Kate and David’s Suffolk wedding at Smeetham Hall Barn with Jeff Turnbull Photography

Ah… a beautifully styled contemporary wedding with just a little hint of vintage. Kate and David’s big day is gorgeous and inspiring. I know you’ll love it! Kate wore a Stephanie Allin gown with Rainbow Couture shoes, and the couple kept venue decorations simple (to beautiful effect!) Their Suffolk wedding at Smeetham Hall Barn looks fantastic and it’s thanks to wedding photographer Jeff Turnbull (www.jeffturnbull.co.uk) they have such wonderful images to remember their day by.

The little love birds are adorable – I love little touches like this! – and the bunting with calligraphic initials is gorgeous… so enjoy this wedding on the blog and read slowly: there are so many lovely details to inspire you, and also Kate and David’s wedding report at the end of the feature is full of great advice.
