December/January 2018/2019
Christmas is my favourite time of year. In fact, I may be a little obsessed. Yes, I’m one of those annoying people who starts counting down to Christmas Day immediately after the last bauble has gone back into the loft. From the chill in the air and warm woolly jumpers to the colours, smells, sights and sounds of the festivities – a time when strangers are that little bit nicer to each other – I love it all!

So in deciding what to bring to you this issue, our usual blend of beautiful real weddings and stunning styled shoots just had to be neatly packaged together with a sprinkle of seasonal magic, all neatly tied with a ribbon!

Turn to Hot Topic on page 119, as we ask experts how to create a festive frolic of a wedding day. Plus, we help you to find your winter wonderland venue on page 29 and show you how to style it on page 87.

Before you go, don’t forget to check out our bumper pick of gorgeous styled shoots on pages 67, 73, 83 and 93. The amazing wedding suppliers of Sussex have done it again, with breathtaking inspiration at every turn.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

The Ravenswood

Built in 1426, this 15th-century manor house exudes warmth and charm. With wooden beams, cosy corners, warm fireplaces and elegant staircases, the Ravenswood is a stylish and welcoming venue for your winter wedding.

Set in 18-acres of grounds, you’ll be immediately taken by the grand entrances and fairytale towers as you arrive via the private driveway. The land itself contains four lakes, ruins, a boat house, pleasure gardens, a patio and even a giant chair!

The Old Baronial Hall is the place for ceremonies within the warmth of the manor walls. Seating 150 guests, it has a rustic feel with wooden beams and staircase, an open wood fire and glass doors offering views of the gorgeous grounds.

After the ‘I dos’ you’ll move through to the Princess Beatrice Suite, a round room with wooden ceiling, elegant drapes, large windows and its own bar.

The new Getting Ready room is available to you from 8am on the big day and the newly refurbished honeymoon suite is included in all wedding packages. There will also be opportunity for a complimentary menu tasting.
