We love Autumn! The Wye Valley is dripping gold, auburn and red as the leaves mark the end of the summer season and the beginning of winter. The richness of colours provide a truly jaw dropping backdrop, which may explain the growing popularity of Autumn weddings here at Flanesford.
As we head towards the end of this colourful time of year, we take a look back at the Wedding of Mr & Mrs Rose a picturesque October celebration;
It all started with a visit from the Bride’s parents, who are local to the Wye Valley, one look around Flanesford and they couldn’t wait to show their daughter and son-in-law to be.
Flanesford Priory building is not only steeped in history it also sleeps 39 guests, one of the many unique reasons to choose Flanesford for your Wedding. It allows you, your friends and families to relax, enjoy the day and not have to worry about who’s organised the taxi home!
Making a weekend of it, allows you to spread out the celebrations and mark the occasion, with countless memories shared with loved ones.
A few words from Mr & Mrs Rose:
Dear Izzie, Dorrie & all at Flanesford
Thank you so much for all of your help & support in the the run up to and on our big day. The venue, the marquee, the food, the accommodation – everything was perfect. We had the most incredible day and cannot thank you enough for making it that way.
With love from Mr & Mrs Rose
