Suffolk Wedding Celebrant // 5 Mins With Bridget Garrett

Suffolk Wedding Celebrant // 5 Mins With Bridget Garrett

In the past,  I have been in the fortunate position to have worked with some of the most amazing wedding suppliers in Suffolk and across the UK, with many of which becoming great friends.  I know that many of my prospective and current clients check out my blog from time to time to see what I’ve been up to, which got me thinking.  What better way to introduce some of my trusted vendor friends to my clients than to give them the spotlight for 5 minutes here on my blog where they could tell us about their business, their inspirations and what makes them tick.  So here you have it, a new series of interviews has been born, I hope you enjoy them.

Today I had the chance to sit down with Bridget Garrett, a fantastic wedding celebrant, who is based in Suffolk, UK.  I had the pleasure of working alongside Bridget last year at a gorgeous woodland wedding and had so much fun that I had to share Bridget's work with you all.

I had such a blast being principal photographer at Kenton Hall Estate for a wedding styled shoot, commissioned Emily at Kenton Hall Estate in Suffolk.

The theme of the shoot was 'A very english affair" and the guys were looking for a modern, elegant inspiration shoot that showcased how a countryside venue could be used for a style other than the vintage look.

I had a blast taking the role of official photographer at The Truly Marvellous Wedding Fair a few weeks back.  Part of this wedding extravaganza was a stunning fashion show which showcased an awesome selection of pieces from Gentleman by ConductMoss Bros & The Bridal Lounge .

I was recently asked if I would speak at The Truly Marvellous Wedding Fair at Kenton Hall in Suffolk.  This would be the second time I had been asked and so I was really excited to be part of this awesome event once again.

There are lots of options if you are looking to attend a Suffolk wedding fair.  But it is so important that you do not waste your precious time attending all the available shows, only to find that your kind of suppliers are not in attendance.  In my opinion, this is usually because many of the wedding fairs just look to get whoever they can in through the door, instead of specifically marketing to a key demographic which always bodes better for both the attendants and the wedding suppliers involved. So it was really refreshing that last year, a new wedding fair approach rose from the crowds.  Emily and Caroline at The Truly Marvellous Wedding & Bottom Drawer Fair really have taken things to the next level of instead of creating just another wedding, have created a new creative, sensory experience that has a key demographic always close in mind.

I recently had the opportunity to visit Brides - The Show, London a new designer wedding show at Battersea Park in London from the guys that brought you Brides, the hugely successful UK wedding magazine.  Even as a fellow wedding vendor, it is always a fantastic opportunity to attend the main shows to network with other industry professionals as well as to keep up to speed with current trends and fashions. It was a really great day and particularly the bridal fashion shows were really inspirational.  I managed to take a few photos with my iPhone for you guys to check out.
