An eclectic tropical styled wedding shoot with Festival Brides Magazine

If you know Eco Glitter Fun, then you know that putting together words like wedding, festival, neon, tropical and eco is music to our ears. Well, in a recent wedding photoshoot for one of the UK’s top online wedding magazines, Festival Brides, this became a reality. Along with some of the wedding industry’s top suppliers, we joined Head Stylist Claire Hartley to help bring to life her theme ‘Tropical Festival Wedding’ for Festival Brides’ 100,000 readers. Somebody pinch us.

Let us talk you through the wedding theme

We’re not talking fake pineapples on fascinators and flamingo cocktail straws here, think edgy, boho, tropical festival wedding look with vintage parasols, flashes of neon, and a delicious sheen of our Eco Glitter Fun Biodegradable, eco-friendly glitter. YES CLAIRE!

In the Festival Brides article, Claire Hartley says,

“I wanted to take your readers on an epic, fun journey deep into the colourful tropics, to inspire a quirky, relaxed tropical festival vibe. I was keen to keep the styling edgy and so played with my eclectic vision, contrasting styles, colours, textures and patterns.”

This photoshoot showcases the work of a stellar team of top wedding stylists, designers, chefs, hair stylists and make-up artists in the aim to deliver some inspiration to you, the brides, wedding planners and grooms. The shoot showcases how the Tropical Festival Wedding theme could work across every element of a wedding – right down to the shimmer of our guilt-free bio glitter.

Check out the amazing shots below by wedding and lifestyle photographer Olegs Samsonovs. Olegs perfectly captures the vibrant yet edgy expression of the theme, showing how to deliver it through everything from signage and stationary, to catering, tailoring and jewellery.

Wedding Glitter Bars, Artists & More

As you can see from the pics, we showcased our glamorous Wedding Glitter Bar offering - the perfect way to give your day a guilt-free sparkle. We do loads of weddings each year, and it really does add a fun sparkle to the day. Hire our Wedding Glitter Artists and Glitter bar services and you’ll get a fun and professional artist ready to make all your guests sparkle well into the night. Other ways that you can sprinkle our environmentally-friendly glitter across your wedding planning calendar include; hand-made glitter-infused invitations, glitter themed Hen Party, Wedding Glitter for the Bride & Hens to make your makeup pop and why not have unique bottles of eco glitter as table favours for your guests.

An eco-conscious wedding

And, thanks to Claire’s curation skills, we weren’t the only ones rocking the eco-conscious vibe. The wedding invitations by Polkadot Daisy were printed on recycled textured card; the favours, provided by Seedball, contained seeds for beautiful wildflowers to help sustain garden wildlife; and the straws used in Coastal Wedding Event Hire’s “Pimp Your Prosecco” bar were strictly bamboo.


Meanwhile, all the flowers and foliage used in Bohotanical’s stunning statement bouquets and crowns were dried, meaning they can be kept or used again, and Grazing Social’s edible table runner was laden with a mouth-watering array of fresh, locally-produced food.

The photography speaks for itself, the result was inspiring

It takes real talent to weave together several contrasting looks and we take our plastic-free hats off to Claire for achieving such a wonderfully artistic design.
