Words by Kim Webb
Sat in front of a huge lace tipi, low rustic tables were teamed with handmade and unique props from The Little Wedding Warehouse. Vintage rugs were accessorised with a mix of rattan and textured cushions. Handmade macramé placemats, lanterns and vintage candlesticks lined the tables.
Pink crockery, gold cutlery and blush glassware, from A Touch of Vintage, provided a stylish touch.
The look was completed with handmade artisan lollipops with edible flowers from Sugar Pop, delicate calligraphed stationery by Calligraphy Payal and beautiful favour bags from Make It Friday.
Nestled in the long grass sat a huge reclaimed wood moon crescent alongside an incredible balloon installation mixed with palm leaves, pampas and beautiful blooms by The Glitzy Balloon Company.
Cobi & Coco created the most spectacular cake, cupcakes & macaron favours adorned with delicate petals and pearls and exquisite handcrafted sugar flowers including Ranunculus, Roses and Dahlias.
Few things say ‘boho styling’ like pampas grass, so it’s no surprise that this featured heavily in all the floral arrangements by Bohotanical. Using a selection of neutral-tones, faux flowers were added for a contrast in texture, alongside dried eucalyptus, bleached ruscus and twigs to tie in the woodland backdrop.
TWO STUNNING LOOKS AND ENTICING GRAZING…
The bride wore two stunning looks, created using ethically sourced materials, all handmade by With Love and Lace Bridal. The first of which, ‘The Katie’ was a crochet lace wrap over style dress with an open v back, layered frill neck and a blush satin lining.
She later changed her look to the ‘Jenilee’ wrap over peg leg harems and teamed with the ‘Roxanne’ top, featuring flared sleeves and lace up open back.
The Graze Girls provided enticing grazing boards made from fresh local produce. Delicious cheeses accompanied by artisan crackers, assorted charcuterie and handfuls of olives. They were beautifully paired with the best of Kentish dried apricots and in season fresh Kentish strawberries and cherries.
