December/January 2022/2023

I for one, love winter. Not the rainy winter we tend to get here in good ol’blighty, but the oh-so dreamy bright skies and frosty footpaths, orange-coloured leaves and log fires, Christmas carols and mulled wine, layers of cosy knitwear and wellies by the front door – honestly, what is there not to love? Not only is the festive period the most popular time of year to propose – 75% of engagements happen over the season – but it’s also a great time of year to tie the knot too. There is inspiration aplenty for theme ideas and colour schemes, what’s more is that venues are also decked to the halls in Christmas paraphernalia so that’s one job off your to-do list and a little saving for the wedding budget to boot!

Over on page 19 we have a pick of top 10 venues for winter nuptials, and a lush festive-themed styled shoot over on page 49. For fashion, the gents are sorted for seasonal attire over on page 90, and there’s a delicious catering feature talking about festive menus on 57. For the ultimate style inspiration, we showcase how to create your very own winter wonderland on 62 – you’re welcome!

Psst! Head over to www.youreastanglian.wedding/get-involved-real-wedding to submit your wedding for consideration for one of our Real Wedding features – we’d love to feature you! Sit back, relax and enjoy this issue.

Trinity Hall

Trinity Hall dates back to 1350 and is one of the oldest and most beautiful of the Cambridge colleges. Its breathtaking riverside grounds are the perfect backdrop, set around a series of historic courtyards it boasts beautiful gardens, manicured lawns and fantastic river views.

The college includes a wealth of historic buildings and interesting architectural features ranging from the Medieval period through to the present day. Ceremonies and receptions are held within a variety of stunning historic rooms ranging from the intimate to the grand, suitable for wedding parties large or small.

For vows, the Graham Storey Room is located on the ground floor within an attractive red-brick Tudor building. This spacious room includes many historic features and enjoys views of Latham Lawn. It’s suitable for ceremonies for up to 90. The Leslie Stephen Room is located on the first floor overlooking the college’s front court. This attractive and historic room is ideal for smaller ceremonies of up to 30 guests (available Sunday to Thursday during college vacations).

Post-ceremony, Trinity Hall’s beautiful riverside grounds offer an idyllic setting for your drinks and canapés reception. For a quintessentially Cambridge wedding, you could arrive by chauffeured punt to be greeted by your guests on the River Terrace or enjoy a mini punting party with your guests along the River Cam. For a classic summer wedding, you can include traditional garden games on Latham Lawn with Champagne, Prosecco or Pimms.

Following the drinks reception, enjoy your wedding breakfast in the Medieval Dining Hall (capacity 150), boasting a high-vaulted ceiling, impressive portrait collection and ornate historic features.

As your celebrations continue into the night, the Crescent Room is the perfect space for live music and DJs/discos. The adjoining Aula Bar includes comfortable leather armchairs and sofas, and a well-stocked bar. These rooms are accessed via the historic North Court which offers a wonderful outdoor setting for acoustic music. Total capacity 150.

During college vacations Trinity Hall is available for larger weddings of 60 to 150 guests on Fridays and Saturdays (80 guest minimum on Saturdays) and more intimate weddings of up to 50 guests from Sunday to Thursday.

When tying the knot here, Trinity Hall’s wedding package includes wedding coordinators a complimentary menu tasting, and private changing rooms for the nearlyweds to get fully prepared on their wedding day (subject to availability). Accommodation for wedding guests may also be offered subject to availability.

Fragrance hacks to make your scent last longer
Fragrance hacks to make your scent last longer
As we all start clutching our pennies a little bit tighter, we're asking the experts for some tricks to make a beauty product last for longer.
