Laura & Phil's Wedding Festival
We headed back to Romsey’s Hill Top Farm, exactly a month later since Angus and Sinead’s for another fabulous wedding, celebrating the marriage of Laura and Phil.
The WedFest Crew arrived early on Wednesday to transform the field into the perfect wedding festival setting all in preparation for our guests the arrive on Friday. Phil, the Groom-to-be, came to the site to add the final magical touches. Mr Charlie played at the evening soiree (aka party!) whilst the guest tucked into good old British fish ‘n’ chips. Cue bed-time.
Guests started to arrive early at 10:00am and were met by Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter who towered above. Guests received personalised lanyards by the lovely WedFest girls. The cakes began to roll into the Vintage Tea Party tent for the ultimate Great British Bake Off, later that afternoon. The morning flew by and the blessing was soon upon us. Phil, suited and booted, eagerly waited for his blushing Bride who soon arrived in a magical horse and cart. As all guests were upstanding, Just Millie started to pay ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri as Laura and her bridesmaids walked down the aisle.
Lisa the Celebrant told a beautiful story of how Laura and Phil began their Journey of Love. The letters that Laura and Phil wrote to each other, to be opened on the 10th Anniversary was a beautiful touch, which cast tears across the whole of the room – including all of the WedFest crew. The couple walked down the aisle under a confetti shower to Tom Martin singing their chosen song of ‘Highway to Hell’ – which is one we haven’t heard before!!
After the infamous WedFest Chicken and Chorizo Paella, The Great British Bake Off tent opened and the judging commenced. The hard task of judging the tremendous choice of sweet goodies was given to Laura and Phil! Some personal favourites include the Beauty and the Beast iced Gingerbread window, the layered cake, the lemon drizzle cake and the amazing unicorn cupcakes!! In third place we had the white sprinkles cake, the second place was the themed gingerbread. The final winner was the lemon cake with white roses, it was a fluffy as a cloud (never had a cake so good- sorry grandma).
The magician worked his magic round the guests and had them in awe from his outstanding capabilities. From our music line-up, next was Remedy Sounds who was very interactive with the crowd as he showed us how to use his loop pedal – where he works his beat-boxing magic.
There was a really special moment where we got to hear Laura’s dad’s speech was played through the speakers and touched the hearts of all who listened. Unusually but hilariously, the maid of honours gave a speech - which described a slightly different version of Laura and Phil’s love story to how the celebrant told it!
Phil took on the challenge of riding the rodeo bull and managed to hold on whilst we got this amazing snap!
The newly weds, finally had a second to themselves on the dance floor, for their first dance to ‘Book of Love’ Peter Gabriel. The three-tier salted caramel wedding cake was cut by a replica of Frodo sword to the Beauty and Beast song – ‘Tale as Old as Time’.
Another addition to our music line-up was the Day of the Rabblement which was a refreshing country sound to the day. Followed by the appetising Hog Roast - It was a great hit once again! The nerve tingling fire act amazed the crowd with the mesmerizing fire breathing!! All guests and WedFest crew watched on in bewilderment.
Our headline act was the Smiley Campbell Band who brought everyone to the dance floor for some feel good hits! Not long after, all the music was silenced for the breath-taking firework display for the happy couple to watch on as husband and wife.
We hope you all had the best festival wedding! It is definitely one for the books – we wont forget this one! Congratulations to Laura and Phil and we wish you all the best in your married life.
Esme and Katy
