Last week I showed you that Chips and I were trying to make our overgrown garden at The Stencil Library into a venue worthy of a wedding.
The bride was Rachel Morris. Rachel is the manager at The Stencil Library, my cousin and co author of this blog. The guests met on the lawn for champagne and photos then made their way through the garden and orchard to the wedding marquee for afternoon tea.
Rachel and her bridegroom decorated the marquee with an abundance of painted silk lanterns from China which looked fab. However, news and pics of her special day are for her to share and I will just concentrate on taking you around the garden which used the same lanterns to form a link between indoor and outdoor spaces.
The guests had use of the garden all evening and so electric, solar and battery lamps were used to keep the paths iluminated and low branches visible. The evening pics were taken around 9.45.
We were so lucky to have two weeks of warm sun leading up to the day because our winter was long and spring eluded us so flowers that would have been finished by mid June were shimmering in their finery along side the guests.
