“I’m writing this note to tell you how pleased we were with the Kensington Garden Screens for our wedding reception.  Originally I had wanted the screens just for perking up a drab and dingy church hall.  After seeing your designs at your home I realized that using the screens would also make our decorating job much easier. 


Besides looking great the screens also saved the day in finishing up our wedding photographs.   (She was married in St James Cathedral and due to interruptions in the photo session had to finish her formal photos in the reception hall).  Our family pictures were really very nice with the screens behind them. 


The Kensington screens made our pictures of the cake very elegant.  Without the screens our photos would have been  taken against a dingy beige wall with many cubby holes and cupboards in it.  I really don’t know what we would have done without screens.   

If I were to do it again I would have also ordered the columns and pots of ivy, or the ivy topiaries to cover a bit more of the background.  It was such a little bit more money and it would have made a big difference for hardly any more cost.  I could just kick myself. 


We really want you to know what a big part Forte Design played in making our wedding reception such a lovely and memorable event for both Arne and I as well as for our guests.”  Vicki and Arne Nelson  (Kensington Garden Trellis Collection)


“I wanted to thank you again for being such a wonderful part of my sons and daughter-in-law’s wedding with the screens and columns.  So many people remarked about them.”  Bonnie Lemert
