Nothing quite prepares you for Sezincote. After winding through the mighty oaks that line the long drive of this Gloucestershire garden on the edge of the Cotswolds, you see a weathered-copper onion dome straight out of India. The south front, complete with curving orangery, unfurls above a Repton landscape that has remained unchanged since the mid-19th century. The garden is blessed by a series of spring-fed pools, connected by gurgling water which eventually tumbles into the Island Pool in the valley bottom, before joining the River Evenlode below.
It was an absolute joy to create floral magic for By Chennai at Sezincote House on what had to be the hottest day of the year in 2020! We did a set up fit for cover guidelines and restrictions - showing that small can still be beautiful! Expertly photographed by Becky Goddard photographer. I wanted the florals to grow from the arch, up and around the peacock window, flowing down the steps, and then enveloping up and around the table with florals up and over the tabletop and down the front dropping down to the floor so the entire set up was one with no start and no finish.
