Escape to the New Forest for some pre-wedding pampering at luxury Hampshire venue Careys Manor & SenSpa in Brockenhurst and indulge in some romantic 'our time' with their new Bride- and Groom-to-be package.
Designed to deliver a spot of indulgent pampering and delicious dining before tying the knot, it gives couples the chance to relax and enjoy holistic treatments inspired by ancient Eastern rituals. The romantic getaway starts at the 18th-century manor's award-winning SenSpa. Newlyweds-to-be can take advantage of all the facilities at the state-of-the-art Thai spa including hydrotherapy pools, a crystal steam room, ice room and experience showers before enjoying a Rhassoul Mud Treatment – an age-old remedy designed to improve skin texture and draw out impurities for the perfect pre-wedding glow.
Revived and restored, head to the Thai-Temple Studio for a soothing Mind and Body class, created to rebalance the soul and calm any pre-wedding jitters. Refuel afterwards with a two-course lunch at The Zen Garden, an authentic Thai restaurant offering a variety of delicious dishes, before whiling away the rest of the afternoon in the spa. There's a 14-metre ozone-treated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and herbal sauna to enjoy too before before finishing the day with a Time for Two Massage, a luxurious couple's treatment using traditional Swedish massage techniques to ease tired and strained muscles and induce deep relaxation.
Fully rejuvenated, retreat to a picture-perfect bedroom where a bottle of Champagne awaits and once you've toasted your upcoming nuptials, head to either the modern British brasserie Cambium or indulge in regional French dining at Le Blaireau for a romantic dinner for two. Round off the experience the next day with a leisurely breakfast in bed with the paper.
Couples booking the Bride- and Groom-to-be package can also arrange an appointment with the hotel's own wedding coordinator to help plan their dream wedding. Whether an intimate affair for 60 guests or larger celebration for up to 100, Careys Manor offers a variety of bespoke packages covering everything from a festival-style big day to an elegant traditional affair.
To see for yourself what's on offer for newlyweds-to-be, the venue will be hosting a Wedding Open Day on Sunday 12th July, 2020.
