I don’t really get that excited by celebrity weddings, but when wedding photographer Woz of Howelljones Photography emailed me and told me he’d shot the secret wedding of Nicolas Cage’s son on an organic farm in Somerset, I was intrigued to say the least! The whole wedding was very low key, super intimate and shrouded in secrecy to avoid the press.

DanielleDawn and Weston had a pagan ceremony followed by a English pub reception. “I got a call from Nic’s agent saying that there will be a wedding on Monday morning in Huntstile Organic Farm, Bridgwater and I need to be there for 10am”, Woz told me. “I didn’t know who it was I photographing until I got there as they didn’t want the press to get hold of it.”

“We all had breakfast in the barn then boarded a tractor and it took us to a stone circle high on a hill near Bridgwater. The pagan ceremony lasted an hour, everybody had to drink from the cup and jump over the sacred sticks.”

“Once the ceremony was finished we all got back on the tractor and headed back down to the farm and then over to The Red Lion, the grottiest boozer you have ever seen! There were multi-millionaires (Dani’s mum owns most of the gyms in LA) walking around this pub that had carpet from the 70s that stuck to your feet. It was pretty amazing!”

“They had dinner in the afternoon, Nic gave a speech, Louis, the jeweller, gave the bride a lump of sacred volcanic rock as a wedding present and that was it! It was really intimate and special, just like a wedding should be, and I was so happy to be a part of it.”

    So lovely to see Huntstile Organic Farm on your website again. You featured my daughter’s wedding a while ago, which was a pagan handfasting at this beautiful stone circle and farm. As mentioned above, just as a wedding should be, totally awesome.

    Very nice photo’s. How nice it is to see that Nicolas Cage’s son doesn’t conform to any religion and to see that Nicolas Cage is open to it.It looks like a very cozy wedding.

  3. We were so happy to be asked to perform the wedding ceremony for Wes & Danielle, we had such a fab day and they were very in touch with how myself Jay and Kestrel held the ceremony, there was so much love and connection from all the people who were witness to the day (even all the Hollywood folk loved it). They all jumped the sticks and made they wishes and all gave blessings to the Bride & Groom. Xx
