The Latest Cornwall Issue of Wed Magazine


Cornwall Wed Magazine - Issue 57


BETTER TOGETHER

As I write, it has been confirmed that weddings of more than 30 guests can go ahead over the coming months. Despite the continuing restrictions over the next few weeks, we can look forward to big, joy-filled weddings again. After the heartache and uncertainty of the past year, we simply cannot wait to see the images and hear the stories of your longed-for celebrations!









We hope this issue inspires you to embrace whatever your wedding dreams are made of – whether it’s a wild outdoor wedding in the elements, a tantalising menu of your favourite cocktails menu or a spine-tingling soundtrack. We’ve also got gorgeous local favour ideas, lust-worthy wedding jewellery and the freshest fashions for brides and grooms.





If you’re seeking styling inspiration to help you finetune the look and mood of your big day, look no further. New Cornish wedding venue Boconnion sets the scene for two contrasting wedding vibes: ‘Modern Classic’ is a super-luxe vision of sharp suits, chic white blooms and decadent detailing, while ‘Bohemian Dream’ is all about muted colours, pampas grass and the ultimate in summery boho fashions. The boho-chic vibes continue in ‘Earth Story’, a symphony of warm, earthy hues, dramatic florals and statement accessories.





Rounding off this issue, ‘Got Wed’ gives us a taster of what we can look forward to over the coming months. From Rosanna and John’s midsummer wedding overlooking Mount’s Bay and Sharon and Austen’s folklore-inspired festivities in the heart of Truro to Catherine and Cain’s elopement taking in the moorland, woodland and coastline of Cornwall, these stories marry the natural beauty of our county with
the joy of love and togetherness.





Whether your wedding is in two weeks or two years, we hope these pages uplift, inspire and fill you with hope for happy days ahead!
