So, you want to tie the knot, now what?

As much as you’re probably trying not to tear your hair out right now, it’s always good to laugh and you can’t say you won’t be doing something completely unique at your wedding that your married friends have never done before now, can you?

Trying to do almost anything during the peaks and troughs of COVID-19 outbreaks and local lockdowns is difficult enough and trying to organise a wedding is the cherry on the Covid Restrictions Cake.

We know. It’s not fair at all, but you can still have a day which you’ll look back on fondly forever, pandemic or not.

Think Different.

‘Oh if only it was that simple Festival in a Box!’ we hear you cry. Curveballs like this pandemic require a different style of thinking to figure out how you can still have those all-important elements on your big day.

Naturally, one of the first things we’d suggest is making sure you have somebody like a Wedding Planner or Event Organiser on your side who really knows their onions and has put in the hard work to understand COVID restrictions so that you don’t have to. Because let’s face it, planning a wedding is hard enough without trying to wrap your head around how to do everything with COVID Restrictions in place too.

Thankfully, aside from a few more video calls than usual, you can follow the same process you usually would when looking for the right person or people to run your day behind the scenes without a hitch (apart from yours, obviously).

At Festival in a Box, we’ll work with you to guide you through the dizzying number of options available, listening to what you really want from your wedding day, so that we can present you with a list of ideas that will run off the page.


Choose Good People.

Here’s a quick idea of the services we can provide:

• Help managing budgets to make sure that costs don’t run riot without compromising on the end result

• Recommending trusted suppliers to ensure you get the best deals available

• Event management to oversee, everything from managing suppliers to ensuring the day runs smoothly

• Crisis management. We won’t tell you about the bride with the porta-loo catastrophe on the morning of her wedding…because we sorted it.

• Health & safety. Not the most interesting part of wedding planning but essential none-the-less, especially in this ‘new normal’ – cue eye roll here, we know we did!

Luckily for us, thirty years of staging major festivals and large-scale events worldwide means we can organise a wedding without a sweat, even during a global pandemic. Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could just go back to choosing your wedding dress and tasting wedding cake like the average bride-to-be instead of trying to figure out how to organise your venue, catering, entertainment and guests on your big day with COVID in the mix?


Dream Big.

Whether you like a traditional theme or something more fanciful, our portfolio of work will show you what we can do with a creative brief that will make your wedding a happy memory you can look back on in years to come.

Our Wild FIAB Wedding and our Deluxe Festival Wedding will give you a good idea of the event and attention to detail our team can produce for you and your forever, the options really are endless when it comes to what you want from your wedding day, and we’ll work in a way which makes you feel like your only restriction is what it should be – the budget.

If you’ve decided it’s time to call in the cavalry to plan your wedding for 2021 or 2022, give us a call on 01225 740610 or email us at to talk with us and find out if we’re the perfect fit for you and fiancé. We’d love to help melt that stress away and produce a day you’ll look back on with a smile for the rest of your lives together.
