A Rather Posh Weekend

Happy Sunny Sunday bloglies.  I do hope that the weather has been as kind to you this weekend as it has been to the Midlands.  Hot hot hot!!

We were lucky enough to be guests at a beautiful wedding, held at Walton Hall in Wellesbourne near Stratford, yesterday.   It has been a truly gorgeous weekend with much good food, wine, laughter and good company.  Just what the doctor ordered.  We stayed overnight at a hotel in the grounds and it almost feels as though we've been on a mini-break, living the high life!

As I haven't sought permission to post pictures of the happy couple I'll just share a couple of general pics, suitably cropped photographs and images from the day and of the grounds of the Hall.

St James' Church in the grounds of Walton Hall was the venue for the ceremony 

I loved this ornately adorned cross in the tiny churchyard

 I loved the muted colours of the table centre pieces 

Bridal bouquet -  scented and very heavy!

The bride's beautiful dress - very elegant  in its simplicity ....

Which allowed the bride to wear a very eyecatching vintage looking hair adornment with a matching bracelet cuff and earrings.

We woke this morning to hot sunshine and after indulging in the all inclusive buffet breakfast we had time for a wander around the grounds before we needed to check out of the hotel.    The picture above was taken from a sweet little wooden bridge, where we watched lots of dragonflies dancing on top of the water.  

It was an idyllic weekend and I could quite easily have stayed another night.


Back to work for me tomorrow.  Not sure how I'm feeling about that really.  At least I only have to do five days though as then I'm on a week's leave.  Hurrah!

How was your weekend? 



  1. I am sure that lovely break was just what you needed. I hope your week's leave is as relaxing.

  2. We spent part of ours watching dragonflies too.

    May your week go well. Cro x

I've taken a precious day of annual leave today.  I've really struggled this week with feeling so yuk and I needed the restorative ...
