Amazing Festival Style Garden Lego Wedding
During these difficult times of the lockdown restrictions and social distancing, the chances of shooting a wedding are zero. So, imagine how thrilled I was when lego figure couple, Molly & Colin, asked me to be the photographer for their incredible festival style, garden, Lego wedding!
Fortunately, the world of Lego has been unaffected by Covid-19, so Molly & Colin were able to go ahead with their festival themed wedding as planned and the weather was amazing.
In the year when pretty much all outdoor events have had to be put on hold – including the 50th anniversary of Glastonbury, festival lovers, Molly & Colin, decided to bring the feel of the festival to their super chilled-out, boho wedding in the fields of deepest Cambridgeshire.
For these Ely based 24-hour plastic people it was crucial that all of the guests got to enjoy the day as much as them – a celebration for all. Plans were made for all the guests to stay with the bride & groom overnight, in tents and tipis as the newlyweds had a superb glamping set up with fairy lights and an outdoor hot tub.
A stage area was set up for talented guests to do impromptu performances and well known guitarist, “El Mexicano”, was scheduled for a headline performance.
Molly & Colin specifically wanted a humanist wedding ceremony and chose Lucy the celebrant to do the honours. The emotional guests sat on hay bales in the heat of the midsummer sunshine during the service.
After the ceremony, guests were wowed by the magic of illusionist “Dynoman” as the younger generation took countless selfies on their phones. As the day progressed, the drinks flowed and fits of laughter could often be heard coming from the direction of the Photo Booth with it’s array of props and fancy dress items.
After capturing the action with my camera, I managed to catch up with the couple to get some stunning portraits; it was difficult (well impossible actually) to keep the smiles of their faces. Colin’s wit constantly had his new wife in a fit of giggles. I love that the images have captured their playful personalities so perfectly.
For the first dance, the happy couple were serenaded by the exquisite flamenco guitar skills of superstar “El Mexicano” who then went onto the stage for a fantastic 45 minute solo set.
The day was rounded off perfectly with the incredible DJ Brickhead spinning out some bangers on the decks as the sun set on a on a truly incredible day.
The theme song from The Lego Movie is “Everything Is Awesome” and for this happy Lego couple it really was.
