This gloriously dramatic wedding style inspiration was submitted by our friend and #englishweddingmember Ayshea Goldberg Photography. I love the moody stationery, the glimpses of gold amongst navy and the deliciously dreamy cake colours. The interiors of Glemham Hall are timeless and traditional, brought to life with opulent florals and daring styling touches. The images are stunning – I will leave Ayshea to tell you more.

With love,

The vision was from Donna, one half of the team at Glemham Hall. She wanted a theme of midnight – dark blue and bold decadence, with a little bit of dark whimsy. The venue is known for its beautiful gardens, so we wanted to showcase how to style the inside for beautiful and dramatic portraits and photo settings. The hall interior is very richly decorated but often overlooked – especially in glorious weather when guests tend to go outside – so by using the rooms and interior spaces we were able to really show how this venue can be used to inspire couples looking for an elegant theme, as well as the versatlity it offers for winter weddings too. The hall has an iconic staircase and is definitely a centrepiece for portraits, so the florist wanted to create a dark fairytale effect with woodland branches, dark roses and lots of candlelight. The dress boutique matched the mood board with some elegant dresses in a variety of styles and fabrics that all suited the theme. The hair stylist and makeup artist also got to be more creative with their looks and show that bold eyes and shaved hairstyles can be a beautiful option for bridal looks.


This week is flying by! Can you believe there are only… 13 days left before Christmas?! Eeeek!! (We have a lovely schedule of features to share over Christmas by the way – I’m super excited to hit ‘publish’ again almost EVERY day through the Christmas break!) But first – a wonderfully elegant, graceful and enchanting wedding from Glemham Hall, with stunning bride Aimee and her handsome husband James! The happy pair were married in October, and describe their day as “Rustic, romantic, Autumnal, Scottish, elegant, with a grand staircase. Perfect.” That’s pretty much the loveliest wedding-in-a-nutshell description I’ve ever read! Images are by our wonderful friend Ayshea Goldberg Photography, and I hope you enjoy today’s real wedding as much as I do. Have a fabulous day!

“Our wedding had a rustic with blush, burgundy and ivory colour theme. The overall look was autumnal, but with a Scottish flair.

I am totally in denial of any gales blowing a hoolie outside my window right now!! Come and join me because it’s SPRING here on English Wedding and we’re filling our eyes with sunshine and flowers… and the stunning wedding of Milly and Nick. They married at Little Glemham Church in Suffolk, and celebrated with a beautiful reception at  Glemham Hall in May. Their day was traditional and relaxed, with wild white English flowers and luscious greenery in keeping with the Suffolk hedgerows and pebble greys as they were so close to the sea!

I very nearly went for a wedding dress that was entirely different, the first dress had pockets so instantly I loved it but when I went to try it on a second time with a view to putting down the deposit it was 30 degrees outside and I was so uncomfortable, all I wanted to do was get out of it!

Hey lovelies! Has your snow melted? That has to be the last of it… and so we’re bringing you sunflowers on the English Wedding Blog today! This is a really pretty wedding with summer skies and a bright, warm sunflower theme. Yvette and Alan are gorgeous and their venue is just wow. Come and see their day at Glemham Hall, courtesy of our lovely friend and sponsor, Essex wedding photographer Ayshea Goldberg Photography.

“Yvette and Alan had a beautiful summer inspired wedding at the pretty village church in Little Glemham and then a short stroll over to the grounds of one of my favourite wedding venues in Suffolk – gorgeous Glemham Hall. Yvette looked radiant through her nerves – but as soon as she reached Alan in the church and a huge butterfly fluttered over their heads (surely a sign that her Nana was there) she completely relaxed and enjoyed every moment of her day.

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.


I LOVE today’s real wedding! It’s soooo pretty… all the delicate pinks and the fabulous venue work together beautifully. And Alex & Gareth are just gorgeous! It’s just perfect, in every detail. If you’re looking for the prettiest feminine wedding style inspiration, you’ll love this!

For flowers we used Myrtle and Mint. They were absolutely amazing! Charlotte was there to answer I had any questions I had, or me changing my mind on things, right up until the wedding. When the flowers arrived, they were more beautiful than what I had expected. I was blown away. I would recommend them highly.

Our venue was absolutely beautiful in its own right, so it didn’t need much decoration. However, we wanted to make sure we put our own stamp on our day and get our personalities across. We made a giant ‘guest book’ with every guest’s photo printed, that they could sign and write a message to us on. We wanted to do something a little different to the traditional guest book and we loved the idea of our guests coming across old or funny photos of themselves and it being a talking point.


I have to confess I’ve neglected my little Vespa over recent months: but seeing today’s wedding makes me desperate to go and play out again! Lovely Suffolk photographer Ayshea Goldberg knows me too well: send me a gorgeous wedding with a Vespa and I simply can’t say no. I love this so very much!

The venue and its floral decorations are super pretty: I know those of you with a love of traditional weddings will adore this. Rosanne is absolutely stunning; Isaac is ever so handsome and that grin for his bride and his Vespa have kept me smiling since the moment I first saw this amazing wedding!

Glemham has a beautiful staircase in the Grand Hall, which our amazing florist decorated with flowers –  but we let the rest of the venue speak for itself. The Rose Garden in particular was stunning when we got married in September. The reception meal was held in the marquee outside, but we kept things fairly simple with tall, elegant centre pieces.
