Bridal Catsuits for the Ultimate Alternative Festival Wedding

Throwing convention to the curb:
Wedding inspo for festival lovers and catsuit kings & queens

Festivals and weddings are both fabulous excuses to get ridiculously dressed up and have the best time ever but what if it's YOUR wedding?! Are you brave enough to ditch the the dress or suit and don a bridal catsuit instead?

We threw our very own 'faux' festival wedding - complete with cake and a lot of disco balls to give you an idea of what your special day could look like.

Glam festival boots with white organza laces complete the look - Terry De Havilland

The creators of our 'Disco Dreamer' Festival Wedding


Hannah & Stu from Night Jar Events absolutely nailed the decor for our alternative festival wedding theme. Based in Bath, they create beautiful installations for weddings, festivals, parties, carnivals, shop windows... you think it - they will decorate it.

In true Burnt Soul style, they’re specifically an eco-conscious company and everything is either reused or donated after use.

The balloons are also made from 100% latex, a natural material made from the sap of a rubber tree. They can be composted and take as much time as an acorn to biodegrade.

Festival Wedding Hair and Make up | Rebecca Rose Robinson

An OG Burnt Soul superpower, Rebecca has been involved in some of our best shoots in the past, both behind the camera and in front of it.

This initial shoot concept was thanks to Rebecca, who dreamt up an alternative festival style wedding to showcase our new Starstruck catsuits alongside with her make up creations.

We're so in love with the hair and make up that married so perfectly with our holographic catsuits, and that flower crown hair is everything we've ever dreamed of! We love Rebecca for her festival glam but she shines in all kinds of make up from editorial and fashion to more avante garde performance looks.

Festival Wedding Location | Beese's Riverside Bar

Known as Bristol's best kept secret, this beautiful bar and cafe on the riverfront was the perfect location for our sparkly, alternative festival wedding shoot.

Perfect for a lunch and even pop just outside the cafe for a quick dip in the river (a wetsuit might be advised in the chillier months!)

Now open weekdays and weekends, but check our their website for more info.

Post lock Beese's was able to re-open and we're all ready for a little river swim!

Festival Wedding Photographer | Luis Cruz

We've worked with Luis on some of our past shoots and can always rely on him to create the most incredible photos with a sprinkle of magic.

Available for headshots, editorial, fashion shoots and more, Luis specialises in making people look amazing. He has a spectacular eye for detail and made our (often chilly) models feel completely at ease.

The final edits were *chefs kiss* perfect!

Festival Wedding Cake | Joanna Pyda Cake Studio

Joanna is an award winning wedding cake designer, specialising in elegant and contemporary special occasion cakes.

Joanna only had a day to whip this beauty up and it was a real showstopper. The vanilla masterpiece looked beautiful next to all the decor and we can confirm it tastes as good as it looks.

We went for the naked style tiered cake with lilac florals to finish, it didn't last long after the shoot when the rest of the crew dug in!

Our very own head seamstress Hannah is also a self taught nail artist (lucky us!) and did some super on-brand sparkly nails for our bride Clara.

Festival Wedding Models | Clara and Cam

We always love working with the beautiful Clara who's a friend of the brand and absolute babe to have on set. It's guaranteed good vibes when we're shooting with Clara and Cam was just as fab.

Cam is an actor and all round man of many talents, Cam stepped up for us pretty last minute and we're so glad he did. He absolutely smashed it and they're couple goals for sure!
