One thing that stands out here is the amount of decoration on the rood screen in comparison to everything else!

I was also kind of surprised with the window decorations - likely just local flowers, but I don't think I have seen church windows adorned like this before.

Now that you mention it, your right! I would presume it is for some event, be it the harvest festival, Christmas or a wedding! Or maybe it's simply how the local congregation's flower arrangers liked to decorate the church!
