on Friday, Sue, Margaret and I went to Maidstone to visit All Saints Church Maidstone and record the flowers at the festival. The theme was" A celebration of the Apostles and the Saints of Kent"
Inside this vast Church was a multitude of flowers, first off the Altar with three Bouquets representing Christ the King. To the left of the altar is St David and right is St Andrew.The screen in front of the window is a Victorian addition added later which sadly cover the main window. This window with conventional photography would have blown out light wise due to the light from behind so two images of different exposures were placed one on top of each other to give this result.
Saint Augustine of Canterbury was considered to be the founder of the English Church in the year 597, note the Mitre to the side.
Font with Baptism Shell and a reflection of the church in the jug.
Saint Catherine of Alexandria, martyred in the 4th century with Peacock Feathers in the display.
Close up of the feather on the floor.
Saint Thomas of Canterbury. This depicts the murder of Thomas Becket in 1170.
One of the many other windows in the church.
Saint Cecilia, she was the patroness of musicians.
Saint Patrick, known as the Apostle of Ireland.
This is the first batch with more to follow, thanks for looking.
Best regards, Mike
