Pink Julep Retro - Finally Posting Photos From My Weekend in the Country

A few weeks ago, my husband and I packed up and headed to the West Midlands on a train for a wedding. Two friends we met when we lived in the Cayman Islands got married just outside of Birmingham, Enlgand, so we made the trip.

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know that we weren't travelling in the lap of luxury, but quite the opposite. It was however a beautiful place and we enjoyed the scenery and some time outdoors in the fresh air as much as we could while we were out of London!

We stayed here, at The Stone Manor. I wouldn't recommend it really...

The fountain looked pretty from far away...

Kidderminster is a small town and it looks as though the recession has had a toll on it. There's not a whole lot going on there, but we did manage to do a tiny bit of shopping.

This candy store, The Sweet Jar, was amazing!

I loved this photo case in our hotel. These old photos remind me of The Overlook from The Shining. I kept waiting for my husband to jump out with an axe screaming "Here's Johnny!"

The wedding we attended took place at the very beautiful Hagley Hall, a beautiful stately home that was created for the 1st Baron Lyttleton.

It's a gorgeous place for a wedding and the views are spectacular! The wedding was a lot of fun and absolutely gorgeous! We really had a great time reuniting with old friends and making a few new ones!

On the last day of our holiday, there was a wedding fair at our hotel and oh the things we saw there... it was like a tacky convention! I was most surprised by the A-Team van you can hire to drive you to your wedding, complete with drivers dressed in camouflage... Classy!

All in all, it was a lovely weekend! We laughed and rested and though there wasn't much to do, we still had a great time! Have you been anywhere interesting recently? Leave me a comment and tell me about it!
