October/November 2019

As we watch another summer wedding season slide away from view, I get the joy of seeing all the beautiful big days that have happened over the past few months land in my inbox. It never ceases to amaze me what an incredibly talented bunch of suppliers we have in Bristol and Somerset and how many awesome couples there are who are dedicated to rocking their day in their own way. As a nosy parker, seeing all of your incredible weddings is the best part of my job – flick to page 30 to see this issue’s pick.

If you’re prone to wanderlust, turn to page 108 to check out our favourite honeymoon spots. I was lucky enough to head to the ultimate luxury destination: the Maldives. I know – I’d hate me too!

This issue, we’ve asked some of the best photographers in the regions to share images showing the emotional rollercoaster that is a wedding day (page 51) – get the tissues ready! We’ve also got three fabulous styled shoots for you (pages 79, 91 and 99) to help get your creative juices flowing.

North Cadbury Court

Set in its own 1,500-acre estate, this exclusive-use venue is surrounded by sweeping lawns, parkland, lakes, woodland, tennis courts, walled gardens and incredible views.
Visitors first glimpse the breathtaking building down a tree-lined driveway. Inside, the Grade I listed country house exudes a homely feel, perfect for winter weddings. Restored to a five-star luxury standard, there’s a spa wing, casino, disco and the incredible Balcony Room – a spacious suite with room for the whole bridal party to get ready in. The venue also has a real sense of fun, showcased by the rooftop golf tee and putting green. There’s even a mini lift to bring your drink up to you!

Couples can tie the knot at the church next door or in the Garden Gazebo (200 guests) for an al fresco setting. The house has some wonderful spaces for celebrations. The North Hall (150 guests) is an Elizabethan wood-panelled room, while the Ballroom (200 ceremony guests and 250 reception guests) is a light, south-facing space.

The grounds are home to the stylish Yacht Club (150 ceremony guests and 90 reception guests) and decking area. A modern wooden building, it boasts lakeside views and has a marquee site adjacent to it for larger parties.

Guests will love the secret casino. Set in a converted cellar beneath the sprawling stately home, only those who book the entire house can make use of it. There’s also the underground disco. Party here, and you’ll be walking in the footsteps of BBC Radio 1 DJs who have celebrated in the space.

All couples receive the expert services of event managers Georgia and Nell, who’ll guide and support you throughout the planning process.
