Thai and Josh’s festival wedding was definitely a day to remember. All of the weddings I photograph are fun-packed and have their special moments, but this was different from any other wedding I’ve photographed. The wedding was held at Woodland Valley, a completely organic working farm set in the most amazing Cornish countryside near Laddock, with the ceremony set in a magical looking glen in a patch of nearby woodland.
Thai’s wedding was held in early September, just after the end of the blistering hot summer and when the weather had turned into bursts of daily torrential rain. I was expecting this to be the first wedding I had shot with the bride wearing wellies. As it turned out it was wrong. It was a beautiful sunny day and mostly mud free.
From the moment Thai started making her way along the lantern lit woodland trail, to the timber framed ceremony room the day began to buzz. She had almost two hundred guests for her woodland ceremony, which at 11.00 was an early start. The ceremony was magical, with her guests sitting on Hay bails as she tied the knot with Josh.
In terms of my style, this wedding was perfect for relaxed wedding photography. There was plenty to think about, with a lot of candid shots, couple shots and the obligatory groups of family and friends. Throughout the day there was a string of live bands and a stunning selection of street food from around the world.
This turned out to be a very long day, but it was truly magical.
