THESE COLOURFUL FESTIVAL WEDDING IDEAS ARE PERFECT FOR AN OUTDOOR SUMMER WEDDING!
Having photographed several weddings at Wellbeing Farm, photographer Jules Fortune knows the venue well and knew it would be the perfect venue for todays bright and colourful, fun festival styled shoot. With beautiful rolling fields & hills as a backdrop, Wellbeing Farm is perfect for a festival wedding, set in the middle of nowhere!
“My wedding photography is all about being joyful, natural & colourful, so I wanted to incorporate that vibe on a grander and louder scale – which is how this styled shoot became this festive, boho themed shoot. Couples that book me to photograph their wedding, want to show their individuality and be themselves rather than following a crowd or trend. The bold colour theme was an opportunity to highlight this. Although this wedding was bolder than most weddings I must admit!” Photographer, Jules told us.
“I left the suppliers to their own creative visions. The suppliers would send me photos or sketches of their ideas, so we were all in loop with how it was coming together before the actual day. I knew that Karen from The Little Green Platter Company would provide something unique and colourful and was delighted when she designed her stunning watermelon fruit platter for the shoot. Spencer from the Bubbly Campervan hire brought the ever so chic Billy Jean camper van and his new addition the retro scooter, which were ideally suited to the festive theme. Antha Events brought their awesome neon angel and balloon arch whilst, Earth Links provided the beautiful earrings & headbands. Amore Styling dressed our trestle table with bright flowers & tableware and designed the beautiful ribbon backdrop too, which I loved.”
“Amanda our Celebrant got in touch with Moira our model before the shoot and together they created some vows that her partner Taidgh and herself would say to each other. It was so beautiful and created some real emotion. It felt like a real wedding! Amanda also made some bright hand ties especially for the shoot which was a nice touch.” She added.
“Jayne at Foxglove Brides totally got the brief and picked the two-piece outfit which I thought was perfect. I have not seen anything like it before and it is a bold choice but ideal for our theme. I loved those sleeves too. Vanessa & Conor at Bridgewater menswear were amazing too. I wanted a plain coloured suit, so the dark red was perfect. Bird & Bone provided our cool personalise leather jackets, which looked fantastic &kept our model warm!” Jules explained.
“Remi & Lily provided the stunning Hair & Make up. They chose a relaxed and romantic style with loose curls and a fishtail plait to one side to give detail and soft pink hues for the makeup with a pop of bright pink on the lips to introduce colour. This look is perfect for the bride who is not afraid of a little colour and who wants to bring their personality to their hair and makeup look for their big day. For the second look we changed the lip to a gorgeous classic red and then brought the festival vibes with our gold glitter and stars design. Perfect for the bride who is ready to dance the night away.”
“Our Model Moira & Taidgh are a real couple, so their chemistry was off the scale, it was so fun working with these two.”
“This style of wedding is my personal dream to photography! I just love that there is nothing formal about it. It is so relaxed, full of laughter, fun, good times, and colour! To me that is wedding day perfection.”
“Bringing in specialist suppliers that will get creative for you will help you achieve the look and feel you want. Whether it is a festive feel – colourful – boho – party vibes. I know not every bride may not want so much colour, but the idea can be used with different colour palettes maybe even seasonal – autumnal or spring vibes.”
