Following on from last week and the boys preparations, it’s time for a bit of glitter and glamour from the girls! We had a gorgeous morning with treatments at the beautiful, cosy Cowshed spa, an amazing breakfast and much relaxing and chatting in the Playroom. I decided to do my own make up, but we did have the lovely Maddy from Melanie Giles there to groom us! It was such a special time – a pause between one part of your life and the next. As the afternoon progressed the wind really picked up outside and there was a lot of rain, which some brides may have found upsetting, but we had chosen a winter wedding for a reason and the view from the room across the blustery parkland outside was moody and magical. I wore the draped Scarlet dress from Temperley London with a fur wrap, also by Alice Temperley and Jimmy Choo Luna peep-toes. 

Have a lovely weekend – I’m planning a quiet one at home as I’m still recovering from jetlag after all the recent travels, but hope to be back to normal by next week!

This is the part of the day that I am so pleased to have pictures of as I was tucked away with my girls in the beautiful Babington Playroom {their master suite, not the Christian Grey version!}. Guests started to arrive and check into their rooms, while the boys got together for Patrick’s last lunch as an unmarried man; club sandwiches and Babington’s legendary Scotch Eggs! The special guest at the lunch was Patrick’s new godson, Indigo Blaise, who at only three weeks old really was the youngest member of the group! Next week I’ll give you a peek inside the beautiful Playroom to see what we were up to while the boys were relaxing with Peronis…

Have a lovely weekend.

Since we got married last November I have been totally useless at sorting our wedding pictures…family and friends have been asking and asking, so finally I have got around to selecting our favourites to share. I know that Spring is finally with us in the UK and winter now feels like a {slightly} distant memory, but for today and the next few Fridays let me take you back to November last year; stormy winds, torrential rain and our lovely wedding at Babington

First up are the pictures that set the scene – most of these were taken by Patrick, with a few thrown in by the lovely Chloe from Caught The Light, who photographed our day. From next week onwards all the images will be hers, but although he finally agreed to put his carmera down for the ceremony, it was impossible to stop Patrick at least snapping some of the surroundings and preparations at the house! I think the images speak for themselves, it was the most stunning setting and absolutely perfect for our cosy Winter wedding.

Enjoy the photos and have a lovely weekend wherever you are. We’re in Malaysia for another wedding, which couldn’t be more different from ours…40 degree tropical heat and cockatils on the beach!

This week’s home away from home is in my view the original one; the inspiration for other hotels across the country start recreating the feel of being in a lovely home (where you don’t have to do the washing up and the cleaning!),  instead of the traditional and slightly stuffy hotel environment that we were accustomed to in the past. P and I were lucky enough to visit Babington House in Somerset last week after having it on our wish list of places to visit to a number of years and are pleased to say that it didn’t disappoint. 

The house and setting are both stunning, the atmosphere is the perfect blend of relaxed yet decadent, the rooms out of this world and the bathrooms…all I can say it that I was in heaven…Cowshed product heaven! I would recommend it to anyone looking to treat themselves to a night away; a night of pure relaxation and indulgence. Everything from the spa, sauna, cinema, restaurant, bar, indoor and outdoor pool (complete with people lounging with cocktails in the sun thanks to the recent good weather spell!), were perfect and we can’t wait to visit again. Prices for lastminute Babington start at £215 per night and for more information and full pricing details go to their website.
