The Orangery at Kew Gardens has recently reopened after a seven month period of refurbishment and it was an honour to have provided trees for one of the first weddings it hosted.
Princess Augusta commissioned esteemed architect Sir William Chambers to build The Orangery in 1761. The space is defined by floor to ceiling feature windows spanning the length of the building and its stark white presence works beautifully to blur the lines between positive and negative space. The overall effect of The Orangery is bright, airy and classic. The space is a bank canvas with all the impact and it makes it the most perfect venue for a wedding.
As preferred suppliers at Kew Gardens, we work closely with the team there and always consider it such a huge privilege that our trees have their seal of approval. Our artificial trees are the very best quality and are handcrafted to exacting standards. Twilight Trees have many times sat alongside the real deal but to fit so seamlessly into a globally renowned botanical destination such as Kew, really does evoke that ‘pinch me’ response amongst our team.
Congratulations to all the team at Kew Gardens on the reopening of The Orangery, we are so looking forward to all of the weddings and events to come.
Here are a few ideas of the trees we suggest using at The Orangery, Kew and any similar space:
This extraordinary room is longer than it is narrow and this makes the Circular Bar the perfect choice as it marries both form and function.
