Nothing screams summer like a festival themed wedding full of ice cream pastel tones, sequins, glitter and flamingos!
This Coachella themed styled shoot is the stuff of wedding inspiration dreams! What's more, it's total proof that you don't need to have a field full of 100's of guests to pull off this colourful rainbow styling. The shoot took place at a pub in south London, proving that intimate urban city weddings can be full of fun and one hell of a party!
How to create a Coachella Festival themed wedding
Festival weddings are really popular because of their relaxed and laid back vibes, literally anything goes, leaving guests super chilled and enjoying their surroundings and entertainment. Having a pub wedding lends itself so well to this, because you're in the perfect place to experiment with creating your own cocktails and having grazing tables or outside food trucks to create that sunset in a field feeling.
Sticking to a simple pastel palette of iridescent pinks, purples and pale blues means that you can really run with the cool theme. The more ideas you have, the better when it comes to festive themed wedding stationery, you have so much to work with and can set the tone of your wedding as being a fun day that people will not want to say no to.
Get creative with Californian inspired back drops, floral installations, centre pieces and table decorations by using palm leaves and cacti. Of course a Music festival wedding wouldn't be complete without glitter balls. Add a rainbow themed wedding cake, some fun biscuits and glitter lollipops to the mix and you my friends have created a party!
When it comes to outfits, this is an alternative wedding theme brides and grooms can really run with. Music festivals are full of all kinds of fun clothes, so the only limit is your imagination!
Cool brides can go for boho dresses or just your fave short dress, paired with a painted denim jacket and wedge heels. Whether you've got long or short hair, Top the look off with an eco friendly recycled crown/headwear and lots of shiny jewellery to catch the light.
Modern grooms can go all out with crazy print shirts and suits, the crazier the better.
Entertainment for guests can include DIY tattoo and glitter stations, cocktail making classes, a live band and a silent disco.
So there you have it, small city weddings do not equal boring!
