Bestival 2011 starts tomorrow – Thursday 8th – Sunday 11th September 2011 at Robin Hill Countryside Adventure Park near Newport on the Isle of Wight.

This has not been a festival year for Festival Brides, but we intend to be back on the scene next year, taking Festival Brides on the road to the best festivals in the UK. Bestival is definitely on the list. It’s a festival for all, quirky, fun and very free spirited! Here are just a few NEW elements for this year:

We love a spot of boutique camping and this year Bestival has it all in the form of Tipis, Yurts, Squrts, Cloudhouses, Yurtels, PodPads, BellePads and Gypsy Caravans – all available to hire for the weekend (obviously sold out for this year!!) Blue Bell Tents are a festival and wedding supplier who will have their tents at the festival this year. They come in two sizes (sleeping either 2 or 4 people). Their simple, natural design means they’re flooded with light, and spacious enough to make a festival home inside. Extra glamour comes in the form of fairy lights and REAL king size mattresses with sheets – who said camping wasn’t luxurious?? Check out

The Ambient Forest – Get lost in the beautiful woods and stumble upon an array of chilled performance treats and workshops. Experience calm and enlightenment by listening to poetry and a touch of meditation.

The Secret Emporium for some retail and beauty therapy. Discover the most talented milliners, jewellers, fashion designers and artists displaying handpicked goodies for your indulgence. Secret Productions is a bespoke production company that creates imaginative, interactive environments for all types of events including weddings!!! We also love their branding and what they stand for as a business….Check them out

So lots of inspiration to soak up!! We will follow up with another post after Bestival 2011. Can’t wait to go next year!!
