Even when I was growing up, when the circus came to town you knew there was fun to be had. The sweet smell of fairy floss, the warm buttery popcorn. Taking your seat on one of the rickety old chairs and losing your breath as the daring acts came out and the crowd applauded.
While the circus has slightly evolved over the years, that sense of excitement and fun has never gone away and when you combine it with a wedding? Well that’s going to be one pretty fantastic celebration!
Ashton Entertainment has decided to unveil their bevy of circus performers, equipment and vendors to couples wanting a circus feel to their day, There’s the big tops (just right for wedding receptions), the performers (trapeze artists anyone?) and even fairy floss and popcorn machines.
They have two big tops (both white with red trim, just right for circus colours!) and over nine different acts to hire (including ragdoll, serial ring artists, single trapeze artists, Spanish web acts, jugglers and hula hoops). So there’s plenty of entertainment options to choose from to surprise your guests and get them into the mood for your wedding!
If you need some inspiration for just how fantastic a circus wedding can be? Roll up roll up! I’ve rounded up some of my favourites!
