November/December 2018
 
Welcome to the Christmas issue of Your South Wales Wedding! I love this time of year. It brings out my inner child, and I’m ashamed to say my nearest and dearest still have to hide my presents from me in fear I’ll open them early – like I’d do that! One of my favourite things to do is curl up on the sofa in my big fluffy dressing gown with a cup of hot chocolate, my other half and a film. Growing up, I always loved watching Gremlins and Deck The Halls; both of which still leave me in fits of laughter even though I’ve seen them a million times! What are you most excited about? I can’t wait to stop watching the scales and eat mountains of shortbread and yule log – hopefully my clothes will still fit in the new year!

Everything looks magical in winter – especially weddings! I love festive-themed nuptials, and if I were to tie the knot, I think it’s what I’d opt for. I look forward to writing this issue every year, and I’m super excited for you all to see it! It’s brimming with Christmas cheer, with fairytale venues on page 29, real weddings on page 37 and an inspirational feature on page 65.

If you’re getting married, don’t forget to send me an email at melissab@kdmediapublishing.com to see how you can have your big day featured in the magazine.

I hope you all have a fabulous holiday, and I’ll see you in the new year!
