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

We’re kicking off this, the last Monday of January, with a dash of romance thanks to Penny from The Little Lending Co. Penny pulled together a team of creative faves for this lovely elopement shoot that centres around Godwick Hall, the house at Godwick Great Barn in Norfolk.
The romance dial is turned up a notch as the models in this shoot are actually a newlywed couple – Joel & Aimee. These gorgeous folks also just happen to be the owners of Godwick and we quite frankly love them.
So grab that coffee, settle in and enjoy… You might just want to run away with Godwick Hall.
Notes from The Little Lending Co.
This elopement shoot was designed with the beautiful backdrop of Godwick Hall in mind, which is a stunning Georgian hall that has been tastefully refurbished to combine classical elegance with modern luxury and style. Godwick Hall is a licensed wedding venue for up to 30 people that specialises in small and intimate weddings from 2 – 30 people. If you’re hoping to head somewhere exclusive and secret to say your vows Godwick may just be for you.
Narborough Hall, set in the valley of the river Nar in Norfolk, is a comfortable, welcoming and romantic Wedding Venue with a beautiful and sensuous garden.
With a long tradition of Country House hospitality Narborough Hall and has emerged as a glamorous organic haven. It has everything you need for a perfect country wedding, a beautiful English garden, great food and service, a comfortable and elegant house, and a caring, imaginative and professional staff.
Those of you who’ve been reading this blog for a while will know just how smitten I am with this particular venue, read on and you will be too.
Notes from Narborough Hall Gardens
‘a green thought in a green shade…’
The beautiful June styled styled shoot is inspired by the 17th Century poem ‘The Garden’ by Andrew Marvell.
The poem describes a nymph taking a sensual walk through an abundant garden filled with birdsong, flowers and shady mossy walks. Set in an ancient watery landscape with gentle streams, misty lake, woods and parkland, Narborough Hall has exactly the right atmosphere and sense of place for this shoot. The garden is organic and sensual and its plants are either edible, scented or therapeutic.
It is a space with secrets, an abundance of fruit, flowers and lush greenery.

This has to be one of our favourite duos, absolutely seen at their best in this beautiful autumnal real love feature… Oh yes, The Little Lending Co. & Godwick Great Barn are a match made in wedding heaven.
So when I heard that they were teaming up to offer couples marrying at Godwick a styling consultation and service, I just had to tell you all about it because look, it’s all so ruddy gorgeous!
James, owner of this stunning wedding venue in Norfolk, is here to tell us a little more about this partnership with Penny and his words are perfectly illustrated by some images of these super cool styling stations by The Little Lending Co.
Oh and there’s a film folks…
Notes from Godwick Great Barn
We love the The Little Lending Company at Godwick and are so pleased (and honoured) to have Penny, owner of LLC, as one of our wedding planners. Not only is Penny a dab hand at organising and planning, but her attention to detail and natural skill for styling is second-to-none.
She is the décor queen and really knows how to style a venue to make an impact, which is why we are so very pleased that she has agreed to take on an additional role at Godwick and act as our in-house styling consultant. That means every Godwick couple that books the barn from now will have an initial venue styling consultation to talk wedding style for the best part of an hour with our very own style guru.
