flowers-wedding bouquet generic 2121The Garden Club of Bermuda’s Open Houses and Gardens Programme “A May Wedding” is set to be held on Saturday, May 10 from 10.00am to 4.00pm at Christ Church in Warwick.

The Garden Club of Bermuda described the event by saying, “A traditional Bermuda wedding is a joyous occasion. Please mark your calendars for what promises to be a very special day. Church and houses will be beautifully decorated by our award winning floral designers, and a traditional Bermuda wedding will be depicted throughout the day.

“Christ Church [Presbyterian Church of Scotland] will be decorated with flowers and greenery and filled with celebratory music of the organ and the Hand Bell Choir.

“At 11.00am, Miss Bermuda Katherine Arnfield, portraying the lovely bride, will step from an elegant carriage with her “groom” to welcome guests at Christ Church front entrance. Enhancing the fantasy, a fine and steadfast “topiary” horse will stand in its leather traces at the front of the carriage.

“After a visit to the church, visitors are invited to walk across Middle Road to a narrow lane and the gardens of Kirkdale Farm where a fashion show will begin at 12.45pm.

“Beneath the tents, lemonade and baked goods, Mother’s Day bouquets, wreaths of spring flowers, and plants and seedlings will be offered for sale.

“Adding to the festivities, Bermudian musicians, including the Suzuki Strings, the St. Paul’s Recorder Group, Antoinette Davis on flute, and Andrea Hodson on keyboard plan to give morning and afternoon concerts while Plein Air artists, at their easels, will be painting and selling their art.

“Children can express their own creativity by decorating containers to fill with flowers for Mother’s Day. Afterward, they can explore unknown territory in The Enchanted Garden, made for play and discovery.

  • 10.30am: Churchyard tour, meeting at the north door of Christ Church
