Jamie & Luke’s amazing festival wedding, with Amie Seal Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

The jury’s out on whether this is a festival-style wedding, or a festival with a wedding in it. Because this amazing pair’s festival game is strong! All the love for GORGEOUS couple Jamie & Luke for celebrating their way. This wedding / festival rocks its socks off, and we’re all in for the party of the decade!

Our beautiful bride and groom had the look, taste and sound of a real mini festival, with fire dancers (keep scrolling – they’re at the end!) and bands and musicians playing full sets before the DJ took over late in the evening.

Wedding photographer review

Amie was great and listened to all ideas that we had. She made the day really enjoyable!

Your best moment or memory

Walking down the aisle surrounded by so many friends and family (lock down rules for outside weddings had only been lifted 2 weeks prior.) A friend was marrying us and another friend sang Mrs Robinson by Simon and Garfunkel.

Tell us anything you did differently – we love hearing about NEW traditions (or none at all!)

Our confetti was hand dyed rice that was passed out to all our guests. We had a children’s tent with 2 childminders in to help entertain the children. We also had 2 different food vans to give the wedding feel!
Our Fire Dancers were amazing – they were from House of Bonita Entertainment

Venue name + review

We hired 3 teepee style tents from Elite Tents. They were amazing and they were so helpful when the wedding got postponed due to Covid. Wedding was held in Bruntingthorpe, Leicestershire, on my parents land.

Tell us a little about your outfits – both of you!

My dress was by the designer Lillian West and bought from Elia Pearl in Rugby. Suits were hired for the groom and best man.

Ellia Pearl in rugby, just an amazing shop they made me feel comfortable and made the choice very easy!

Florist name + review

The Wild Bee and Me – Sarah Sutton – She was incredible, listened to exactly what I wanted and the flowers were just beautiful

Cake maker name + review

wildflower cakes bakery – Dawn Cunnington – The cake had white icing on the outside and inside had different coloured layers all with different flavoured sponge but was just right and was perfect


Music – As it was a festival themed wedding we had Phil Poole sing us down the aisle and did a second set. James Currey did 2 45 min sets. Steve Faulkner did 2 30 min sets! And we finished it off with the amazing DJ Fitz Samuel who was joined for a while by a saxophone player from light it up

Any crafty projects or homemade styling touches?

First dance song? Playlist recommendations?
