Welsh Wedding at Craig y Nos Castle

Boy, did I sleep well this weekend! 

If you're curious as to why, the reasons are three-fold.

Firstly, I attended a wedding that lasted til the early hours. Secondly, the wedding was held deep in the Welsh countryside, where the air is fresh and fume-free. And, last but not least, I rested my weary head on these enormously plump pillows.
These heavenly pillows came courtesy of Craig y Nos Castle.

 
Set in the picturesque Brecon Beacons National Park, the views surrounding the castle showcase the natural beauty of Wales perfectly. Greenery and rolling hills as far as the eye can see. Quite a marked difference from the concrete structures of London town!
We're looking quite relaxed here but, truth be told, we got stuck in traffic driving up from London and had to hurriedly put our outfits on in the car park as we had no time to check in before the wedding ceremony started! 
But after that shaky start things just got better and better. The weather was superb and the breath-taking scenery basked in sunlight all day. To top it all off, our room was in the middle of an old courtyard beside the castle. We were gorging ourselves on beautiful sights at every turn!
    


And the happy couple were adding to the beautiful sights with some finishing touches of thieir own. It's all about the details! And don't they make all the difference.
Without a doubt, I had a day and night to remember at Craig y Nos Castle. I'll be taking away fond memories of a stunning backdrop and an incredibly comfy bed!
