1. On their 28th wedding anniversary a couple will have been married for 10,220 days or 245,280 hours or 14,716,800 minutes, which is over 883 million seconds.
2. The modern theme for a 28th anniversary is the orchid.
3. 28 is the new official number of hotels in the Hallmark Hotels portfolio located across the UK, following the addition of 8 new hotels to the group.
In keeping with the theme of 28, and to celebrate the now 28 strong and growing portfolio, Hallmark Hotels is starting a nationwide hunt, on National Orchid Day (April 16th) to find any couples who wed at one of their hotels in 1989 – and are therefore celebrating their 28th wedding anniversary this year - to invite them to return to the place where it all began to celebrate their 'Orchid' anniversary.
As a collection of 28 unique hotels across the country including Grade II listed buildings, stately homes, the world’s oldest Railway hotel and many neo classical gems. Many hotels have been welcoming guests for over 100 years and have witnessed thousands of happy couples pass through their doors in that time.
Hallmark has created a unique ‘Once Upon A Time’ package for these Orchid couples giving them the opportunity to retrace their memories and enjoy a romantic 28th anniversary mini break for the celebratory price of £19.89 in honour of the year they first said ‘I Do.’
The ‘Once Upon A Time’ Experience includes an overnight stay, a bottle of sparkling wine in your room on arrival and a three-course evening meal in the hotel’s restaurant.
To enter, email a photo from your 1989 wedding day celebration to firstname.lastname@example.org OR post a photo to: Hallmark Orchid Weddings c/o Street & Co, Room S96, Second Floor, New Wing, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA. Include details about which Hallmark Hotel the celebrations took place in and the date you would like to book your anniversary stay. One of the team will then contact you to confirm the booking at the special price of £19.89. Your photo will be featured in the Hallmark Hotels : Celebrating Orchid Weddings gallery.
