Blog / Elegant party wedding at White Dove Barns, Suffolk
This was my first wedding at the stunning White Dove Barns in Suffolk. This venue is superb for a great fun filled party vibe. With accommodation for 42 guests, people can celebrate from the day before through to the day after. There’s a real community vibe here with guests milling around, getting ready, popping by to say hello. Such a lovely informal way to hold your wedding and make the most of the celebrations.
Helen and Chris are such sweethearts. It was such a joy to be a part of their special day. They wanted a relaxed, fun and informal day and that’s exactly what they created. A fresh summer vibe, with mint green bridesmaids dresses, and softly coloured summer flowers. The tables were dressed beautifully by Norfolk florist Bramble and Berry.
Helen had a stunning lace backed dress by Astra Slater of Timeless Couture and incredible, soft duck egg blue wedding shoes by Rachel Simpson shoes. Beautiful! Such a classic, elegant look for her beautiful day.
There was some rain, as can happen in the beautiful British countryside. But as ever, it didn’t dampen the mood. It did however knock out some of the electrics for a while, but an electrician best man is a bride and grooms best friend!
After the gorgeous ceremony, drinks were taken in the courtyard strewn with bunting. Group photos were taken with Suffolk fields as the backdrop, and a speedy confetti shot was taken as the storm clouds closed in! When there was a break in the clouds we wandered off the the lake and beautiful countryside surroundings to get some relaxed couples portraits. Then the party got started!
A beautiful meal served by Prestige Bars and Catering followed by fabulous speeches. All of the bridesmaids stood up for an emotional speech, and the father of the bride had a little incident! Tipping a glass of red wine down your front just before speaking to a room full of people is not advised, but these moments create laughter and memories, so no harm done!
Photo props came out later on, the band started playing, Sourz shots were poured and the dancing began. A fabulous party for family and friends.
Thanks so much for having me there. Rebecca x
