    My parents stayed here a few years ago on the way back from visiting my fiancé & me in Scotland. They liked it so much they extended thier stay by 2 days!

    I’d love to be able to do the same on the way to see my parents & I’m sure they would too 🙂 Plus my fiancé would have something to look forwards to after visiting the inlaws!

    Ironically Hardwick Hall is 10 minutes from us but we’ve never stayed there, can’t say I would turn it down! I have been to several Wedding Fair’s there and the bedrooms are stunning

    We have been saving for 6 months and have another 14 months to go before the wedding and every spare penny is going towards what will be the best day of our lives, afterall we’ll only do it once! No holidays, no weekends away and no treats until then but it’ll be worth it! It would be lovely to have a night away in such a gorgeous hotel to really appreciate and take time for each other without worrying about how much its costing. x

    We got married at Hardwick Hall in August 2005. Almost 6 years later and 3 kids under 5 years, we could really do with a break! And what better way to spend it at the place where it all started…..

    With Hubby going away to work for 6 months at a time, and myself working long hours. Our time spent together is very limited. This would be a great chance for us to spend some time together, without the two children. Just for the two of us.
    Hardwick Hall is a great veune to get married in.

    Hardwick Hall is an absolute lovely venue, i’d recommend it to any of you bride 2 be – lot’s of compliments from conference attendees from work.

    Unfortunately, when OH called to have a look around the date we wanted was booked and it’s a little far to travel to/from our chosen venue 🙁

    A stranger you were once.
    Then, with a gentle look you took my hand.
    As our lives engaged,
    you lit my life and I held both your hands.
    Now that decades have passed,
    ours souls have indeed become one.
    How fortunate we are
    that we have found the love so true
    that everyone dreams about.

    Come with me and take my hand
    I will take you to a mystical land
    Upon my bed of a thousand roses
    Into which our love willingly imposes

    The smell of roses permeates the air
    Passionate touches with tender care
    One hundred candles luminous glow
    Replicating the moon from below

    On 25 August we”re getting on a plane to New Zealand and not coming back. After all our frantic packing and organising a Right Royal break to fabulous Rocklcliffe Hall would be the ultimate send-off from beautiful ‘Up North’ Britain.

    I would love to win this, not for my fiance and I but for my mum and dad. My dad works away because he cant get work here and its really hard on my mum who tries so hard to make everyones day better and brighter. She is always there with words of praise advice or comefort and it would be an honour to win this and send them away for a short break together before he has to go away again. I love you mom
