Blog / Suffolk wedding photography at The Swan Lavenham with tipi reception

I loved doing the wedding photography at this stunning day in Lavenham and the Suffolk countryside.  Ruth and John had a beautiful, relaxed and elegant wedding.  The reception was at the stunning Swan in Lavenham.  Ruth got ready there with friends and family.  She was a picture of elegance and style, and was a very relaxed bride to be.

The beautiful ceremony was emotional and heartfelt.  The weather was kind to us, so drinks and canapes on the terrace were next in line, with some relaxed group photographs too while we were out there.

I took Ruth and John off for a wander to capture some relaxed, informal couples portraits.  Lavenham is such a beautiful little village, we didn’t have to go far to find interesting backdrops and spaces to capture beautiful images for them.

A vintage car picked the happy couple up, and we all headed off to The White Horse in Edwardstone.  A fabulous pub with camping field which was transformed into a gorgeous, rustic reception venue with a stunning party tipi.  The white Horse is in rural South Suffolk close to the wool villages of Boxford and Lavenham.  It was a glorious contrast to the beauty of Lavenham, heading into the countryside and moving between the main marquee with the food, sweet bar and pinata’s, into the beautifully decorated open sided tipi.

Friends and family gathered, and despite the rain, alot of fun and laughter ensued!  Thanks so much for having me with you on your wonderful day.  R x
