Alternative Weddings

Red and White Circus Wedding

Alternative weddings – venue solutions

Weddings are all registry offices, hotels and white marquees right?  Wrong!  Alternative weddings are so popular they won’t even be considered alternative soon!

Bigtopmania have been contributing in one way or another to hundreds of weddings for the last 20 years.

Whether it’s at Chief Peteza’s wedding to wife Anne, when they had a juggling show during dinner and a friend’s 2CV as their wedding car.

Or more recently with our range of colourful marquees providing the backdrop to bundles of grooms and  brides.

There is plenty of inspiration out there for free spirited young couples that are creating their own unique celebrations.

Tearing up the rule book of traditional wedding planning has never been so easy.

For alternative weddings inspiration you could take a look at Festival Brides or Rock n Roll Bride.

Check out a wonderful case study wedding of ours in Ireland or a coastal wedding in North Devon.


Wedding entertainment with a difference.

From wondering bands to magicians, jugglers to acrobats, unicycling waiters and everything in-between. Think outside the box and give your guests something to talk about whilst sipping champagne. Wandering entertainment in the form of a juggler can be an excellent ice breaker whilst a mingling band can provide fantastic sing along atmosphere and get you out of a jam if you have power troubles.  An evening cabaret can provide a focal point of excitement after the speeches as you build up to the dance floor finish.

The video below shows a lovely wedding in Saltash that Lucas Jet was lucky enough to be booked for.  Will and Harriet wanted to create a playful atmosphere for the children and bring out the inner child in the adults. So Lucas provided circus skills lessons during the early day along with penny farthing rides which were an excellent photo opportunity. In the evening, before the band rounded the night off, Lucas provided a 20 minute one man circus show with a finale of jumping over the bride and groom. Another great photo opportunity.
