The biggest change in weddings in the last five years has been in venues. Back in the day, you hired a big country house hotel and / or a marquee. Now it seems half of our weddings in the UK are in barns and fields – and I LOVE that! It gives you so much more creative freedom to style your day – and fits perfectly with three MAJOR wedding styles: barn weddings, festival weddings and tipi weddings.
I’ve worked with some fabulous planners and stylists who really come into their own for planning ‘blank canvas’ weddings – and one thing I’ve learned is that logistics is a pretty big deal. You need to hire everything from loos to generators, flooring to hay bales and benches for your wedding guests.
Often tipi and marquee companies can help. And sometimes you just stumble across a brilliant idea on Pinterest which fits perfectly with your relaxed wedding style!
