Conservatories and orangeries are a very popular addition to many modern homes. However if it was not for Sir Joseph Paxton born over two hundred years ago they may never have become so popular. Sir Joesph Paxton was born on the 3rd August 1803 from a humble background, the son of a farmer he grew up to design the Great Conservatory at Chatworth House and The Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition in 1851. Without him it is unlikely that the popularity of conservatories during the Victorian era would have been so great. Modern conservatories and orangeries have evolved from the conservatories designed by Sir Joseph Paxton all those years ago.
Paxton started off as a garden boy at the age of fifteen, his career soon took off and by the age of 20 he was working for the Horticultural Society. It was here that he was noticed by William Cavendish the 6th Duke of Devonshire. The Duke appointed Paxton as head gardener at his family’s large country estate Chatsworth House in Derbyshire in 1826. Paxton soon started to make his mark building the Emperor Fountain at the time the tallest gravity fed fountain in the world.
But it was in 1837 when Paxton started working on the Great Conservatory at Chatsworth. At the time of construction it was the largest glass building in the world at cost of more than £30,000 to build. People came from far and wide to see the conservatory including Queen Victoria herself.
Following on from the success of the Great Conservatory in 1851 Paxton was commissioned to design the Crystal Palace to hold the great exhibition. It was higher than Westminster Abbey and 1,851ft long. He was praised highly for this work and became a famous man he even received a knighthood in 1851 from Queen Victoria.
Many people visited these fantastic conservatories and decided they wanted a scaled down version for their homes and conservatories soon became very popular indeed. Since this time conservatories have gone through phases of being very fashionable. It was not however until the end of the twentieth century with improvements in technology such as double glazing that meant conservatories were not only affordable by the masses but also a space that could be used throughout the year helping them to become more popular than eve

The Wedding Bells Are Ringing! Use These Tips For Yours!
Many of us have daydreamed about the day when we will walk down the aisle ever since childhood, right down to the gown we will wear, what our hair will look like, and the colors in our bouquet. Wedding planning can be thrilling but without help, it can be overwhelming.
Weddings are one of the more difficult things to plan during the course of your life. Make sure that before your wedding, you are extremely organized so you are in a great position when it comes time to decide on certain questions. This will give you the best opportunity for success.
Remember to consider how you would like the alcohol at your reception served, and how much it will cost. If there is one thing people like more than alcohol, it is free alcohol, and an open bar can quickly become a huge expense, especially the longer it remains open. Check with your venue to find out the alcohol options they have for you to choose from.
If something goes wrong on your wedding day, don't freak out! My cake fell over on the way to my ceremony, and both the best man and woman were unable to attend. In the end, those people are no longer in my life and my new best woman was a cake decorator who was able to fix the cake. It will always work out!
Think of an exotic location for your wedding to make it even more fun and memorable! You could hold your ceremony at a ranch and ride a white horse down the aisle, or have it at a wildlife preserve and have an animal bring the rings down the aisle. I wouldn't recommend choosing a turtle for that job, though!
If you are planning a wedding, consider keeping your guest list on the smaller side. You can save money by having not so many guests. You can show your small number of guests' greater details such as large gift baskets, large meals, and limo services. This can be paid for just by reducing your guest list.
Consider visiting a local park or museum to have your wedding photos taken. It's amazing to have a gorgeous background in your photographs, but sometimes your actual wedding location might not offer such a view. Contact your city's government office to see if you'll need a photography license for the location you choose.
Make sure that after your wedding you send thank-you notes to all of your guests for not only coming to your wedding but for the gifts that they gave to you. This will make them feel special and show that you appreciated them using their time to share your special moment.
If you're going to photograph a wedding, change up your style a few times. Look for angles you might not have shot from before to give the wedding album something unique and different to set it apart from the rest. Go up high or down load, shoot wide angles and tight.
Look around before committing to a photographer. You do not want to have someone taking wedding pictures that you are not pleased with. Look for online reviews to find great photographers.
Try to avoid being sick for your wedding! Up your intake of Vitamin C and eat only healthy items in the weeks leading up to the big day. Stay away from any foods that may cause stomach upset or gas as the last thing you want to do when you're standing at the front of the ceremony is be flatulent!
It is okay to let loose at your wedding reception. Many people take their wedding day too serious and do not remember it is supposed to be a joyous occasion. When this happens, they look back at their special day with unpleasant memories. Laugh with your guests, and dance to upbeat music.
Ensure that everyone coming to your destination wedding, knows exactly what to do and where to go when they get off the plane. Provide them with detailed instructions on how to get to the hotel and then, how to get from the hotel to your wedding location. They should also have help in heading home.
You do not have to be overwhelmed by the thought of planning your wedding once you use the tips you have just read. With the tips from above, you can handle planning your wedding and look forward to your big day.
