A day of arduous research! (Well, maybe not exactly that arduous.)

Well, what better way to spend a typical Bank holiday Monday.  Preparation being the key, we spent a lovely day checking wedding venues we have not previously photographed weddings at, ready for two of next months' weddings.
  The tour took us to 2 fabulous churches, 2  completely different reception venues, covering 3 counties!
   The churches of Norbury, Shropshire & Gawsworth, Cheshire are both in absolutely stunning settings, each with traditional lych gates and beautiful ponds. Their welcoming uplifting interiors will ensure wonderful memories for everyone.
   Stepping over the border into N. Wales to check the hospitality the 21st century offers at the Holt Lodge, we felt compelled to test the lunch. Yummmmm.
   Struggling off our lunch seats, headed back over the border & traversed Cheshire to the ancient timbered barn at the Plough, nr Congleton. Just to keep things fair, further taste testing was necessary.
   We can confirm that both establishments came up trumps on the food front. Essential research (honest!), all part of the service! Diet starts again tomorrow......
