Some friends of ours got married last weekend, in true hippie style – it was a three-day camping event, complete with tipis and bonfires and the whole works. It was really like a rainbow gathering with style.
We could only make it for the main ceremony and feast; it was great to see all the work that went in to setting it all up, and all our friends dressed for the occasion.
Even the dog had a matching tux on
The ceremony began with all the guests walking down a flower-petal strewn path and being smudged with purifying smoke
The kids watched eagerly, waiting for the bride to appear
She finally came out, looking like a goddess
The ceremony was beautiful, with a celebrant, and several people making prayers and blessings, some songs played, and speeches, all the while people were blowing bubbles and throwing feathers and flower petals.
It was loads of fun, and great to see so many of our friends :)
