We have some wonderful wedding photos to share with you today!
Jess & Adam got together at Glastonbury music festival nine years ago. Glastonbury weekend 2017 they tied the knot at their very own festival themed wedding at the beautiful Ridge Farm Studios in Dorking, Surrey.
Ridge Farm, hidden away on the Surrey-Sussex border at the edge of the Surrey Hills, is a venue with an illustrious history that somewhat compliments the festival theme of this wedding. In 1975 a barn at the farm became one of the first residential recording studios in the UK hosting artists such as Roxy Music, Queen and Ozzy Osbourne. In the early 00’s it closed it’s doors as a recording studio & over time transformed itself into one of Surrey’s premier wedding locations.
Perhaps choosing the same weekend as Glastonbury Festival for their wedding, Jess & Adam shouldn’t have been too surprised that the June day was slightly grey & overcast. Thankfully it didn’t rain & so we missed the traditional festival mud-bath!
Weather aside, it was still a glorious day & quite possibly one of the most fun weddings we have photographed!
Jess & Adam, thank your choosing us to be a part of your special day. Here are a few of our favourite photos!

Jess & her bridesmaids got ready in the cottage at Ridge Farm.
Jess father came to collect her to take her to the Church.
Adam’s brother was his best man!
An open topped vintage bus took Adam & his groomsmen to the Church, later bring the guests back to Ridge Farm for the reception.
The couple said their vows at the traditional St John’s Church in Horsham, a family friend conducting the ceremony.
Jess was pleased to say ‘I do’!
Ridge Farm is a beautiful wedding venue. Jess & her bridesmaids had use of the bridal suite the morning of the wedding, her & Adam staying the night of their nuptials.
Whilst the bride & groom had the luxury of the main house & the bridal suite, their guests camped in the grounds!
As the guests arrived at Ridge Farm for the reception they were treated to drinks on the patio & music by one of the groomsmen.
The wedding breakfast was held in the pool house which was decorated beautifully by Mad Lilies (the following day, the dance floor was rolled back to open up the pool & all the guests who had camped over night joined the bride & groom for a pool party!)
In homage to where Jess & Adam got together & the festival theme to the wedding the tables at the wedding breakfast were all named after stages at Glastonbury Festival!
The usual Father-of-the-bride, groom & best man’s speeches ensued. Andrew, played the role of best man perfectly embarrassing Adam with tales from the stag do!
Jess & Adam had a very brief first dance before their friends & family joined them on the dance floor & the partying commenced!
