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!

To help prepare you for the day of love, I’ve created a moodboard full of some of my favourite products. 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 yoursouthwales.wedding/get-involved-real-wedding.cfm

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!

Peterstone Court Country House & Spa

Peterstone Court Country House & Spa is situated in the heart of Brecon Beacons National Park. Overlooking the Pen y Fan mountain range, there are lots of places to explore, including the feature terrace and landscaped gardens. Traditional décor is peppered with contemporary details, including a grand staircase and feature fireplace. The exterior remains loyal to its Georgian heritage, and the venue offers accommodation and spa facilities – perfect for pre- and post-wedding pampering.

Lovebirds can tie the knot in the Library, which boasts wood-panelled walls and has space for 30 loved ones for the ceremony.

The Pen y Fan Ballroom, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and its own bar, is also available. One hundred and twenty-five friends and family can be accommodated for the service and up to 130 are welcome to attend the evening reception.

Couples will receive a complimentary bedroom on the night of the wedding.
