With August (our most popular month of the year for weddings) just around the corner, I have been busy preparing the grounds, ensuring they look glorious for our wedding couples and guests. I always want them to get the ‘wow’ factor as they enter the grounds and there are so many opportunities for this at Ufton Court; with our magnificent oak trees lining the drive way, our courtyard filled with lavender, the magical setting of the dell and our herb garden – tucked behind our manor house.
The herb garden always looks especially spectacular at this time of the year – a picture-perfect spot for your wedding photos. It is alive with colour; lilacs, deep purples, yellows, oranges and many shades of green. Not only is it visually pleasing, but the aroma from the herbs are tantalising. A cocktail of fragrances that include sage, oregano, lemon balm and peppermint – just to name a few.
Are you getting married at Ufton Court this summer? I would certainly recommend a visit to the herb garden!
As always, happy reading and happy gardening.
