June/July 2018
 
We’ve made it – summer’s finally here and with the royal wedding still fresh in our memories now’s the perfect time to roll your sleeves up and get your big-day plans underway. I love this time of the year, there’s so much to be happy about – sunshine, bright blooms, al fresco dining and endless evenings to name a few. Mix that with love, laughter, friends and family and you’ll have the perfect combo for your special day. Summer lends itself to bohemian laid-back styling and if this is your thing, you’ll love our bridal fashion feature on page 84. Our real weddings from page 36 are also brimming with inspiration and, drum roll please, the time has come to announce the winners of our Wedding of the Year competition 2017! Turn to page 60 to read all about their day. All that’s left to do is pour yourself a refreshing glass of Pimm’s, sit back and relax with your copy of Your Herts and Beds Wedding and prepare to lose yourself in an abundance of seasonal vibes.

Hertford Castle Gatehouse

With its secluded grounds hidden by the surrounding 12th-century flint and stone wall, this venue is guaranteed to impress. The Grade I listed building is steeped in history and dates back to the mid 15th-century. For more than 300 years, the castle was used as a royal palace where Queen Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood.

Couples have exclusive-use of the three rooms set within the castle’s Georgian-styled Downshire Suite that radiates character and ambiance. The three rooms include the Mayor’s Parlour, The Salisbury Room and the Conservatory, which overlooks the castle wall and the arched entrance to the moat gardens. The suite can accommodate 60 guests for the ceremony and wedding breakfast and up to 100 for the reception.
