Lockdown Love Competition

Keri Clark, wedding hair stylist and make up artist (founder of Off Duty Wedding Hair & Makeup) has hand-selected a team of Kent-based creatives to offer an amazing Covid-friendly competition prize.

The Prize

On Saturday 19th December the team will be creating and styling a luxurious winter wedding setting at Oak Tree Barn, a beautiful rustic barn with modern industrial elements in the heart of Kent.

A personalised blessing ceremony will be conducted by Bex the Celebrant in a chic ceremony setting styled by Olivia from The Collect Co in front of up to 13 of the chosen couple’s guests. The couple and their guests will be serenaded by Jordan Hemingway with his husky vocals and acoustic guitar.

To follow will be a wedding grazing picnic provided by Grazing Social in a cosy dining area (styled again by The Collect Co). Dressed with luxurious tableware and glassware from A Touch of Vintage, naturally dyed textiles by Mia Sylviaa, sustainable handmade stationery by Luna and Sol and featuring floral design by Xyris Botanicals.

Guests will be treated to a cake from award-winning contemporary cake designer Chelsea Buns Cake Design.

The lucky bride will receive a free hair and makeup trial by Off Duty Wedding Hair and Makeup and will be styled on the day at the venue. She will be able to select (on loan) a hand-crafted piece of her choosing from Tilly Thomas Lux.

A bouquet of home-grown dried seasonal flowers and foliage, and matching boutonniere, will be provided by Xyris Botanicals who creates floral eco-friendly masterpieces.

The elopement will all be captured on camera by romance obsessed Sammy Taylor. A favourite with couples and featured on top wedding blogs, she creates jaw-dropping photos and has a sharp eye for detail. Sammy is also super personable and has the ability to make anyone feel comfortable. She will be working alongside videographer Dale Rook who will be capturing every detail on cinematic film. Dale is highly passionate about his work and that passion feeds through into his highly emotive films. Like Sammy, Dale’s laid back energy will make anyone feel at ease.

To top off an amazing giveaway, our couple will be treated, at a later date, to a half day vineyard tour, wine tasting and lunch experience courtesy of Visit England’s award winners Vine and Country Tours.

How to Enter

With such a tight turn-around it is required that couples arrange the legal marriage, and that they and their guests come dressed to impress.

The team will be fully responsible for all styling decisions – your wedding is in very capable hands.
