The colourful, Glastonbury-inspired festival wedding of Lucy + Ollie at Southover House, Dorset

Glastonbury-inspired festival wedding

With Glastonbury playing a crucial part in their love story, Lucy and Ollie always knew their wedding would be festival-themed; but they really went above and beyond with Lolliefest at Southover House in Dorset!

Making things bright and colourful with a ribbon installation just like the ribbon tower they got engaged on top of, but keeping it elegant and chic with bohemian styling and pastel bridesmaids, they had a day that was totally Worthy (geddit?). Plus, they had wedding pizza and AN AFTERPARTY DISCO BASEMENT. Best wedding ever?

What was your favourite part of the day?

Their whole day was a dream to shoot, was so refreshing and so well put together, but the dancing in the evening was especially amazing.

These guys met at a festival and clearly know their music… as do all their friends and family! As a result, the dancefloor was always packed and everyone was on such good form that it was a dream to photograph and just loads of fun. Guests were singing up on stage, people were going up on shoulders and – lest I forget – there was a pizza van outside serving amazing pizza. Definitely had a few slices of that after the band finished their first set!

The English, Downton Abbey Elopement of Esther & Carlos…

Elopement to England…

You may recognise this beauty… the gorgeous Esther!

Esther & Carlos’ wedding appeared in our new Autumn/Winter Magazine (if you haven’t seen it yet you can see it here,) and I wanted to share it on the blog too because I love it so much!

It’s one of my favourites… I don’t know whether its because of the gorgeous pink 50’s dress, the chic styling details or simply they fact they wanted an intimate wedding so they decided to eloped from LA over to England and got married in a castle!

Why you love this wedding…

I adored that Esther and Carlos focused on what was important to them and followed their dreams of travelling from LA to marry in a castle in the UK with their closest friends.

What were the couple’s requirements…

Esther and Carlos were eloping and they wanted me to capture a little bit of their getting ready, their ceremony and the drinks reception they shared with their friends in the beautiful castle grounds.
