; so I was thrilled when Rachael got in touch to share her wedding with us. Her inspiration was boho beach, garden roses, pastel pinks, endless fairy lights and lots of greenery. We absolutely love the relaxed vibe of this pretty, macramé draped wedding….
