Romanticism Meets Minimalism at Kingsdown Rectory

Menzies Photography shares this contemporary romantic vision for a wedding at Kingsdown Rectory in the Kent countryside with wedding planner and stylist, Blonde Army and creative flowers by Iris and Co! “This editorial, entitled Romanticism Meets Minimalism – embraces the romanticism of the traditional and the modern trend of minimalism. Captured beautifully in documentary style, the moody, rich tones transport a classic and charming concept into a contemporary love story. With modern weddings trends developing towards a more personal, stripped back day but couples still wanting that traditional backdrop, we set out to demonstrate that a classic venue doesn’t necessarily dictate classic decor.

Using modern influences and considered design choices the team have certainly designed a day for the modern couple in a timeless setting. We wanted a light, clean colour palette, unstructured florals with modern elements and a real couple to model our idea.”


  • Bring your chosen colour palette to your florist and discuss with them what flowers they advise you use
  • Incorporate modern tableware such as the concrete vases used here
  • All your stationary to set the mood and tone of your wedding




For me, there’s nothing more fulfilling than creatively bringing exciting new ideas and beautiful features to B.LOVED that inspire you to find the soulful moments in your life.
