Jo & Ali’s festival wedding

There are so many things I love about this wedding – and I’m not the only one! Featured on top wedding blog Love My Dress, free-spirited bohemian inspiration blog Festival Brides and an article on Huffington Post about genius wedding ideas, it was such fun to photograph.

Jo & Ali’s fabulous Glastonbury-inspired festival wedding on a rainy day in Oxford was full of personal touches, quirky details and handmade items. Jo created a stunning look with a veil over her stylish pixie haircut, short dress, gorgeous heels with a lucky sixpence (later swapped for pink flip-flops) and personalised nail art. They had masses of bright, locally grown flowers arranged in an eclectic collection of teapots, rugby-playing superhero figures on top of their cake and miles of homemade bunting. After a moving ceremony in the beautiful Catholic Church of Saint Gregory and Augustine they travelled in style (vintage buses for guests, an orange campervan for the couple) to The Perch, a lovely pub by the river. Here they enjoyed picnic style sharing feasts, laughter-filled speeches and took advantage of a break in the rain for riverside portraits at dusk. They ended the night with a silent disco that had everyone on their feet. Jo and Ali each created a playlists of their favourites and with the headphones’ coloured lights showing which playlist guests were listening to, there was lots of hilarity as new songs started, two very different dancing styles mixed or people were persuaded to switch over!

                                                    

Jo & Ali chose ‘Flaws’ by Bastille for their first dance – I loved this acoustic version and used it for their wedding story slideshow:
