Lake District

The Lake District Launches Twilight Weddings

Lake District

According to Pinterest, the wedding trend for 2019 is ‘moon gatherings’, and there is no more a romantic place to wed than the northern Lake District where light pollution is minimal, meaning visitors can see the moon in all its glory when the sun goes down and benefit from the amazing starlight.

To cater for this growing trend, the Lake District’s award winning Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa, in Keswick, has introduced The Twilight Wedding Package, offering bridal parties a truly atmospheric yet relaxed and modern wedding.  The package enables couples to tie the knot with a 4pm ceremony, in a serene setting of 400 acres of private woodland and deer park, beside the glimmering Bassenthwaite Lake made famous by the Lake poets including Wordsworth. As the evening rolls in and darkness nears, guests can party the night away under the gleaming Lake District moonlight.  Whether couples choose a balmy summer night, a serene springtime sunset, the golden hues of autumn or a frosty winter evening to say ‘I do’, Armathwaite Hall’s dramatic countryside scenery makes for the most stunning of locations.

Lake District

This civil ceremony, which includes drinks of Prosecco or Peroni, aims to provide a magical wedding ‘day’ that is big on love and low on fuss. Armathwaite Hall’s chefs will prepare a stylish hog roast or barbecueto serve guests a delicious outdoor meal that is full of flavour and soul without the formalities of traditional wedding dining. Guests can be seated outdoors in warmer months for an alfresco dining experience or take to the cosiness of the modern Broadwater Suite during those chilly evenings.

As the evening progresses, the newlyweds can celebrate their first dance in the Broadwater Suite where Armathwaite Hall’s resident DJ will be on hand to set the mood and keep guests on their feet until the late hours.

Lake District

The bridal couple will then enjoy a complimentary night’s stay in one of the venue’s feature rooms with breath-taking views of the water and a delicious cooked breakfast in the morning. All the guests staying at the hotel can also use the state-of-the-art spa facilities, including the hydrotherapy pool, the aroma room and Snow Quartz Crystal, a luxury steam room and sauna, tropical showers and the new tranquillity terrace.

Twilight Weddings at Armathwaite Hall are a truly unique way for couples to celebrate the beginning of the next chapter in their life together in a sophisticated and memorable way.

Zuhair Murad Fall 2018

 

Zuhair Murad’s Fall 2018 bridal collection takes an ode to the shades of blushing pink and powdery palettes.  The bridal gowns are influenced by embellishing silk chiffon, tulle, floral themes, Mikado and lace reminiscing some of his previous inspirations.  The detachable over-skirts and the distinctive long capes define this opulent collection giving the bride the option and flexibility to switch looks during her very special day.  Beads, intricate hand embroidery and 3-D petals were the highlights of each of the fairytale dresses, however, the statement accessories such as the ruffled tulle stoles around the shoulder and the beaded and floor length capes added a touch of magic and Hollywood glamour for every beautiful bride to be! Bride Icon have the official Fall 2018 photos.

The Yoga Wellness Company Offers Luxury Retreats for 2018

yoga“New Year, New You” – we are all familiar with the age-old cliché that gets banded around at this time of year, yet nonetheless, we routinely begin to prep-talk ourselves about all the healthy initiatives we will undertake (after Christmas that is!),  However, aside from the initial two-week hype in January, very rarely do we actually follow through on our New Year’s #HealthGoals – and it’s easy to see why with summer seemingly way over the horizon.

YogaSo, this year, let’s try a new tactic. Instead of telling ourselves all the things we need to give up, let’s give ourselves something to look forward to; something that not only fits with our health goals, but something that will also give us a new outlook on maintaining a healthy lifestyle – all year round.

iceland

The Natural Beauty of Iceland – Honeymoon Destination

icelandIceland has become a popular getaway destination in recent years, purely because of its stunning natural beauty and diversity of landscape. The Nordic experts over at Baltic Travel Company have put together a list of reasons why you have to visit Iceland.

The Northern Lights

Iceland’s placement on top of the world ensures that it’s the best place to catch a glance of the awe-inspiring Northern Lights. Most commonly seen from September until mid-April, it is one of the world’s most famous natural occurrences to view and only the lucky few get to have a full show of them.

 

 icelandThe Blue Lagoon

Set in the heart of the Icelandic landscape, the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland, and rightly so as it is quite magnificent with its aqua blue water and naturally high temperatures, guaranteed to relax you.

 The Icelandic Whales

Whale watching in Iceland is famous for the sheer fact that you are almost always guaranteed to spot one of these magnificent creatures off the coast of Reykjavik. There are many different tours which offer various different types of sightings dependent on how keen you are to see them.

The Roads

Famous for the vast open spaces and winding roads which go on for miles, curving around stunning natural landscape and rock formations. Iceland is a great place to hire a car and take a long road trip stopping off at different places as you go.

icelandThe Unusual Architecture

Iceland is special because of its unique, if slightly derelict feel. Heading into the famous town of Reykjavik, you will be immersed in brightly colored buildings and quaint little pubs filled with bustling locals. If you want to delve into local life, head down to the pubs to try one of Iceland’s fine craft beers.

The Wildlife

Not only are the whales a sight for sore eyes, but Iceland boasts some other amazing wildlife, such as Puffins, very pretty and colourful sea birds which can be found nesting on the edges of cliffs.  If you are lucky enough to get close enough to them you will notice the different patterns on their beaks which give them their unique look.

 

 IcelandThe Icelandic Glaciers

Just when you didn’t think Iceland could offer anything more, you find yourself immersed in its stunning glaciers. Known as the ‘Land of Ice & Fire’ because of the number of glaciers and volcanos within the country, Iceland really does offer it all. With over 10 different glaciers to visit, you may find it hard to narrow it down to the ones you want to see.

The Food

The cuisine of Iceland dates back for centuries, with key elements being lamb, dairy and fish, this is because of the vast amount of Ocean surrounding the country. Modern Icelandic food includes local ingredients such as salmon, trout, crowberry, Icelandic moss, wild mushrooms and an array of dairy products.

The Mountains

Much of the Icelandic landscape is consumed by mountains that even the most confident of mountaineers would find it a little daunting. With various breathtakingly beautiful types, some much larger and covering a lot more ground than others, you are spoilt for choice on hiking trails.

The Volcanos

One of the main reasons people visit this dramatic landscape is to witness one of more than 15 volcanos across the Icelandic landscape, with all of them offering varying looks and scales. Many are open to hikes whilst others are noted as too hazardous to get close to.

Trends For An Autumn Wedding By Veritas

With Autumn well and truly here, it’s time to get to grips with this season’s bridal fashion and top jewellery trends. Our friends at Veritas Gift have been keeping a close eye on the recent bridal catwalks and have given their top trends that will be making waves this Autumn here on Bride Icon:

Forehead BandsBeginning with forehead bands, which were seen on every bridal catwalk at the bridal fashion shows – it seems they are here to stay!  An alternative to the veil – this season it’s all about adding an elegant and 20’s inspired twist with an embellished, lace headpiece. With so many different styles to try, it can enhance the vintage chic glamour look or perhaps go a little more subtle with a plain lace band.

Adding a hint of chic to the wedding outfit, it seems a choker style necklace is going to be a strong contender within bridal fashion this Autumn. Coming in many different shapes and styles, you can definitely find one to suit your taste, perhaps go a little more elegant with a silver band choker.

veritasStill a firm favorite on catwalks, delicate necklaces seem to always add some sophistication to a bridal outfit, bringing a certain elegance to the décolletage area. However, you may want to opt for perhaps a more luxurious diamond encrusted necklace which you can treasure for years to come.

 

VeritasPendants are always popular with brides, purely because they are a piece that can be kept and cherished.  Many pendants open up allowing to keep a photo inside, which of course, adds a very personal touch. Veritas gifts offer an array of beautifully crafted pendants in many different styles and colours- their acorn pendant is particularly a strong favorite with their clients.

Enamel jewellery has long been a favourite for many women who want to show off their individual style.  The enamel range of jewellery seems to be making its way slowly into bridal fashion.  There are many different designs and colors to choose from, with some popular options being enamel cuffs that add a touch of drama to a bridal look!  For more tips and jewellery designs see  www.veritasgifts.co.ukVeritas

Indian Summer Wedding Fair @ Hedsor House

HedsorHedsor House opened its doors this week to reveal the grandeur of this stunning Georgian stately home with an exquisite Indian Summer Wedding Fair. The country house which is suitably located within 45 minutes from London, and set in 100 acres of Buckinghamshire parkland with Grade II listed gardens, became a vision of illuminated splendour to the delight of the many visitors.

Hedsor

Privately-owned and immaculately sustained by the Shephard Family, Hedsor House is not only a luxury venue for weddings, it takes pride in making sure it is also seen as a contemporary and current venue, celebrating high profile events with clients and global brands such and Mercedez-Benz, BBC, Ferrari, Johnny Depp and our favourite George Clooney, who recently filmed his latest advert being kidnapped to Hedsor House for Nespresso!

Hedsor

Upon arriving at the grand entrance hall, guests were promptly transported into an aura of enchantment with lighting effects by Just Seventy Ltd – an event design management company, creating the exuberance to set the stage for an evening of quintessential wedding inspiration.

Hedsor

The heart of the Centre Hall with its domed ceiling, transformed into a ceremonial setting with an elegant archway of flowers by florist Wild About that streamed through the magnificent mansion – creating a bouquet of delightful scents and shades of an Indian Summer.

Hedsor House is renowned for its own historical features and period characteristics. Nonetheless, amongst the supreme heritage, the house also offers a blank canvass along with a natural radiance to create just the right ambience for that perfect country wedding.

Of course, for every wedding the reception is positioned at the very heart of the occasion, and to present its finery, there is nothing quite as prominent as the Grand Ballroom!   Catering for up to 150 guests the Indian Summer theme flowed into a selection of ostentatious table settings created by the artistic Rachel Ramsbottom of Create.  The inventive team from Create also supplied the delicious food throughout the evening, providing guests with a selection of succulent savoury and sweet canapés bursting with flavour and colours.

Bride Icon would like to thank Hedsor House for a wonderful evening.  It is the perfect country house for a luxury wedding with a picturesque backdrop for civil wedding ceremonies and blessings.  Not only can the ceremonies take place in the house and estate, but outdoor blessings can take part on the beautifully preserved green lawns.  Of course, Indian weddings –  as we know it – can be a large scale affair, but Hedsor House can equally take up to 800 guests with a marquee – making it the perfect Indian Summer wedding!
