Venue History: The Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel was 36 years old as a business in March 2010. Throughout the whole of this time it has been in the continuous ownership of Peter and Jan Clarke since itís purchase as a country house in 1973. The original house was built in 1868 for a Richard Satchell whose occupation on the conveyance is given as a draper. The grounds to the house included the field next door in which the hotel extension now lies (purchased back in 1991).

SOMETHING "OLD", "NEW", "BORROWED", AND "BLUE"
The tradition of carrying one or more items that are "old", "new", "borrowed" and "blue" also comes from English. There is an old English rhyme describing the practice which also mentions a sixpence in the brides shoe. Something old, signifying continuity, could be a piece of lace, jewelry, or a grandmother's handkerchief. Something new, signifying optimism in the future, could be an article of clothing or the wedding rings. Something borrowed, signifying future happiness, could be handkerchief from a happily married relative or friend. Something blue, signifying modesty, fidelity and love, comes from early Jewish history. In early Biblical times, blue not white symbolized purity. Both the bride and groom usually wore a band of blue material around the bottom of their wedding attire, hence the tradition of "something blue". Originally the sixpence was presented to the bride by her future husband as a token of his love. Today, very often, it is the bride's father who places a coin in the brides shoe prior to leaving home for the church.
