As vegan wedding photographers there is nothing more exciting than being asked to photograph a fully vegan wedding…firstly because you KNOW the food is going to be amazing. But also because it is such a joy to work with couples and vendors who share your ethics and lifestyle!
Charlie and Lorelle were married at The Barn at Willerby, in Hull, UK. Charlie is the vegan of the couple, and felt so strongly that the wedding should be all plant based that she got everybody fully on board! The vibe of the whole day was simple…vegan, ethical, very glittery and full of fun.
After spending the morning together, the couple got into their outfits separately so they could surprise each other at the aisle.Charlie opted for a bespoke made waistcoat and matching bow tie (with a glitter woven fabric because there is never enough glitter for a bride) and a pair of VERY cool vegan Doc Martens. Lorelle wore a beautiful fitted wedding dress with a pair of heels, which were a good move because as you can see she is teeny and Charlie is lovely and tall!
A short and sweet ceremony surrounded by close family and friends was followed by a photo session in the beautiful grounds of the barn and in true British tradition it absolutely poured down halfway through. Most excitingly though that meant that when we went back out to take some more portraits a huge rainbow appeared! It was the most fitting and perfect moment we could have asked for!
Back inside, Scrummy Crumb brought their absolute A game for the catering….a variety of different flavored Vegan pies with home cooked chips. We went for one of each, ‘chicken’ and mushroom and ‘steak’ and ale, and can attest that they were nothing short of genius! Scrummy Crumb also provided the beautiful Vegan wedding cake and dessert table for the wedding. We also managed to go home with an abundance of sweet treats courtesy of the couple and can attest that they too were absolutely delicious!
What was lovely is that everyone on the day, regardless of their own usual diets, loved the food and fully supported Charlie and Lorelle’s vision for their day. Grandparents, kids, friends, everyone tucked in and raved about the food…so goes to show that if you are hoping to plan a vegan wedding yourself, you don’t need to worry too much about what your guests think…just make it tasty and they won’t care!
After tummies were filled, and some teary eyed speeches, everyone got their sparkle on at the Glitter Bar and hit the dance floor. There was glitter in beards, glitter on faces, and festival style face gems too. Everyone got in on it, even Grandad, and you can guarantee everyone was finding that glitter for weeks to come!
Charlie and Lorelle’s day was the perfect blend of ethics and lifestyle meets frivolous fun and was everything a wedding day should be…because it was so representative of them as a couple!
