Some of our Brides and Grooms have had their real wedding features on top wedding blogs and magazines.
At Bigtopmania we are still relatively new to the blogosphere but there are those that have been flying the flag or bleating the blog for quite a while now and we are seriously chuffed to see our tents in their real wedding articles.
Nb. It’s not all weddings by any means! Our tents, venues, performances, artists and activities regularly get featured in event promotional and review sites, film, tv, photographers galleries and so on!
Real wedding features in various media are great case studies for future couples, packed with ideas for their weddings.
Real wedding stories have wonderful wedding photography and give a breakdown of all the suppliers & DIY hints for magic styling touches, budgeting tips and resources.
Real Wedding stories inspire!
Our snap shots below don’t do them justice!
The best photography is on the blogs or photographer’s websites ! !
Rock ‘n Roll Bride. www.rocknrollbride.com.
We have been featured a couple of times on the world-renowned Rock n Roll Bride blog. This is a fantastic source of inspiration for the diy-quirky-alternative-hipster-hippies-goths-fairies of this world that want to take alternative weddings into their own hands. It features couples from all over the world and is now so popular they are also producing a beautiful magazine.
Matt and Alice, Somerset, June 2012.
Rock n Roll Bride featured this amazing festival wedding when we were involved in an ever so special stone-circle Glastonbury wedding of Matt & Alice. What a lucky couple! The ultimate festival wedding, held during a festival fallow year on the summer solstice weekend on the Glastonbury festival stone circle site! Some fantastic photos in this article courtesy of Neil Thomas photography and a really good example of how the Strawberries & Cream range can work for you.
Nb: it was a one-off! Please don’t ask!
However.. We are waiting for:
Tom and Laura, Somerset, June 2014.
Look carefully and you will see the Pyramid Stage photo- bombing the wedding.
When will their Glastonbury Festival site wedding get featured!? Held on the adjacent Park farm that is the other half of the festival, during the pre build weeks with the Pyramid stage in the background. A lovely local couple. Lucky connections again!
Adam and Lucy, Berkshire, August 2012.
At a wedding just up the road in Reading from where Bigtopmania was born was that of Lucy & Adam in Reading. Another festival inspired theme. A Festival wedding just to the side of the Reading Festival Site and with fencing and lighting in sight! They also used the Strawberries & Cream range with plenty of DIY additions such as the ‘Granny’s front room’ which pays homage to the brilliant festival venue ‘The Peoples Front Room’. Photography for Lucy & Adam’s day was by Viva Wedding Photography.
Nick and Mad’s. Berkshire 2011.
We are mentioned in Mad’s and Nick’s big day, for which we installed the lighting into a lovely tithe barn. To quote Mad’s in the article ‘Bigtopmania made that barn bad ass’.
Making things ‘bad ass’ is our unofficial mission statement : )
Festival Brides. www.festivalbrides.co.uk.
Two friends, Laura & Kelly who discovered there wasn’t enough help out there when planning their own festival weddings have created this online recourse of real life weddings, suppliers, tips, tricks and travel inspiration. They have given us a nice feature and plenty of love over the years, so show them some in return; get reading, sharing and planning!
Boho Weddings. www.boho-weddings.com.
Gavin and Lucy, Nottinghamshire, June 2014.
In the early summer of 2014 we did quite a lot of trips up to Nottinghamshire for various weddings and events. One of which was for Lucy and Gav’s country wedding in a lovely little village just outside Loughborough. The day is captured beautifully on Boho weddings which is a blog bursting with content. From real life weddings to planning advice and everything in-between this is a blog worth bookmarking.
Again showing the need for good photography, the beautifully captured images are by www.lucabella.co.uk
Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. www.whimsicalwonderlandweddings.com.
Tom and Katy, Nottinghamshire, summer 2013.
Darn! No photos. Please have a look at wonderful ones here;
Another trip to the East Midlands saw Katy and Thomas hold their wedding and hire a couple of our tents for their ‘Quirky Big Top Circus Wedding’ in Blythe.
The day and night are captured perfectly by CGWeddings photography.
Away from the internet and back in the real world of printed wedding magazines.
It’s hard to know or keep up but we know we have been featured a few times!
Gavin and Lucy’s above wedding was nicely featured in the East Midlands Weddings Magazine in Jan 2015 . Your East Midlands Wedding – Dec:Jan 2014:2015 (Issue 5).
