HANDFASTING | CHALICE WELL | GLASTONBURY

I was honoured to be asked to cover a blessing at the Chalice Well in Glastonbury. Spiritual blessing/hand-fasting photography requires a different point-of-view (excuse the pun) to traditional wedding photography. Fortunately my flexible, candid style lent itself well to adapting to the variety of blessings taking place during the morning of Julie and Paul’s blessing.

Due to the early (8.00am) start, and the canopy of trees that encompass the Chalice Well Gardens, available light was at a premium and my two prime lenses worked very hard for me.

Julie specifically wanted me to capture nature’s presence at The Chalice Well Gardens in their photographs.

Celebrations took place in the meeting house, located at the gardens. The dining hall was adorned with an ‘English country garden’ theme and splashes of shocking pink.
