THE LOOK OF LOVE

It’s all about the love. We know that. But your wedding day is also one fabulous excuse to indulge yourself in the things you love. And in this, our annual style special, you’ll find oodles of inspiration for creating a wedding brimming with super-cool – and so-you – ‘stuff’.






If it’s all about the wedding dress for you, then prepare for a treat. From vintage-inspired gowns to super-stylish cuts, you’ll find our pick of the fresh-from-the-catwalk fashions now gracing the rails of Devon’s must-visit bridal boutiques. Together with our seriously stunning bridal fashion story ‘Modern Love’, there’s so much gorgeousness in these pages we’re confident that you’ll find ‘the one.’






Got a thing for bling? Or a fancy for footwear? Don’t miss our showcase of the hottest accessories and shoes in Devon. Plus you’ll find the county’s most fashion-forward bridesmaids’ frocks in ‘Maid Up.’ Not forgetting the chaps, ‘Suits You, Sir’ looks at the sharpest looks for the modern groom, from dapper formalwear to contemporary cool.




Then there’s the other ‘stuff’. There are no bounds to what you can achieve where it comes to reception décor at the modern wedding. Whether you have a passion for the vintage or the cutting-edge, the country or the coast, all things gothic or all things glam, it’s all about dressing your day with a vibe that shouts ‘you.’ And we have inspiration galore thanks to our jaw-droppingly beautiful styled shoots. There’s dreamy décor in shades of copper, green and white at the Deer Park and Miami cool on the coast; there’s ethereal dreaminess on the shores of south Devon and achingly modern chic in the glorious setting of Pynes House. Prepare to find your perfect party scene.






Continuing the theme, in ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’, we explore the importance of celebrating who you are – as individuals and a couple – on your wedding day. And in ‘Got Wed’, we meet six couples who did just that, allowing their personalities to shine through in a whole host of ways, from the wedding wear and décor to the food and entertainment. So be bold, be brave – and enjoy the very best of days!
