Men are from Mars 3rd July 2015

The saying Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus is something all married to be couples need to be aware of when planning their wedding. For a man what is the most important aspect of their Wedding Day will be totally different to what it is for a Women. Everyone knows that The Perfect Wedding Dress is the big thing for the bride, but what about the Groom. is it the Groomsman’s suit?

I only mention this as some of you that have been reading my blog know that this week I have been doing a photograph diary of the Delphinium Flowers which we use to make our Confetti Petals. Today I decided to ask my husband Tom to come with me and as he is a really talented artist with a fantastic artist eye, I thought his shots could well be much better than mine! I did however forget one thing Men are from Mars! All my photographs have been concentrating on the flowers all Tom’s have managed to have a building in the background, well he is also a builder. I shall let you know the use we have here on the Confetti Petals Farm for each.

The Od Barn

The Old Barn

The barn you can see here is one of the oldest on the site and has the most amazing beams and stone work. This is the barn that we plan to turn into a wedding venue it will hold around 100 guests. I am really looking forward to working on this barn as it really is stunning, and will be perfect for the Vintage Style Wedding.
