August/September 2018

I'm very excited to say that I am now planning a wedding – not my own, but my best friend Charlie’s! As soon as she announced she was engaged I went in to full-on control freak mode. I took her a whole stack of magazines and we’ve now got five Pinterest boards brimming with outlandish and over-the-top ideas. I got married two years ago, and I’ve been counting down the seconds until I could get my wedmin spreadsheet out again!

Our first job to tick off the to-do list was to choose a venue. If you’re at the same stage, then make sure you flick to page 17 to see our pick of beautiful Bristol venues.

You’re going to love the super-sweet styled shoot on page 79; featuring pretty pastels and Neapolitan hues, it showcases how couples can totally rock their day in their own way.

Don’t tell my bestie, but I’ve already started looking at flower ideas – turn to page 64 to see our experts’ most showstopping displays. I’m trying to convince her that the maid-of-honour traditionally gets a diamond ring too!

Hamswell House

Nestled in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty stands the historic Hamswell House and its romantic 18th-century gardens. A fine example of English renaissance architecture, the stately home is located within its own private estate.

Couples are given exclusive use of the venue to enjoy with their loved ones. Seating up to 40 people inside and more on the lawn, The Orangery features glorious high-arched windows and a Cotswold-stone roof.

After the formalities, guests are free to enjoy drinks on the terrace and soak up the panoramas before exploring the walled gardens, terraced herb garden and wisteria-clad pergola.

Receptions are held in a custom-built marquee catering for up to 240 attendees. Smaller wedding parties of up to 40 invitees can take advantage of a special all-inclusive package.
