Wedding at The Gardens

 Not a cloud in the sky and a perfect day for a wedding at The Gardens, Yalding in Kent. This is one of my favourite wedding venues in Kent, beautiful landscaped gardens, lots of space for guests to mill around and freedom for kids to run, but the real treat are the beautiful tipi's. Warm and inviting in the winter and cool and welcoming in the summer.

I had a couple of meetings with Sarah and her Mum about Sarah and Sam's wedding in August. What lovely people just bubbling with enthusiasm and excitement.

Sarah chose dusky pinks for her bridesmaid colours so naturally we followed through using dusky pink faith roses, pale pink astilbes, astrantia, scented stocks, lisianthus and roses all flowers that are soft and blousy and in season at this time of year. The bouquets were made in a soft natural just gathered style and tied with pretty ribbon. For the youngest flower girls we made delicate pomanders of spray roses, gypsophila and added a pearl handle, we also made them light and dainty hair crowns of gypsophila and foliage. Didn't they look sweet together?

The Cake was decorated using a few choice fresh flowers just easily placed onto each tier, so pretty and natural. 

The outside wooden gazebo was decorated with a garland of flowers finished off with 2 milk chruns overflowing with seasonal summer flowersand foliage. These were transportable so they could be used after the ceremony at the tipi's. 

It was a real joy to work with flower lovers and the end result was just what we planned plus a very happy bride and groom.
