April/May 2023

I’ve worked at County Wedding Magazines for almost seven years now, and I’ve always admired the gorgeous venues, weddings and talented suppliers in East Anglia, so I’m really excited to introduce myself as the new editor.

This year is flying by, and if you’re counting down the days until your wedding, don’t worry, it will be here before you know it! I love this time of year, partly because I adore spring nuptials but mainly because of the new wedding dress collections. I got married last year and so I know how stressful finding your dream dress can be. I’m short, curvy and very self-conscious, so I was dreading trying on gowns. I had no idea of what style I wanted, a fishtail made me feel like I couldn’t sit down without bursting out of it and a ballgown swamped me, but luckily my bridal consultant suggested an A-line silhouette, which suited my figure. If you’re looking for your dress and feeling overwhelmed by the amount of choice available, make sure you listen to your consultant. They have years of experience and have helped brides of every shape and size find their dream gown, so they will know what looks good on you even if you don’t yourself.

Lastly, don’t panic if you don’t have that overwhelming this is the one feeling, as I didn’t myself, just trust your gut and go for something that makes you feel beautiful, comfortable and confident. For more inspiration, head over to our fashion pages, which are full of stunning on-trend styles, including ruffled tulle, satin layers, lace and subtle pleats.

If you’ve recently tied the knot or organised a styled shoot, you can submit it by email or via our website.

Graduate Cambridge

Graduate Cambridge rests in the heart of the city, but is tucked away just off Mill Lane on the banks of the River Cam, a stone’s throw from Scudamore’s punting. Modern and bold, the front exterior of the hotel stands out amongst the Gothic buildings the city is known for, while still maintaining Cambridge’s quirky charm. Guests can step through the front doors to be met with a space paying homage to its roots, relishing in the hotel’s quiet luxury and eclectic style.

Following a complete interior renovation that includes all rooms, common spaces, fitness club and the pool, Graduate Cambridge’s interiors are made up of colour, patterns and textures that reflect the green surroundings of the pastoral English countryside. Guest rooms see splashes of ‘Cambridge Blue’, and key design details include wallpaper depicting school gates, striking wood and leather desks. The event spaces, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the river, are light and bright, with bold design choices.

Graduate Cambridge’s crowning glory is its Garden Terrace overlooking the River Cam. Guests can relax on comfy, classic chairs while enjoying the punts go by with a beer or cocktail from the Garden Bar. Blue and white striped parasols dot the garden, and across the river guests can look out at the green fields of Cambridgeshire where cows come to graze.

The riverside gardens are an intimate gathering space situated next to the River Cam, so couples can have an exquisite celebration while watching the punts glide by and the British countryside flourish.

Alternatively, the River Suite provides an inspiring backdrop for the special day with views of the River Cam. Its striking floor-to-ceiling windows and access to the riverside garden make for a romantic wedding ceremony, reception, or banquet.

Couples can say ‘I do’ in the Riverside Garden Gazebo while the punts glide by for a quintessentially Cambridge ceremony.

The Cayley Suite is a romantic space overlooking the River Cam that opens directly onto the riverside garden and can be accessed through the Garden House bar.

Receptions are held in a choice of six spaces, capable of accommodating between 220 and 40 people.

The new range features Aromanessence Green Mandarin (£56), Green Mandarin Vitamin Glow Day Cream (£60.50), and Green Mandarin Glow Night Balm (£50.50).
