As ‘locals’ – Whitehaven is at least in Cumbria, Rachel and Paul only wanted to stay at Belmount on their wedding night, and a weekday wedding suited them better than a whole weekend.
Having been let down quite late in their wedding planning by the venue which they had originally chosen, they were delighted that we were prepared to offer to match the terms agreed with the first venue.
In the middle of a ‘run’ of seven weddings in a row, we were pleased that it was quite small – just 35 guests – and gave us a free weekend. It was a delightful wedding, once again we were blessed with a superb sunny day, with wet days either side – that usually only happens on a Saturday, like the last two weddings. Weather Santa must have been in a benevolent mood. It is really surprising how often that happens… .
