Thanks to music festivals such as Splendor, Glastonbury or Woodford, the festival wedding vibe is alive and well in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The concept is simple – you create a mini festival with your closest friends and family, there should be lots of music, dancing and laughter.

The best festivals are vibrant, colourful and staged in the great outdoors. This means you can get creative with your styling: bunting, party games, paper lanterns and festoon lights will create the perfect festival atmosphere.

Commonly the catering is about food that is easy to eat, think food trucks and casual seating such as hay bales or picnic rugs.

A true festival wedding would not be complete without some kind of a tent structure. If you’re having a yurt, tipi or a marquee – have fun with your layout and decor, think of it as a blank canvas and get wild and whimsical with your styling and flowers.

Ideally, the music should be live. Choose a band or DJ that can provide you with an awesome live set and are up for performing outdoors. And if a little rain is forecast for your big day pack your wellies for a true festival experience. When choosing a venue, look for a place that has adequate space and scope for your celebrations.
