HEAVEN IN DEVON

Freshly engaged? Congratulations! Welcome to Wed – your trusted companion every step of the way to the altar. We’re here to inspire a beautifully individual wedding in Devon filled with joy, love and oodles of personality. 



Now is a good time to get rid of any preconceptions of what a wedding ‘should’ be. Consider the rulebook thrown out – for the modern wedding can be anything you dream it to be, whether it’s boho vibes on the beach, a handfasting in the woods, festival fun on the farm or all-out glamour at a majestic country house. It might even be the cosiest of dos for two. As long as it epitomises your vision as a couple, then we say: go for it! You’ll find each issue of Wed is a celebration of brilliantly individual weddings, creative styling ideas, must-read features – and the finest wedding suppliers in Devon.



We had the pleasure of staying at one of the county’s finest venues: Coombe Trenchard to shoot our bridal fashion story, ‘Bright Sparks’. From the dramatic Grand Hall to the beautiful Italianate clock tower, it was the most atmospheric of settings to shoot this uber glam selection of gowns, each dripping in sequins, beads and the most lovingly crafted embellishment. You’ll find similarly fashion-forward gowns in ‘Drama Queen’, a chic and sumptuous take on a winter wedding captured amidst the grandeur of Exeter Castle. Then there’s the floral-fabulous mood of ‘Garden Party’; the Moroccan meets Indian vibes of ‘Love in the Time of Colour’ and the heady blend of blooms and whimsy in ‘La Vie en Rose’ – each brimming with lush florals, rich colour and standout style.







From fairground fun to candlelit clifftop vows, ‘Got Wed’ is filled with beautiful love stories, each of which captures a rich sense of personality, the joy of love – and the enchanting beauty of Devon. You, dear readers, have chosen one awe-inspiring county to marry in – and we look forward to inspiring the wedding of your wildest – and most wonderful – dreams!
