It was a real honour to be asked by my good friend Emily McVeigh over at Kenton Hall Estate to pop over to her recent wedding fair at her gorgeous Suffolk wedding venue and run a workshop for brides on wedding photography. 'The Truly Marvellous Wedding Fair' is a unique, forward-thinking take on the conventional wedding fair, incorporating informative workshops and a host of other interactive events that run throughout the day to educate and entertain the modern bride.
I had a great time presenting a short talk on what to consider when looking for a wedding photographer, from researching the market to find a 'good fit' for your own style and personality, right through to what to expect at the wedding consultation and a whole lot more. It was great to also take time to speak to some really cool brides after the talk and answer a few questions too.
A big thank you also to my buddy Paul at Dreamwave Events, for capturing some shots of me presenting the workshop.
We really are spoilt in this part of the world for gorgeous wedding venues and 'The Barn' in Clopton, Suffolk is no exception.
Set in idyllic Suffolk countryside The Barn is a stunning light filled space, perfect for private parties, weddings, celebrations, art shows and corporate events. The space is extremely flexible and can accommodate both smaller gatherings and bigger groups, with ample room for up to 100 guests.
Tranquil and secluded, it is in fact only 7 miles from central Ipswich, and has excellent road access from both the A12 and A14. There are good rail links to London Liverpool Street, Cambridge and Norwich, and the market town of Woodbridge is a short drive away, with its own station providing rail access to Ipswich and the coast. - Jane Stevensen, The Barn
The fair will showcase some of the best suppliers in the region, set in the idyllic grounds of this awesome wedding venue.
Come along and say 'Hi' at The Wedding Fair & Open Day, hosted by The Barn, Suffolk on Sunday 27th May 2012 – 11am-4pm – free entry!
