When is Spring?
In the Northern Hemisphere Spring officially starts on March 20th (the Vernal Equinox) and ends on June 21st (the Summer Solstice).

Your Spring wedding venue
For a picture perfect Spring wedding, choose a venue with abundant gardens. A mix of evergreen trees and emerging springtime blooms is the ideal combination. Elegant manors and quiet countryside hotels are a great choice for this time of year and luckily Suffolk has plenty of both! Here are a few of our favourites:

The Hintlesham Hall Hotel
Set in stunning gardens and surrounded by 175 acres of rolling Suffolk countryside, The Hintlesham Hall Hotel is just four miles from Ipswich and boasts sweeping lawns, picturesque rose gardens, an orchard and a fragrant herb garden.


Thereís a choice of three stunning rooms that are licensed for civil ceremonies and a selection of opulent dining rooms that can host up to 120 guests.


The all-inclusive wedding packages includes room hire, arrival drinks, a three-course wedding breakfast with wine and champagne toast, use of the gardens for photography and a toastmaster!

Kenton Hall Estate
Driving down the tree-lined avenue, past grazing English Longhorn cattle gives you a real sense of Kenton Halls charming, unique and relaxed setting. Set in the heart of the Suffolk countryside only one wedding party is booked each weekend, giving you exclusive use of the grounds.


The Kenton Hall Estate is available to hire from April to September. The traditionally styled marquee features a rare scalloped roof and clear window walls providing panoramic views. The bespoke design allows the garden setting to be fully appreciated.

Your Spring wedding dress
A Spring wedding calls for stylish elegance and grace. Gowns in lace and silk, jackets in soft satin and luxurious wraps are perfect for a warm, but potentially breezy day. Itís also a perfect season for a hint of colour, with warm creams, baby blues and even soft greens perfectly matching the Spring colour palette.

We love the beautiful, feminine designs of the Charlotte Balbier collection at Bridal shop Lavender and Jude.

Lavender and Jude - Spring Wedding Dress

With chic, simple designs and effortlessly elegant fabric it ticks all the boxes for a stunning Spring wedding.

Of course youíll want to be prepared for a potential Spring shower. Consider buying a few pretty, vintage style umbrellas for the ladies and large plain black brollies for the men. Don't worry if it rains; there's something romantic about a bride and groom under a big black umbrella, shining and smiling in love.
