April/May 2019

There’s nothing better than the first time you step out of the office at 5.30pm and it’s still light. Couple that with birds chirping in the trees and flowers starting to bloom, and it truly feels like the grip of winter has passed and that spring has officially sprung. We’ve got extra reason to be happy this season, as we’re celebrating our platinum 70th anniversary edition – I can’t believe how time flies.

As we have been for the past 12 years, we’re on hand to inspire you through the planning process. Check out our Handmade in Bristol & Somerset feature on page 65, where we source the best hand-crafted products our region has to offer. Our wonderful fashion editor, Claire Ridley, has a host of fun and frivolous dresses to swoon over on page 79. And if the changing of the season has got you in the mood for some sunshine, then make sure you check out our honeymoon section, starting on page 119.

The Bishop's Palace & Gardens

Hidden within ancient ramparts and protected by a moat, 14 acres of tranquil, Grade II listed gardens await visitors. With herbaceous borders, pretty pools and the scent of roses in the air, there are endless photo opportunities against the backdrop of the cathedral. In 2016, the gardens were awarded RHS Partner Garden status.

The palace dates back to the 13th century, and the romantic ruins of The Great Hall complement the majesty of the medieval façade and awe-inspiring setting of the gatehouse and moat. The Bishop’s Private Chapel is renowned for its impressive stone tracery and high stained-glass windows. The adjacent town hall is available for the official “I dos.” Parties then head to the venue to celebrate in a choice of spaces, including the medieval Entrance Hall, the vaulted stone Undercroft, the Terrace and the Long Gallery. Guests can also explore the grounds, which are home to the well pools that give the city its name. On the moat are the famous swans, who ring a bell when they want food!

Couples tying the knot here receive a free food tasting and complimentary membership for a year.
