W hat’s not to love about a rustic festival theme for your wedding? Perfect for a summer garden venue. You could perhaps opt for a teepee instead of the traditional-style marquee? For this theme we use natural wood, fresh flowers and tiny vases to dress our tables. Barbecues work so well with this and for your barbecue buffet station we suggest using rustic wooden boxes to hold the hot food, big terracotta bowls for the salads. We love tiny bottles with hand-painted labels for our oils and vinegars and sauces and use big wooden logs to add height to the table and bits of slate to label the food items. We love how big round logs of wood can also be used for ‘naked’ wedding cakes and giant cheese stack cakes.

A fantastic alternative to the buffet station is family service where the centre of your dinner tables are again dressed to this style and the food is in the middle of the table in smaller bowls, ready for you to pass around to your guests. A rustic bar can be dressed with natural hessians, wooden box trays, vases of fresh fruits and herbs. We even have a rustic mini wooden wheelbarrow to finish the look.

The soft smoky smell of grilled food fills the air as guests make their way into marquee for a delicious BBQ.

As the sun goes down, music and laughter fill the air. Fish and chips are served in wooden cones, the epitome of a summer wedding. As a fun twist why not include a pimms tricycle…
