To get you in the mood for #Cwtchfest2016, we’ve got our very own, very fabulous, Maria Farrelly, to give you a few wedding festival tips, based on what she has witnessed this summer as a busy photographer.

As we start gearing up for our next Cwtchfest wedding festival, We thought it would be a great idea to help you all with some ideas if you are planning an outdoor /festival style wedding.

What I love most about organising Cwtchfest is bringing together some of Wales’ most talented suppliers and giving them a platform to be as creative as they like to inspire you all. We have some great treats in stall for you all! Watch this space. In the meantime,

Inspiration

I’m a huge believer that a wedding should be a celebration of what you both love most. Family, friends, favourite food & drink and music to make you lose yourself in. Lets face it, dancing the night away to your favourite song, in a beautiful dress with all your favourite people around you is a pretty good feeling. And then there is all the little touches, the personal ones. The ones that your guests look at and go… “thats SO YOU’.

I’ve put together a compilation of some of the best ideas I’ve seen at weddings I’ve photographed recently. I hope it inspires you to put your own stamp on your wedding day. As styles and trends evolve, it really is a case of ‘anything goes’ and its totally ok to break with tradition! At the end of the day, all that really matters is that you get married!

A Ceilidh (Kay-lee) band is an awesome idea to get EVERYONE up and moving! The best thing about one is that you don’t even have to be a good dancer.

When it comes to fashion, wearing something comfortable will help you relax and enjoy the day more…
