Iscoyd Park, a romantic Georgian country house in Shropshire, is delighted to announce a new Fabulous Friday wedding promotion. Between 1st June 2014 and 1st April 2015, five lucky couples can hire the stunning family home for two nights for the price of one. The wedding party can enjoy exclusive use of Iscoyd Park on a Thursday for two nights, with dinner, luxury bed and breakfast on both evenings, plus a wedding breakfast for up to 60 guests on the Friday, all for £12,000!
Wedding parties canrelax in complete privacy in thismuch loved family home, with its beautiful park, glorious gardens and rich history and enjoy the 750 acres of parkland, providing endless opportunities to capture those special moments. The traditional house is the epitome of luxurious country living with a modern twist.
Whitewell is a charming church which seats up to 150 and is only a four-minute drive from Iscoyd Park. Flanked by trees, it sits in a beautiful and private setting and welcomes both weddings and blessings.
The large Georgian windows of Iscoyd Park frame breathtaking views of the rose and lavender gardens, carefully redesigned a few years ago by Michael Balston and Xa Tollemache – two of the UKs leading garden designers.
Couples are very welcome to plant their own personal tree at Iscoyd Park which will not only be a memento of their wedding for years to come but will also help in the regeneration of the parkland. A tree-planting ceremony can be arranged either on the big day itself (assuming that time allows) or the day after the wedding.
Iscoyd Park has a variety of stunning settings to enjoy the wedding feast. The Marquee, which accommodates 50 to 160 guests, boasts beautiful chandeliers and twinkling pea lights that give a romantic yet spectacular feel. For smaller parties of 50 guests or less, couples may prefer the Drawing Room with wooden floors, family portraits and classical paintings, a romantic and intimate setting.
There are a wide variety of activities on offer for wedding parties to enjoy within the Park. Claypigeon shooting, archery and quad biking can be arranged on request or guests may wish to pamper themselves in the Secret Spa in preparation for the big day! The Secret Spa which has won several national awards including Salon of the Year, launched its new treatment rooms in one of Iscoyd’s newly converted stable buildings in Autumn 2011.
When you think of the original travellers what comes to mind? For me it’s class and style. For those who could afford to travel by air or cruise ship 100 years ago there was no lugging your own trunk or pushing & shoving & racing to try to get seats next to each other as there have been on low cost airlines until recently. There were porters to take care of your monogrammed luggage and passengers arrived at the airport or port elegantly dressed and unflustered. Okay, so that’s probably looking at things through rose tinted glasses, it probably wasn’t that simple in reality, but you get the picture! Now you can get a little of the style from a bygone era with beautiful personalised leather travel accessories from Stow London.
Stow London, the go-to brand for small luxury leather travel accessories, is offering free laser embossing of wedding dates on their secret stowaway envelopes when you buy your wedding thank you gifts or wedding gifts through them. (Normal price £15)
Each item can also be made even more personal through the use of their gold initial embossing service, which is being offered free of charge when three or more items are purchased for your nearest and dearest. (Normal charge £45 per item.)

For the happy couple: If they are planning a honey moon and love to travel, then a double gift that’s luxurious, practical and meaningful is sure to be appreciated. A leather stud box for him and a matching trinket box for her will be treasured forever. Add the stowaway with their wedding date on the reverse and you are sure to impress with your thoughtfully stylish wedding gift.

I adore Greece, in fact a friend and I are now in the habit of trying a different island each year. Each island is different from the last but one thing that is common to all is the friendliness of the Greek people. When I worked for a travel agency quite a few years ago I was lucky enough to go on a trip with a tour operator to Lefkas and Kephalonia, both of which were stunningly beautiful. I’m very pleased to share with you today Book on in Lefkada, with some gorgeous photos to whet your appitite!
Lefkada (Lefkas) lies shimmering like an emerald jewel in the clear, turquoise Ionian seas off the western coast off Greece. Dotted with tranquil, romantic villages, with a wealth of history and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
