Surprise surprise!

We have recently had some surprises sprung..... one by a bride who organised for her husband-to-be to arrive by helicopter - there was a reception committee but he was also met by Janet who gave him a lift to reception in her Bentley!  Then we had a groom who had organised a wonderful surprise for Sunday morning - yes a brand new car for his new wife!!

Wedding fever.....

August has been a whirlwind of weddings.  They have all been beautiful with some wonderful ideas that make each one unique to the happy couple.  Here are just a few images of some of our August weddings.....

@Tour of Britain

The Tour de France may be headline news at the moment but here at Gibbon Bridge we are getting excited about the #Aviva Tour of Britain coming to the Ribble Valley & Pendle in September.  Stage 2 of the @Tour of Britain starts in Clitheroe on Monday 7th September and goes through Whalley, Longridge and then Chipping and right past our front door on its way up to Slaidburn.  We think the pinch point through Chipping, when they turn right from Windy Street on to Green Lane might be quite an exciting place to watch the race, or perhaps further down the road closer to us where there is quite a long straight stretch.  Take a look at the official Tour website and see what you think.
We have a special two night stay available - arriving on the Sunday and it includes dinner, bed & breakfast for two nights and a picnic for race day.  You could bring your own bike and watch from several different view points.

We are busy putting together our latest Newsletter for the Autumn and Christmas.  We have all sorts of events coming up but we are particularly excited about our Charity Lunch with @Nigel Barden from #Simon Mayo's Drive Time Show.  Nigel is the resident chef who is on the show every #Foodie Thursday and he always brings in a dish for Simon and the team to try.  He is lots of fun and seems to have a wealth of knowledge not only about cooking but food and foodie products in general.  The Charity being supported is #Hospitality Action, which supports individuals from the Hospitality Industry who are going through difficult times.  The cost of the tickets is £40 and includes a three course lunch and a glass of wine.  Nigel will be instrumental in putting the menu together with Janet and Gary our Head Chef and will be speaking after the lunch.  Put the date in your diary and give us a call to book your tickets!  TUESDAY 29th SEPTEMBER 2015 12 for 12.30pm

A Country Wedding...

Our bride on Saturday really had the day sussed with her hair in a fabulous plat and a gorgeous figure hugging dress so the breeze did not put a hair or a dress out of place!  The scene was also set for a #country wedding with the cows enjoying the sunshine too......

One of last weekend's #weddings definitely had a farming theme... a great idea for the name cards and can you guess what sort of farming they do??
