- Wedding: July 2000
I’d like to champion the small wedding venue. I found it extremely difficult to find the special venue I’d dreamed of back in 2000 for my small guest list of 23 (including us, yes v-small).
We found a venue but I personally wanted something a bit more up market. Don’t get me wrong, it was a lovely day. You see, we don’t really know that many people (boo, hoo) and have very little in the way of family on either side. Also, I didn’t want the pomp and cermeony of a big wedding or the expense for that matter.
What I was very lucky to experience last month was my best friends, equally small but so much better wedding.It was in the Lake District at Gilpin’s Lake House. If you don’t believe me on how amazing it was look at their website http://www.gilpinlodge.co.uk/Lake-House-Weddings-30.cfm and see the photos. A private lake for heaven sake! A hot tub on the side of it for heaven sake! It was special, very special, I can’t say any more.
