Pampas And Roses At Farleton Knott Wedding Barn

The most beautiful styled shoot this week over at the new Lake District Wedding Venue Farelton Knott Barn

A new venue on the outskirts of Kendal, closely placed to J36 being the main access to The Lakes and further afield. Consisting of a wedding barn that can fit up to 120 day and night time guests, outdoor grounds and exclusive use of the 4 bedroom cottage. The cottage is decorated to an exceptional standard throughout and really like nothing I've seen on the circuit. A real private and luxury retreat for your guests and you, wether for weddings or private parties it really is a perfection paradise.

Inivited along by the lovely Amy of Amy Brown make up (the wedding coordinator of this venue). I created a bespoke look of neutrals infused with pampas and eucalyptuses. The soft tones really add dimension and texture to the barn, compliment its natural look and draw in a look of luxe that lifts the finished attire. It is a higher end look that can work in almost all venues, however when placed against the contrast of barn walls and the soft flickers of lighting - it becomes something very special indeed. This is a look that can be created all year round 24/7 and not dominated by seasons.

As usual I was working alongside my favourite stylist Emma Jane Events and together we set to work creating 3 shooting scenes. Scene 1 consisted of a U shaped table, with several top table arrangements, intermittently placed candle clusters, natural muslin runners adorned with crystal and clear glass single bud vases - within each was placed ammi, a single rose or snow drops, a triangle arch decorated in 2 120cm pampas and fresh floral installations and 2 floor pieces to sit at the bottom of each U with several lanterns.

Ever practical, the floor arrangements and table arrangements can be used initially as ceremony decoration. Have a look at some images here....

The second scene was a simple ceremony set up, consisting of the same arch recycled and the top table decor being laid on the floor as aisle decor. The floor installations were placed behind the arch to create a mini meadow and the muslin runners placed at the bottom of each aisle interior chair alongside lanterns. Have a look here...

The third and final scene styled by us was a separate smaller top table back drop, Emma Jane Events brought her large copper arch along which I decorated with simple ruscus, dried hydrangea heads and ammi. The top table flowers were then placed along the top table sparingly - with candles again clustered and the 2 free standing floor pieces became a double floor installation that sat before the bride and groom and framed them for the meal. Have a look here...

The bridal bouquet was a luxe fresh mixture of orchids and cream and quicksand roses reflexed to give a beautiful bouncy shape, check it out here...

Watch this space for myself and Emma Jane making more appearances at Farleton, given that its only 3 miles away from each of our homes - it would be rude not to! Alternatively if this is a look you'd be interested in get in touch with these images for a quote. Sam xx
