When the bride-to-be is an interior designer, you know that her wedding is going to be super stylish… Well Ria and David’s wedding certainly didn’t disappoint and we were delighted to see they hosted their wedding reception at the gorgeous Swanton Morley House & Gardens last September.

If you’ve not yet met this wedding venue the you simply must take a look; Swanton Morley House is located in the heart of the Norfolk countryside and the venue itself is set within 10 acres of beautiful gardens, woodland and meadow.

Ria and David chose Jason Mark Harris Wedding Photography to capture their special day and we’re so pleased to spot some our fave suppliers including The Little Lending Co. and Hélène Millot amongst the talented team.

Notes from the Venue


Ria started her day with her bridal party at the very chic St Giles Boutique Bed & Breakfast in Norwich and we absolutely love the image showing the moment Ria’s Dad first saw his daughter in her elegant lace wedding gown.

Ria and David’s wedding ceremony was held at St Margaret’s Church in Old Catton, Norwich and whilst the skies were cloudy everybody was delighted that the rain held off so that the guests could still enjoy some confetti throwing at the end of the service.

The rain did eventually start upon David and Ria’s arrival at Swanton Morley House & Gardens but this did not deter them from getting some lovely shots on our tree lined drive and in the woodland whilst guests enjoyed drinks and canapés

June Wedding Flowers at Swanton Morley House & Gardens


Before I got married, my idea of a floral display was sticking some supermarket-bought lilies in a vase and thinking I was oh-so-chic. I cringe a little at this thought. However, it was during my wedding planning that suddenly my floral heart was set alight and boy have I made up for it since!

My own summer wedding bouquet was a wild and frothy affair and my house is now scattered with bud vases galore and the odd statement seasonal display.

Now, when styling shoots, one of the most exciting parts for me is working with the florist and many of our beautiful wedding venues have talented in-house florists, just like Swanton Morley. Located in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, this venue is set within 10 acres of beautiful gardens, woodland and meadow.

The gardens change greatly with the seasons, but to celebrate the recent British Flowers Week the team are showcasing a riot of summer colour in this pretty June Wedding Flowers inspiration piece!


Notes from Swanton Morley House & Gardens



We were delighted this month to be joining in with British Flower Week, a nationwide campaign organised by New Covent Garden Market to support and promote British flowers and foliage. So, for this months look at British flowers for weddings in June we thought we would do something extra special to celebrate this great event!

As the rhododendrons in our woodland garden are still looking magnificent, together with our in-house florist Penny we decided to use this area as our backdrop. These flowers were used to create an elegant vase arrangement in our circle garden. We finished the look with scrumptious blueberry cakes, meringues and a glass of fizz – perfect for an afternoon tea wedding celebration on a warm day in June!
