Six tablescapes and a whole heap of styling inspiration will be happening at The Wild Boar, Crook, this Sunday for their wedding open day. I like this venue a lot. It's a proper country inn with log fires, private woodland and tarn, a smokehouse (for smoking the wild boar, obviously), and a clay pigeon shooting range. It's all kinds of cosy and it always smells really good, I mean REALLY good, and while smell is possibly not the first thing on your list of priorities when choosing a wedding venue, the combination of wood fires, forest floor, fresh coffee and cooking, coming from the open kitchen, is a winner...in fact if you can't find me on Sunday, I'l probably be dozing in one of the big leather armchairs...
I'm partnering with Kendal floral designer Katie Robinson from Made In Flowers. Katie and I have worked together on quite a few events now and so I thought I'd revisit a few of those here. Katie is great, firstly she listens, she's innovative and my word is she efficient?! She's also been known to chop down her own garden to provide just the right kind of foliage! We're excited and we're looking forward to meeting new couples and hearing your wedding plans - if you're looking for us we'll be the ones with flowers in our hair.
If you are thinking about getting married in the Lake District, and you like steak, I'd say this is a good venue for you.
Wild Boar Wedding Fayre, Crook Road, Windermere, Cumbria. 12noon - 4pm on Sunday 22nd, February, 2015.
