Jo and Jonathan were married in June at Wise Wedding Venue in Kent. They wanted an outdoor ceremony, and a laid back reception so a festival themed day it was!
“We set out and pretty much achieved our dream of a sustainable wedding themed around our love of Glastonbury Festival, New Orleans, music and movies”, said the bride. “We ensured everything was either second hand, locally sourced or would be used again. A lot of our guests camped to really keep that festival vibe alive and save on travel through the weekend.”
The bride’s outfit was comprised of a navy blue tulle skirt which she bought on Etsy and a top from Brighton Lace. The couple had a very unique idea for their rings too. “We always wanted to make our wedding rings together and we came up with the idea of finding metal which was special to us”, Jo said. “We took a long shot and wrote to Michael & Emily Eavis at Worthy Farm to politely ask if we could have some metal from the farm site to put in our rings to tap into that special feeling that runs through the ground in Glastonbury. To our amazement (and eternal gratitude) we were given a chunk from the old Pyramid Stage. We then struggled for months to find a jeweller who would work with the metal and luckily found Shelley Thomas at the Forge at London Museum of Steam & Water, who not only wanted to work with us but allowed us to create bespoke silver rings ourselves with the nuggets of Pyramid metal inside. So we now have a bit of the Glastonbury Festival, which has been such a massive part of our relationship, inside the rings we crafted together. Following our wedding day, we went straight to the festival this year and had an incredible honeymoon in the fields of Avalon! ”
