June/July 2018
Last month I tied the knot myself so joined the Team Bride brigade along with all of our previous CWM readers who have gone on to say ‘I do’. We’d actually picked our rose gold and blush colour scheme way before it became as popular as it was in 2017 – quite the trendsetter – and, although it all looked exactly how I envisioned on the day I’m already full of new ideas, inspired by the last few months of 2018 alone!

What we have in this issue of Your Sussex Wedding has tickled my design tastebuds; I opted for an Art Deco dress however our bohemian bridal fashion feature over on page 84 makes me want to go back and channel a natural goddess-vibe, meanwhile the shoot created by local suppliers on page 73 showcases the beauty of a dark colour palette – blush is so last season! And, if only I had read about the amazing music and entertainment options out there, as featured on page 55 – we hired a jukebox which was great fun but looking back a couple of extra surprise acts would have gone down a treat.

I’ve put together a moodboard of a hot trend I’m loving right now: club tropicana – and the sun’s finally warming up the UK too!

Hope you enjoy reading this issue as much as I’ve had writing it for you!

Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa

With the appearance of an ancient manor house, Bailiffscourt’s best kept secret is that until 1972 it didn’t exist. Walk through the doors and take a step back in time, as narrow passageways with flagstone floors lead visitors through a series of intimate lounges and sitting rooms, decorated with antiques and tapestries, comfortable sofas or armchairs and log fires. It also features Gothic mullioned windows boasting views of the delightful gardens and rose-clad courtyard.

Inside, the hotel boasts 39 beautiful bedrooms and suites located in a series of buildings including the Medieval House, which is connected to the Thatch House by an underground tunnel. There’s a choice of Medieval or contemporary-designed bedrooms and some feature open fireplaces and four-poster beds.

The grounds comprise 30 acres of private gardens and parkland with a moat, small streams and an abundance of wildlife all leading down to unspoilt Climping Beach – there’s also a helipad!

For nuptials, the 13th-century Norman Chapel sits within the grounds and is available for blessings. Alternatively, couples can opt for the Music Room – a characterful room hung with tapestries, working fireplace and wooden floors for up to 60 people.

This space is also used for receptions for up to 40 seated guests and 65 people standing. For larger parties, the Tapestry Restaurant, is an elegant room with Medieval architecture, mullioned windows and tapestry-hung walls for up to 80 loved ones, and up to 120 evening guests.

A few steps from the hotel is the luxurious and contemporary Bailiffscourt Spa with facilities that include an indoor pool and stunning outdoor heated infinity pool, hot tub, fitness suite, indoor spa bath, relaxation room, relaxation lounge, tennis courts and six treatment rooms – all you need for pre- and post-wedding pampering.
