Georgie & Matt's Vintage-Infused Spring Wedding at Kentwell Hall, Suffolk

At the end of April I had a lot of fun photographing Georgie and Matt's gorgeous wedding at the amazing Kentwell Hall in Long Melford, Suffolk.

It was a lovely relaxed morning and so nice to capture the fabulous Verity of the Vanity Box at work. Verity is a fantastic hair and makeup artist specialising in vintage looks, and I'm very lucky to have her as my own hairdresser too! 

The flowers were supplied by Adele Hudgell and I absolutely loved the bold red, white and blue blooms. They fitted the theme perfectly and really made everything pop with colour!

We then headed over to Kentwell Hall where both the ceremony and reception were being held. I knew it was going to be an incredible venue to photograph from my first contact with them - when I called to arrange a visit before the big day I was warned there would be Tudors in the hall! I wasn't disappointed - their recreations are brilliant and well worth a visit!

Georgie had a gorgeous short tea length vintage-style wedding dress - Rhian by House of Mooshki, from Rock the Frock, a fantastic bridal boutique with a great range of alternative dresses.

The ceremony was lovely and so beautiful in the hall, surrounded by historic features and steeped in history.

All the speeches were fantastic, but I particularly enjoyed the Best Man's powerpoint presentation on the history of the Groom's haircuts - an excellent idea and certainly entertaining!

It's a lovely room and felt so warm, lit beautifully with fairy lights and decorated with Adele's gorgeous flowers.

One Night Standeoke are a bandaoke band - like karaoke, but singing along to a real live band rather than a backing track, so you're pretty much a rockstar for the night (well, for a song, at least!). All the guests were amazing and got really into their performances and dancing along. I had so much fun photographing the night and really enjoyed the performances too! I'd definitely recommend them for a party to remember.
