The Latest Cornwall Issue of Wed Magazine


Cornwall Wed Magazine - Issue 58


THIS YEAR’S LOVE

Fresh, fun and filled with joy – that’s how I’d sum up this issue of Wed, and what a delight it is to share it with you. I’ve always felt very privileged to be the editor of this magazine but I’ve never felt so grateful for my role as I have putting this particular issue together. 

After the crushing lows of the past year, it’s been so wonderful to see Cornwall’s wedding industry spring back into life with more passion than ever, and our readers savouring every last moment of their long-awaited wedding days. The joy is palpable in the featured love stories this issue, from Beth and Ben’s boho extravaganza and Lauren and Elliot’s marine-themed celebrations to April and Neal’s dreamlike rural romance – and we couldn’t be happier to share them with you.

The Unbridled

We’ve also got a feast of fashion inspiration in store. One of my favourite childhood haunts, Penzance’s iconic Jubilee Pool was the sublime backdrop for our bridal fashion story ‘Love at the Lido’ – and its smooth white curves proved the perfect pairing for the minimal and super-chic bridal gowns currently making waves in wedding world. ‘Modern Love’ has more captivating contemporary fashions, captured in two extraordinary retreats nestled in the Cornish countryside and ‘The Look of Love’ offers hair and beauty inspiration to complete a fashion-forward W-day look.

For mums or guests seeking something special to wear for the upcoming festivities, ‘Best Dressed’ showcases an elegant collection of occasion wear crafted in Cornwall. And further style inspiration can be found in ‘La Dolce Vita’: a summery symphony of dreamy bridal wear, bountiful florals and luxe textures for an Italian inspired garden gathering.

Enchanted Brides

We celebrate the ongoing popularity of intimate weddings in ‘Small Weddings of Dreams’, where three couples share the stories of their pared-back big days in the wilds of Cornwall’s landscape. And, from rewilding to wild swimming, the latest self-care trends in 'Time for You' are all about immersing yourself in our stunning natural surrounds to boost a sense of pre-wedding wellbeing.
