Mother nature is very unpredictable at the best of times, especially with weddings in the UK, but on this occasion her timing was impeccable. At Derwent Manor, the day before was filled with sunshine, blue skies and green fields. Waking up to a winter wonderland the following day, with 2-3 inches of fresh snow, was just magical and a perfect romantic setting for a white winter wedding.
Derwent Manor Hotel, in Allensford, has 54 bedrooms including five suites that can accommodate wedding guests. There are also six luxury boutique cottages, where I had the pleasure of staying, a restaurant, bar, leisure club, pool and spa. But my favourite has to be the grounds with surrounding views, which were breathtaking.
