New showcase website for Hodsock Priory

A visually stunning website (www.hodsockpriory.com) has been launched enabling couples to explore the interior and exterior of luxury wedding venue and historic house, Hodsock Priory. The family home of George Buchanan, ninth generation resident and owner, Hodsock underwent a £1.5million restoration project and now hosts romantic, fun and relaxed weddings on an exclusive use basis. The mobile-responsive site has been developed to showcase the grandeur of the house and formal gardens.

The site offers inspiration about holding a wedding or event at rural Hodsock Priory, located on the North Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire border. A range of all-inclusive wedding packages make planning a wedding even easier for the newly engaged.

George Buchanan says: “Hodsock Priory is our pride and joy – so we’re delighted to open the doors online to the Best Wedding Venue in Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Derbyshire (I Do Magazine 2015) with the launch of our new mobile-responsive website. Now we can really show you the Secluded Splendours of Hodsock.”

Hodsock Priory is licensed for civil marriage ceremonies and caters for wedding receptions and events of various types and sizes. Bridal accommodation is provided within the main 19th century house and guests can stay onsite at The Courtyard, Hodsock’s five star B&B.

“Whether it’s a cheeky search in your lunch break on your mobile, or relaxing at home on your tablet, you can now explore the grand reception rooms, sumptuous bedrooms and gardens at Hodsock like never before. We’re able to show you the best of 500 weddings we’ve had the privilege of hosting – it’s the very best wedding venue photography you’ll find anywhere. As a family living at Hodsock who’ve offered our home as a wedding venue for 10 years now, we’re proud to show you what we do with a window to our world. We invite you to fall in love with this wonderful place.” Adds George.

George Buchanan holds the legacy of 250 years of Buchanan’s at Hodsock Priory in his hands. The Buchanan family are celebrating their 250th year of residency at Hodsock. The beautiful listed house was signed over to George’s ancestor, William Mellish, on 25 March 1765. Together with his wife Katharine, George brings up his two sons and two daughters in the servant’s quarters of the house.

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings. Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
