The Wedding Fete Ultimate Guide 2023

Are you planning a wedding fete?  Do you want a touch of the biohemian This is our ultimate package for those who want a real vintage fete at their wedding. picture this: all your guests turning up at you venue to see bunting fluttering in the breeze and a "wedding fete" waiting for them to play on. As guests approach your caterer would offer them a glass of Pimm’s and we would offer them a stick of candyfloss or a bag of popcorn to eat whilst all the other guests arrive. They can then take their pick of stalls to play on. The stalls are popular with all ages and their appeal is timeless.

We can also supply hay bales for your guests to sit on complete with covers so they don’t ruin their best dress/suit! We can create a perfect fete feel anywhere with our bunting stands, we also have a massive selection of bunting in a range of colours to suit any colour schemes you might have.

We would also supply a few of our garden games such as giant connect 4, Giant Jenga, quoits, noughts and crosses and our huge tug of war rope which would make for a great group shot!

Whilst the wedding breakfast takes place we would change everything over ready for evening guests perhaps putting up festoon lighting. We also have a photobooth which will match all our other items which we can setup in the evening for you for all you guests to play with. This can come in a number of themes or be adapted to suit your day best.

As an extra special treat for guests we could set up a couple of our rustic stalls filled with goodies. Choose from any of the following: Pick and mix stall, chocolate fountains, popcorn stall, chocolate heaven stall or our cheese stall with a range of local Sussex cheeses.

Our ultimate package would look something like this but can be tailored exactly to what you want.


  • Village halls
  • Barns
  • Traditional canvas marquee in a field
  • Farmers outbuildings
  • If you’re prepared to phone around and do some research there are some amazing venues out there, particularly village halls if you’re on a budget


  • Table centre piece could include wildflowers, recycled glass jars adorned in twine or hessian
  • Hay bales make great informal seating options.
  • Funfair stalls
  • Bunting


  • Wildflowers
  • Flowers in jam jars or old quirky bottles


  • Brides arriving on the back of a Land rover defender would be pretty cool!
  • Perhaps a farmer with a trailer like you see at the Pick Your Own farms would be another idea


  • food trucks
  • hog roast
  • Picnic – beg, borrow and steal hampers, combine this with some new picnic blankets to match your wedding day theme and off you go.
  • BBQ
  • afternoon tea – maybe use a local baker to help with this or outside caterers

Games and entertainment

  • Fete games such as coconuts shy, tin can alley, hoopla

  • Quirky games – welly wanging springs to mind
  • Competitions like guess the amount of sweets in the jar combined with your guest book might be quite nice
  • Circus workshop – a variety of circus workshop toys to play with and let guests show off their skills. Juggling, plate spinning, hula hooping, diabolo
