Afternoon wedilicious readers… I came across a website today that I just LOVE love love. Seriously, it rocks out some awesomely good ideas for anyone spreading their wedding day festivities over a long weekend and looking for something a little alternative for their family and friends to do in the Cotswolds… I present to you Kooky Cotswold Tours….here’s the website blurb…
kook-y –adjective, kook-i-er, kook-i-est. Slang . of, like, or pertaining to a kook; eccentric, strange, or foolish
At Kooky Cotswold Tours we make sure you see the best of what´s on offer – plus a little bit of what you never knew existed. The Cotswolds are all about honey coloured villages, cream teas and grandiose manors, but what about the underbelly? The people behind the scenery? What is off the beaten track?
What you´ll get with Kooky Tours are all the bits in between that most people visiting the Cotswolds never get to see. The real life, the peculiar, the kooky. The unique people and places behind hedgerows and down hidden lanes that make this part of the world what it is.
We travel in smaller groups, which allows us to get a little deeper into the countryside to see the real charm of this part of England without upsetting the locals! Tours are relaxed and informal, yet professional and safe.
Yup. I’m a massive fan of the eccentric so this is right up my street! What better way for your guests to spend the pre/post-wedding days than an afternoon of wild swimming or the local past time of Aunt Sally (grown men throwing sticks at a dolly. seriously).
I also dig a wedding with a little unique style, and one of my fave ideas for wedding transport is…
Oh the fun you could have with running this theme all the way through. Perhaps picking up on the “daisy” theme from the chorus of the famous song:
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do,
I’m half crazy all for the love of you.
It won’t be a stylish marriage – I can’t afford a carriage,
But you’d look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two.
I am dying for a couple to chose this theme for 2011/12!! Adorable.
That’s all for today… hope it inspires you.
