January/February 2019
 
Can you believe we’re in 2019? It seems like just yesterday it was Easter, but here we are, getting ready to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I love this time of year. Everyone is still excited from Christmas and ready to say goodbye to the cold weather and welcome the spring. I never usually make any new year’s resolutions. I stick to them for a day and then give up; self-control just isn’t my thing – especially when food is involved! But this year I’m determined to give sweet treats a wide birth – wish me luck!

This issue is bursting with inspiration, with five real weddings, starting on page 39, a flowers feature on page 71 and the latest fashion trends on page 95.

I love seeing all of your beautiful weddings, so whether you’re just starting your planning journey, your big day is almost here or you’re already married, make sure you submit your nuptials here www.yoursouthwales.wedding/get-involved-real-wedding

If you have any feature ideas, shoots or just want to get involved in the magazine, drop me an email at melissab@kdmediapublishing.com

Happy planning!

St Fagans National Museum of History

St Fagans National Museum of History is set within 100 acres of breathtaking countryside. Gifted to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth, the Grade I listed venue is ideal for both large and intimate celebrations. It boasts a classical décor throughout, as well as oak furniture and grand paintings. There are plenty of places to take those all-important photographs, including a mulberry grove and vinery.

Couples can tie the knot in the Concert Hall. Located on the first floor, it’s capable of holding 90 loved ones for the vows.

The Dining Hall can also be used, with space for 60 nearest and dearest for the service and 40 for the evening celebration.

Alternatively, the Main Hall is available. It boasts an intricately carved fireplace and beautiful furniture. This room can hold 40 friends and family for the ceremony and 70 for the party.

Weather permitting, an elegant marquee can be erected in the grounds to accommodate 140 guests for the reception.

The Atrium, a beautiful glassed arena with room for 200 attendees, is ideal for larger nuptials.

The award-winning caterers can craft a personal wedding menu using locally sourced ingredients, and the coordinators can recommend a range of trusted suppliers.
