Laura & Dave – a woodland wedding

Longton Wood wedding photography

Laura & Dave had a fabulous, fun (and dare I say a little bit drunken) wedding at Longton Wood in Kent, with a humanist ceremony, yet more pizza (pizza at all weddings please, especially if your wedding caterer can provide Mozzarisella 😉 ), frames in the woods, woodsmoke, festoons and a band with a banjo.

Outdoor-y woodland venues like this that act as a blank canvas for your ideas are some of my faves, who wouldn’t want to get married under a canopy of trees with the earth under their feet? Ditto humanist ceremonies – they are always so personal and bespoke and pretty much all of my favourites are humanist or celebrant led. There’s some talk of legalising them in much the same way as in Scotland, which would give couples much more flexibility about how they can marry.
