"WED magazine has undoubtedly helped with our huge increase in weddings since I started - from approx 12 a year to 70+ this year and counting! In fact I think you are possibly our top web referrer"

"ever since Wed Magazine landed at the shop five years ago I've been hooked! At last imagination with creativity - each edition an heirloom to treasure.  Thank you Brendan and Rebecca for giving the Bridal Industry in the South West the showcase we've all been waiting for, no-one else comes close!"

Linda Duriez founder of Pirouette & owner/designer of Days of Grace Vintage.

"Wed magazine has undoubtedly brought brides to my boutique. We always ask where brides have found us and Wed magazine is always mentioned, either through the magazine or the website. Often the bride is clutching her copy with a picture of a dress that has been featured which is advertising working at its best for us. Brendan and Rebecca  are so supportive and I would recommend anyone in the bridal industry to advertise with Wed".

Elaine Rawlings - County Cream Bridal House

I just thought I’d let you know that yesterday we had our first bride contact us who’d heard of us via your website! That is success within less than a week! I’m really pleased (also nice to prove to the boss that it’s worth the money).
Thank you for creating such a stylish and usable magazine, there really is no competition in my eyes. Here’s to a great working relationship for the future.

WED Magazine & Trevenna have from the outset always had something different to offer to our couples. It is the creative skills, passion and drive of everyone at WED that continues to grow our relationship with this beautiful publication. So much more than advertising, WED's editorial content has spotted & encouraged new trends while at the same time celebrated traditions.

WED's vision is unparalleled in any other wedding publication in the UK. WED's attention to detail and quality is appreciated and allows our work to be shared.

The thrill of flicking through the new glossy pages to see if any Trevenna images have been included in the latest WED edition is addictive - so much so that every WED edition is a treasure here in the Trevenna's archives. 

Jonathan Rowe, Owner of Trevenna

I am really happy with the exposure your magazine has given me by the way- since advertising, my bookings for this year were doubled and next year is one third full already! Lots of our customers say your magazine is one they really trust, as opposed to many of the others which are essentially just advertising space. Keep up the good work I think is what I'm trying to say!!

“My friend bought me my first Wedding Magazine, which was Wed Magazine, I then bought a couple of other popular wedding magazines, but found that none of them compare to Wed.  Wed gives an excellent overview of what Cornwall has to offer, it is informative, friendly and full of great ideas and tips, I can’t wait for the next publication.  This magazine is a must have for every bride to be.  It is a really refreshing approach” 

Elizabeth Chance, Truro, Cornwall.

Wed magazine has surpassed my expectations. Each and every issue delivers high end publishing, great editorial and is always beautifully shot. The Wed website continually drives important traffic to my site and the most telling sign is that almost every bride to walk through my studio doors has a copy in hand. The magazine is a joy to shoot fashion for on occasion and I cannot imagine the face of the industry now without you. I thank you for playing a vital role in my continual growth and success.

Just bought my 1st wedding magazine (yours of course) and was expecting it to be full of ads and useless info but was really happy to find it full of really useful and well written articles, great pics, advice and lots more besides. So...when is the next one due out..?!! ;)

Lianne Stanbury - Bride-to be

"We advertise with Wed Magazine on a regular basis.  We have had a number of bookings as a direct result of the coverage that we have had in wed.  We feel that the magazine is progressive, contemporary, exciting and fun.  It is exactly the kind of publication that we wish to be associated with.  Their enthusiasm and belief in both the magazine and its subject matter is contagious and it is a pleasure to be associated with them."

"I have been advertising with Wed Magazine since 2009, in the second issue of Wed.I noticed immediately when it was launched in Devon as the magazine stands out from other wedding/bridal magazine's both in style and size.  I read through the first issue and was really impressed and inspired by the layout and content. I contact Rebecca and Brendan, who from that initial contact have always been really helpful, interested and efficient in helping me as an advertiser get the most from the Magazine. I have advertised in every following issue and have always been given wonderful coverage, within their regular 'Got Wed' Real Wedding section and other editorial pieces. Their Media pack explains everything fabulously and their advertising prices are really reasonable. 

I have consistently had wonderful bookings coming from readers of Wed who have fitted my style perfectly. It is now my main source of advertising and marketing. Due to the fact that the magazine has a brilliant array of content from sustainable eco-conscious weddings to high end couture fashion, with an overall more modern, artistic and refreshing approach to Weddings it appeals to all genres, male and female alike. Many of my grooms have said that it is the only Wedding Magazine that they have found interesting and helpful.

They have a great mix of advertisers on board covering all aspects of the Wedding industry. I really feel that it has helped tremendously in giving local Devon suppliers a platform from which to gain confidence and build up business and contacts on a local scale. Personally I feel it has helped encourage a more cohesive and less competitive relationship between Wedding suppliers locally and has helped me build up a network which I find invaluable from a professional as well as personal point of view. Rebecca and Brendan are throughly professional and very customer focused, as well as being friendly and approachable. They keep in touch regularly by phone and e-mail and are always interested to hear about new projects and ideas. The Magazine in Devon has gone from strength to strength, never failing to produce interesting new content and visually inspiring design. 

It is widely read in Devon and I see it in all types of retail outlets as well as Wedding Venues across Devon. Brides and Grooms always comment on how great and different it is. My couples who have been featured in the 'Real Wedding' section, have been over the moon!
I couldn't be happier advertising with Wed and am looking forward to being a part of the Magazine as it continues to grow and develop across the county."

We have had a strong relationship with WED since the beginning, Brendan is always at the end of the phone or comes in to see us and discuss industry
news and the magazine focus for the following issue.  Their
marketing approach is one of the best we have seen with anyone we advertise with and they have most certainly generated enquiries for us.
