Festival weddings aren’t going anywhere, which makes me very happy indeed! I mean, what could be better than hanging out in the sunshine, listening to your favourite music and dancing late into the night?!

Becs and Chris were married at The Winter Garden at Sennowe Park, Norfolk. They hosted their reception in a tipi on the bride’s parent’s farm. “We always said that when we got married we wanted a festival feel”, said the bride. “Festival for us meant relaxed vibes, happy music and street food! We love food and that was pretty much the most important bit for us. We got Manjit and Fish& to drive down from Leeds because we love their award-winning food so much! I guess it’s quite unusual to have Gujarati food at a non-Indian wedding but we love curry and Manjit’s is incredible. As is Fish& – we had three types batters for our fish pieces! Trumpet & Crumpet provided amazing canapés and delicious British desserts for us.”

“Since the farm is reasonably remote, we let people camp over in one of the fields too”, she continued. “We also had my mum doing the ceremony which made it pretty unique – not many people can say their mum married them! My mum became a registrar when I was one and it had been my dream to have my mum do my wedding ever since then!”

Becs’ gorgeous dress came from White Rose Bridal and she added the sleeves to the original design. She wore is with customised pearl beaded Converse which she had made by Everything Sparkles. “Both me and my bridesmaids wore beaded customised Converse. Since the reception was on grass and we’re sensible girls we wanted to be comfortable and a bit different. We loved them!”

In terms of décor, the couple did most of it themselves with help from family and friends. “Since I grew up on the farm, I wanted to incorporate that part of my life into the day”. she said. “So we took the guests on a tractor and trailer ride! They absolutely loved it. We decorated the sides with huge vinyl banners with our wedding details one. We also called the wedding #wedfest2015 and got wristbands made instead of giving favours.”

“We made the wooden signs ourselves. We really pleased how they turned out. I baked the cakes (one tier gluten free sponge, one tier carrot, one tier german chocolate) and my mum did all the decorating including the sugar craft and lace. She is very talented. Mum and her friend also did the flowers in the bike basket and just outside the tipi.”

“The tipi hire was the most expensive thing, but we saved money by calling in lots of favours with talented and creative friends so a few things were cheaper. But we probably saved most on the invites and signs by designing them ourselves. The signs would probably have been £30-£40 each if we’d had them done professionally. We made them for just a few pounds each. Also my bridesmaid dresses were Miss Selfridge and they were only £55 each.”

    I think we might have had the best suppliers for our wedding ever. From happy days campers who saved our butt when a less than reputable company let us down (Happy Days were an absolute pleasure to work with and their van is truly beautiful, I think I love her) to our very talented cake makers, dress makers, accessory makers and beautifiers . Every one shared our passion and vision and wanted to make our day special. If you’re someone who loves what you do it shows in your work and it really shows in all of theirs. Then there is Laura… Laura was recommended to us by our sister Alexa who is another amazingly talented wedding photographer. Laura is very talented as you can see. She goes the extra mile to get to know her clients and produce something she knows they will love. Laura was a complete pleasure to work with and has given us such an amazing gift of capturing our day beautifully. Thank you everyone and Thank you Kat for giving us this extra memory to show our grandchildren one day. Beautifully written and presented xxx

  11. So colourful! Nice to see the table plan I designed for you guys in such a fun setting. 😀 I hope you had a brilliant day (the photos certainly make it look like you did)!
