Woodland wedding ideas

Let me share a little secret about me: I love fairy tales. Not the children’s stories like Cinderella, or the Disney variety (ick), but real folklore, celtic mythology and fantasy:- grown up fairy tales. So when I hear the words “fairy tale wedding”, ideas and themes like today’s woodland wedding ideas blog instantly spring to mind. And they’re exciting!

Wedding planner Caroline Gould (no, we’re not related!) emailed me a few images from a creative wedding ideas shoot a few weeks ago. I was smitten – because this is a shoot with plenty of ideas including cute little details you can use on your own big day (all too rare in UK wedding shoots), a groom (still quite rare! – and he’s soooo gorgeous) and plenty of individuality and character. It was instantly a given that I’d want to share this shoot with you on English Wedding Blog.

With thanks to Caroline Gould Weddings for submitting the shoot and sharing her write up and ideas with us today! The images are by wedding photographers Nick Ilott Photography and Ross Dean Photography.

There’s a complete supplier list below for you to use as reference as well. Enjoy! Claire xxx

Because of the beautiful grounds at Kenton Hall we decided on a woodland themed wedding inspiration shoot.

We drafted in some of the most talented suppliers from the region, giving everyone the chance to showcase their products and services to a wider audience. The majority of the suppliers were fellow members of the Suffolk Wedding Network that I run with Ross Dean (www.rossdeanphotography.com).

The shoot included two beautiful dresses, fantastic floral pieces, a great unique venue, and a delicious cake (unfortunately we had to eat it after the shoot – extra calories really are one of the downsides of my job!).

You can’t always rely on the weather in the UK so despite the fact that the shoot took place in the summer, we brought the outside into the marquee bringing in wood chip to make an area for a celebration ceremony, foliage, wooden benches and even brought in some trees!

Whilst you can’t legally get married in the marquee, there are lots of beautiful areas at Kenton Hall where you could have a wedding celebration ceremony. Kenton Hall Estate don’t just do wedding receptions, they also have a glamping area with a Yurt and Shepherd Hut available for hire.”

    I like the outdoors theme and how they did it in a way that it all didn’t need to be outside. Looks so nice and relaxed to.

    Loved working with everyone! Hope you like the make-up 🙂

  • It’s just so very lovely. That cake looked amazing…was that a creme filling between the layers?? I love the trend toward wedding shoots that feature vendors in the wedding business. I really think it helps the couples and the vendors!
