January/February 2019

If you started out 2019 with a sparkly new ring on your finger – congratulations, the journey starts here! It's a peak period for proposals and with Valentine’s Day around the corner, love is in the air and there’s a buzz of expectation.It’s not just the engagement ring that’s in the spotlight, we showcase a whole range of jewellery and accessories to make your big day shine, starting on page 63. We’re excited for all the fabulous spring and summer weddings to come and although the first green shoots may still seem a way off, we’re already dreaming of fabulous florals and pretty pastels. Check out our moodboards, starting on page 69, for a colour burst of inspiration. However, while the long winter nights are still with us, now is the perfect time to get cracking with the planning. Doing your homework is vital, so while the weather’s still frosty outside, you can cosy up with your other half to browse the pages of this issue. Packed full of wedding loveliness, it’s a treasure trove of inspiration and local wedding experts on your doorstep. Don’t forget to save the details of all your favourite things, better still, create a Pinterest page. Your suppliers will love you for it, as it makes their job so much easier if they can share your big-day vision.

Happy planning!

The Elvetham

If you’re looking for wedding wow factor, The Elvetham is hard to beat. A magnificent example of Victorian architecture, the impressive building is set within 35 acres of landscaped gardens surrounded by the vast family-owned estate in Hartley Wintney.

A picture-perfect location for a stylish big day, the venue oozes history and charm. Full of original features, it’s a photographer’s dream with fireplaces, stained-glass windows, oak-panelled walls and a spectacular staircase – great for romantic just-wed shots.

Licensed for weddings indoors and out, the venue can accommodate up to 200 guests to watch you say ‘I do’ in the grand surroundings of the Library. Adorned with classical art and bookcases lining the walls, it’s the largest and one of the finest rooms in the house. With an ornate stone fireplace and beamed ceilings it provides an atmospheric setting for the ceremony and wedding breakfast.

For those looking to make the most of the outdoor setting, the secluded Summerhouse is a picturesque spot to tie the knot joined by 120 loved ones. Celebrate afterwards in the bright and beautiful Conservatory and enjoy panoramic views of the gardens and rolling countryside. Full of natural light during the day, the ceiling can be festooned with fairylights for a magical evening celebration. With a wealth of standout features and spaces for weddings large or small, with the addition of a marquee you can host a party for as many as 600 family and friends for the evening reception. What’s more there are 72 elegant bedrooms for guests wanting to make the most of the celebration.
