Colourful + edgy festival wedding inspiration at the UK’s hottest new venue The Giraffe Shed

Neon, glitter and colour for a festival wedding…

Ok, we don’t use those words lightly, but The Giraffe Shed really needs to be on your radar, and then on your ‘to book’ list, pronto. It’s a dream festival wedding location with rainbow walls, gritty industrial decor and NEON (the perk of the venue being owned by a phtoographer is incredible light)! Team this with photography and creative direction from Jade Maguire and Rachael from The Burtons, and some breathtaking couple styles (bridal fedoras are BACK!), and you get absolute festival wedding magic. Take it away, ladies…

“Every once in a while you live your dream, a real dream, a dream that makes your heart sing, the butterflies in your stomach dance and you leave feeling like you’re floating on air… well this is exactly how I felt! On seeing the pink wall that Hannah had created, the first style that sprang to our mind was colour, and what better way to use colour than a dramatic festival theme?”

Breathtaking farmland Wedding Venue + home of the foodie… Meet The River Cottage

Introduce yourself…

Hello! My name is Megan and I run the weddings at River Cottage (lucky me!).

What are a few of your favourite things?

You can’t work at River Cottage without a real passion for food and nothing pleases me more than cooking for friends and family. I am also a self-confessed caffeine addict (especially on the morning of a wedding!) so a freshly made flat white is a very welcome sight for me!

Tell us about where the magic happens – where’s your HQ?

I am based at the farm itself on the Devon/Dorset border and our office overlooks breath-taking views across the valley, which can be quite distracting!

What do you love most about your job?

Menu-sampling is definitely up there on the list of job perks but being able to work outside in the fresh country air and knowing that we’re creating memories that will be treasured forever is very fulfilling.

What makes your work unique?

Working on a farm which produces lovely organic veggies from the kitchen garden and seeing them transformed into a delicious dish in the kitchen is very special and having that traceability from the farm to your plate is something you don’t see very often at wedding venues.

What kind of couples are ‘your couples’?

We get a real mix of couples but the thing they …
