Warwick castle day out

Visit Britain’s Ultimate Castle!

Dating back to 914, Warwick Castle has stood as an impressive Mediaveal Fortress on the banks of the river Avon for the last 1100 years. Attacked in 1264, besieged in 1642 and damaged by fire in 1871, the castle has survived the changing fortunes of history and remains one of the most well-preserved Mediaveal castles in the UK. Named recently as one of the richest families in British history, the Earl of Warwick had lots of money and knew how to spend it! As wars ceased, the Earl enjoyed a lavish lifestyle, the results of which can be seen in the elegant 17th Century Great Hall and State Rooms, home to the castle’s most prized possessions.

A visit to the castle also takes you through the beauty of the landscaped Capability Brown gardens, down into the mediaeval vaults and into the private residence of the Earl where you can discover the reality about the lives of the Earl, his family and their servants. For those with stamina, you can even climb to the top of our towers and ramparts – still open to the public after 1100 years and offering breath-taking views of the English countryside.

A visit to the castle wouldn’t be complete without watching the jousting tournament (summer only), the magnificent Birds of Prey, or the world’s largest trebuchet launching a fireball – an impressive sight to behold!

Located only 15 minutes from Stratford-upon-Avon, a visit to Warwick Castle is a must on any visit to Shakespeare’s England.

There is plenty to do with a massive children adventure park and beautiful fun mazes,shops and cafe.

1) Give notice =£60

2) Pay for register office pick one with lovely surroundings, sure makes perfect pictures, also book in the week is cheaper than the weekend however mine was the weekend=£150

3) Decide on colour theme, or a theme for the wedding and party, my colour was red for the cermoney, then the evening was fancy dress and disco of any era so kind of retro.

4) There are many balls you can hire out for free these days so may call around and see what can be done!

5) Wedding car we all would love a lovely car HOWEVER one of your  friends or family must have a lovely car that you can use is it really worth spending £300 on a car hire, any car can have an bit of bow on it! We used my mums land Rover!

6)catering and food, we asked friends to do our wedding breakfast we had 3 course meal for 30 people we had prawn salad for starter and need roast and cheesecake for after with was £150, if you want to keep food cost down perhaps get married late afternoon so no need for a wedding breakfast it so your own spread such as a finger buffet and get food from wholesalers, Iceland,  or find deals on at the supermarket.

7) most bars these days are free for set up cost and only make money by drinks sold, so phone local pubs see what they can offer

8)Wedding dress, I got mine from ebay for £50 and loved mine and it is a designer dress, shop around

9) flowers are so easy to make these days! Oaises and some Pretty flowers is all you need, so simple to make and same for button holes it cost you half the price! My flowers cost me £4!

10) hair, either you could do your own hair, or contact the collage and ask about wedding hair this could be free sometimes!  My hair was done by a mobile hairdresser costing £30

11) make up and nails,  do your own make up or ask sisters or friends to help you do make up runs, nails I brought some groom boots,£6

12) because my wedding theme was retro I went to Carboot sales and online selling pages and even charity shops to find old records to put on the walls, glow sticks from poundland, larva lamps an driver disco balls all came from b&m, we made our own buntings and all decorations and sweet table was all made from scratch we spent £60 on decorations

image

13) photos were taken by a friend’s dad who had a decent camera and did the honour of taking pictures of our day for free we had over 500 picture put on to a USB, so if you know anyone with a decent camera ask or again contact the collages as students are always looking to add to portfolio

14) wedding cake I was lucky a friend’s sister is a cake maker and made our lovely 3 tire cake for £30 but if your not so lucky see if you can hire a cake stand and look in asda and Tesco as they do lovely wedding cake form £12

15) DJs can be quite cheap these days or what’s wrong with a CD player and make a CD with all songs you like to play, lights we hired the lights with just a deposit and we received that back the next day when took lights back,

16) I didn’t have any bridesmaid because I couldn’t afford to buy dresses so wouldn’t be fair!

17) rings are stainless steal from Hong Kong they have half a heart on them with love written on these were £5.

18) invites were made by hand with print out from the internet and some card for very crafty.

19) I wore flat wedding shoes as I’m very tall my wedding shoes were £3 from primark.

20) the groom wore a suit that was in the cubard.

Any questions you would like to ask feel free!  My wedding cost £490 to the penny so if you think you need to spend thousands then your mad I don’t think my wedding was at all tacky, the day fly’s by so quick spending that amount of money on a day that’s over in a flash. Main thing about your day is enjoy them moments xx
