Blog / Pretty September wedding at The Garden Barn, Suffolk | Meg + Sam
Meg and Sam had a beautiful wedding at the fabulous Garden barn, in Suffolk. This pretty barn venue in the Suffolk countryside is a real favorite of mine. And not only because it’s 10 minutes up the road from me! It has a stunning main hall, fabulous gardens and driveway, and its surrounded by gorgeous fields. It’s always a relaxed feel there, perfect for laid back couples.
Meg got ready at the stunning lodge at the Garden Barn, with friends and family. Sam also got ready there, while Meg kept out of the way. This couple were relaxed from the get go and just the kind of people I love! Friends of theirs had provided a balloon arch at the entrance to the barn which looked amazing in the green and pink colour theme, and was a lovely surprise for the couple. Meg’s dress was a fabulous vintage 50’s style for The Tailors Cat in Cambridge, and the bridesmaids had beautiful lace details short dresses too in shades of pink and green, absolutely gorgeous. Stunning flowers were provided by local florist The Little Wedding Shed. More stunning pinks and greens to compliment the whole day.
The lovely, fun ceremony was in the barn, with not a dry eye in the house. Drinks and canapes on the lawn, a few fun group photographs and a 10 minute walk with the couple the unposed couples shots came next. Then a wonderful banquet, with everyone sat on long tables, chatting and sharing and having a wonderful time. Emotional and hilarious speeches came after the meal. The evening took off with a ceilidh band and some amazing dancing.
Meg had persuaded Sam that they should book a photographer for their wedding. Often people may feel like they don’t want the intrusion, they don’t want someone following them around all day being bossy. But if you choose the right photographer, it’s not like that at all. When I’m at weddings, I’m there for the couple, and to do what they want. I’ll offer suggesting, and gently advise, but a long set of groups or an hour away for couples shots is not what I’m all about. I’m thrilled to say that once they received the photos, Sam told Meg that he was really happy she convinced him to book me! And that makes my day!
This was a true, joyous celebration of a day. Fab people and a wonderful venue. Thanks so much for having me! If you’re interested in wedding photography at The Garden Barn, Suffolk, or any Suffolk wedding photography, please do take a look here, and get in touch!
