    Ok so trying this again but am doing 2 pics at a time as I am putting too many up in one post & it won't upload them so here goes...

    Ok so my appointment with them was at 2oclock Thursday. I haven't took any pictures of when we 1st arrived as we were running late, thanks to my sis who was meant to drop her daughter off to me by 20 past 1 so I could look after her while she went to work but she didn't turn up till nearly 20 to 2!!!! :angry: Luckily the lady was running late as her previous appointment turned up 45mins late :eek:. Still that worked in our favour but this is why my pics are backwards.


    Ok so this is the permanent marquee where the wedding breakfast will be served, it has gorgeous twinkly lights i the ceiling. Obviously it is not laid out for a wedding but I googled it & see it laid out for a wedding & it looks gorgeous!!!

    This is what it looks like on google all made up for a wedding.

    Think I prefer the brown chairs though to the black....


    Ok so this is the room where we will get married. The chairs are apparantly laid out in a curve so it is different to the normal lay out. To be honest I can't really picture it in my head but am sure it looks amazing!

    I know it doesn't look too special at the mo but I think all laid out properly it will look amazing!

    The lounge area which is next to the bar & where people can sit to get away from the music & can chat together. They have also told us that they will arrange the whole room however we like! If we want everything taken out and put in how we like they will!! Don't think I will do that though as think it will all be set out lovely how they do it & love the way the lounge area is all set out.

    There is a gorgeous pond in the grounds will just warn all the parents about it 1st. Excuse how misty it looks I took it through the window of the marquee.

    Mmmm yummy thats better!! :lol: Thank you for all your lovely comments! I am so excited. Soph did you take any pics of your venue? I would love to see it! xxx

    Ok so my mum came with me Thursday as Mark couldn't take anymore time off work so I am taking him the week after next as he has a week off. Lucky enough he trusted me to make a good choice!!! :lol: . My mum was a star as always! She kept both the kiddies occupied, with a little help of this:

Nothing against you guys of course just know how I would feel if I stumbled acroos & pic of Ryan that I hadn't put up one day!! :D

    Excuse the random man!!! lol


    This is some pics of the long driveway, its about half a mile long & so lovely

    And the automatic gates. It all looks so posh. I wanted to take some more pics & try & get some pics of the gates as you enter but then someone came behind me!! So inconsidereate of them!!! :lol: :lol:
    [​IMG]
    See how close the travellodge is? Love it! Know we won't have a bridal suite but just as longs as the bed isn't 2 singles pushed together I won't care!! :lol: Mind you now we have bough the date forward my cousin can come as she was away on the 15th, & she has said if I give her my room keys her & her husband will go in & decorate our room with rose petals & candles & stuff. So sweet of her!!

    When I went there & discussed the money with her I said about adding the 2.5% V.A.T as I had worked it out at 20%. She said no, if we book this year they are letting us pay the 17.5%!!! So that has saved us £120 to what I worked it out at!! :D Also we should be getting our deposit back from the other venue aswell!!! Mark spoke to the manager yestreday & he has assured us we willl be getting it back & there will be a cheque in the post Monday so we shall see. He asked us not to leave bad reviews & I said as far as I am concerned if we get our money back the subject is closed & I really hope he manages to turn everything round & makes it a success.
    So what with getting that back & not having to pay the V.A.T increase makes it a win situation. Plus it works out about £600 cheaper!!!! I am just waiting for her to email me the T&C's & confirm the amount before we pay the deposit but we have it confirmed for the 8th April 2011, with them, the registrar, the DJ & the hairdresser, who used to do my hair when I used to do the wedding fayres when my friend worked in the bridal shop. I am so happy I found her as she is brilliant & she doesn't charge the earth!!!

    Hopefully thats all for now! If you have read this far, thank you for staying with it!! xxx

    It all looks fantastic and such a bargain too, excellent that they won't be adding the extra VAT, fingers crossed the cheque turns up soon xx
