The Latest Cornwall Issue of Wed Magazine


Cornwall Wed Magazine - Issue 56


BRIGHTER HORIZONS


Our cover image sees a loved-up couple on a Cornish clifftop. The ancient, moss-cloaked cliffs; the green-blue sweep of ocean; the coastline curling into the distance – it is a scene that positively screams ‘Cornwall’. There’s something wild, free and wonderful about this perfect moment immersed in the elements and untamed beauty of the landscape.

Living in the far west of the county, the sea has been my refuge through the winter lockdown. Even on the murkiest winter’s days, the reassuring rhythm of the tide has been soothing. It seems it has been yours too – there’s been so much love on our social media platforms for images capturing cherished moments against a Cornish ocean backdrop. It seems we’ve all wanted to dream awhile and revel in visions of love on warm sands, wave-lashed rocks and clifftops at sunset, and escape – if only in our minds – to a perfect moment on the water’s edge.

Buoyed by the number of magazine orders, subscribers and newly engaged couples getting in touch over these past weeks – it’s been so wonderful to hear all your joy-filled stories amidst such bleak times – we’re looking forward to a future filled with the sweetest celebrations of love on the Cornish coast.

We were lucky enough to spend the uncertain days of lockdown pouring our hearts and souls into filling these pages with as much happiness, beauty and love as possible. From styled shoots that take us from blustery clifftops to rural idylls on a summer’s eve; gorgeous ideas for flowers, ceremonies and styling; and dreamlike real weddings from Nancarrow Farm in the cosy depths of winter to Polzeath on a sun-drenched summer solstice – our focus was to inspire, uplift and celebrate the wonderful days yet to come, glimmering on the Cornish horizon.
