Once upon a time in a fairytale kingdom there lived a beautiful Princess, fair and true. She and her best friend, Claire, would laugh and run in the grounds of the castle and joke that one day they would be
sisters and unite the two noble families of the village. But whilst she was happy at the castle, as in all good fairytales Princess Gemma knew that one day she must leave this place and be rescued from her tower by a great and handsome knight on his mighty steed.

The kingdom was a peaceful place and often Royal friends would visit the castle. On one such occasion the King announced a Royal Tournament was to take place in the Court. As there was no Prince it fell to Princess Gemma and the son of the other nobles, Claire’s brother George, to defend the honour of the Kingdom. It was decided that the tournament would take place at the Court of Tennis within the town and that Gemma and George would stand side by side, partnering one another in this friendly battle.

However though both fought bravely, Gemma was a peace-loving Princess and could not wield her sword as well as her competitors. Despite her most valiant efforts, their opponents were more seasoned in war and the battle was lost. Though she had enjoyed the bout immensely the defeat brought great sorrow to the Princess for she had not been able to defend her family’s honour. Seeing this, her partner in battle George (with whom she had long since been friends) offered to cheer her spirits, and invited her to accompany him for an intimate feast.

As Gemma slept peacefully in the highest tower of the castle, she dreamt once more of her fairytale rescue by her mysterious noble knight. Suddenly she was awoken from her slumber by a strange sound in the distance. As she listened it seemed to get louder; a deep rumbling sound now filling the air and thundering ever closer.  But what could it be? For a moment she feared it could be a deadly dragon or a great foreign army until, with a final mighty roar the sound suddenly stopped.

As cautiously she looked down from the castle ramparts a strange sight greeted her. Across the drawbridge sat a mighty, mystical beast with huge circular legs and gleaming steel armour. Just as she was about to call the guards, from the beast’s back came a man, a knight… a knight upon a noble steed!

As the brave Sir George dismounted and approached the tower the Princess knew she had at last found her perfect Prince, and IN one she had known all along. As Sir George helped her to her carriage astride the strange creature he called “tractor”, magic filled the air and their laughter rang through the night.

It was not long before the couple announced that they were to be wed and the people of the kingdom rejoiced. The courtiers bustled around to supply the most resplendent finery for the wedding. The Princess scoured the land for the finest tailors and dressmakers, florists and cake-makers, and announced a mighty feast to be held at the Royal guesthouse of the Crown Spa Hotel after the wedding at the fine church of St Matthew in the heart of the kingdom.

Dressed in a stunning white gown made by respected seamstress Sophia Tolli, Princess Gemma and her beautiful bridesmaids shrieked with delight at the surprise arrival of the Royal Bentley carriage which transported them to the beginning of the amazing celebration.

It was a true fairytale wedding; her prince dressed in the finest armour and the kingdom beautifully transformed in celebration of their love. As the elated couple dipped and danced by the harbour set upon a magical sunset background, true love ran its course.  For the girl that dreamed of a handsome prince once upon a fairytale, upon that special day all of her wishes came to pass and she and her best friend
Claire became sisters at last.

All that were there that day and all that read this tale and share their memories shall know and remember the story of the Princess and the Tractor, but for them the fairytale has only just begun… long may it continue!

.
And they all lived happily ever after.

.

.
The End.

Just AMAZING, wouldn’t you agree Brides Up North?
