Sculthorpe Mill :-
The Sculthorpe Mill is a charming 18th century mill surrounded by Norfolk countryside set in beautiful gardens with the cascading River Wensum viewed from every window. Six newly refurbished en-suite guestrooms all with river views, a non smoking restaurant and cosy bar areas complete the picture.
WHY IT BECAME "BAD LUCK" FOR THE GROOM TO SEE BRIDE BEFORE THE CEREMONY
Until relatively recently, brides were considered the property of their father. Their futures and husbands were arranged without their consent. The marriage of an unattractive woman was often arranged with a prospective groom from another town without either of them having ever seen their prospective spouse. In more than one instance, when the groom saw his future wife, usually dressed in white, for the first time on the day of the wedding, he changed his mind and left the bride at the altar. To prevent this from happening, it became "bad luck" for the groom to see the bride on the day of the wedding prior to the ceremony.
