Last weekend, the sun was shining and mother and I hopped in her car to Scotney Castle, in Lamberhurst to visit the Vintage Wedding Fayre.
It was a beautiful summery day and I imagined all the pretty flowers and hay bales for my Wedding with the sun shining brightly.
Mother and I met some lovely people, some that won me over with their flower arrangements and some that won me over with their flavour ice creams, and some that just had me at moustache temporary tattoos!
It was an inspiring day, I went home with some amazing ideas and bookings. I felt a little relieved, I have spent so long feeling a little lost and head fogged by all the stress and ideas.
So after all the new ideas swimming around my brain and feeling content, we stopped for some tea and an apricot & fig scone.
We then had a little wander around the beautiful grounds of Scotney Castle and my was I impressed.
It was in full Autumnal bloom. There were pockets of deep romantic hues that surrounded us on our little walk around the lake.
The castle is a little stunner too. It is slightly derelict but such a beauty inside and out... I could amble around those gardens staring up at that wonderful view all afternoon. I could sit amongst the flowers getting lost in a good book. I could stand and just look out the windows of the castle just taking all the lovely picturesque gardens in.
I do love to visit a National Trust house and pretend to be a grown up now and again. Living in Kent I am quite lucky to be surrounded by such beautiful places.
