Spring at Rockbeare Manor

This year has shown us that you can never quite tell what the British weather is going to throw at us.  In early March last year we had blossoms and spring bulbs blooming a plenty, whereas this year we had inches of snow.  It just goes to show that you can never predict the British weather!

We’re pleased to say though that our daffodils (which appear in their thousands) have been as resilient as ever and are still standing proud, not to mention the grape hyacinth’s and cyclamens. The grounds are really pretty in Spring time and can make such a fascinating backdrop for Weddings at this time of year.

The House and Grounds at Spring-time

At Rockbeare Manor it’s not all about the grandeur of the front of the house – the front façade is impressive, but there are other, much more secluded spots that would make the perfect addition to your wedding album. One of our favourite places for photographs is on the little path that leads through a very natural wooded area, as you are approaching the Manor.  There are trees either side, and the ground is a carpet of little spring flowers providing no end of colour and interest. On a crisp Spring day, with a light mist it seems magical.

Spring's finest flowers

As for your wedding flowers, Spring provides no end of classical options. Peony’s and roses are always gorgeous – show stoppers that will provide instant elegance to your wedding. Tulips and gerberas would be perfect for a fresh and vibrant feel, or for a vintage, rustic or countryside look, how about sweet peas and buttercups?

Whilst Summer is often the first port of call for many, it’s always worth considering the other seasons as they all have so much to offer in their own individual way.
