KEW GARDENS - A FABULOUSLY FLORAL AFFAIR

Kew Gardens are just the prettiest. These world-renowned Royal Botanic Gardens and buildings are unlike anything you’ve ever seen, plus it’s all within easy reach (thirty minutes!) of Central London. Winner!

I’m insanely proud to be a recommended supplier for this glorious venue and always enjoy my days here.

There are four gorgeous, well-pruned places to get married at this iconic venue and they look a bit like this:

Cambridge Cottage

The intimate option. It’s all kinds of boutique loveliness, you can hold your civil ceremony in the Drawing Room (up to 80 guests) then move to the adjoining Gallery – home to some of Kew’s finest botanical artwork – for dinner. The Drawing Room and Gallery open onto the picturesque and secluded Duke's Garden which is a photographer’s dream. You can exchange your vows in the French doors of the Drawing Room, with your guests looking on from the Duke's Garden. D-REAMY.

Nash Conservatory

I LOVE a greenhouse wedding, the light is always insane. With floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides, the Nash Conservatory provides sooo much natural daylight for your wedding ceremony and is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to an impressive 200 guests. The Nash Conservatory and lawn also works a treat for pre-dinner drinks before moving to the Orangery for dinner and dancing.

The Orangery

The large, open plan design of the Orangery makes it a super quirky choice. With high ceilings and fancy arched windows, the room is filled with natural light (I know, I’m obsessed). If you’re hankering after a summer wedding, their large terrace offers spectacular views of the Gardens themselves.

Temperate House

The big one. Kew's newly opened Temperate House is a glistening cathedral housing 10,000 plants, making it a pretty arresting sight. It can squeeze in a whopping 270 guests for a seated dinner amidst a tropical rain forest of vibrant botanical brilliance, and up to 300 for a standing reception. It’s the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world. With pitched roofs and pillars supporting wrought-iron ribs, the House has a mix of decorative motifs, finials, pediments, acanthus leaf capitals, stone urns and statues. So if that’s your thing, you’re in luck.

KEW GARDENS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Kew is one of those iconic British institutions that every photographer wants to shoot at during their career. The colour provided by the Gardens and the oasis of rare plants and botanicals makes for a fantastic backdrop to wedding photos, so the question of “Where shall we take some couples’ photos?” has an easy answer at Kew: anywhere! Every square meter is visually stunning.

The quality of natural light is also exceptional, especially in Temperate House with its glass roof and walls. This saves me a lot of technical issues and means I can really let my creative flag fly. I’m looking forward to getting some incredible crowd shots too: one or two of those long tables amidst all the lush greenery would be lovely. I think the environment at Kew is so unique, it makes for a wonderful wedding atmosphere which makes for happy guests, which in turn makes for cracking photos.

“OMG! What can we say? We are so, so happy you photographed our wedding. We would choose you a million times over!"
