A country barn wedding in Kent
Posted on July 26, 2012 at 3:06pm
Kent is beautiful, Kent in the sunshine is breathtaking!
The van was loaded with all the gorgeous wedding flowers we had been busy preparing in the shop and the scent … well lets just say, if you could bottle it you would be rolling in it. So on the first sunny Saturday of the year we trundle out of our normal wedding stoming ground of Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
I know I shouldn’t have favourites but Katy chose all of my most loved flowers. Getting her email straight from Australia, way back in winter, I was already super super (yes it deserves two) excited about the flowers she mentioned.
The wedding was held in Tom’s parent’s barn. If they don’t rent it out for weddings, they definitely should, I would book within seconds of seeing it. It really encompassed the phrase ‘garden of England’ with agapanthus blooming, gorgeous lawns, amazing flower beds, white-washed barn walls … need I say more.
Candelabra’s don’t really cut the mustard here. It’s all about aged terracotta pots, sage green bunting and rustic lanterns.
The bridal bouquet was filled with Pepita spray roses, English grown herbs, sweet peas, flowering mint, ammi majus, Majolika spray roses, myrtle and eucalyptus.
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Brooks!
