One of our favourite places to go is the Upper House in Barlaston, and we were very fortunate to visit there a few days ago for a beautiful wedding which took place outside on the patio and under the pagoda. The weather was just perfect and the gardens, plants and flowers were at their best for the happy couple and all their guests.
We played for the ceremony and the reception before the wedding breakfast took place and we played outside, serenading and being accompanied by shrill birdsong.
The views over Staffordshire are stunning at the Upper House. It was built for Wedgewood's grandson and has been lovingly restored and decorated to a high standard throughout. However, I have not stayed there overnight so I cannot comment on the rooms but as it is a very popular wedding venue I am sure they would be wonderful.
Every time we visit we are always greeting with a welcoming smile and are looked after so kindly by the wonderful staff there. This of course, makes us keep coming back and visiting time and time again.
After our performance we adjourned to the drawing room, drank tea and had cake. Well, we had worked very hard indeed and we were at the Upper House, so why not?
