V Festival 2011 – Weston Park

The problem with being a wedding photographer is that weddings very often clash with festivals.

Tis year I’ve had to miss most of the best festivals (Download, Hevy, Sonisphere, Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds, Big Chill) due to being booked for weddings the same weekend. I feel like I’ve missed out. A lot! But I’m happy to be so busy with weddings, so…

I’ve shot the V Festival at Weston Park in Staffordshire every year since 2006. I’ve always covered both days but 2011 was the first year a wedding clashed with the Saturday. Luckily, I was still able to go down on the Sunday, and Evelyne & Isaac came along for the day too. It was Isaac’s first ever live gig.

We started with Ziggy (Son of Bob) Marley…

And the headliners… Arctic Monkeys

We had a great day at the festival and I think Isaac had a little crush on KT. Hopefully next summer I’ll get to cover a few more festivals. Fingers crossed!
