Love destined to be
Given Richmond was only recently described as the most romantic place in England’s North East, it surely merits close consideration as the place to hold your wedding. Why is it romantic? The marvellous medieval castle for one thing, dominating this market town, the River Swale and beyond it the lovely countryside of Swaledale. And for another, the huge cobbled market place by which the equally ancient church stands, and in which every night a curfew bell still rings at eight o’clock, though have no fears for your evening celebrations, in days long gone it was to signal the need to damp down fires, not for everyone to head for home.
