If you had to ask us to pick our favourite season here at Glenfall you would get a different answer from each team member - and some of us can't even choose a favourite - we love them all.
Each season brings with it so many different aspects and Glenfall House lends itself to them all beautifully. In Winter the fires are lit and Glenfall becomes a cozy haven in which to look out onto the snow fallen grounds. Whilst in Summer our gardens are alive with blooms and the grounds themselves host all the action. Autumn is crisp & fresh with glorious sunsets to enjoy around the fire pits and well Spring, we will let our Wisteria Walk explain why Spring is a strong favourite for many!
So without actually being able to pick ourselves, we have collated lots of lovely seasonal inspiration to help you decide. Click on the season above to filter and discover our monthly galleries. Or browse through the blog posts below for real weddings and helpful inspiration.
