It may seem that we still have a long way to go with the frosty mornings of the last couple of days,  but Spring is definitely just around the corner. As an old proverb says "No matter how long the winter Spring is sure to follow"


The nights are getting lighter and the first flowers are starting to bloom. The daffodils & snow drops are adding much needed colour and signify that the end of winter is in sight.  "Spring adds new life and new beauty to all that is."   Jessica Harrelson

Here at Shottle Hall spring means one thing the wedding season is starting to pick up speed and it's easy to see why. The cosy winter weddings are a distant memory, and the freshness & promise of new beginnings make spring a really special time to fall in love and say I do.

Spring Love

Bright- is the sky, on a crystal clear day

You run to see me, to see me this way

Life is blooming, it's a sight to see

Your heart is pounding- busy as a bee

The flowers are blooming, soft and bright

The sun shines more loudly, magnificent light

The birds keep singing, then fly into view

While nature keeps on smiling- smiling back at you

As warmth grows around us- never to part

It grows inside me, right into my heart

Leaving winter behind- warming our souls

Letting life in, abandoning the cold

So this is the time- all wrapped up

Spring life is showing, bursting with love

The warmer temperatures and longer days, coupled with April & May being the driest moths of the year make spring weddings the perfect choice. The pretty pastel colour palettes and beautiful flowers set a readymade theme for any spring wedding. With popular wedding flowers such as peonies, roses, sweet peas and tulips all available in abundance and in season at this time of year you will be spoilt for choice.
