Real Weddings

Inspiring real-life case-studies with professional photography featuring Bigtopmania's alternative-weddings, festival-weddings and traditional wedding-marquees.

We thought what better way to showcase our wonderful weddings and gain some amazing inspiration, than by presenting you with real-life photo-books of some of our fabulous clients over the years.

This is, of course, just a fraction of the superb range of weddings and events that we've catered for over the years.

Having recently updated the website, these are the first batch of professional photographs that have been kindly sent for us to use with their permission.

What kind of wedding celebration are you looking for? You will want to have 'your day - your way' of course and we do love a challenge!

For alternative weddings, our circus-style marquees veer towards fun, whimsical, colourful, big-top weddings, festival-theme 'wed-fests', circus themes, vintage circus, arty and theatrical, steam-punk or just punk, fiesta or carnival and anything counterculture you can come up with.

Our marquee and tent colours lend themselves to "red and white" or "red and gold" and traditional "cream" or "white" weddings. Don't forget we can easily become a bit more patriotic with red, white and blue!

For more traditional, quintessentially British, outdoor weddings, and outdoor ceremonies, our cream canvas tent range is ideal for boho style, vintage rustic charm, country-chic and organic sustainable eco-weddings.

So whether you want luxury or simplicity, glamour or relaxed, formal or informal; we are fairly confident we can help you plan your dream wedding!

Remember; we operate safely, responsibly and in line with all the government laws and industry guidance.

We have full risk assessments and H&S documentation, DBS checked and fully trained staff. We are good to go!
