Dreaming of a Devon beach wedding?

“We’re lucky enough to be able to offer our couples some simply beautiful sites for a sand-in-the-toes North Devon beach wedding in exclusive sites that we manage in Croyde , Woolacombe and Braunton – perfect if you’re dreaming of being that barefoot, boho or festival bride or groom,” says Director Tracy Edwards.

This shoot was all about highlighting what we at Blue Fizz Events do best! Delivering a highend DIY event held in our stunning traditional canvas and pole marquee in unique settings such as here: Down End Field in Croyde, North Devon, where the stunning sea rolls up to the edge of your very own slice of heaven for your perfect day.

We were fortunate enough to work with Yeti Photography, who can combine film and photography to capture the atmosphere and treasured memories of your day, including the use of drone filming to deliver an epic view of your surroundings and a sense of scale and drama that’s second to none.


The inspiration for this shoot came from a piece of silk that I came across. Alongside my role as stylist for Blue Fizz Events I also work with private clients to design and make eco, boho and retro inspired wedding gowns. The silk had splashes of vibrant watercolour hues that influenced the colour pop festival vibe in this shoot. Working with organic fabrics I combined the silk in a simple halter neck with long ties and very low back with a simple fluid silk skirt. Our model, Jess, suited this fresh young look that juxtasposed quirky fabrics with classic lines, and had made-to-measure bespoke detailing.

Charlotte at SALT in Braunton created  Jess’s hair on the day – an informal up-do with structure and tendrils falling that could stand up to the sea breeze, with movement and elegance combined. We teamed the look with a simple gold band that I customised from a necklace simply threaded through the crown.

Rachel at Isabelle Grace Makeup created a pop of colour and dewy bronzed look that was fresh, yet very wearable for our festival look. Rachel works to create a natural look with impact to suit her individual clients.

Emma at Mrs Smudgers Kitchen created our stunning cake with its semi-naked tiers and cream layers dressed in natural foliage and jewel-like pomegranate seeds tumbling over the top. Although the colour palette I chose for this shoot was a bold colour pop, it’s used as an accent, so many elements like the cake are neutral with accents of colour as a contrast: this avoids the look becoming overpowering.

Flowers for this shoot were provided by Caroline at Foxy Buds, who created a stunning display of stemmed flowers that hung between the king poles of our marquee. This is such a beautiful look, and dresses the large space so effectively. They also produced a large flowing bouquet that combine ample foliage and a combination of textures and blooms, finished off with coloured ribbons.

Our beautiful vintage wooden tables and chairs were provided by Signature Blue Events, and are perfect for both feasting or formal sit-down occasions. Our lovely florist provided the blooms that created a stunning centrepiece of mixed match vintage bottles (all available from out selection of Bluefizz Events hire items). Pops of colour were created with coloured candles – such a simple way to bring your table to life! The use of linen napkins with Mexican-inspired pompom braiding – again combining neutral elements with a pop of colour – gives a natural yet fun feel.

The ever creative Prop Factory delivered the impact needed against our neutral backdrop, with an exciting pom-pom backdrop. For our aisle set up, brightly coloured ribbon bunting and painted upright poles defined the ceremony space leading from the tipi. The tipi was provided World Inspired Tents: these tipis are fantastic structures visually, and in this case we dressed our ceremony around it.

The ceremony area was enhanced by the use of Fuss Pots’ trees, shrubs and plants, which are all available to hire. This is a popular option as it acts as a sustainable yet aesthetically beautiful way of creating subtle drama. The use of trees within the marquee gave a sense of height and scale with a natural feel that I simply love.

Sarah at Vintage Adventure brought along her beautiful V-Dub Campervan as a pop-up photo booth, also available to hire for your perfect honeymoon get-away.

Our stationary was created by Sarah Wants, who took the brief in her stride to produce a pop of colour with a neutral twist, tying nicely in with our floral displays.

To define the event field and to from the stunning view, we used colourful flags from Event Flags. These are so quick and easy to put up, and create a fabulous impact on arrival for your guests.

Our dashing groom Jake brought along his own array of colourful trousers – a key look in men’s wear at the moment is combining formal attire with colourful trousers, often with the groomsmen wearing all the colours of the rainbow.

All in all, this neutral mixed with colourpop plus festival vibes is a lot of fun to look at – and most importantly, very achievable. It’s simply about achieving a balance of natural elements – such as wood, canvas, sea, sand and rolling countryside – with a splash of colour that doesn’t overpower its surroundings.
