This weekend it was all about me (what's new?!). With just under 7weeks to go some of the girlies I went to college with had decided I should have a bit of a pamper & a relax before it goes crazy. Also seeing as my real Hen Party isn't until after the wedding they decided to throw me a mini Hen Party - otherwise now known as a Chick Party! Liz found a really great deal for £70 each that allowed us full use of the pool & gym, 2 treatments & a 2 course lunch click here for more info.
Karen, Mum, Me, Liz & BeckyIt was originally supposed to be me plus 4 of my gals but poor Laura was ill so mum got the chance to have a bit of a pamper too which was a welcome treat!
We went to Stapleford Park in Leicestershire & it was stunning (we had a sneaky peak in one room that was getting ready for a wedding later that day & wow! Just think loads of chandeliers, crisp white table linen & a light up dancefloor!)
The pool, Spa & Pavilion were all in different parts of the grounds & thankfully it wasn't raining so we got to make full use of the gardens & pathways. Though I was a bit disappointed it didn't rain cos we'd been told if it did we could be driven around in golf buggies!
On the lawns outside the main house they had loads of games so we stopped off at the giant chess board before we 'played' (I use this term lightly!) croquet!
It was so much fun & a great excuse to spend time with everyone. Weddings really do bring out the best parties & get togethers!
