The wedding industry is beginning to change in the UK bringing a surge in demand for festival weddings. Due to a rise in humanist and personal wedding ceremonies, couples can now choose to marry almost anywhere in the UK, opening the doors to more alternative venues and locations.
Tradition is being replaced by personality with couples choosing to marry in areas that represent who they are and the things they love to do. If you own a plot of land, camping or glamping site and are looking for an exciting and refreshing opportunity to develop your business then you will want to read on…
Since Festival Brides, a UK wedding blog that focuses on alternative and festival style wedding inspiration, began in August 2011, the rise in humanist and personal weddings has led to a huge increase in outdoor/festival style weddings.
Celebrities such as Kate Moss, Lily Allen, Jade Jagger and Kate Halfpenny have all led the way by having festival style weddings with camping and music at the heart of the event.
Inevitably, as this style has begun to trend in the UK so has the demand for venues that can cater for this style of wedding.
In the last year Festival Brides have received an overwhelming amount of enquiries from couples searching for fields, campsites, meadows, woodlands, farms – any land in general that can host festival style or outdoor weddings.
This demand is set to grow even stronger next year with festival weddings predicting to trend in 2013/14. It is due to this demand that Festival Brides have recently launched a venue/land hire service that is solely focusing on festival style wedding venues.
“We are searching the country for the best venues and land sites that lend themselves to this style of wedding.
There is a huge gap in the market for festival wedding venues so it makes sense for us to use Festival Brides as a platform to market these venues, and to help our readers find the perfect location for their wedding.”
If you own a field, campsite, farm or meadow that you think would be a great site for a festival wedding then please get in touch with the girls at Festival Brides.
This is an exciting opportunity for you to expose your business to a developing side of the wedding industry and to become a part of a trend that is set to take the wedding industry by storm!
If you are planning a wedding and are looking for quirky and alternative wedding inspiration then check out Festival Brides. If you are yet to find your wedding venue then take a look at their land hire/venue page and choose from festival fields, secret woodlands and real festival sites.
