We exhibited at The Unconventional Wedding Festival for couples looking for unique, eclectic, creative, quirky and alternative wedding inspiration.
The wedding festival was held in the stunning and picturesque grounds of Stanford Hall Estate a Grade 1 listed House nestled on the banks of the River Avon in the heart of the Midlands picturesque countryside.
Stanford Hall Estate is truly a glorious place, with 700 acres of ancient parkland, birds singing, towering green mature trees and a long driveway, a wonderful wedding venue for either a stately occasion or a free spirited or festival tipi celebration or blessing.
At the Unconventional Wedding Festival at Stanford Hall Estate, there were many different types of unique and wonderful outdoor wedding structures from fabulous tipis, alternative wedding marquees and bell tents with different themed and styled zones for alternative and creative wedding inspiration.
The festival tipi zone was really impressive, all the suppliers including ourselves worked really hard to make it a success, including the talented wedding stylists, the fabulous floral design, the amazing body & face painters, the show-stopping neon sign creator, the creative cake designer, the fantastic cheese cake cart, the lovely light-up love letters, the hand-made stationary company, the awesome outside drinks bar, the cool food van, the super Photo Booth, slumber party tents, the alternative hand painted jackets, the fun crazy golf and of course the amazing tipi itself, all of which made our zone welcoming and a stunning, stylish, relaxing and friendly place for couples to visit.
We set up our own mini consultation and seating area, a comfy vintage chesterfield chair, a bright yellow retro chair, a copper based table, a copper backdrop with lots of colourful ribbons and kiko frames, a Bowie frame, neon signs, our wild black mannequin lamp, lots of colourful rugs on the floor with happy retro cushions for people to sit and relax and look through our new luxury wedding albums.
There were lots of different zones from festival vibe zone, bohemian spirit, fantasy, sci-fi, urban chic, vintage, Arabian nights, fairytale, VIP, a style, inspiration & emporium, a pop up hotel & a tropical chill out zone.
Colourful, unique and alternative food & drinks vans, horse boxes & buses, fantastic ideas for eclectic, quirky and creative weddings, or outdoor and tipi weddings were setup around the estate grounds and enjoyed by visitors in the sunshine.
Most of the zones had awesome photo-booths too, from caravan photo booths, to horse box photo booths to amazing vintage camper van photo booths. Nearly all the zones had at least one photographer exhibiting too, so there was lots of choice for photography companies at the show.
It was a year in the planning with the Unconventional Wedding group and other suppliers, with both of us attending five networking and planning meetings towards the event. It was wonderful to see all the suppliers pulling together to help get everything finished for the weekend.
If you are a couple still in search of a documentary wedding photographer with an edgy, alternative and creative style and a relaxed, friendly and unobtrusive approach, then we would love to hear from you.
