Introducing Mr & Mrs Turner

Back in April this year, we had the pleasure of working with Kirsty & Chris to make the flowers for their wedding day. Set at The Barn- Tunbridge Wells,the intimate, rustic venue was the perfect back drop to this couples happy day. 

We met with the couple initially in January, just a few short months from the wedding on this Kirsty says:

"We booked our wedding in December and it was for April which meant we were quite strapped for time. I think this really was an advantage because it meant I couldn’t over think things or change my mind, I just went with my gut instinct when it came to making decisions about things."

One of the themes that stood out from Kirsty and Chris' wedding was that they particularly liked lots of foliage's and eucalyptus. We supplied them with lots of different types which they used (with the helping hands of Phillipe at The Barn) to line the tables. We also incorporated these foliage's into the bouquets and buttonholes.

"When we were looking at florists, the reason that we decided to go ahead with colonnade was because Sharon has worked closely with the barn lots before and clearly knew what would work best for us and so that rally reassured me, so I would recommend finding someone who is an expert so that you can feel completely confident and relaxed! "- Kirsty

We love working with Philippe and all the staff down at The Barn. They always put 110% into making sure each arrangement, candle, glass or sprig of foliage is in exactly the right place for your special day, and the outcome is always stunning.

Kirsty and Chris met 7 years ago at the Hospital where he worked as a Doctor and she a Nurse. We hope that they have long and happy marriage, and we are so honored to have been a part of their special day.

"We used colonnade for our wedding flowers and I am so pleased we did.
Sharon is a lovely warm lady, who completely understood my vision during our consultation.
My flowers were just stunning.
She was very experienced with our venue and got the details just perfect.
Our mothers were also delighted with their thank you bouquets.
Our wedding was on a Sunday and my flowers stayed looking fresh, they are still doing well now!
Thank you so much!"-
Kirsty & Chris Turner.
