Bride Katy is the wedding co-ordinator at Helmingham Hall Gardens in Suffolk so she knows the venue inside out, but it didn’t stop her from envisioning something a little different than their normal offerings for her wedding day. With the permission of owners Lord and Lady Tollmache who reside in Helmingham Hall, Katy went about transforming one of their old barns for the wedding reception. It began with an empty, cobwebbed, bird-nested wooden space with no warmth, but come the wedding day it was transformed into an inviting rustic haven with strung up fairy lights, hand carved wooden place mats, stag antler centrepieces and gorgeous greenery runners. I have to say I am in LOVE with every last detail and can’t wait to get my pin on.
I’m also blown away by the rest of the house and surrounding gardens. They have made the couples portraits captured by Kelsie Low Photography über dreamy, making you feel like you’re stepping into a secret garden. Almost stealing the show are the adorable Flower girls in floral Monsoon dresses and flower crowns, but there is not denying how beautiful Katy looks in her Phil Collins Bridal gown, with Groom Haka by her side complimenting the country vibe perfectly in chino’s and a tweed jacket from Moss Bros.
