A quirky, vintage funfair-themed wedding

Morning everyone! I’m sure we’re all trying to get past that mid-week hump! Zzzz… no loved-up couples this morning – just detail, detail, detail.

As you can imagine, choosing a wedding photographer, when there’s so much selection out there, is no mean feat. But as soon as I got engaged I was on the phone to Rick Bronks of Satureyes to book him for our big day. And with good reason. That’s why I was so excited when he sent me this fun and quirky real wedding. In fact, the photography is so excellent, I started formatting as usual with reduced-size pictures, but couldn’t bring myself to do it! I want my readers to see these in all their top quality!

Styled by Mandy Mahil of event design company, Mango Pie, I’m going to hand over to Mandy to tell you all about the detail of the day.

“The couple wanted their wedding to be a memorable but most importantly a fun day for all their guests, with an old, rustic funfair feel. All the vintage fair ground games were hosted by actors dressed in victorian workware complete with the quaffed moustache and the art of wellie wanging was brought back to life along with the classic coconut shy!”






“The table plan followed the funfair theme. Goldfish in a bag were mounted on a board with the table printed onto tags and tied to each bag. Don’t worry, no animals were harmed in the making of this wedding as the fish were actually plastic!”




“Every lady got a teacup and saucer which the bride and her mother spent months collecting from second hand shops, markets and car boot sales. In every cup they had planted miniature roses. Every seating card was embedded with seeds and came with instructions on the back to take home and grow. The outdoor theme continued in the marquee as all the wooden beams were covered in fresh hops which were decorated with sculptural birds and butterflies.”








“The theme of “fun” at the funfair was shown eclectically throughout the day. The menu card was written to small that a magnifying glass was provided with it to read. Lime green gnomes lined the path to the loos and guests were invited to take pictures in a photo booth full of props such as oversized hats, big moustaches and feather boas.”
