Yesterday,we payed a visit to Wentworth Walled Garden Centre,which covers a huge area,with so many things to see,and had a lovely lunch.and later on,we strolled into the pretty village ,and then to wait at the Church to see a special Wedding…:o)
This is where our Goy friend ,Wildrose and her family,were attending the Wedding of one of her sons,yesterday ..

We were invited to go along if possible,to meet Chris for the first time,and to watch the Wedding party arrive..How could we refuse? It is less than an hour away from us,so we were delighted to make a day of it..

In the tiny village of Wentworth,which consists of a main street,this is the aptly named Paradise Square…
.so well tended and a joy to see..

Next on to the beautiful old Church to await the arrival of Chris and her lovely Family..All looking equally wonderful in their Wedding outfits,and it seemed we had known each other for ages,as we met for the first time..We were able to spend at least 30 minutes together,before the beautiful Bride arrived,and then said our goodbyes..It was so kind to be invited to share their special day.and glad to say,,Chris was feeling so much better,after the sad loss of her mum last week..
I’m not including any photo’s taken of the Wedding party,as I’m sure Chris will want to do that when she gets back from attending her Mum’s funeral.. She won’t have WiFi ,so I thought I would just let you know how happy she was yesterday..:o)

A nice walk back to the Garden centre,and a nice cream scone and a cuppa..:o).and a couple of views of part of the grounds..


Such a lovely day,and time spent with another Goy friend,albeit only a short time,is yet another one of my special memories….:o)

Wow! So lovely to see this. Oliveoil...my Mum...was born here! I've been a few times, but never to the GC or the Stately Home. That's so lovely that they were married in the Church. I have been in the church I think. I have a vague memory of being in there with Mum many years ago, but perhaps that was in a dream..not sure. We used to go on Boxing Day for a walk around the Village, and there were always Morris Dancers outside the Pub! So lovely of you to share this Sandra. Thank you. :))))))

How lovely it brought back some family memories for you,Karen..by coincidence,I've just left a comment on your mums latest blog :o) I didn't take a photo of the Church,as I said in this blog,I wouldn't want to take anything away from Chris,as I'm sure she will have some lovely photo's to show us,when she feels up to it. Both our OH's took some of Chris and I together too..
The GC has grown tremendously,and sadly,you now have to pay to go round those areas I posted photo's of.and they also have other things you have to pay for now,but they do have a lovely Restaurant,and some well cared for plants :o) I bought two mini trailing Surfinias from the sales area ..as you do :o)Thank you for adding this to your Faves:o) x

It was a lovely day,Amy,and Chris was so nice too..The Wedding certainly lifted her spirits :o)I did a daft thing yesterday,and added something on to her last blog,not realising no one would add to it or read it.. Duh! I forgot she had told me she wouldn't have WiFi..It was all about yesterday...looks like the Dunces corner again for me :o) x

Don't worry Sandra It will all come out in the wash as they say , I'm just glad you all had a good day xx

The gardens are impeccable. Somebody has obviously put much time and effort into it. I'm glad you got to share in Wildrose's special day. It must have meant so much.

13 Jul, 2015

 

Lovely pictures Bloomer and so pleased you had a such a pleasant meeting with Chris, good to know she was in good spirits, what a lovely venue for her son's big day.
Thank you for sharing your lovely outing :o)

14 Jul, 2015

 

Wow this is so so pretty to see and a lovely blog to .

I to have added to favourites and also nominated for show gardens.

Now I wonder is there are any campsites to take ruby on a visit to.

Must go check ,we are going to Chatsworth in September.

14 Jul, 2015

 

What can I add to the comments Sandra? I'll just agree with all of them, a lovely blog. :o)

14 Jul, 2015

 

What a lovely day! Not only meeting even more GoY friends, and sharing their special day, but Paradise Square as well. What more could you ask? I'm glad Chris was able to enjoy the day too, despite the resent loss of her mum. :))

14 Jul, 2015

 

Wentworth looks a very pretty place, the cottages and gardens are very picture post card pretty. So pleased it was a nice day for the wedding, It was sad to hear about Chris's Mum passing away but glad Chris was able to enjoy the wedding. I will look forward to seeing the wedding pictures when Chris puts them on, you are doing well meeting up with another member of Goy Sandra keep it up!!

14 Jul, 2015

 

What a pretty place, so well cared for. Will look forward to wedding photos soon. So pleased to hear that the day went well for Chris and her family. Love the name Paradise Square too, very apt :)

14 Jul, 2015

 

Thank you all for your lovely comments,and I'm sure Chris will read them all when she gets back home..I'm not sure when that will be,but we can all look forward to reliving the Wedding day with her,through her photo's..I don't think there is a better site anywhere,than Goy for being there for one another through good and sad times..and even Chris's Husband said as much too,as he knows how much you have all supported Chris this past week...xxx

I'm pleased you got to meet Chris, Sandra and what a beautiful place it is ! She is such a lovely person, isn't she !
I can't believe that she actually sent me a card for my birthday with all this going on ! I'm hoping I get to meet her too one day !
I must just add, that when I went on this blog, I saw a few more I hadn't been notified about, so am sorry that I hadn't replied to any of them ! I only usually look at my " favourites" when notified as don't have the time in the summer to do more than this ! I will catch up on your news now ! xx

15 Jul, 2015

 

You can easily catch up,when you have the time Rose,I do the same sometimes..best to save them for a rainy day :o) ..
It really was lovely to meet up with Chris and her family..just wish we could have spent more time together..I also received a card from her a few weeks ago, not for a special event,but it was very much appreciated at the time..,and so thoughtful..One of these days,we might get together again with you and Rick,but a bit too far for Chris to come for a coffee and a natter :o) xx

15 Jul, 2015

 

Never say never Sandra ! One of these days maybe ! Wouldn't it be great to all get together ! xx

16 Jul, 2015

 

We will have to persuade her to move to Yorkshire :o) x

16 Jul, 2015

 

Oh I would move back there any day. Left the village when I was 14 and missed it terribly, the stone cottages and the lovely park, so beautiful and so nice to see again. I too go to the garden centre occasionally.It used to be a cricket field at the top and we held our sports day on the car park area, which used to be grass. lol ahhhhh the memories. lovely blog.

16 Jul, 2015

 

I'm so glad it brought back happy memories for you Barbara..It's nice to visit the GC now and then,but it isn't very often,as we have lots nearer home..I couldn't believe how huge the car park is now,and I guess it was all lovely Countryside at one time,like most places..we did enjoy the short cut walk through to the Church,a,which was lovely..and everyone we passed said hello. A wonderful day all round,:o)

16 Jul, 2015

 

Beautiful place.

22 Jul, 2015

 

Thank you Siris,,we have lots of similar small villages in Yorkshire..most are as equally well kept.

22 Jul, 2015

 

Bloomer thank you so much for this very special blog.

I am home again now and to read all the lovely comments on here has made me feel so happy to be part of the 'GoY family!'

It was wonderful to actually meet Bloomer and her husband and it really did 'make my day!' If it hadn't been the wedding I would have loved to head off to the garden centre with them as we had so much to chat about and the garden centre sounded so tempting!

It was all so lovely.

22 Jul, 2015

 

Welcome home,Chris,and thank you for your nice comment..I think we are all glad to see you again,and are looking forward to seeing the Wedding photo's,when you have time..I guess the garden calls,so you will have plenty to keep you occupied..:o) xx

23 Jul, 2015

 

The garden calls for Alan, Monty and anyone else who knows what they are doing!!

We think a deer has been munching away at all things sweet and tempting including sweet peas and roses! Wish it would acquire a taste for nettles and bindweed!

23 Jul, 2015

 

Oh dear,what a shame..I noticed you had asked about it on Questions..seems it could have been a number of animals..they must have realised they would be safe to enter your garden..
