SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THIS...
Do we have a treat in store for you. Actually, make that treats. Hot-off-the-catwalk fashions, fabulous fragrances, sweet delicacies, dreamy decor and treatments to pamper and polish - prepare for a heady rush of simply divine wedding inspiration.
This being Cornwall, the fresh sea air and sublime scenery of the coastline is chief amongst the sensory treats. Our bridal fashion shoots have taken us from the south east coast to the far west. Starting in the Rame Peninsula, we spent a blissful day at Polhawn Fort shooting 'My Fair Lady' - a celebration of graceful silhouettes and elegant lace captured against the dramatic backdrop of the Fort, the picturesque gardens tumbling down to the beach and the achingly beautiful landscape beyond.
Over to the far west of the county, I loved every moment exploring Carn Cobba, a luxury property perched on the rugged cliffscape of Zennor (which is quite possibly my favourite place in the world). See 'Dream On' for the results: whimsical visions of frothy tulle and fanciful embellishment in this extraordinary corner of Cornwall.
The celebration of the Cornish seascape continues in 'Truly, Madly, Deeply', which offers a peek inside some of the county's most beautiful coastal wedding venues.
Onto the man of the moment - our grooms fashion special guides your man through the basics of choosing his look, serving up some sharp suits and accessories for his shopping pleasure. Then there's our fabulous bridesmaid features, which cover the dresses to the dilemmas and all in-between.
'Party Scene' showcases a gorgeous array of decor inspired by the hottest trends of the moment. From bohemian to Victorian, choose your theme and take your pick of these oh-so pretty party ideas.
And due to popular demand, we have crammed in more real weddings than ever before. From suits to sweets and frocks to fragrances - we've got it all covered. Quite simply, this issue is required reading for every discerning bride (and groom!) Enjoy!
