'A general direction in which something is developing or changing'
Throughout the year as we welcome excited brides and grooms, same sex unions and blessings, we see a variety of styles and tastes when it comes to wedding decoration and styling. Each and every wedding is individual and unique, making our job a very exciting and happy one!
Over the past 12 months we have seen 2016/17 trends such as free-form bouquets and wild flower centre pieces, food stations, naked cakes, wooden detailing and an emphasis on pastel colour palettes.
We love and promote creativity here at the barns and love it when our couples inject their own sense of style and personality in to the big day. As with all aspects of creative avenues, trends will always come and go and come back round again, but it is what best represents you and your relationship which will make it YOUR wedding day.
In March we played host to a group of immensely talented suppliers working in the wedding and events industry, who came together on a beautiful sunny day in Suffolk to showcase their talents and promote their services within our grounds. Using white shades against fresh, lush foliage with hints of peach tones, Jenna and Leah orchestrated a stunning shoot with beautifully executed photography to capture the atmosphere on the day. By carefully selecting particular props, flowers, foliage and colours, the team of suppliers used trends and ideas rooted in 2016 which would transition easily in to 2017, enabling the resulting images and blog to remain 'current' and as an inspiration to brides this year and in to 2018.
Here are a collection of images to inspire, excite and get those creative juices flowing! (Even Mills make an appearance!) Enjoy!
