Good afternoon lovely people. I hope you are all fully recovered from what was an awesome bank holiday weekend. My goodness do I love the sun! Honestly, I have spent the weekend smiling away at the sunshine and day dreaming about what an amazing summer it’s going to be. Did you get married at the weekend? Are you still buzzing from your wedding high!? Please do let us know if you got married as we would love to hear from you. It was actually my 5 year anniversary on the 4th May so Bob and I spent the weekend reminiscing about what an incredible weekend we had. We might have cracked open a bottle of champagne or two as well! It was just so nice to take a break from our stupidly busy lives and remember the day in all it’s glory. So much has happened since we got married yet our wedding weekend seems like only yesterday. I can still remember so clearly the way I felt walking down the aisle and seeing Bob’s face. It was just epic on every possible scale.
We have an awesome, glitter inspired styled shoot to share with your sun kissed faces this morning, put together by the fabulous ladies of Cambridge Glitter Bar. They wanted to create the perfect same sex wedding shoot featuring their cool and quirky glitter bar and some amazing local festival wedding suppliers. In fact, Horsley Hale Farm, the venue where the shoot took place, is a member of our festival wedding directory and has been for years proving they are the perfect fit for an outdoor festival wedding.
This colourful shoot, which includes gorgeous wedding decor ideas, a rainbow wedding cake and some lovely wedding stationery dusted in gold leaf, was inspired by the colours of the rainbow and the laid back vibes of a festival…..
Our fabulous festival wedding suppliers lovingly styled out the amazing Horsley Hale Farm with great pops of colour with a real laid back festival vibe. We envisaged the perfect same sex wedding which invoked all the colours of the rainbow from our cake, flowers, table décor down to our unique face glitters.
If you are looking for festival wedding suppliers then you may have just hit the jackpot with this styled shoot as it is jam packed with them! I for one may be booking the gin bar (yes this shoot includes a very quirky looking gin bar) just to pitch up in my back garden for a week – now what a wonderful thought that is!
Ali and Kerry, the ladies behind Cambridge Glitter Bar, talk us through the shoot and all the wonderful suppliers involved.
A Colourful Same Sex Glitter Shoot at a Beautiful Cambridgeshire Lake….
Words by Ali and Kerry at Cambridge Glitter Bar
Our fabulous festival wedding suppliers lovingly styled out this amazing venue with great pops of colour with a real laid back festival vibe. We envisaged the perfect same sex wedding which invoked all the colours of the rainbow from our cake, flowers, table décor down to or unique face glitters.
We wanted to include all the farm animals, as it is their home along with the beautiful calming lake. Vanessa from Rocks and Frocks wedding and event designs kicked off the bright morning dressing out the tipi’s with flamingos and rich rustic rocking chairs for our brides to relax on. The table was set within the enchanting orchard on solid oak, dressed with rich blues, mustard yellows, pinks greens and vibrant reds, along with lovingly designed table stationary provided by Dorothy’s Workshop, and stunning glass wear supplied by Gemma at The White Emporium.
Bold and Beautiful Rainbow Cake and Flower Wall Backdrop
Kirsty from Oh My Cakery baked a fresh rainbow wedding cake, celebrating all the Gay Pride flag colours, along with a colourful glitter doughnut wall which stood just perfectly within the stables at Horsley Hale Farm, and complimented the beautiful flower wall from Natasha at Ferris Heart Sloane who provide these gorgeous backdrops in an array of colours for wedding and events.
Gin Cocktails, Glitter and Car Races
More fun was to be had around the stables when Andy in the Gin Van arrived from Banquet Inn serving delicious gin cocktails, which had the farm animals gather to see the fun!
Once Ali and Kerry from Cambridge Glitter Bar had finished applying all the sparkly biodegradable body glitters and jewels, the girls head down to the farm entrance where they met with a stunning series 2 Land Rover, supplied by Elliot at Cambridge Wedding Cars to have a race around the estate.
Fun and Frolics on the Lake!
The lake Jetty was dressed with a floral moon gate by Becky from Feather and Ferns, and gnarly hay bales to create the perfect back drop for photos by the lake, whilst the couple splashed their feet in the water. Photographer Damien from Damien Vickers Photography, along with talented videographer Rachel from Veiled Productions, raced to the edge of the lake to get into one of the pedalos which the couple had started peddling around the lake, to capture all the fun and action!
The day was finished with some woodland shots in the Orchard, surrounded deep with farm animals and glittery lighting high in the tree’s and a toast to the happy couple who blew bubbles and glitter in celebration.
