GRACE AND FLAVOUR 

Prepare to step into a world of prettiness. This issue, we’re embracing graceful gowns, covetable gems, glamorous décor and delectable flavours.  


A day on Park Farm, the iconic River Cottage HQ, provided the Wed team with a triple whammy of loveliness: delicious food, brilliantly colourful décor and breathtaking bridal gowns. See the results in ‘A Beautiful Life’, a spellbinding fusion of designer detail, lush textures of silk, lace and tulle, and nature in all its beguiling beauty. 




The fashion fix continues in ‘A State of Grace.’ Shot in the elegant setting of Pentillie Castle, the gorgeous imagery ushers in a mood of soft romance with its glamorous silhouettes and blissful, twinkling details.


Powderham Castle is the fairytale backdrop for opulent visions of pastel prettiness and Marie Antoinette inspired detail in ‘Ooh La La!’ On the subject of fairytales, we go in search of Devon’s charming rural venues in ‘For Love and Country’; from Elizabethan to Victorian, each of these bewitching country piles makes for a dreamy wedding venue. And it’s back to River Cottage for ‘Country Loving’: a delicious medley of lip-smacking foodie ideas, colour-pop décor and oodles of rustic charm.


Now summer is well on its way, here at Wed, we’re looking forward to long evenings, balmy days and celebrations in the great outdoors. In ‘Crazy For Canvas’, we revel in the joy of partying under canvas in all its fabulous forms. And, as we can’t count on being blessed with a balmy day here in good old Blighty, our weatherproofing special ‘Whatever the Weather’ prepares you for less-than-perfect wedding day weather.

Devon has played host to some wonderful weddings in recent months, from an opulent Indian celebration to a festival in the woods. See ‘Got Wed’ for love stories and inspiring parties aplenty.

We hope this latest Wed fix inspires a wedding that unashamedly reflects you and your other half – in every last detail. If you can’t wait until next issue, join us on Twitter and Facebook, and sign up to our reader newsletter for a regular dose of Wed inspiration.

Until next time!
