Sail into December with a BANG because the best outdoor wedding show is back for one grand finale before the year is out! Based at the eclectic private house, Anstey Hall in Cambridge the show promises to be brimming with inspiration. With over 40 suppliers and 4 styled areas (a library, ceremony space, marquee and a tipi) there will be so much to experience! Katie Slater of Songbird Weddings and founder of the Rustic Wedding Show said,

“We know that a lot of couples turn their attention to their wedding planning in the winter months so it made sense to do a show around this time to give our couples lots of inspiration ahead of their planning”.

Rally your bridesmaids, your mums, your dads and anyone else who is in your wedding team because it is going to be a good one! The show will have live music, delicious food and quirky bar options along with bridal retailers, photographers and much more. Hands down the best part of the show is the different spaces available to explore and the inspiring efforts of the stylists and florists at the show to bring your wedding day to life.

The aim of the show is to create a fun wedding planning experience and so we ask our exhibitors to step away from their tables and do what they do best!  This show is guaranteed not to disappoint on the fun spectrum as the Rustic Wedding Show organisers have drafted in Grooves Silent Disco to set up a silent disco on the lawn! Here are some sneak peaks of the suppliers you can expect to find at the Rustic Wedding Show, winter edition.


First up, Festival Brides’ own wedding planner feature writer and organiser of the show, Songbird Weddings will be there. Katie will be doing wedding planning talks in the ceremony space and will be giving her top tips on the things you need to think about when planning your wedding.

This show guarantees to let you see all of the options in terms of spaces for your wedding day so that you can compare. The romantic and luxurious spaces inside the house contrast perfectly with the rustic and free spirited nature of the marquee and tipi outside. Cambridge Tent Company will be at their show with their nordic style tents but will happily talk you through tipis versus sailcloths versus stretch tents as they do all three!


We are spoilt for choice at this show with 5 different bridal suppliers ranging from designers of bespoke bridal gowns to boho bridal boutiques.

Styled Areas….

If you missed the April show then you missed this incredible floristry arch which was created in the industrial space by Wild Stems. Fear not however because Cissy will be back at the December show and will be working her magic on our ceremony space.

Outdoor weddings offer the best opportunity to step out of the box with your catering and so we seek out suppliers who offer something a little bit different for the show. We are so excited at this show to have the Norfolk Oystermen joining us. This is a delicious and entertaining way to offer food to your guests. We will also have suppliers of traditional catering options as well as hog roasts at the show.


All the deliciousness in one place, we have two fabulous cake makers at the show who will be displaying the current trends and offering tasting samples. Basically … you get to eat cake … what can go wrong!
