Shrewsbury and North Wales- wedding and Romantic occasion ideas.

Shrewsbury was my birthplace, but I had never actually been there. I needed to get away and relax a bit, open my mind and acquire some new experiences, so I booked a break to Shrewsbury and Wales as I think this country is amazing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       I am always on the look out for Personal Assistant ideas for Romantic occasions to share with my readers or for a small price I could do all the sourcing for the services you require to make your romantic dream a reality.

First of all, Shrewsbury is an idyllic place for Romance, disregard the fact that I was born there and that I could be bias. Shrewsbury is a beautiful, very friendly place and extremely pleasant.

Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire, the town has the river Severn flowing through with several access bridges around the town centre and beyond, unfortunately it does suffer from floods but that does not hinder it’s splendour and pride. It has medieval history, a castle, it was also an important commercial trade in the rest of Britain and in Europe due to it’s wool in the Middle ages… Many homes were destroyed in the wars however, Shrewsbury has restored it’s beauty and has become rather iconic with it’s romantic cobbled streets and amazing scenery. An interesting fact is that it is the birth place of Charles Darwin and many other well known characters that I am utterly proud to read about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury, quaint, Shropshire

I then drove to North Wales, WOW, mother nature at it’s best, we rented a cottage from Sykes cottages which was perfect and kept to a high standard in Porthmadog, that town has a little harbour, a steam rail station and easy access to most places via roads. There a many villages and towns with extraordinary, Romantic walks, lovely for picnics, photos, marvellous restaurants serving delectable food and some sensational hotels and places to get married in.

Portmeirion is an idyllic day out, it is actually the village where many films, soaps and the 1960’s tv series “The prisoner” was filmed in, it is now owned by a charity which charge admittance fees to help maintain the grade 1 and grade 2 listed buildings plus the mass of beautiful woodland and desirable walks there, plus the many artifacts you will find hidden amongst the beautiful greenery there is there.

The hotel, built in 1850, has been extended, restored and made a listed Grade 2 building, originally a mansion, it was turned into a hotel where a fabulous wedding can take place.
