Hitch your wedding dress into your knickers


What bride wouldn’t want to hitch their wedding dress into their knickers, throw on some Hunter wellies and trudge through a muddy field to get married at this church?! Just me? Well picture it – it’s a beautiful little church, nothing else around, spectacular scenery, romantic, small and intimate. Marriage is a celebration of love, and what better way to celebrate than in a breath taking place that doesn’t require you spending a fortune on decorating it?! All its charm and uniqueness is within the building, the history and the surroundings themselves. That’s why it’d be special. You don’t have to pay to make it special, it already is.

It is Llanrhychwyn Church just outside Trefriw and on the way to Lake Geirionydd. It is said to be the oldest church in Wales and Prince Llywelyn is meant to have built it for his wife’s use.

ImageMy partner spotted it when he was out on a run one day and we stopped there when we went for a drive around last weekend.

The door was unlocked, merely held shut by a piece of stick. It was very quiet and I imagine that on a nice sunny day, it would be one of the most beautiful sights in the area. It was already beautiful in the miserable weather. Only problem is there’s nowhere really to leave cars – you’d either have to have a small wedding party or hike your way up there. But what’s wrong with doing that?!

We have already picked where we’d like to get married when we eventually do (it is another beautiful, quaint church), but I must admit I am starting to be drawn more to the wedding dress in knickers scenario. I’d feel like Elizabeth Bennet marching across the fields to go and visit her sister Jane at Pemberley.

We’ll just have to put on the wedding invitations “walking boots essential” xx
