In many ways the UK is a very forward thinking, literal place to live. Gay marriage is legal, you can drink at 18 and not attending church every Sunday is generally not frowned upon. However when it comes to wedding legalities, Britain can be a little strict on the rules. You can’t, for example, legally marry outdoors. You are only able to wed at an officially consecrated place with an officially appointed person officiating the ceremony. However Lucy and J’s dream was to have an outdoor humanist ceremony at Oxon Hoath in Kent, so despite the English weather and the English laws, they did just that (they did of course have to do the legal thing as well.)
I am loving the following details about this wedding – Lucy’s dress and shrug combo was from Joanne Fleming Design in Brighton, UK and their completely unique rings were designed and made by the couple themselves. Lucy’s gorgeous bouquet was from Darling and Wild with the rest of the flowers all being done themselves who visited Covent Garden wholesale flower market to buy the blooms. Their uber cool twist on the traditional boutonnerie were again made by the couple themselves using white peacock feathers, leaves from the grounds of the venue and old buttons are pretty damn gorgeous though right?
Ahh England, I still love you.

Check it out…
From Ryan Brenizer, the photographer:
Who could be more fitting of a rock ‘n’ roll couple than groom who owns an indie record label? I have never heard wedding music like this, from booked bands to guests getting up and jamming … and actually being astonishingly good. Then you add that the couple are bot professional artists, she wore periwinkle, he wore olive, they made their own rings, and even constructed the wedding venue out of a rock venue, the Brooklyn Lyceum!
I only wish I could post every single photograph right here (but I would them be responsible for the world’s longest post!) instead go check out their slideshow.
