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!

Why you love this wedding…

We just loved working with Claire and Ollie, they had a real vision for the feel they wanted to create on their wedding day. It’s (more often than not) coming from a place of love when family and friends are a little sceptical of your ideas but they stuck to their guns and we know you’ll agree that it was a BEAUTIFUL celebration, what an inspiration!

What were the couple’s requirements…

For the couple it was super important to feel that the wedding had its particular look and feel. Claire’s day job is marketing, so she knew how important ‘brand’ is to a persons experience. Here’s what she had to say “Brand is not a logo. It’s design, colour, the formality or informality of the words, the way the staff at the reception greet guests, it’s everything. Everything came back to: sailing, glam, English Riviera, 8 colours.”
