Clare 1

Last week we mentioned we had a new addition to the Festival Brides family……..the lovely Clare Pattinson who is now in full control of our Instagram and Pinterest pages and is creating quite an inspirational storm!

We thought it was only right that we introduced you to her properly so you can meet the girl who is transforming our IG feed into something cool, quirky and wonderful. We are so excited to be welcoming Clare to the team – we have a feeling she’s going to be doing great things for Festival Brides! #Watchthisspace!

Clare, along with her husband Jack, has put together a little video for you so please leave her some love in the comments box below peeps!

Oh and be warned…….you may have a bit of a girl crush after reading this!

Meet Clare:

Hailing from a countryside village in Leicestershire, I’m Clare and just 2 months ago, I was a Festival Bride.

Not one for doing things the way people expect, at 16 I hooked up with my best mate (the forbidden territory, yes), at 22 we designed my engagement ring together and in September of this year we planned our wedding in just 9 weeks. Call me crazy, but I’ve never been happier!

I love to buck the trend, keep everyone on their toes and ultimately inspire people to do it their way.

Clare 4

I’m a girl that longboards, a occasional singer, an IG addict, a distance runner + mama to the sweetest pointer called Rupert.

In no particular order these are the things that float my boat: messy hair, tiny tattoos, a walk on a crisp Autumn day, grey baggy tshirts, yoga, a fresh manicure, Jimmy’s iced coffee (if you haven’t tried it, oh my gosh, you must), Ben Howard live, jeans that’ve ripped naturally and champagne in the bath, oh yes!

Where would I most like to visit?


Which festival am I gagging to go to next year?

In the Woods

What am I listening to right now?

The Majestic Casual Collection, Chapter I. Think Flume, Bondax and a smooth Ellie Goulding cover of Alt J

What are my favourite IG feeds?

What you mean aside from @festivalbrides? Easy, @ascotfriday, @jenlovescove + @paigejonesphoto

Favourite trend right now?

Plaid plaid and more plaid

So that’s me! I’ll be sharing on Instagram and blogging my little heart out for Festival Brides from here on in, hoping to inspire and share some awesome stuff with y’all.
