A bow- and garland-festooned carriage holding up to eight people will take a trip down our wooded Lover’s Lane, then cross Blithewold’s Great Lawn. Families will be photographed in the sleigh before the ride begins. The photos can be used for holiday greeting cards or to frame and cherish for years to come! Allan Millora Photography will provide each family with a digital image to keep, or offer your choice of a selected photo package.
