Brits Going Back To Chintz With Traditional Weddings With All
Thursday, 09 September 2010
With the trend for vintage chic proving ever popular, more and more brides-to-be are reverting to a traditional 'lace and all the trimmings' wedding - and one unique venue on the Isle of Wight is providing 'enchanted' weddings to ensure their needs are completely catered for.
Enchanted Manor offers couples a romantic, personal and unique wedding in stunning tranquil surroundings, amongst the Sylvan woodlands which overlook the rugged coastline of St Catherine's Point. This magical boutique retreat offers a secluded hideaway for discerning brides, grooms and guests fed up with run of the mill accommodation.
With a wave of their magic wand, owners Ric and Maggie Hilton, create a beautiful and intimate wedding with all the trimmings, to ensure couples have their own "Happy Ever After", organising everything from the cake, to the photographer, to the wedding gifts.
Maggie Hilton comments: "If you are looking for a truly memorable wedding and honeymoon in a stunning location, look no further. We pamper our guests from the moment they arrive and dedicate a host to the party to ensure that everyone is looked after personally. We cater for small parties of two for an intimate ceremony up to 60 guests for a larger occasion.
"Due to demand over the past few years, we have introduced themed weddings into our packages for those who want something fun and different for their guests.
"We've also seen a real change in what brides and grooms are looking for in a wedding. Traditional lace and all the trimmings is definitely a real come-back trend, and we've found that more and more people are looking to surprise their guests and make their day stand out in the crowd."
There are two wedding venues to choose from at the manor - the stunning outside fairytale wedding with ornate gazebos, marble fountains, statues and landscaped gardens and the elegant wedding room inside the manor for the more intimate, traditional ceremonies.
The Enchanted Manor is listed on accommodation, hospitality and tourism website www.iknow-hampshire.co.uk, part of the iknow-uk group of sites which offer a one-stop solution for people planning their special event in the UK. The sites have a comprehensive guide to regional accommodation and hospitality, making them an invaluable resource for those looking to find things to do or places to stay in Britain.
Marcus Simmons, managing director of www.iknow-hampshire.co.uk, said: "This venue has everything for those wanting a truly unique wedding. It's a secluded hideaway for discerning brides, grooms and guests who are fed up with run of the mill accommodation and are looking for somewhere different with excellent service and facilities, and beautiful surroundings.
"The Enchanted Manor can accommodate all your friends and family, whilst taking the hassle out of planning and making everything so much more enjoyable!"
