Angus And Sinead Wedding Festival
The end of June could only mean one thing – the return to Hilltop Farm in Romsey, one of our most picturesque venues for the Wedding Festival of Angus and Sinead.
It all started on Friday 29th June with a visit from the Bride and Groom to check out their finished festival site, as guests were soon to arrive. TWFC crew had been hard at work over the past 2 days building the site and adding all the last minute magic touches! The happy couple-to-be looked ecstatic as they approached the Bollywood marquee with it’s fully jewelled out interior! The next thing we all knew, guests were arriving and moving into their new homes, the fully decorated glamping village, for the weekend. As the bar opened, and Mr Charlie started to rock n roll, more guests started to arouse from the bell tents to enjoy the rest of the sun-soaked evening.
Our awesome chef cooked up a BBQ storm for all guests to enjoy! We laughed and danced and before we all knew it was time to hit the hay in preparation for the big day itself. We love having guests on the site the night before the wedding, it’s wonderful to feel the excitement growing (and to see a little bit of prosecco flowing!). We made sure the bar was closed at 10pm so that everyone could make the most of some beauty sleep before the big day!
Friday flew by and Saturday was suddenly upon us. Guests were waking up to the beautiful sounds of the outdoors and the smells of the breakfast cooking. While guests were making, themselves glam using the necessary ‘glam tent’, the WedFest Crew made the final preparations to the festival site. We made sure everything was pristine and perfect for the awaited arrival of the Bride and Groom, who choose to enter in style! Angus of course chose Terry the Tractor to escort him to the blessing area, looked upon by his amused guests! While Sinead was escorted in by her father in a VW Bug convertible! It’s fair to say that Sinead took everyone’s breath away when she began to walk up the aisle towards her blushing groom.
We were so thankful for such a beautiful day for this gorgeous couple to exchange captivating and emotional vows. We spotted a few tears as Mr and Mrs Barcroft walked back down the aisle under a shower of confetti as husband and wife. WedFest Crew ensured all guests were topped up with Pimms, the perfect summer drink and Prosecco.
Our head chef Joe was already busy in the catering area preparing Roasted Pork with all the trimmings as guests listened to the mellow sounds of the acoustic guitar player, Tom Martin. As the lunch came to a finish, the speeches commenced. One of our highlights was the dramatic, hilarious speech from the best man, James Regan. He had the guests along with the WedFest Crew in tears as he told un-censored stories of the Groom!
In the dazzling sunshine, Angus and Sinead had their first dance outside, as a newly wed couple to their chosen song, Home by Ed Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros.
The vintage tea party tent had a beautiful selection of homemade cakes, which were sampled and enjoyed by all guests throughout the afternoon. A big hit was the carrot cake made by Tina Cooke, as it all disappeared with only a few crumbs remaining! The sun was shining and so Remedy Sounds, Rufus Return and Just Millie played on the outdoor stage for everyone to enjoy whilst soaking up the sun!
How yummy was the paella?! Chef cooked up a cracking paella for all guests to dig in to and re-fuel themselves to dance the night away to the fabulous Smiley Campbell Band. The drinks were flowing, the music was pumping and the dancing shoes were in full swing. The night carried on into the early hours as everyone partied to the Wed Fest’s famous silent disco.
As the night closed in and the party wound down, only one thing was for sure, Angus and Sinead had had the most amazing Wedding Festival. Free-spirited fun, sun, laughter and dancing, and as all the last-standing guests stumbled tired towards their tents, the WedFest Crew stumbled towards their beds too excited to wake up early and hear everyone’s stories and laughs from the day before!
A big congratulations to Angus and Sinead, we were blessed with beautiful weather, amazing company and an incredible weekend. Thank you for letting us host your festival and we hope you enjoyed every minute of your weekend as much as we all did!
