PapaKata Open Day (129)

Afternoon Lovely Peeps,

The wonderful team at PapaKåta have been busy predicting next season’s top wedding trends and we have them all to share with you today. These guys have done quite a few weddings in their time, including many festival ones, so if anyone knows what sort of trends are going to be big in 2016 it will be them.

Amanda Monaghan, Owner of PapaKåta, shares her thoughts on what she expects to be big in 2016.

Trend: Experiential

The desire for experience is a huge trend, and being part of a shared experience can be worth more than anything money can buy. ?More and more, our couples want to invite their friends and family into their world for a day, or wedding weekend.

We’ve loved a seaside wedding where guests took a dip in the sea together, a festival wedding with guests chilling in their own boutique camping area complete with Swedish hot tubs, and guests marching along with a brass band and riding a vintage carousel.

Weddings at Soho Farmhouse, who we’re delighted to be exclusively supplying Sperry Tents to, are a complete 24-hour immersive experience, with guests entertained with horse riding and swimming in the alfresco infinity pool before and after the wedding celebrations.

Trend: Hometown glory

Weddings that tell your story are big news and we love it when couples bring in elements of their hometown to their wedding day.

A romantic Sperry Tent reception with a day filled with African touches, bespoke flags and flowing curtains, trans-Atlantic unions with cute flags and nostalgic food choices like a milk and cookies “cake”, and a Yorkshire allotment wedding complete with edible veggie plot platters, have really warmed our hearts.
