… she’s ready to rekindle romance just when we need it, in the heart of chilly January. With Christmas long gone and Spring still in the future – Santes Dwynwen reminds us that we still have our true love to keep us warm.
But who was Santes Dwynwen? She was a beautiful fifth century princess from the Brecon Beacons, who having been denied her true love, Maelon, prayed to forget him. An angel gave Dwynwen a potion to forget and turned Maelon to ice! Dwynwen was given three wishes, with the first she thawed her true love, with the second asked that true lovers would achieve their dreams and with her third – that she herself would never marry. Her wishes were granted and in thanks Dwynwen founded a convent off the coast of North Wales.
We Propose Rhossili – could wild and windswept Rhossili, be our most romantic spot? It’s certainly a popular spot to pop the question and as this is a leap year – why wait for 29th February? St Dwynwen would approve!
