A few weekends ago my husband and were in Hull for his cousins wedding. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. It was sunny (enough for some good melanin top up) and the venue was incredible. A few years ago when we were planning on getting married I looked at this venue - Rise Hall, but we couldn't afford it and they need a lot of notice in advance as well. I can see why though because it's such an amazing venue it must be massively booked up in advance.
I bought fabric from Blantyre market and got a dress made in Blantyre, and a matching tie for Si. He helped me pick the fabric so I thought he should get in on the fun. I liked it cause it's quite geometric and liney - you will see in future post that I love a good geometric print but that stems from my time studying architecture I am sure.
If you are planning on getting married soon I recommend this venue. We stayed in one of the rooms. I have already forgotten it's cool room name but the bathtub was amazing. Sadly I only have one photo. I am sure the website has more treats.
And finally the wonderful grounds. Beautiful to walk around and they had a swing and some games for us to enjoy. It was the perfect weekend. Si got some great shots of me as well.
