Fabulous Wedding Festival

A muddy but ruddy good time!

On Saturday 16 March 2013 we participated in the first Fabwedfest.  An alternative DIY  Wedding Festival which was held on the beautiful grounds of Muddiford’s Court in Devon.

Fabulous Wedding Festival

It was our first time exhibiting at a  wedding show after visiting numerous ones over the years it was great to be on the other side of the desk. We choose to work hard at this one as it matched our ethos much more than most.

Bigtopmania Display Stand

 

There were some beautiful displays from the various sectors of the wedding world.

Some lovely bespoke artwork, couture, styling ideas and jewellery to be seen.

Pizza Monkey fueled us through the wet day with beautiful stone baked pizzas. That kept us going until the delicious 3 course banquet in the evening, by which point we felt we fully deserved to “scoff” the meal which was served by Scoff Catering.

Musical highlights of the day for us were Alex Gregory who had a lovely voice and Mister Kanish who kept us bouncing whilst munching with their funky twists on an impressive range of genre songs.

The catwalk displays kept the crowds happy and the models did a sterling job in the challenging conditions!

“Muddiford” and “Festival theme”…the name gives a clue and we should have known!! The rain had turned much of the field almost into a lake! So the tent flooring suffered… but that’s festivals and the mud and “weddington” boots came in handy!

Note to wedding planners…choose free draining sites for best location!! Avoid heavy clay in the rain!!

Nice to meet

After plenty of communication it was nice to put faces to names ; amongst others , Limegreen Electrics, Festi-Flags and the lovely ladies from Festival Brides,

Briefly met the team from Cocktail Caravan, didn’t get a chance to sample : ( but the van looked great and there’s always next time!) ( next-time.. more socialising!)

We met a few future Bigtopmania couples, and hopefully showcased our tents to entice a few more brides to be and party animals!
