Happy Friday Peeps!
Oh do we have a wedding fair treat for you today! For those of you planning a festival wedding, this is one wedding fair you do not want to miss……….
On Saturday 12th May at 11am, Sparkford Hall, a stunning new Somerset venue located in 23 acres of beautiful parkland, is playing host to a very cool and very alternative FESTIVAL wedding fair.
Now, we’re not talking about your usual traditional wedding fair; we’re not even talking about an alternative wedding fair! No, this my lovelies is 100% festival related through and through and promises to be an event that’s full to the brim with festival wedding suppliers and inspiration.
The organisers of the show, the lovely Laleh from Potent Productions and the very cool James from Over The Moon Tents, wanted to create a wedding fair that allowed couples to experience their event planning services first hand, as well as bring together the festival and wedding industry.
The exhibiton, set up like an actual festival, will give couples the opportunity to explore the very best in festival wedding suppliers such as the fabulous canvas creations from Over The Moon Tents; stylish venue dressing by A Different World and Crescent Moon; awesome festival flags from Alice Fields; fancy dress hire by the amazing Krumble Empire; air inflatables by Designs in Air; uber cool glamping tents from Blue Bell Tents………I could go on!
There will be the opportunity to meet some amazing wedding/festival caterers that offer unique alternatives to your more traditional wedding breakfast. The Beggars Banquet Music Cafe, a regular on the festival scene, will be providing delicious food throughout the event and their ‘mobile’ banquet is available for wedding hire. In the ‘pizza tent’ you can even make your own wood-fired pizza which is an excellent idea for a festival wedding and something your guests will be talking about for years to come!
Of course, no festival is complete without entertainment and Laleh and James have invited the festival crème de la crème to perform at the event. DJ’s will be warming up their turn tables with this summer’s festival tunes and there will also be circus acts, trapeze artists and storytelling performed by the inspirational Whispering Wood Folk. All of these acts and more will be available to book for your festival wedding.
This event promises to illustrate what south-west festival suppliers can offer wedding couples in planning their special day. They will be showcasing the latest styles and trends that the UK’s vibrant outdoor festival culture is taking into the wedding industry. All suppliers exhibiting have worked at some of the UK’s best festivals like Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Lovebox, Glade, Big Chill & Bestival – you do not want to miss this people!
Oh did I mention that we will be there too!? Yes, Kelly and I will be on hand to talk all things festival weddings and we are MEGA excited about being part of such an awesome event.
