Lizzie and Nick were halfway to planning a traditional white wedding when they decided to do a 180 and decided to get hitched at Glastonbury instead! They wanted to create a joyful, silly, stress-free celebration of their love that they’d remember forever, and choose their happy place their location. Armed with £1000, they did the admin part in London the morning of the wedding and then hotfooted it down to Somerset to have a friend officiate a ceremony that they wrote themselves.

They decided against having a defined format for their ceremony in order to keep things experimental and most importantly, fun! Lizzie wrote a poem for Nick, and Nick in turn wrote a speech. With Sean Paul announced as the surprise headliner for the John Peel stage that day, their friend did a reading of the lyrics to Temperature between speeches – not your regular heartfelt wedding reading, but it turned out sweet nonetheless!

Afterwards, they ran down a makeshift aisle through a cloud of confetti and then carried on their festival experience! Having their celebration at a festival meant everything – food, music, decor, vibe – was all sorted, so they were able to celebrate instead of project-manage. It was important to the couple to hire a photographer who, much to their surprise, they found via the Glastonbury Reddit, in order to share the experience with their friends and family who were unable to be there. 

The worst thing for Lizzie and Nick was how hard they found it not having their families there. “We plan on celebrating separately with them, and they were all super supportive of our decision but it’s fair to say that they were disappointed not to be included. From the conversations I’ve had with people though, it sounds like you can never plan a wedding that places everyone anyway – so I guess this is just part of the package.”

  7. The dress – feathers make me beam with happiness! Eating outdoors – how wonderful is that? One of the most stunning flower crowns I’ve seen made even more striking with that bouquet complimenting it. Morris dancers. The tent. The smiles and joy throughout these images! So wonderful. I am in love with this wedding, quite frankly. x
