Anna and Myles were married with the most incredible, laser-filled festival wedding at Deepdale Farm, York, I’ve photographed to date.

But before I get to that, I should explain how I came to be their wedding photographer.

Several years ago, when I first turned professional, I wanted to improve my dancefloor pictures, so I started to cover random club nights to practice taking pictures in dark settings with lots of flashing lights.

By far the best of those nights were the Illuminaughty events, trance and dance-filled indoor festivals where production values were top priority, and the punters went all-out with their outfits (you can see some of my clubland pics at https://www.robclaytonphotography.co.uk/p69662765 - most of them were from the Illuminaughty nights).

And it just so happens that two of those people helping to organise the Illuminaughty events were Anna and Myles.

Fast forward to a few months ago, and when I saw on Facebook that Anna was looking for a photographer for a date that I was free on, curiosity got the better of me and I got in touch…the rest, as they say….

I think its fair to say I was particularly excited about their wedding – pyrotechnics, flow performances and the bride’s dj set all featured on their timeline, amongst lots of other cool atypical wedding things.

My day began at Anna’s bridal prep until she was loaded into the pristine VW campervan to head to Deepdale Farm, where Myles and guests was awaiting her arrival.

The ceremony itself was amazing, led by one of their friends, and with pyrotechnics going off during the vows….definitely a first for me!

And then it was….chill time.

Bearing in mind their wedding was on the hottest day of the year, that it was such a relaxed day was just perfect.

And to make it even more perfect – and positively blowing my mind in the process – as I was taking pictures of the room set-up before their wedding breakfast, completely unexpectedly my favourite musician of the last few years came on over the speakers.

MC Xander is a street musician who creates the most awesome and complex tracks using nothing but his voice, some beatboxing and a loopstation – its fair to say, I had never anticipated hearing his music at a wedding, but it turns out that Myles is also a big fan of his.

Check out the exact MC Xander song (one of my faves) they played at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Mg2deSkgoE

Back to the wedding, and the speeches during the wedding breakfast were some of the funniest I’ve heard.

I should also comment on the best man, who casually mentioned at some point during his speech that half the people in attendance had stayed at his house at one point or another. As curiosity got the better of him, he asked those that had to raise their hand. There was me expecting maybe 6 or 7 scattered hands to go up. But no, literally half the people there seemed to put their hands in the air….it was most amusing to me at the time.

Special mention also to Hog Roast Yorkshire, who made me one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had in my life. Those that know me well would know I would never say such a thing if it weren’t true. Genuinely outstanding pizza, and very friendly service too....needless to say at this point, but very highly recommended.

After dinner there was a bit more chill time, where guests could take advantage of the obstacle course, Myles’ homemade heavy-duty (read: bloody huge) catapult, the bouncy castle, the hammocks, the water-pistols, the table-football, the designated chill zone or just enjoy the weather and soak in the atmosphere.

Before the night time activities truly kicked off, Anna made a transformation and reappeared in more suitable party gear with a bridal twist, and shortly after took to the decks for her own dj set, accompanying by a quality live MC.

One of the things I had loved about the Illuminaughty lights was their lasers, so it pleased me no end that they had not one, not two, not three, but four huge laser machines shooting rays across the dancefloor.

And that was my encounter of Anna and Myles’ wedding, easily one of the coolest I’ve ever photographed.

Another huge, huge congrats to the happy ravers.

And here is but a small selection of my images from their day:
