Editor loves and inspiration

Look what catches the eye of the editor with a special emphasis on local Kent wedding businesses, shops and suppliers.

I can't get enough of this stunning styled shoot captured by Eddy Fisher at Starborough Manor in Edenbridge. It allows sage to take centre stage along with other complementary shades of green. The result is soft, romantic, edgy and modern all at the same time, and I'm obsessed!

I was excited to feature new venue Betteshanger Park's very first wedding shoot this issue.

“As a venue, we're hoping to explore the great outdoors with our wedding ideas and opportunities,” says Betteshanger Country Park's Tyler Christy. “With this in mind, I wanted to set a real, natural, rustic tone for this shoot to reflect the wider grounds we're in.” The colours and natural effects of the shoot reflect the surrounding countryside as well as the venue's industrial history with rustic coppers and the black undertones of the interiors.

With banqueting tables, local and fun food coupled with a relaxed vibe all becoming increasingly popular, the goal was to reflect this in the setup. Tyler continues, “Our inclusive dining style, feasting menus, and barbecue-style buffets al help to create a laid-back day.”

When Gaynor Lawson at Bailey & Blossom set out to collaborate with other Kentish wedding suppliers on a styled shoot, her vision was of all shades of red, with white, green and black, combining sleek lines with a countryside vibe. When photographer Emily Brown, celebrant Kate Mitchell and stationer Maddy Bishop from Green Planet Living joined the project it started to evolve as they brought with them their passion for eco-conscious weddings.

Emily is a proud member of the Sustainable Wedding Alliance and offers a range of eco-conscious prints and products. Meanwhile, Kate uses recycled ribbons, paper and natural elements in her ceremonies, and a tree is planted in the name of each of her couples via The Woodland Trust. It'd be a shame not to showcase this important aspect of the suppliers' work, so things gathered momentum from there.

Loved by the editor at Your Kent Wedding magazine
Venue stylists Sam and and Katie at A Touch of Kent, new to the wedding industry, loved the concept of depicting a fresh, new beginning to married life. What better way to do so than by using 2023's trending wedding colour palette of sage green in contrast with the luxury and elegance of gold accents? With the help of C and C Imagery, the duo and their team portrayed their idea through an ethereal shoot perfectly timed for the spring, when we think most of fresh beginnings. It's just dreamy!

Rachel used to work in the spa at the Hythe Imperial Hotel, so understood well what a lovely venue it is. In fact, partner Ryan's dad got married there, so it held a special place in his heart too and always said he wanted to get married there. So, they wasted no time and set the date for 31st July, 2022.

Abi and Jonathan met online, and after five years together, while celebrating their anniversary, Jonathan popped the question. Abi remembers, “He'd booked a window table with a view at Sushi Samba. Starter and mains had been served and enjoyed, then just before the dessert menu was presented, Jonathan knelt down on one knee while no one was looking and asked me to marry him.”

Frank proposed to Georgina in the kitchen of their first home. He'd made her believe they were going to the pub for lunch, and when she came into the kitchen before they were due to set off, she found a projector displaying photographs of them on the wall and big floral letters that spelled, “Marry me.” Georgina says, “We'd been together around five years and it was special to have the proposal in the first home we'd built together.”
