5 Unexpected Wedding Entertainment Ideas
27 September 2017
By having your wedding in the south west, your guests are probably expecting great weather, an enviable view and the fresh sea air! They’ll receive a smattering of history no matter where you exchange vows and with stunning Cornish and Devonshire food and drink, we don’t think there’s anywhere better to get married. But what if you decided to surprise your guests? Here are 5 unexpected wedding entertainment ideas that are sure to bring the fun!
This fun idea takes the concept of a photo booth and expands it into something that young twenty and thirtysomethings would absolutely love – they put it inside a vintage VW Camper Van! A huge hit at many of the weddings we have worked on, Camper Camera goes the extra mile by providing fun props for everybody to use and can provide personalised prints of your big day just seconds after you’ve taken your snaps. Raining? There’s a gazebo included just in case and your photos can be stuck inside a photo album and will be stored in a secure online gallery for all your social media needs!
Charlotte Atkinson Art
Everybody has wedding day photos taken on their big day, but what if there was something else that was a little more personal, which you could hang up on the wall of your very first home? Step forward Charlotte Atkinson, who paints gorgeous bespoke artwork which captures your story! By commissioning her to paint the scene at your wedding, you’ll receive a timeless painting that truly is more beautiful than anything you could imagine. We could go on and on about how brilliant this slice of entertainment but as pictures speak a thousand words, we’ll just go ahead and link you to her page!
Grace Notes Gospel
It’s not too surprising to have music at your wedding and most couples tend to go for something like a wedding band, a DJ or even a ceilidh. All wonderful ideas but if you’re looking to perhaps tie into your religious routes or simply have a love for all things American, why not look into booking Grace Notes Gospel choir? As anybody who has seen Sister Act knows, there’s nothing like a gospel choir and Graces Notes Gospel are probably the best in the south west. Blending beautiful harmonies with magnificent musicians, they truly are a group that will surprise you and your wedding guests on the day.
No, that’s not a misspelling! Jass do play jazz but are wholly unexpected in their tunes. Having been going for over fifteen years and wearing outfits that one might expect to see on a barbershop quartet, Jass are a group who do the traditional tunes in a smart way. Able to play a multitude of genres from blues to popular music and more, there’s no need for electricity as they’re fully acoustic and shouldn’t be a problem if your venue sports a sound limiter. All in all, a fab wedding band and one that has worked all across the coast.
Perhaps the most unexpected of all the wedding entertainment listed in this blog, TG Weddings are delighted to present you to Living Topiary. Wonderful for weddings that take place at a spellbinding country home, Living Topiary will at first appear to guests to be human shaped hedges are in fact hedge shaped humans, able to pose for numerous photos, give hugs as required and generally excel at putting smiles on faces! A superb form of entertainment, we can assure you that your guests will definitely not be expecting the living statues of Living Topiary at your wedding.
