Afternoon Lovely Peeps,

I am just going to go slightly off topic here and ask if any of you saw The Walking Dead last night? Oh. My. Goodness. The Govenor was bad enough but Negan is just unbelievable. Absolutely blinding end to the series and what a cliff hanger! I haven’t stopped thinking about it! If you guys are wondering what the hell I am talking about then you need to get involved in what I think is the best show on TV. I know everyone raves about Breaking Bad but The Walking Dead is in a league of its own. It’s so so good and continues to deliver. The 6th series ended last night and I think it was the best season finale in the show so far. If you haven’t seen any of the series then definitely start with series 1 – you have to too understand the importance of series 6 and its ending. Bring on Series 7!!!

Anyway! Back to weddings and we have an incredible new outdoor festival wedding venue to share with you. Think the stunning Yorkshire Dales with its dramatic views of the countryside, a lake, a ceremony area in its own little meadow right by a river, a large tipi meadow in a valley, a woodland and a camping field and you should have a pretty good picture of everything this gorgeous little piece of the UK can offer you. Oh and did I mention its only £1800? An absolute bargain if you ask me.

Ladies and Gents, allow me to introduce you to our gorgeous new and EXCLUSIVE Festival Brides Wedding Venue, Kilnsey Park – our Meadow, Lake and Woodland in The Yorkshire Dales…..
