Hair Glitter Wedding Style

Glitter Festival Makeup or Face Painting

Planning a wedding can be time consuming, when couples hire me to help them continue the planning process, I always get excited when they mentioned children at their wedding. How to keep children entertained at your wedding is an art in itself, with one of my top favourite activities being a glitter festival makeup artist or children's face painter. More often than not, adults get involved with it too as part of the fun! You can usually expect your makeup artist to be there entertaining children for around 1-2 hours, a great way to keep them busy whilst adults are having their welcome drinks.

Hire in Garden Games

Always a popular one with how to keep children entertained at your wedding! Both adults and children love the garden games when it comes to a country wedding and I think it always adds that rustic feel to the vibe.
