Somerset Stone Circle Celebrity Wedding

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.”

“We didn’t want a traditional wedding”, they began. “We just wanted to have a big party for all our friends and closest family. We got GUS GUS, the most popular dance music band here in Iceland, as a surprise for our guests at the wedding. After the band, the DJs played until morning. We also had light bacon and egg brunch for everybody the day after, before they have to drive back to Reykjavík.”

Voodoo and Pagan Witch Wedding Shoot

Paola De Paola Weddings

As an ex goth, I can’t help being attracted to dark art in general”, began Lauren of French Made, who provided the cakes for this shoot. “Plus my recent obsession with the series called ‘Vikings’ and their Pagan way of life gave me inspiration. I was lucky enough to find a fabulous team of wedding suppliers as ready as I am to push the boundaries and willing to get involved and create the most eye pleasing alternative bridal styled shoot.”

“I chose to cover my tiered cake with ivory icing and skin tone butter cream as well as adding fur, leather, antique styled lace, feathers, bronze coloured studs and a Pagan symbols charm. My naked single tier decorated with a badger skull and a flower which was sitting on a wood stand reflected the rustic aspect of the shoot.”
