In the west we often accept the tradition of a white wedding dress as a staple part of  the wedding celebration and assume that it has always been the case.

Not so, the white wedding dress fashion was initially introduced as a  protest against the effects of the industrial revolution! Below are a ten interesting facts around wedding attire… Continue reading “Weddings at Lancaster House – That All-Important Wedding Dress”

Sunshine Wedding with Surprise Lake Cruise at Low Wood Bay

Andy and Beth recently held their wedding reception at Low Wood Bay, following a ceremony at a local church. We are thrilled that they shared with us details of their wedding along with photos of their wedding celebrations.

In the days leading up to Andy and Beth Wright’s wedding, the weather forecasts were dismal – ‘Gale force winds and snow to make way for cloudy Bank Holiday weekend’  was the prophecy  of doom from one leading newspaper.

Easter Monday dawned, the mist parted and it turned out to be one of the most glorious days of the year to date. In her own words, Beth tells us why Low Wood Bay has a special place in her heart and shares a few memories from their beautiful wedding day.

Sending our guests “POTTY” at New Year

Here at Lancaster House, we’re fortunate that we have so many return guests join us to celebrate New Year. We’re proud to say that many of them we now regard more as ‘friends’ and it’s always one of my favourite days of the year welcoming old friends back to “The House”.

I particularly enjoy New Year’s Day afternoon when Everyone is feeling a little lethargic after the previous night’s festivities, but there’s a wonderful sense of relaxed happiness as the guests make themselves at home. Over the last ten years, we’ve done all sorts of activities on 1st January from Canal trips to Whisky tasting, Archery to Cake Decorating. But this year will certainly go down in my memory as one of the best yet. Continue reading “Sending our guests “POTTY” at New Year”
