Suffolk tentipi wedding photos of Fran & James
Suffolk tentipi wedding photos of Fran and James. A tentipi in a field next to the river Deben. Ramsholt is one of the most picturesque parts of the river here in Suffolk, the land is a very gentle slope to water and it is hard to tell where one starts and the other finishes. These flat landscapes create some of the most incredible skylines as well. But we needed good weather. There was no real option for rain. A clear day and the skies change from hazy blue to every colour of pink and red. But sitting in the conservatory of Fran’s house as the girls got ready for the wedding, grey skies loomed and a few spats of rain hit the windows.
Looking out of windows, you can get obsessed with the weather. Looking into the house, with the riot of colour from the hand-tied bouquets and warmth of love and laughter, I knew this wasn’t a wedding that would be defined by details. This was a wedding that was rich in everything good in life and at the centre of it all two of the kindest, loveliest big hearted souls. Being a part of their wedding day was a rare privilege. Watching their relationship is extraordinary – the depth and intensity is a wonderful thing and mixed with their fantastically surreal sense of the absurd makes for something quite unique.
The wedding ceremony was filled with readings and music, a full choir which provided more wonderful singing later in the day as well. The umbrellas that were brought out before the ceremony were put and a strong wind that blew the confetti around blew the clouds away leaving clear skies. James still had to squeeze into an MG with the roof up – I have no idea how he managed to drive with his knees around his ears and I’m sure he got out the other end the same shape as the car. Waiting for them both was the tentipi nestled comfortably in the asparagus field under blue skies.
Provenance wood fired kitchen provided some of the most relaxed but sumptuous wedding food, perfect for sitting on a hay bale and watching the sun sink slowly into the river.
