Wedding bells ring out at Wordsworth House

30 Aug
Natalie and Ian, our first bride and groom

Special day: Natalie and Ian, our first bride and groom, showered with confetti

We’ve just made a bit of history! Last Friday, we hosted the first-ever wedding at Wordsworth House since it was built in 1690 – 322 years ago.

Natalie, the bride, is the step-daughter of my friend Alex, the house’s Interpretation and Communications Manager.

The day went beautifully and Natalie and her new husband Ian tell me it was everything they had hoped it would be. The ceremony was in our elegant dining room, where the Wordsworth family once ate, and the happy couple had their photos taken in my lovely garden.

It was made extra special by the fact that Natalie and Ian were married by our retail assistant Richard, who has just qualified as a registrar, and the bride and bridesmaids’ make-up was the handiwork of my special friend, costumed servant Sophia, who also works as a make-up artist.
