The weather may have taken a turn for the, ummm, worse (anyone else being kept awake by the ruddy rain at 3am!?) but here on these pages, there’s quite the summer feel.

Think village fête, quirky touches, traditional games and just lots of smiley people having a jolly good time and you’re halfway there with this styled shoot. Created by Emily, purveyor of gorgeousness at Suffolk Wedding Venue Kenton Hall Estate, and Wedding Planner Caroline Gould, it’s a lovely insight into how your wedding could look and feel in the hands of these clever gals.

Plus there’s an abundance of Suffolk talent so lot’s of supplier inspiration here for you folks!

Over to the lovely (and she really is!) Emily…

Notes from Kenton Hall Estate

Emily: This Summer we brought together some of Suffolk’s finest wedding suppliers to style a ‘Village Fete’ themed shoot here at Kenton Hall Estate.  We wanted to show a fun, relaxed marquee wedding – a different take on the marquee wedding with long tables, bright colours, creative lighting and exquisite details.

We also got some ceremony style shots in the woodland!

We used zinc jugs and urns for the flowers and plants, traditional village fete games, a WI inspired cake table and a traditional steam engine to bring together the village fete look.
