I love this idea! Glamping with your hens, sleeping in yurts, open fires… you don’t have to be an outdoor, adventure seeking hen to enjoy a weekend glamping. Imagine early morning yoga in the woodland, getting back-to-nature as well as indulgent activities, delicious afternoon tea and marshmallows around the campfire! It’s all there at Kenton Hall in the heart of the Suffolk countryside.

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.
