Here are our first Cwtchfesters through the door in September- at the start on the left and the end of the day on the right.  Goodybag in hand, they had received hair and make up trial, attended workshops including one on making buttonholes with the lovely Eva from The Flowerhive, sampled cocktails, listened to live music in the field whilst having lunch and were just about to get a free henna tattoo from the talented Hennavative.  They loved the entire day!!

We also wanted to showcase some outstanding Welsh wedding venues and it does not get more welsh than St Fagans National History Museum.  Our very own Lindsey got married here so it holds a special place in all our hearts and holds a lot of nostalgic memories for many.  Just look at what this stunning venue has to offer…

The event also allows you to experience MEGA outdoor structures that are available for your wedding before booking.  Like the beautiful stretch tents from Stretchevent.  These guys have an amazing array of structures to help bring your outdoor wedding to life.
