From flowers to fashion and grooves to gastronomy – get set for a feast for the senses. This issue is bursting with petal-strewn frocks, soul-stirring sounds and flavoursome bites – a ripe mix of ingredients for one helluva party.

Our bridal fashion spread ‘Welcome to Paradise’ is brimming with romantic confections of blossoms and petals – and Trebah Gardens was the perfect place to capture them. We spent a wonderful day in the early summer sunshine, the gardens a carnival of colour, discovering the nooks, crannies and secluded sands of this Cornish treasure – and shooting some very pretty frocks and flowers. Continuing the floral theme, ‘Flower Power’ serves up some brilliant ideas for personalising and prettifying your wedding blooms.


Bodmin and Wenford Railway made a dream backdrop for dresses lavished in lace, sparkle and a dash of vintage glamour in ‘All Aboard! From the elegance of the dining car to the station cloaked with vintage signs and retro suitcases, the nostalgic setting exudes the style of a bygone age. See for yourself in ‘All Aboard!’


On the subject of enchanting places, ‘Wild at Heart’ takes you to some of Cornwall’s most secluded and beguiling spots to get wed, while ‘All at Sea’ celebrates the allure of a wedding on the Cornish coast. Shot in the idyllic setting of The Rosevine on the Roseland Peninsula, let this heady mix of washed-out hues, hip prints and sand-between-your-toes details inspire a dreamy do on the seashore.


Music and food also take centre stage this issue – after all, they’re the key ingredients of any good party. ‘Gastronomy of Groove’ serves up a palette-pleasing party soundtrack. We’ve also got all the tastiest wedding food trends and tips on a plate – think snack shacks on wheels, sumptuous Indian menu inspiration and Cornish fizz and favours. Tuck in!
