Jonathan and Lucy met on a cruise ship when they were both on family holidays and just barely teenagers. Jonathan recalls Lucy stopping to watch him sing Whitney Houston’s “extremely well”, for a 13-year-old as Jonathan puts it.
They became fast friends exploring the cruise ship together but had trouble keeping contact in the days before Facebook and WhatsApp. Years later, Jonathan found lucy’s number when he was preparing to move to London for drama school and now many years later, they now live in London with their dog, Mabel.
On the hunt for an eco-friendly wedding venue, they found South Farm. If you’re not familiar with South Farm, it’s a family-run venue that incredibly eco-friendly and even produces a lot of their own produce that’s served at weddings. Between their farmhouse, barns and gardens, there’s loads of space to work with. They also fell in love with the outdoor ceremony space that South Farm has. And even though they were having an October wedding, they were determined to have their ceremony outside.
If some of the guests and wedding party look familiar, Jonathan is one of the creators of “The Play that Goes Wrong” and a collection of other plays as apart of Mischief Theatre, which has now been expanded to the “The Goes Wrong Show” which is now on BBC 1. It was amazing to see how incredibly tight-knit the entire cast is and how absolutely hilarious they are in real life and I had an absolute blast shooting this wedding.
A big thank you to Lucy and Jonathan and everyone who was at the wedding for making me feel incredibly welcome and a part of the team.
