Hannah's Festival Style Wedding

Festival-style weddings are becoming increasingly popular, as couples look for ways to create a unique and memorable wedding day that reflects their personalities. If you're dreaming of a wedding that is full of fun, laughter, and good vibes, then take some inspiration from Hannah’s quirky and colourful festival-style wedding.

Festival Style Wedding

I love the fact that almost everything at Hannah’s wedding was homemade by Hannah, friends and family. By putting the work into making things herself Hannah was able to create something truly unique whilst saving a lot of money on costs.

When planning a festival style wedding, the venue is everything. You'll want to choose a space that's large enough to accommodate your guests and has a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere. Some popular options include outdoor venues like fields and parks, as well as indoor venues like tipis, barns and warehouses.

How to create a festival atmosphere.

Once you've chosen your venue, it's time to start creating a festival atmosphere. This can be done with things like colourful tents and tipis, glitter bars, fairy lights, lanterns, and bunting. You can also set up chill-out areas with beanbags, hay bales and rugs. Hannah chose hay bales for seating at her wedding which added a great touch, these were borrowed from a local farm and saved her money on chair hire costs.

Hannah's flowers were so pretty and colourful and all came from the gardens of her parents, friends and relatives. Hannah’s mother took a flower arranging course prior to the wedding and made all of the flower arragements herself with a little help from a neighbour. Milk churns were borrowed from a local farm and they used colourful gin bottles for vases.

Festival Wedding Entertainment


No festival wedding would be complete without entertainment, so make sure to book some great bands or DJs to keep your guests dancing all night long. You can also hire other performers, such as glitter makeup artists, fire-eaters, jugglers, and acrobats, to add to the festive atmosphere. Hannah had lots of fun lawn games such as rounders which went down a treat with the guests.

Encourage your guests to dress up.

One of the best things about a festival style weddings is that there's no dress code. Encourage your guests to let their imaginations run wild and wear their most fun, colourful and funky outfits. You can even set up a photo booth with props for your guests to use. I am loving the quirky sunglasses that Hannah provided for her guests, they look so good in the photos.

Plan for all types of weather.

Festival-style weddings are often held outdoors, so it's important to have a backup plan in case of bad weather. You could hire a tent, tipi or marquee to protect your guests from the elements, and provide umbrellas and ponchos in case it starts to rain.

If you are providing a glamping area with camping tents for the guests think about adding little touches, such as scented candles, eye masks and ear plugs for the guests to use.

When booking a photographer to capture your special day check out their portfolio and make sure their style of photography has a fun, relaxed vibe. Hannah used Rachel Burt Photography to capture her special day and I think she has done a truly amazing job. You can check out Rachels photography page by clicking this link.

Here are a few more gorgeous pictures from the day.

And last of all a close up picture of the beautiful bride herself.
