From start to finish, Steph and Rob’s wedding on a beautiful sunny day last May was a fun, laid back affair, and they were keen for this to continue for their entire day.  From their festival-themed invitations and wedding signs, to the pastel coloured bridesmaid’s dresses and the flowers in Steph’s hair, a festival feel was apparent throughout.

Lots of people enjoy summer music festivals, so when a festival-loving couple are thinking of a theme for their wedding, this is a great choice and Lillibrooke’s amazing old barns and picturesque fields are perfect.

Lillibrooke’s barns and cloisters were decked out with bunting and the table plan and table names were personalised music records of Steph and Rob’s favourite songs.  If you’re looking for rustic comfort for the evening reception, hay bales are the way to go – Steph and Rob used hay bales in the Engine Room to create a comfy spot for that all-important evening chilling.  Real festival fun continued in the Great Barn Garden, where they had a white bouncy castle, giving an amazing backdrop for really unique wedding photos.  They had a brilliant time bouncing around with their bridesmaids and groomsmen and the results were fantastic!

Nothing says festival food like a BBQ!  Their main dishes were our chef’s scrumptious BBQ’d beer can chicken, sausages and burgers, paired with a delicious array of salads and all family-served on platters to the middle of the table – perfect for ensuring the meal had the relaxed laid back atmosphere Steph and Rob were after.
