Shoot organiser and hair stylist on the day, Lisa Curtis had a vision to create a Celtic styled shoot in the historical setting of Layer Marney Tower. She explains, “My inspiration came from Galadriel in Lord of the Rings, from the loosely waved hairstyle to the floaty sleeved dress and draped cape. A lot of brides are having themes for their wedding day, I wanted to inspire those brides who would opt for a castle or historical setting by creating a medieval feel. I opted for the staircase greenery, candles and the soft hues of the bouquet to deliver a dramatic feel to this shoot.”

Hedingham Castle, one of the oldest and best-preserved Norman keeps in Britain, is excited to announce the opening of its new attraction, The Royal Chamber. Visitors can now step back in time and experience the luxurious lifestyle of the medieval English royalty at the castle, with all the conveniences of 21st century living.

Located on the top floor of the 900-year-old Norman Keep, which would have originally been the dormitory floor, The Royal Chamber features a grand four-poster bed, exquisite tapestries, exceptional views and elegant furnishings in the style that would have been used by the lords and ladies of the castle. Modern additions have also been included for the comfort of guests, such as a large bath big enough for two and a cleverly hidden widescreen TV that can be watched from the comfort of the bed.

The bed itself is inspired by the Great Bed of Ware, one of the V&A's greatest treasures and famously over three metres wide – the only known example of a bed of this size. Hedingham Castle have collaborated with luxury bedding brand, And So To Bed, to deliver an exceptionally comfortable sleeping experience for guests. Featuring a super king Vispring Pure Luxe Hybrid mattress and 400-thread count Palazzo bedding, a peaceful night's sleep is virtually guaranteed.

The Royal Chamber is ideal for couples seeking a romantic getaway or for history buffs looking to immerse themselves in the castle's rich heritage. The room can be booked as a honeymoon retreat for the venue's wedding couples, as well as being available to book by the public on a Bed & Breakfast or Dinner, Bed & Breakfast basis. Champagne, chocolates and a continental breakfast for two are provided as standard with every booking, and, if also dining, your meal is enjoyed in the form of a five-course tasting menu, served in the breathtaking Banqueting Hall, quite a setting for an intimate dinner for two!
