It’s no secret that planning a Festival Wedding is no mean feat. The idea of creating your own mini Glastonbury is a brilliant one but the reality of pulling it altogether, especially if you want to truly replicate a proper music festival, can be for some a daunting task. There is a hell of a lot to think about and if you lead a busy life or work all the hours under the sun, you may not have the time to do everything yourself.

Wouldn’t it be nice to call on a company who can do it all for you?

A festival style wedding from Festival in a Box is an opportunity to do it differently.

The couples that come to us have a multitude of different reasons why they want a festival style wedding. But all have one thing in common: a desire to step away from the perceived norm and have a day that’s different, totally tailor made and one that everyone, not just the bride and groom, will remember forever.

We have a comprehensive database of venues across the country – from secret cliff tops in Cornwall to your very own patch of Somerset countryside so you can recreate your favourite bit of Glastonbury in a setting that is perfect for you.

With unprecedented access to the finest agents and touring bands around we source the best in entertainment and live music whatever your taste might be.  Our eclectic styling and spectacular showmanship guarantee that each of our events are totally personal and unique.

Festival in a Box weddings are all inclusive.  No need to limit your numbers.  It’s a perfect solution to keeping everyone happy.  Invite all those friends of your parents that you haven’t seen for years!

Alternatively, a festival style party is a great way to spend quality time with those friends you haven’t seen for ages – no need to ask your cash strapped friends to cough up for an exclusive country house hotel if they are able to bring their own tent!

Let us set up luxurious camps for your nearest and dearest – after all, the mother of the bride really cannot be expected to sleep in a two man tent. What about a stunning gypsy caravan for the happy couple? Or a yurt fully equipped with king sized double bed with Egyptian cotton bedding along with Persian rugs and lanterns.

Greet your guests with roaming street style entertainment as they make their way to the bar after settling into their tents. 

Festival food stalls from all around the world and communal eating with long wooden tables and ad hoc seating certainly removes the need for a seating plan and gives everyone something to remember.

Secret bars can be a lot of fun.  What about a frozen vodka bar, hidden away in the woods – half the fun is finding it!  

Festival weddings don’t have to be all white dresses and wellies.  Put your mind at ease about the weather. We have access to stunning vintage big top tents – perfect for an indoor, outdoor event.

We keep younger guests happy too:

For the little ones why not let them curl up in the softest blankets on vintage sofas watching puppet shows and listening to stories under the watchful eye of our registered child minders in their own tipi allowing your friends a night off to let down their hair.  

Fete style games and treasure hunts throughout the day keep everyone amused or what about a circus skills workshop for children (of all ages!)

And for when the fireworks are over and the bonfires have turned to glowing embers and some of your guests have run out of steam, let them head for bed whilst those who want to can dance the night away at the silent disco until dawn.

There is something special and symbolic about raising a glass of chilled champagne to toast the newly weds as the new day dawns over misty fields with friends and family looking out over your very own festival site.

Festival in a Box weddings cost upwards of £25,000 for an overnight festival style wedding party. For more details on what this includes or to discuss your specific requirement please contact them or visit their website.
