Suffolk wedding venue's resident expert reveals what's hot this season

Suffolk wedding venue's resident expert reveals what's hot this season

Suffolk's award-winning Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa in Newmarket, is one of the region's leading luxury wedding venues. We spoke to their conference and events manager Jonny Gleeson for his take on what we'll be seeing this wedding season. 

He says:
* Extravagant flower arrangements, minimal succulents and leafy foliage - couples are now investing a lot more in wedding flowers and plants, creating enchanting secret gardens and focusing on a cool modern feel.

* Love for miniature trees as decorative centrepieces looks set to continue and, based on the increasingly popular urban-jungle interiors trend, we predict this will continue to grow. Think quirky succulent arrangements and rustic terrariums.

* Getting creative with the wedding stationery has always been popular, but recently this is being taken further with beautiful hand-crafted mini menus, table plans and keepsakes including gold foiling, wax seals, laser-cut designs, calligraphy and personalised monograms.

* We've also noticed couples have become less traditional in their wedding planning generally, particularly with their food choices with everything from Mediterranean feasts, including grilled monkfish and halloumi skewers, fresh salads and traditional baklava, to entire weddings themed around the British afternoon tea.
