John and Naomi were very kind to invite me to their colourful glamping wedding at Harvest Moon Holidays earlier this year, I had such a wonderful time and enjoyed the wedding so much I couldn’t help but share some snaps. It’s not often I attend a wedding as a guest, and when I do I like to let my hair down! which usually involves leaving my heavy DSLR at home swapping instead for a tipple or two and and some iphone and instax snaps! well this is the theory anyway.. I did happen to bring my camera with me, just incase and so glad I did.
Harvest Moon is a glamping site complete with awesome safari style tents for guests and enough space for a large marquee. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as a first time glamper but the tents were amazing! Our tent slept 6 with 2 bedrooms and what can only really be best described as a double cupboard, which I think despite our initial worries was the coziest ‘room’ in the tent. The living area was spacious with a large dining table, small kitchen and seated area heated by a stove and lit by candlelight, we even had our own private outdoor toilet and heated shower! The wedding weekend kicked off on Friday evening with a 1920’s cocktail party complete with swing band and fish n’ chip van, amazing fun and a good excuse to dress up 🙂
The beautiful music filled wedding ceremony was at a nearby church in Whitekirk. I didn’t take many shots leaving that to the to the official photographers and I’m a great believer in enjoying the ceremony as a guest with your eyes and not your camera which I surely did 🙂 afterwards we made our way back to the campsite for bubbly before settling down in the marquee for our curry! yes curry!! YUM. Naomi and John decorated the marquee beautifully, with colourful lanterns, bunting, pictures with their friends and family and beautiful flowers, arranged by a family friend and LOTS more, it really was an amazing effort and made us all feel very spoilt! The evening kicked off with a fire dancing performance from one of the guests, it was nothing short of amazing! followed by a ceilidh and incredibly hilarious silent disco and we danced the night away till the small hours! It really was a fabulous day.
One of the great benefits of having your wedding at a site like this is you can enjoy the weekend with your guests, after a rather long lie in and Sunday BBQ we nipped off for a splash in the sea before settling down for the evening infront of the campfire with games, music and another few tipples, it really felt like a mini getaway, no phone reception, a beach, a campfire and lots of friends, bliss 🙂
John and Naomi, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your day and kindly allowing me to share these pictures. Photo credits to me and my handsome and talented assistant Sam 😉
