Royal Wedding Fever
As we all know, on Saturday 19th May Rachel Meghan Markle will wed Prince Harry at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Meghan Markle is best known for her role as Rachel Zane in the drama series ‘Suits’, and in 2018 was selected as one of the ‘100 most influential people’ in the world – a great match for Prince Harry we think! We know our Brides of Nottingham will be watching keenly with interest and seeking inspiration from what is set to be the wedding of the year! From wedding dress sophistication to cake glory, they will certainly be setting the bar high for weddings of 2018.
In February we talked baby boom, and of course in April Prince Louis Arthur Charles grabbed attention galore, and rightly so! We are so excited that royal fever is set to continue. In fact, royal fever is ripe in 2018, with 2 royal weddings, 2 new babies, and other great milestones!
Back in the day, 1642 to be precise, Byron of Colwick Hall set foot with his men to support the royal cause in aid of King Charles at the ‘Battle of Edgehill’. Continuing royal fortification, our team have designed a dedicated house cocktail – The Rosecco – a marriage made in heaven between Prosecco and petals!
With days left before the hugely anticipated royal wedding it’s all hands at deck for a celebration Colwick Hall style. Every royal wedding has a suit… and in that vigour a royal afternoon tea is being prepared by the chefs. With coronation chicken finger sandwiches, prawn vol au vents with marie rose sauce, and sherry trifle – it doesn’t get any more beautifully British!
Our Champagne Lounge will be dressed in glittering gold bunting, complete with the romantic union being shown on our TV screen. On the terrace, Pimms or Prosecco will prevail as you stroll the gardens, and upon entering the 1776 Grand Ballroom (the perfect venue for the occasion and home to many of our own delightful weddings), an afternoon tea fit for Kings and Queens will await.
Taking place on a Saturday (a break from tradition) means that many can join in celebrations and are already planning street parties, school dress up days, live televised screenings and much more! Find out what’s happening in and around Nottingham in a recent article from Rachel Gorman at the Nottingham Post.
We hope you’ll join us for the occasion!
