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?”

Glastonbury 2017…

Ahh wonderful Glastonbury… its been over 12 years since I last saw your wonders (yikes, am I really that old?!)

I have always been a festival girl at heart – I love everything about it from the music, to the food, the fashion, the diversity, the nightlife to the wonderful corners filled with art installations and festival parades.

I spent most of my twenties hitting the festival scene but when I turned thirty I got married to Lee and a year later we were parents; sadly my good old festival days were behind me!  This was until 2015 when some mates and I got drunk at Christmas and on a whim booked Wilderness tickets; we left the kids with our parents and spent the weekend eating great food, covered in glitter and dancing till dawn in the Valley… we had an incredible time and my love for festivals was reborn!

Glastonbury is one festival I would really love to return too, but now I have kids its been something Ive been really hesitant about- Do I really want to struggle with camping, 100,000’s of people, the dirt, portaloos, the late nights and two misfit kids to run after?!
