A fabulous spring morning, marred only by the fact that I’d locked myself out of the house without my phone, camera, hairbrush or lippy … but, the show must go on. Welcome to my DIY wedding flowers workshop.
Without workshop space of my own I have the fantastic opportunity to indulge myself by having the pick of some amazing venues. The lovely coffee shop at the end of Jacob’s Yard in Faversham is a new workshop find for me, following its refurbishment by current owner Sue Kimber. The space wasn’t new to me though. Back in 1995, it was an Italian restaurant and the location of my very first Valentine’s Day meal with the man I then married.
The coffee shop has lots of space (which is quite unusual for Faversham’s cafes) and is light and airy. We were doubly blessed because the spring weather was really kind to us, so we were able to take photographs inside and out.
As you can see by the amazing pictures accompanying this blog post I had the very talented Samantha Jones at my side.

I’d love to hear about your wedding plans – perhaps you’ll join me at a workshop soon and share your stories with me?
Until next time, happy flowers! Julie
