Close up detail of Carl Joachim Hambro's effigy. Baron Hambro was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1807. He came to Britain in 1832 & established Hambros Bank with his father in London, in 1839. He purchased Milton Abbey in 1852 & was reputed to be a generous landlord, who provided a village hospital & school for his tenants. #miltonabbey #miltonabbas #dorset #churchesofinstagram #ecclesiastical #effigy #carljoachimhambro #baronhambro #denmark #hambrosbank #nineteenthcentury #history #dorsethistory @abbeyatmilton

Milton Abbey, Milton Abbas, Dorset.
The glorious Jesse window in the south transept of the Abbey. Commissioned by the Earl of Portarlington at a cost of ยฃ400 (approximately ยฃ38,000 in today's money) & designed by the great Augustus Pugin. Pugin visited the Abbey in September 1847 & he later noted that on 10th November 1848 'The glass has arrived and been placed in the Abbey Church' #miltonabbey #miltonabbas #dorset #churchesofinstagram #ecclesiastical #jessewindow #stainedglasswindow #stainedglass #pugin #augustuspugin #awnpugin #nineteenthcentury #earlofportarlington #history #dorsethistory @abbeyatmilton

Milton Abbey, Milton Abbas, Dorset.
A 15th Century painting, depicting King Athelstan granting Milton Abbey to the Abbot. The Latin inscription translates "King Athelstan, founder of this place"
Athelstan reigned from 925 to 939, the Grandson of Alfred the Great, he realised his illustrious ancestors dream of uniting the Kingdom by becoming the first King of all England. Politically astute, a courageous soldier & a man of great piety, amongst many other attributes, I believe Athelstan should not only be remembered as the first but also as one of England's greatest Monarchs. #miltonabbey #miltonabbey #dorset #athelstan #kingathelstan #tenthcentury #ecclesiastical #churchesofinstagram #history #englishhistory #anglosaxon #anglosaxonhistory @abbeyatmilton

Milton Abbey, Milton Abbas, Dorset.
The eastern facade of the Abbey was originally planned to extend outwards to include a further three chapels. The arches we see today on the exterior wall were originally intended to be inside the Abbey but the plans to extend were never carried out. #miltonabbey #miltonabbas #dorset #ecclesiastical #architecture #gothicarchitecture #medieval #churchesofinstagram #history #dorsethistory @abbeyatmilton

Milton Abbey, Milton Abbas, Dorset.
The West Front of the Abbey with Milton Abbey House to the left. The original church was founded during the 930's by King Athelstan. Legend has it, that whilst camping with his army on St Catherine's Hill overlooking the site of the present Abbey, he had a vision that he would defeat the Danes in battle & when the vision came true he founded a church on the site, in thanks for his great victory. The original structure burnt down in 1309, when the wooden spire was struck by lightning. Rebuilding began in 1332, on a much grander scale & continued throughout the 14th & 15th Centuries. The Abbey was suppressed during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539 & was purchased for ยฃ1000 by John Tregonwell, the King's agent responsible for overseeing the surrender of religious houses in the South & West of England. The Abbey remained in possession of the Tregonwell family until 1752, when it was purchased by Joseph Damer, MP for Bramber in Sussex & later 1st Earl of Dorchester. #miltonabbey #miltonabbas #dorset #kingathelstan #athelstan #tenthcentury #fourteenthcentury #fifteenthcentury #ecclesiastical #architecture #churchesofinstagram #dissolutionofthemonasteries #henryviii #tudor #tudorhistory #johntregonwell #josephdamer #history #dorsethistory @abbeyatmilton

Having catered @miltonabbeyweddings a couple of weeks ago - we were thrilled that a day off coincided with the Anglo Saxon/Viking weekend. A great chance to get close up with history. The group were happy to share their knowledge and answer all our questions. A great hands on experience. Chris tried on chainmail and I blew on a Vikings horn #dorsethistory #miltonabbey #thevikingsarecoming #saxonhistory #historicalreenactment #asklotsofquestions #dorsetlife #ancestors

The Abbey, Milton Abbey, Dorset.
A former Benedictine monastery in a secluded wooded valley. The abbey estates were sold off after the Reformation, the nave remained unbuilt after a fire destoyed the old church in the 14thc. In the 18thc. a gothic style mansion was built next to the church by William Chambers, James Wyatt designed the interiors and the grounds were landscaped by Lancelot Capability Brown. The house and grounds now belong to a private school, but the church is still open to visitors. On my visit a wedding was about to take place so i had a slightly rushed ten minutes or so to photograph the interior.

W E C A R E ! || Do you know why we set out to do what we do 10 years ago, and continue to do what we do? It's because we genuinely care and we want other wedding business owners to enjoy great success!
___

There's a wealth of talent in the Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset Wedding Industry (and of course further afield ๐Ÿ˜‰) and we couldn't be more proud, or more thrilled to play a part in showing Brides, Grooms and fellow suppliers, what's on offer across the region - you ALL deserve a platform to shout about your awesome products and services and we couldn't be happier to provide it!
___

Before becoming self-employed, I ran an organisation that was all about building businesses up, promoting them, showcasing them, supporting them and helping them to flourish and thrive. I loved seeing others succeed; seeing them secure new clients, bookings, sales and orders - it was all SO rewarding.
___

Here at Love That Wedding! we are truly passionate about helping others to achieve the success they so richly deserve - like us, we know so many business owners and suppliers who put their absolute heart and soul into EVERYTHING they do, working exceptionally long hours and going above and beyond to support themselves and their families.
___

When it comes to your experience of wedding show organisers, would you say that reading this is a refreshing change? I truly hope so! If you think I can help you in any way, please do get in touch - I'd love to hear from you.

Well there's a bit of impromptu "heart on sleeve" action on this super sunny Monday! Right lovelies ... back to work I go!! Catherine ๐Ÿ’‹
