I love the lightness of Heidi and Shaun’s pretty Glemham Hall wedding. Their flowers are deliciously pretty daisies with peonies and roses – and they fill my heart with summer vibes! Glemham Hall is one of Suffolk’s most beautiful venues: a 16th century family home surrounded by 300 acres of countryside and with its own 170-capacity marquee which is perfect for elegant weddings. Our beautiful bride tells us a little more about the day:
Our suppliers were mostly local. Karen Lear Florist, Tonia Edwards Cakes, My big Fat Wedding disco, Blue daffodil events catering, Ayshea Goldberg Photography, Galley Slaves ice cream bikes. Our wedding stationery was provided by Andrew at Vintage Designs. Andrew provided a very personalised service and was extremely helpful.
I had a natural looking bouquet, with peonies, roses and other garden flowers from Karen Lear Flowers. The colours were pale pinks, whites and lilacs. Flower girls had gypsophila crowns and a small bouquet of mini daisies.
Our venue was beautiful as it was, the marquee ceiling had gorgeous chandeliers hanging and a fairy light canopy on the dance floor. The marquee sides also opened up during the day to the view of the lovely gardens at Glemham Hall. We did have some Large Love letters lit up to fill a gap in the marquee and also some warm willow trees lit up near the dance floor all provided by My Big Fat Wedding Disco.

We met Ayshea at a weddig fair in Glemham Hall and instantly knew she was the photographer for us.
Ayshea’s work is amazing! From the moment we met Ayshea up until the day she hand delivered our beautiful album Ayshea provided a first class professional service. Ayshea is just lovely, so easy to talk to and so helpful. From the moment we booked Ayshea we had lots of contact and Ayshea was just wonderful on our wedding day.
We met with Ayshea at her office and sat down to view our photos on a slide show which Ayshea had prepared. Our photos were amazing and Ayshea captured our day perfectly!
