Somerley House :-
The spectacular house sits majestically above hundreds of acres of parkland through which the River Avon wends its way. While providing breathtaking rooms, Somerley still retains all the warmth and friendliness of a family home. With a license for Civil Ceremonies, the house provides a magical setting for every bride's dream wedding.
This term has many origins from different cultures. In Anglo-Saxon times, the groom had the help of "bridesmen" or "brideknights" to help him capture and/or escort his bride. Later they would make sure that the bride got to the church and to the groom's home afterwards. The women who accompanied and assisted the bride were called "bridesmaids" or "brideswomen".
