Planning a Festival Wedding

Are you looking to have a wedding with a difference? Have you ever thought about holding a festival wedding? Festival-style weddings have been growing in popularity and are set to be a huge trend for 2018. From the music and camping to DIY flower crowns and fun party food, it can be a fun, relaxed and unique way of celebrating your special day.

Festivals in the UK are hugely popular events that celebrate music, food and culture. Many couples are opting to stretch their celebration out over a whole weekend to soak up the live music and delicious food along with copious amount of drink and laughter! Of course, this allows couples to make the most of their tipi too! 

To help set the scene for what your festival wedding could entail, here’s our guide to planning a festival wedding.

A perfect venue that can accommodate 50-350 guests. A tipi is a completely blank canvas which allows you to create the space you have always dreamed of. A tipi is an intimate, warm and friendly space that offers plenty of room to dance through till the early hours. Located in the great outdoors you are already in the perfect festival setting and have plenty of outdoor space to enjoy.
