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!

Spotlight on Monmouthshire, Brecon and around

The award-winning Glen-Yr-Afon is situated in the Monmouthshire countryside. The four-star Victorian villa is just a five-minute walk away from the delightful town of Usk, which is full of boutique shops and charming restaurants. There are 28 modern bedrooms couples can choose from and a range of packages to suit all budgets. The property first opened its doors in 1974 and boasts a rustic décor throughout.

Lovebirds can tie the knot in the grand Ballroom, an elegant space with large bay windows that overlook the surrounding countryside, with room for 150 friends and family throughout the day.

Alternatively, the Library, with its conical ceiling and striking décor, has space for 30 loved ones.

Receptions take place in the on-site Restaurant. It’s capable of holding 35 nearest and dearest, while the Dining Room can hold 22.
