We know a bunch of you will be suffering a post-Splendour hangover this morning, which is why we’re keeping the party going with ten of our favourite Splendour-esque festival weddings.

Encapsulating the bohemian spirit with a love of nature, friends, live music and wild dancing under the stars, the wedfest is – in our humble opinion – the perfect way to celebrate the love and union of two souls. So allow us to cure your post-festival blues with all the tipis, bonfires flower crowns and good vibes you can handle!

I love these rustic weddings. I had a friend who got married in the middle of a forest on a platform with guests sat on old fashioned deck chairs in a circle around them! So cool!

Stay in the loop!
