Happy New year from all at Crockwell and here’s to a prosperous 2018, particularly for all those tying the knot this year.
We thought we’d look back on a glorious 2017 in photos. Thank you to all our wonderful couples, our amazing staff and some great suppliers too.
After a busy January & February carrying out maintenance, we kicked off 2017 with a bang with the marquee looking better than ever complete with a starlit ceiling.
This summer, the parkland adjoining the driveway has really come into it’s own. The trees planted last year have all survived and in the autumn we installed iron railings to complement the field and keep stock in. The Spring saw our first or many Open Evenings, all of which have been warmly received including a summer afternoon which we intend on repeating for 2018.
This year the Garden Gazebo has seen a number of ceremonies. All have worked well and we look forward to seeing its’ continued use in 2018. We have also celebrated our first marriages in the Main Marquee, newly licensed this year. This is a great option for those with larger numbers who do not want the compromise of splitting guests. We then turn the marquee around for the wedding breakfast while you enjoy drinks and photos either in the gardens or vaulted barn and bar marquee.
In June, Bay & Hermione celebrated their 30th Wedding Anniversary!
The gardens have continued to thrive under Hermione’s tender care. The strip of wild flowers adjoining the driveway has also come to life making a stunning backdrop for wedding photos.
December saw more snowfall than we’ve had in recent years and left Crockwell looking like a winter wonderland. Happy New Year from all at Crockwell and best wishes for 2018!
