Well, this was something a bit different! Before I start I have been asked to make the following very clear…
This was a one off so please don’t contact Michael Eavis regarding using the Glastonbury Festival site for a wedding venue.
I recently flew down to Bristol to cover this unique wedding. Alice and Matt are huge Glastonbury fans and go every year but every 5th year the festival is not on to allow for the land to recover. To make up for the year off, Alice & Matt managed to pull some strings and have their wedding reception up by the stone circle on Worthy Farm.
Being a Glastonbury fan myself I jumped at the opportunity to photograph this wedding!
The ceremony was in a beautiful church in the village of Pilton and we even got a little photo with Michael Eavis outside the church!
Then we went onto the Stone Circle where they had setup a big top, a kids tent, sofas and a make shift bar. £1 a pint! The attention to details was excellent, even down to the Glastonbury font being used on all the signs and the paper pint sized Brothers Cider Glastonbury cups! Dinner is also worth a mention with superb Pieminister Pie and mash.
The photo shoot was great fun, it was so weird to the frame of the Pyramid Stage! Thanks for Matt & Alice for climbing to the top of the Glastonbury bin mountain as it made for a super shot. We then done a group shot which I got everyone to hold hands in a circle for and I went up in a hot air balloon to take the photo.
The Glastonbury rain then came tumbling down and we headed into the big top for bands and a fancy dress! Despite the rain we still managed to get the fires around the stone circle going which was a lovely way to end this fabulous wedding.
