10 Ways to Make Life Lovely | the Heat of the Solstice

Today’s 10 Ways to Make Life Lovely is all about relishing the warmth of Summer, and passionately embracing this sunniest of seasons. You’ll find us making the most of warmer nights, staying out late star gazing, we’re also sharing our fave ways to embrace the heat (think DIY outdoor pools, divine linen bedding and healthy iced fruit snacks!) and we’re taking a look at the concept of sound meditation to heal, restore and rejuvenate, as is traditional around the time of the Solstice.

Zoe and Daniel’s Chic Bohemian DIY Wedding

Zoe and Daniel’s Chic Bohemian DIY Wedding

Some of the most aspirational weddings to feature on Festival Brides are often the most simplistically inspired. This wedding is so beautifully bohemian it makes us wish to re-plan our weddings all over! The talented Grace Elizabeth Phtography has, once again, captured the essence of a wedding so pure it’s impossible not to get taken by the beauty of it. Zoe and Daniel’s ethereal wedding took place at the Blackfriars Priory in Gloucester, boasting a blank canvas so perfect, it gracefully offered itself as the chic, classical wedding venue that Zoe dreamed of. With hours upon hours spent hand-crafting candles, draping hand-picked garden greenery and delicately adorning the space with intricate DIY décor, this bride had a clear vision for the day.

Simone and Steven’s Whimsical Festival and Glamping Destination Wedding

We love a destination wedding here at Festival Brides and this one is absolutely no exception! Simone and Steven celebrated their wedding at Kampeerterrein de Lievelinge in the Netherlands last summer with a festival, fairy-tale style wedding captured by the masterful Renate van Djik at Wit Photography.  The couple ‘glamped’ it up with over 150 guests during this extraordinary 3-day celebration which featured a vintage spiegeltent (a 19th-century European mirror tent), a rustic blue VW bus and scrumptious Italian-style woodoven pizzas. An impressive fusion of authentic and modern European styling with a truly captivating vibe, this destination wedding certainly paints a very pretty picture…
