March/April 2019

Spring will soon be in full bloom with the promise of more daylight hours and warmer weather on the way. Although I’m not prepared to ditch my winter woollies just yet, things are already hotting up here at County Weddings HQ. Valentine’s Day delivered a fresh stream of couples embarking on their big-day journey and we’re here to help with advice from local experts and a whole host of fresh ideas. The wedding season will soon be kicking off in earnest and, as always, we’re keeping our finger firmly on the pulse to report back to you with all the latest trends, bridal must-haves, must-see venues, fashion and more. Covering everything from great colour combos for fabulous florals on page 65 to what’s big in wedding catering on page 59, we’re on the case, helping you create your dream day. Along the way, remember to take time out to savour this special time as a couple too, arrange a date night and declare it a wedding-free zone.

Rownhams House & Gardens

If you’re looking for a romantic big-day setting, this magical venue is hard to beat. Set in 12 acres of gardens and woodland, Rownhams House is a beautiful Georgian manor full of character and charm, complete with its own lake and ice house, it’s a photographer’s dream with a wealth of album-worthy backdrops. You can marry inside and choose from five indoor ceremony spaces including the Grand Library, a beautiful room with ornate plastered ceilings and walls, wooden floors and sash windows. With space for up to 120 guests, you can exchange vows and spill out into the garden afterwards for an al fresco drinks reception, before returning inside to the Library for a sit-down meal.

The Medieval Coach House with its arches and tall clock tower provides a fairytale setting for more intimate weddings and is ideal for the evening reception. With a spacious main entrance hall, dancefloor, space for a DJ or band, and quirky dedicated bar area in the adjoining Knights Hall, you can celebrate with up to 150 loved ones.
