Kent-based make-up artist, Keri Clark of Off Duty Weddings, has hand-selected a team of top class creatives, who not only produce amazing work, but are also some of her most trusted colleagues and friends to create and style a luxurious winter wedding on Saturday 19th December 2020 at Oak Tree Barn. The venue is a beautiful rustic old stable barn with modern industrial elements and set in the heart of Kent.
This wedding could be yours...
A personalised blessing ceremony will be conducted by celebrant Rebecca in a chic ceremony setting styled by Olivia from The Collect Co in front of up to 13 of the chosen couple's guests. The couple and their guests will be serenaded by Jordan Hemingway with his husky vocals and acoustic guitar.
To follow will be a wedding grazing picnic catered by Grazing Social in a cosy dining area styled again by The Collect Co. Dressed with luxurious tableware and glassware from A Touch of Vintage, naturally dyed textiles by Mia Sylviaa, sustainable handmade stationery by Luna and Sol and featuring floral design by Xyris Botanicals. Guests will be treated to a cake from award winning contemporary cake designer- Chelsea Buns Cake Design.
The lucky bride will receive a free hair and make-up trial by Keri of Off Duty Wedding Hair and Makeup and will be styled on the day at the venue. She'll also be able to select on loan a hand-crafted piece of her choosing from Tilly Thomas Lux. A bouquet of home grown dried seasonal flowers and foliage and matching boutonniere will be provided by Xyris Botanicals who creates floral eco friendly masterpieces.
The elopement will all be captured by romance obsessed Sammy Taylor. A favourite with couples and featured on Festival Brides, she creates jaw-dropping photos and has a sharp eye for detail. Sammy is also super sweet and personable with the ability to make anyone feel comfortable. She will be working alongside videographer Dale Rook who will be capturing every detail on cinematic film. Dale is highly passionate about his work and that passion feeds through into his highly emotive films which are sure to be cherished by the winning couple forever. Like Sammy, Dale's laid back energy will make anyone feel at ease.
To top off an amazing giveaway, the couple will be treated at a later date to a half day vineyard tour, wine tasting and lunch experience courtesy of Visit England's award winners Vine and Country Tours.
So what do do winning couple need to do?
With such a tight turn-around the team asks that the winning couple take care of the legal marriage, and that they and their guests come dressed to impress for an elopement of their dreams. The team will be fully responsible for all styling decisions - your wedding is in their capable hands.
