THERE IS A STORY BEHIND EVERY DETAIL AT HIGHFIELD
Every feature and ornament has been thoughtfully selected to represent either the venue’s rich heritage or our only family’s past, present and future, which we welcome guests to enjoy with us.
TO THE MANOR BORN – VIA PECKHAM.
This cosy little snug is a small reflection of us and contains just about all of Andy and Lindsey’s mementoes from the one-bedroom flat in Peckham where they lived before Highfield.
- MOON NO MOON -
Above the fireplace is an artwork featuring the message ‘Moon – No Moon’, with a funny story of its own. Behind it is a TV so that overflow guests can watch some of our bigger wedding ceremonies by video link. We needed a piece of artwork to cover the TV when not in use so Andy grabbed an old picture frame we’d found and quickly painted this to fit into it.
Its inspiration came from Andy and Lindsey’s son, Alban,, who is fascinated by stories of space, astronauts and the moon.
He runs to the window every day to look for the moon and tell us if there is a ‘moon or no moon’.
It’s become a daily ritual and he gets quite upset if it’s not there!
We intended to replace this painting with some ‘proper art’ but it’s become quite a feature that everyone comments on so we’ve left it.
- LINDSEY & ANDY -
- THE MOCK UP BAR-
An engagement gift from one of Lindsey and Andy's closest friends, two Dan Hillier prints - one of which features an owl and the other a sorceress, they were given as they they seem to represent Andy and Lindsey’s different personalities.
The Library Bar also features a geometric brass bar.
the striking form was developed as a mock up for a building façade we designed in India, it was such a beautiful shape we felt it should be scaled to become a piece of furniture. It was created by a local craftsman to our design and proved a real technical challenge.
