The second part of the wedding celebration for my lovely couple was to be held in a marquee on a family members property. The vibe was to be a less formal occasion than their wedding. It was to be a fun celebration that was titled ‘WedFest’. All the guest were given a wristband and encouraged to pitch their tents and dance until dawn, with the promise of a cooked breakfast on the Sunday morning.
in the run up to the wedding the weather had been drizzly and grey all week, but on the Saturday the sun had his hat on and it was stunning. There were spectacular views over the Sussex hills. The marquee was beautiful, it was festooned with coloured streamers and bunting. There were gift bags full of toys and treats for all the children. There was food to suit everyone, a hog roast, pizza van and cheese table, as well as an ice-cream van, several cakes and a sweet cart. in addition there was a cocktail bar.
As the weather was so beautiful, outside the marquee were other tables and chairs as well as sofas. There was a bouncy castle, giant jenga and other games, as well as space hoppers and hula hoops. It really had a festival feel about it.
The music accompaniment was several acts throughout the evening, like a music festival. The first on the line-up was a relaxed jazz band with smooth tunes, then if your bridesmaid is a singer, it would be rude to not have her perform, following them was an amazing band that performed and when they were on a break there was a Dj set. The evening then continued into the night with dance music and sparklers. It was such a fun wedding celebration to be a part of. I think the couple had thought of everything, the details were fantastic, even down to beautiful flower crowns for the ladies. It was a wonderful fun event to be a part of.
