Kissing Gate


Fable has it that if a couple meet and kiss at this gate, they will marry within the year.
Not surprising then, that many couples come here to have engagement and wedding photos taken at the gate!

Linking today with Signs Signs HERE

and Outdoor Wednesdays with A Southern Daydreamer HERE

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Hello, what a cute fable. Pretty scene and gate. I have been on the Kissing Bridge in London, it is nice you have a kissing gate. Enjoy your day and week ahead!

  6. It looks like there is a bird there waiting for a kiss.

  7. I like that fable...I love the two pilasters! They appear to be quite old.

  8. I love it! Nice. The etymology of the name is that the gate merely "kisses" (touches) the enclosure either side, rather than needing to be securely latched.

  10. The metal gate looks too new for the rock pillars, but still a lovely spot. - Margy

  13. That is a sweet fable, and I'll bet it comes true for many couples. Don't have anything like this around here.

  15. It is a nice, respectful sign - nothing garish, or tacky.
