Notes from Fiesta Fields
Couples put so much effort into just one day, it’s unsurprising that the trend for longer celebrations is growing. An outdoor wedding is perfect for an extended party, since tipis/marquees and bell tents are generally up for 3-4 days anyway!
These styled set-ups are to give some inspiration for a wedding weekender. Starting on Friday evening with an outdoor cinema night with popcorn and hotdogs, a Saturday morning scavenger hunt, informal sharing platters, an evening ceremony, pizzas and desserts and a survivors breakfast on Sunday morning.
We live in such a busy world, and a wedding day just flies by, as I’m sure you’ve already heard. A wedding weekender gives more time to spend with friends and family and what better place to do this than in your own patch of idyllic countryside.
We went for a new age boho vibe with macramé, crystals, succulents dreamcatchers and feathers. The wedding dress was actually created in just under 3 days specifically for this shoot by Nortier Shallow based on our brief. We featured real couple Catriona and Angus who recently married for real!
