Vikki told us, “We contacted a few fairgrounds and decided on Irvin Leisure, a well known company who run fairgrounds all over, including Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. We had a carousel, coconut shy, hoopla, cork shooter and high striker. The aim was to entertain both adults and children alike.”

These gorgeous real weddings show just how amazing it is to have a vintage carousel or full scale circus tent, but you don’t have to turn your whole day into a fairground complete with helter skelter and candyfloss. You can add in little touches of the funfair with a dressing up photo booth, vintage ice cream bicycle hire or giant outdoor games. With colourful decor, vintage fairground style bunting and an emphasis on fun, you can have a fabulous wedding with a fairground look and feel.

The fun can be seen in the photos, from the large illuminated lettering spelling it out to the looks on their faces inside the circus tent.
