O my goodness, I don’t even know where to start with how amazing Ana & Dave’s festival wedding was!! Everything was just utterly utterly brilliant, from the way it looked, to the weather, to the food, to the music, to how lovely everyone was…wow.
Ana & Dave’s festival wedding was held at Holton Lee in Poole, which is a big field just perfect for big outside parties. The grounds hold a wedding license, and because the sun was shining they were lucky enough to get to say their vows in front of family and friends, outside surrounded by fabulous views of the neighboring countryside.
After the ceremony, guests mingled and chatted over handfuls of popcorn and summer drinks, whilst we took the opportunity to take the family photos and of course, throw some confetti.
Next it was time for the food, and Dave & Ana had the brilliant idea of having picnics on the tables; so guests were still seated but each table had a hamper on it containing yummy salads, pies, cheese and breads. This got all the tables sharing the food together which just added to the warm atmosphere. After speeches and cutting the awesome rice crispy cake, we went off into the woods for their couple shots, just as the light was starting to dim slightly.
Once back at the festival, the bands were just getting started – first up were a cider lovin’ West Country band which got everyone in the mood for the party. Even when the rain suddenly started pouring down, the dancing wasn’t interrupted, especially when a glorious rainbow then appeared over the whole of the festival.
Absolutely one of the most brilliant days I’ve ever been lucky enough to capture, thank you so much for having me as your wedding photographer! A huge thank you to Clare West as well who shot alongside me, many of these photos are taken by her too.
