We're injecting some colour and tropical vibes to your Saturday with this immense inspiration shoot at the Secret Garden Kent. Bursting with perfectly formed pompom dahlias, floral shirts, winged eyeliner and an impressive cake. Proving that small and intimate doesn't have to be dull and boring, it can be anything you want it to be with a few well-chosen elements.


The inspiration behind this shoot is simply COLOUR!

Inspiration & Styling

Xyris Botanicals had the biggest part to play in this shoot having designed the most STUNNING floral designs, covering the table and the furniture and it was just jaw-dropping! Bright and tropical with couture and modern twist using mostly dahlias, cosmos and statice flowers. Check out her fun banana-shaped bouquet too! She grows all on her own farm and is just a mega-talent! The Secret Garden in Kent provided us with the perfect setting inside their conservatory that is covered in vines, greens and an epic royal green sofa.

Secret Garden Kent

The glasshouse at the Secret Garden Kent is perfect for hosting intimate weddings. Meaning you and your favourites can still enjoy a fun-filled day at a COVID secure wedding venue. Plus, even if it's raining outside (as let's face it you can never guarantee the Great British weather) you'd never know being tucked up inside, especially if you decide to fill it with colourful flowers, and decor like today's inspiration. A true tropical paradise.

Decor & Details

Between the stunning cake, the vibrant table decor, the gorgeous fashion styling and the lush stationery, all of the pops of colour just put a huge smile on all our faces and it just worked together perfectly. It was such a treat to capture! Huge thanks to everyone on the team and we really hope we have inspired couples to add colour to their dream day.
