The Latest Cornwall Issue of Wed Magazine


Cornwall Wed Magazine - Issue 59


HAPPY DAYS

Whether you’re newly engaged and still swooning at the sparkler on your finger (congratulations!) or a seasoned Wed reader winging your way to the aisle, welcome to the new issue of Wed Magazine! Run by a tiny team in the far west of Cornwall, we like to see Wed as your constant companion on this incredibly exciting journey. From the glossy pages of the magazine to our information-packed website and social media platforms, we look forward to informing, inspiring and stirring butterflies of anticipation for the joy-filled times ahead.

This issue is all about romance. This extraordinary county never ceases to amaze me when it comes to hidden treasures and breathtaking settings to wed – and arriving at new venue Roswarne offered one of those ‘wow’ moments. Tucked away in the historic mining heart of the county, the lovingly restored Regency house offers elegant, light-filled spaces for a wedding – and made a perfect setting to showcase the romantic silhouettes currently taking the bridal world by storm. You’ll find light, airy skirts, statement sleeves and acres of chiffon and tulle in ‘New Romantics’.

Period influences and a palpable sense of timeless romance continues in ‘A Family Affair’, a dreamy styled shoot featuring ethereal blooms, the most beautiful gown and cherished moments amongst the meadow flowers of Pencarrow. ‘In Her Element’ showcases more out-of-this-world gowns against a canvas of lakes, woodland and abandoned engine houses at Kudhva on the edge of the north coast.

And you’ll find soul-stirring stories of love in our ‘Got Wed’ section. After the heartache and endless postponements of the past 18 months, it’s been wonderful to receive so many incredible weddings. We love them all, from the sun-drenched, laidback vibes of Lucy and Toby’s bohemian celebrations at Stennack Farm to the colour and laughter of Leanne and Ricky’s two-part wedding at Pengenna Manor. There were al fresco vows, dancing on a Cornish clifftop and the warm hues of the Californian desert at Sivan and Jamie’s gorgeous wedding on the Lizard Peninsula. And Megan and Jake chose their special place – Port Isaac – to throw a gorgeous festival themed wedding overlooking the coast. Each wedding draws on the beauty of this epic county – together with the passions and personalities of the happy couple – to create the most heart-warming celebrations of love and togetherness… something we all prize more highly than ever.

So here’s to love – and the party of your life as you celebrate your union with those you hold dear. We look forward to being there every step of the way to the happiest of days.
