Cool photo booth
Who can resist getting involved with a bit of photo booth action at a wedding, hey? It’s the perfect way to switch things up for the evening reception, or add some fun entertainment during your drinks reception. How awesome if this teardrop caravan photo booth from Midlands-based company The Pixie Booth? Obsessed!
The Hall Barns is the dream setting for a cool, laid-back festival style wedding. If you want your guests to get into the Glastonbury-vibe, why not hire a glitter bar to add a bit of sparkle to proceedings? Set up your own DIY glitter station in our camping field, or call in the pros, like Leicestershire’s Daisy Janes Face Painting. Shiny, happy guests, guaranteed.
Let there be gin
Quirky wedding entertainment ideas don’t have a to cost a fortune. Create your own bespoke gin table, to let your guests mix and match their favourite tipples to their hearts’ content.
