photoblog image A Stoke Rochford Weekend 4/5

A Stoke Rochford Weekend 4/5

The Grand Hall at Stoke Rochford is entered from the side entrance, which is the one now used, and is approached through an arcade positioned like a medieval screens passage. There is a fine grey stone chimney piece in the Dietterlinesque manner - typical Burn. The ceiling is in square panels with strapwork cartouches. Beyond the arcade the ceiling is vaulted. There is also a beautiful Conservatory/Orangery just off of the Library and as you can see it is set out for the celebration of civil weddings, in deed there was one on each of the two days we were there.

Most impressive, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Very comfortable indeed Ray.
I do like the conservatory, Brian, but that carpet is not exactly calming...smile
Brian Walbey: I guess the carpet matches the furniture but it is a bit overpowering.

As soon as I saw the image top left, I was thinking of it as a wedding venue. When I used to have to go to conferences, I dreaded chairs such as those; they are so uncomfortable and too close together. Those lovely leather chairs are me; I can just imagine taking a nightcap there before heading off to bed.

I'm staying in a proper hotel next week; not done that for years.
Brian Walbey: Certainly a nice place to hold a wedding, comfy chairs or not. Don't forget proper hotels require long trousers at meal times smile
I wonder when the first wedding in space will take place Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a possibility I suppose, one day.

Sumptuous interiors, quite a spread of Chesterfields!
Brian Walbey: All very nice isn't it.
Nice set of pics, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
I was expecting many more orange trees in the orangery. A beautiful couple of rooms, Brian.
Brian Walbey: No doubt in years gone by it was full of Oranges, now it is used for weddings.
i like the rich red upholstery seen in the right couple of shots, Brian. the wood panels appear nice too.
Brian Walbey: Quite splendid isn't it.
A luxury wedding venue I shudder to think what it costs!
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a posh sort of place for a wedding as was the place where our Caroline got married, however she and Kev insisted on paying most of it themselves so both sets of parents made suitable donations etc.
What a beautiful, rich interior!
Brian Walbey: Yes it's a lovely building inside.
