Now, this wedding had one hell of a lineup! Tilly & George are all about the party and organised their very own wedfest! The couple had an intimate ceremony at a registry office before heading to George’s family home for their wedding reception where 160 guests gathered to party with DIY outdoor carnival games, a live band, a DJ and a silent disco inside a stunning marquee adorned with pampas grass, disco balls and DIY bunting! The couple worked hard to create the wedding they had envisioned and we can certainly say that their hard work paid off! The amazing Recommended Supplier, B Photography, had the honour of capturing this gorgeous day! 


At-home festival theme wedding with DIY fairground and carnival games

The evening was our favourite part of the day. We were on the dance floor all night! The band were incredible and had everyone up dancing. The DJ and silent disco were such a fun ending to the day!

Wedfest At Home Wedding

Tilly & George always knew they wanted an intimate wedding ceremony with a big party in the evening! The couple tied the knot at a registry office before heading off to George’s parent’s farm where they hosted their very own wedfest! The couple got stuck in with DIY to make everything feel authentic and unique to them. They sourced and put together all the decor with help from their family and friends, including all the carnival games! The kissing booth, coconut shy, and put a ring on it game were all handmade. The rustic signage was also all DIY! Tilly, George and their family spent many hours cutting and tying fabric to make the bunting and dance floor decor. The part we were most impressed with though, was the flowers! Tilly & George went to New Covent Garden Flower Market to buy flowers and did all the arrangements themselves. We LOVE the vision. We could look at these photos all day long…

From 28 guests at the ceremony to 160 for the reception! That’s how you level up the party!

Don’t let it all get on top of you. Do what you want and not what you think others want or expect. This is what we did; it was our perfect day, and all our guests loved it too!
