Review: The Boho & Retro Wedding Festival at Bridwell 2017

What a totally incredible & inspiring weekend at Bridwell for our Boho & Retro Wedding Festival!

Massive thank you to the genius behind the lens –

Mel at Maxi Photography 

For all the Brides & Grooms-to-be who were unable to pop along to our event,  we would love to share with you some truly fabulous shots to capture your imagination … exquisite styling, beautiful marquees and an abundance of inspiration from over 50 + exhibitors … allowing you to feel you were right there with us!

We would also like to offer huge heartfelt thanks to all the Brides-to-be, Grooms & their families who joined us over the weekend. Thank you to the gorgeous venue and team at Bridwell for all their support, thank you to all the incredible teams behind each individual structure, marquee, tipi & dome – creating a home for all our amazing exhibitors and their inspiring displays! Particular thanks goes to our media partners Wed Magazine, Pasties & Petticoats Wedding Blog and Coco Wedding Venues – your support has been invaluable – huge heartfelt thanks x


During the wedding festival our lovely Blue Fizz Stylist Bridget held a fabulous ‘refine your wedding style’ workshop for Brides-to-be , who have a million and one fabulous ideas but not sure on how to pull them all together – we love to communicate our ideas through inspiration boards and via Pinterest which is a really useful tool!

When it comes to our styling services, we are unique in our approach, helping couple to create a bespoke style to suit any budget. We will lend a hand refining all your ideas, whilst sourcing & pulling exquisite items together, using natural materials, vintage finds, handmade elements sourced or produced in-house with breathtaking end results.

As part of our marquee styling service,we can also help you source additonal individual elements to suit your requirements such as, decorative lighting, accessories, prop hire, circular tables, trestle tables, chairs, dance floor, staging, ‘pop-up’ bars, generator, heaters, luxury loos, natural coir matting, up-lighters, decorative bunting, drapes and swags & so much more…


Over the weekend at Bridwell we had one of our luxury marquees (40 x 60ft)  at the forefront of the event, styled to perfection by Bridget from Blue Fizz and Emma from Brompton Buds who created a magnificent floral hanging centre piece especially for the event!

If you love the idea of an outdoor wedding, overlooking the sea or in the midst of beautiful rolling hills , it’s super easy to extend your venue space with a beautiful marquee or luxury tent, as it can be a fabulous way to accommodate many guests under one roof!
