September/October 2018

It’s hard to believe that I’ve been working at County Wedding Magazines for more than two years now. It seems like only yesterday that I began writing my very first issue of Your South Wales Wedding, and I feel privileged to have worked with so many lovely brides and suppliers, and I hope to work with many more of you in the future!

Whether you’ve recently got engaged or you’re about to tie the knot, think of us as your new BFF when it comes to wedding planning. We’re here to support you throughout every aspect of your big day, and remember we’re always looking for weddings to feature! You can submit your nuptials at any time either through our website or by emailing me at melissab@kdmediapublishing.com

I’ve put together another jam-packed issue bursting with inspiration. Find out how to celebrate your last night of freedom in our hen and stag feature on page 67, and learn how you can style your venue like a pro on page 61. We’ve got the Vale of Glamorgan and spa venues covered too, starting on page 23. And if you’re planning your honeymoon, then head on over to page 120 to see some picture-perfect destinations.

Enjoy the issue!

St Donat’s Castle

St Donat’s Castle is a wedding venue situated in acres of beautiful countryside. Owned by UWC Atlantic College, the property is available for weddings outside of college seasons. It still retains many of its original features, including high ceilings and neutral stone walls. Your guests will be wowed as they approach the grand castle and explore its gardens, inner courtyard, and top lawn.

Celebrate your big day in the Bradenstoke Hall. This space has gorgeous stained-glass windows and is capable of holding 160 of your nearest and dearest throughout the day.

Alternatively, The Inner Courtyard can be used and has a maximum capacity of 160 guests for the vows.

Lovebirds will receive exclusive use of the Stanley bedroom throughout the day as a quiet area or as a changing room. The castle is offering couples 10 percent off venue hire on remaining dates in 2019.
