FIESTA FIELDS / CANVAS & LIGHT OPEN WEEKEND

A few weeks back we hosted our first joint Fiesta Fields / Canvas & Light Open weekend at our gorgeous Hidden Valley in Godalming. It’s been a crazy two months and only just getting a chance to share these pics with you now.

We wanted to provide a really relaxed event where couples could view one of our beautiful venues set up for a festival style wedding, with stunning white tipis and a host of other awesome suppliers.

Over the months and weeks in the run up we were busy firming up the suppliers that would help us deliver the full festival wedding vibe.

Clare from Turmeric House – resident stylist at Canvas & Light – was involved throughout as she was leading the styling of the giant hat tipis to perfection.

Last, but by no means least - the talented lady who was here there and everywhere, capturing all these gorgeous shots - Abigail. Abigail has a passion for photo as well as film and also produced a fab little film for us too, which you can see below. Abigail White Photo + Film

It was a great team, a great weekend and we hope everyone who paid us a visit enjoyed themselves and felt a little bit (or a big bit) inspired.
