Sarah & Adam's Wedding at Columbine Hall Barn | Suffolk Wedding photographer
Sarah and Adam said their vows on a hot summer’s day in the small village of Ashbocking, Suffolk. I arrived in the morning at Sarah’s parents’ house nearby, where prep was in full flow; as Sarah did her makeup, her sisters got the little ones dressed and her brother popped open a bottle of fizzy. Just up the road, the little village church was packed with their nearest and dearest, who sat amidst the stunning floral arrangements throughout the personal ceremony. After some family photos, a confetti arch and a chance to sneak away for some couple shots, we headed to Columbine Hall Barn.
Decorated beautifully with hand-lettered calligraphy signs, gorgeous flowers and rustic details, Columbine Hall Barn housed several long tables from Anthology Vintage, ready for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Guests enjoyed garden games on the lawn and explored the expansive grounds of the venue, as staff distributed canapés by My Kitchen Your Place. Following on from the delicious meal and intimate speeches, the lights were dimmed and Harbour Light Cèilidh Band made their way to the dance floor to round the evening off with a good old-fashioned party.
The next morning, I was back at Columbine Hall for a post-wedding brunch. As the sun beamed down, Sarah, Adam and their guests tucked into avocado bagels and croissants, leftover wedding cake and freshly-brewed coffee.
The whole weekend truly was a family affair: Sarah made all the stationery and even the skirt for her outfit, while their families helped out with the cake, flowers and decorations. With a combination of beautiful weather, amazing guests, stunning decor and, of course, the fabulous couple themselves, it truly was a perfect summer celebration. Congratulations, Sarah and Adam!
