An unconventional Festival-Themed Wedding in the Heart of the Pennines

Well, what a day! I absolutely loved coming along to celebrate these two people tying the knot in their own unique way. This festival-inspired union combined love, laughter, and some seriously good tunes, all set against the backdrop of rolling hills and a relaxed, joyful atmosphere.

The Festival Atmosphere:

The wedding was a celebration of Emily and Antony’s jubilant spirit with a backdrop of an outdoor music festival. Guests were greeted by whimsically decorated tents and vibrant banners fluttering in the Pennine breeze, creating a festive atmosphere reminiscent of a Viking gathering.

The Relaxed Vibe:

One of the hallmarks of this festival-inspired Viking wedding was its relaxed and joyous vibe. From the outset, it was evident that the couple wished to celebrate their love with a carefree spirit, mirroring the essence of a festival. Laughter and music filled the air, and guests embraced the occasion with open hearts, embodying the very definition of a joyous celebration.

Alternative Ceremony in a natural environment:

The ceremony took place in the tipi, with the rolling Pennine hills serving as the perfect natural amphitheater. Guests gathered around, seated on benches with blankets and cushions, creating an intimate and cozy setting. As the couple exchanged vows, there were some lovely emotional moments, plus a few comical parts too, which captured their fun-loving personalities.

Capturing Unforgettable Moments:

From the couple’s grand entrance to the joyful dance celebrations, every moment was a delightful photograph waiting to be captured. We were thrilled to document the genuine smiles, hearty laughter, and the pure love shared among family and friends, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Pennine hills.


Emily and Antony’s festival-themed wedding set against the rolling hills of the Pennines was a visual feast and a heartwarming celebration of love. The festival-inspired ambiance added an air of merriment and relaxation, making this wedding a memorable affair for everyone involved. As a photographer, I was absolutely honoured to be a part of this extraordinary day, capturing the love that these two have for each other and happiness their guests felt just being there to witness it.
