As blossom abounds and the wedding season flourishes, we’re sharing images from our favourite local venue, Kew Gardens. The Royal Botanic Gardens’ iconic Nash Conservatory, set up for an enchanted real wedding ceremony by Zita, is dressed almost entirely in white flowers and poised for the groom, bride and guests’ arrival.
Designed by John Nash, modified by architect Sir Jeffry Wyatville, the conservatory is the oldest of Kew’s 19th Century glasshouses and is of major historical and architectural importance. Originally built in the grounds of Buckingham Palace it was moved brick-by-brick to the gardens in 1836. Its twelve Ionic columns reputedly came from Carlton House, the Prince Regent’s London Residence.
