The Cornwall Edition of Wed Magazine
Cornwall Wed Magazine - Issue 63
Whether you’re newly engaged (congratulations!) or already a dedicated reader winging your way to the aisle, we’d like to welcome you to the new issue of Wed Magazine!

An incredibly special chapter in your life lies before you and, while wedding planning can be beyond-words exciting, it can also be overwhelming. These silken pages are designed to offer you a pocket of peace – timeout from the online wedding world and its endless grids, websites and mood boards – to immerse yourself in the joyful times that lie ahead.
Liam Arthur Photography
Totally dedicated to Cornwall, each issue of Wed is packed to the brim with the dreamiest content, from must-read features to gorgeous shoots and joy-filled weddings – all captured against the county’s breathtaking landscapes. We’re proud to showcase the talents of an incredible team of wedding creatives, not to mention Cornwall’s seriously stunning wedding venues (head to our Venues Guide on p.113 for a showcase of Cornwall’s finest).

This issue, our features range from a planning Q&A and the latest wedding trends to choosing those all-important rings, entertainment ideas for all ages and mixing up your wedding day timeline – sunset ceremony, anyone? And prepare for a bridal fashion fix as we showcase the hottest new bridal gowns landing in Cornwall’s boutiques.

You’ll find some gorgeous examples in our bridal fashion story She’s The One, which features a selection of modern romantic gowns in the elegant climes of new wedding venue, Polstrong Manor. In Love Struck, you’ll find a gorgeous carnival of blousy blooms, seriously chic dresses and pared-back styling in the beautiful setting of Boconnoc.

For summer styling inspiration, Mediterranean Dreams is bursting with zesty hues, floral details and Italian kitchen garden vibes in the sun-kissed gardens of Carwinion House. And, on the edge of Mount’s Bay, The Godolphin offers a dream canvas for a scheme of coral and pink with a luxe boho edge in Shore Thing.

Then there’s the weddings. From Jules and Kieran’s DIY wedding in the heart of the Cornish countryside to Sarah and Tom’s colourful tipi wedding on the cliffs of Porthleven – each wedding is filled with so much joy, love and personality – not to mention Cornwall at its most beautiful.
