September/October 2021

 
Welcome one and all to another issue of Your Kent Wedding. Here we are, my favourite part of the year where it feels like there’s so much to look forward to (will you be cross if I say I’m excited about Christmas already?). I adore the autumn as colours change and the air starts to cool. Mind you, based on the weather as I write this, the temperatures won’t have far to fall this year! What a great time to get married though. September tends to be pretty dependable climate-wise and there’s a wonderfully romantic feel of promise just as the seasons change. I love to see what couples and their suppliers come up with in terms of wedding colour palettes at this time of year. Blush, terracotta and aqua are are all paired with a rich burgundy in our gorgeous styled shoot from page 63, which is a real treat.

I’m loving being involved with wedding plans myself as Melissa, my dear friend and editor here at CWM, prepares to tie the knot next July, with yours truly as bridesmaid – I may have mentioned that once or twice... She’s already chosen her gown, in which she looks stunning. But what we learned from this experience is not to panic if you don’t instantly burst in to tears at the knowledge that it’s the one. If that’s just not you, you’re unlikely to change your entire personality the moment you try on a wedding dress. Sometimes, the knowledge that you’ve chosen your dream attire comes from careful deliberation and a process of trying on all silhouettes to know what suits and what doesn’t. Melissa actually chose a dress that’s the complete opposite to anything she thought she’d go for and this is something we as editors hear all the time. Remember: you do you and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

I hope you enjoy this splendid issue and keeep planning!

St Julians Club

St Julians, just outside Sevenoaks, is an elegant Georgian country house set amongst charming and beautifully manicured gardens and 70 acres of woodland. A secluded and exclusive private club since the early 1950s it overlooks the Weald of Kent and offers a traditional yet unusual location for your special day.

The Lounge is the original drawing room of the house, with long bay windows that open on to the external flagstone terrace. It has a beautiful marble fireplace and Steinway grand piano, which is available for use on the day. Double doors lead to the Victorian Conservatory, which boasts an incredible canopy of wisteria giving fragrant blooms up to four times a year. The Gallery offers the same amazing views and the bay window is the perfect spot for an intimate wedding ceremony.

The venue has space for 60 ceremony and wedding breakfast guests, with up to 80 for a standing evening party. Private use of the three main function rooms is included, as well as the privacy of the flagstone and grass terraces across the front of the house. You’re also offered a complimentary food and wine tasting, where you can work with the team of experienced chefs to plan your bespoke menu. Social membership of the club is also gifted to you both for one year.

We asked Diana Critchell from Flowers of Foxhall (www.flowersoffoxhall.co.uk) about the benefits of faux versus fresh flowers. Read on for her words of wisdom. Considering the beauty and opulence flowers add to your wedding day, they're a huge element of the planning process. So, along with colour and design, it's not surprising you've found yourself asking about the benefits of fresh versus faux. There's no denying that fresh blooms are beautiful. Their myriad forms, colours and scent cannot be truly replicated by their artificial counterparts. However, there are a few points to consider before you make the final decision.
