Last week we welcomed our lovely competition winner Shoana and her husband Harry to the hotel, where were finally able to present her with the very beautiful Diamond Heaven halo ring.

The prize was nothing less than a beautiful 1ct Halo Diamond ring from Diamond Heaven worth over £3,500, as well as a luxury stay here at Rowton Castle in our timeless four poster bedroom and an exquisite three course meal in our gourmet Cedar Restaurant.

Set in the gorgeous Shropshire countryside right next to Shrewsbury and recently voted Trip Advisors’ 6# Castle Hotel in the world, needless to say, we found a massive response to our giveaway with over 3,000 people entering the competition.

Spring... the perfect season for a wedding. 

One of the most beautiful times to get married, the fresh dewy days bring brightness and hope as the new season begins.

A stunning time of year to marry, with it the season brings an abundance of styling options; spring weddings can be soft, muted and romantic with oh-so-pretty pastels in abundance through to the vibrant brights of bold floral hues of the season.

This morning we are feeling inspired, let us share with you some of our favourite springtime weddings and wedding looks.

Love Stories

Love Stories - Rowton Castle Blog - summary.jpg

In a recent post discussed proposals, and how nerve racking they could sometimes be; but we forget that the proposal is just a defining moment in a whole love story.

The story starts with once upon a time, as all good stories do. There's a spark, which may flare into a blaze quite quickly, or smoulder quietly like an ember. It begins before, and will end long after the proposal. We hope it never ends at all...a happily ever after.

The sad thing about the love story in the real world is that they stay in a private place between two people, and are hardly ever told.

This year, there's much ado about the two world wars, and along with a refinement of history, a great many personal stories are being unearthed. Photograph albums, medals and letters are being rediscovered, and a whole world of love, loss, and reunion now lies tipped out from old chocolate boxes and scattered on carpets across the land.

The Proposal

The Proposal - Rowton Castle Blog - Summary.jpg

Here's something we have never considered;-

Did you know that for most men, the biggest moment of their lives is the proposal? The wedding day, he thought, was the big event for a woman, but for a man, the whole magnitude of it was in the proposal.

And so gentlemen, now you're reading the Rowton Castle blog, is contemplating your wedding only the second most important event? 

How did you do it? Did you fall on one knee and utter the time old words? Or was it a quiet mumble while unloading the shopping? If it's the second, better do it again over an intimate dinner. People will ask about it, and you wouldn't want it to be remembered as a scrabble over the carrier bags.
