Sunset Meets Festival Vibes in Melbourne

Two Ton Max in North Melbourne was the perfect blank canvas for our friends at Good Day Club to unleash all the festival party vibes for Becky and Gearóid’s wedding day! The couple met at a music festival, but instead of the usual tipi and field theme for their day, they chose beautiful relaxed sunset vibes moving into a dark, neon-filled party night.

Becky wore a custom top by Coralie Newman with a skirt by BHLDN for their ceremony, changing into a dress by the same brand for the reception. She paired them with jewellery by small businesses and the bridesmaids chose their own dresses.

Garden Party Meets Festival Wedding with a Pirate Hour, Dinosaurs & a Conga Ceremony Exit!

Matt and Jo turned their July wedding into a full day-long festival, that they just happened to also get married at! “We basically wanted to put on a festival for all our friends and family to enjoy,” said Jo, “and to make it as easy as possible for people to attend and have a nice time. We especially wanted to tap into the idea that with festivals, there are always multiple things going on at once; we weren’t very keen on having all eyes on us all day so we wanted there to be lots to do to counteract the overwhelm!”

To bring this to life they had multiple zones: The Barth, a BYOB bar complete with ice-filled bath tubs to store their drink and sofas and board games for people to enjoy, a Silly Clobber tent for their guests to get in the festival spirit, a Kidzone and Baby Chill area (filled with toys, colouring mats and space hoppers), a Woodland chill-out area with fire-pits and fairy lights, as well as their ceremony and main marquee areas. No festival would be complete without a live music lineup, too; they had a Ceilidh band to go with their ‘pirate hour’ (as you do), a ska band, a DJ and a silent disco.

Botanical & Animal Inspired Welsh Wedding with a Sequin Bridal Cape!

Mirain and Jak were introduced by a mutual friend who was fed up of them both making bad relationship choices! “He knew we were both going to the same festival in a few weeks, and started a WhatsApp group for us… then left us to it!” explained Mirain. “I can honestly say that I’d fallen for Jak before we even got to the festival. He moved in with me the following weekend!”

They used the festival to set the tone for their day – for it not to be ‘weddingy’, to focus on fun and for things to be a little bit different. The most important thing for Mirain was to celebrate everyone in the room. “I wanted it to be a gesture of my gratitude to all of these wonderful people who had stuck with us through the good times and the bad times, and who had got us both to where we were that day.”

Come As You Are: A Colourful, Fun, Relaxed Festival Wedding

After 17 years together, Chris and Sammy made sure that when they did finally decide to tie the knot, they were going to do things their way! The main inspiration for their day was how they didn’t want their guests to feel constrained by convention or pressured to spend lots of money coming to their wedding, so ‘come as you are’ was an overriding thought. After that, they focused on a colourful festival vibe – they used to go to the Big Chill Festival when it was still running so they wanted their wedding to capture the spirit and feeling of the fond memories they have from there.

They tried to make their day as relaxed as possible, for all of their guests, big and small, “We wanted to make sure that our friends who brought their kids could relax as well, so making sure the kids had loads to do and had a safe place to play and let off steam was one of our priorities,” explained Sammy. “Also, we didn’t want to cost people loads to come along, we just wanted them to be there, so we chose a venue that would allow people to camp if they wanted to.”

Bohemian-Chic Three-Day Wedding in the South of France

Steph and Phil wanted plenty of festival spirit for their summer wedding and judging by their photos, they achieved just that! Spread across three days, with a formal ceremony on the Friday followed by a big outdoor party on the weekend, with a nod to both the bride and groom’s Jewish and Catholic roots in their ceremony and plenty of bohemian flair.

As Steph works as a fashion designer, she called on her own expertise to not only dress herself and her bridesmaids in her own label, but also to pull together all the decor and props – with plenty of macrame, wicker and rugs, they worked with the natural environment and pulled in succulents, fairy lights strewn through trees and stars made from canes and flowers. They hung tea lights in glass jars, vintage picture frames as a photo booth, and provided guests with light up flower crowns to take the party way into the night.

Smallwoodstock: Festival Meets Summer Fête Wedding with Fun For All the Family

Louise and Gaz were inspired by the fun times they had going to Reading festival together in their 20s when it came to planning their summer wedding. They also wanted as un-wedding like wedding as possible; having been to all the stereotypical weddings over the years, they were determined to have the absolute opposite. 

And that’s how Smallwoodstock was born! They originally considered having a low-key register office ceremony, but having waited 18 years to finally tie the knot, they wanted a day that their family could remember; “And at our age, there’s not that many excuses for a big party,” said Louise, “you tend to see people at funerals not weddings haha!”
