SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL

Be still my beating heart! Do we have a breathtakingly beautiful issue in store for you! From daringly decadent dresses to luxe lingerie, chic cakes to sublime venues, we’ve compiled some of the prettiest wedding inspiration and weak-at-the-knees wonderful love stories yet.

This issue’s bridal fashion shoots have taken us to some of Devon’s most bewitching locations. We relished every moment of our time at Burgh Island Hotel shooting our bridal fashion special ‘Putting on the Glitz’. The art deco interiors made a suitably opulent setting to capture a selection of exquisitely embellished gowns and statement jewels.



From the remote vintage beauty of Burgh Island to the country charm of Combe House Hotel, it was a joy to spend a day in this divine setting with its charming interiors and picturesque grounds. ‘Love is in the Air’ paints visions of soft, romantic silhouettes and dainty details from silken bows to lace-edged veils.



Our adventures across Devon didn’t end there. On a sun-drenched afternoon, we ventured deep into the Raleigh Estate to sample the ‘Babes in the Woods’ experience – a truly unique hen party currently going down a storm in South Devon. If you’re struggling on the hen do front, take a look at ‘Let’s Hear it for the Girls’ for inspiration.



Ensure the party fever continues by putting some serious consideration into your wedding entertainment. We serve up our top tips for a party to remember in ‘Here Comes The Fun’. These silken pages also take you to some sublime secluded spots to tie the knot, from a magnificent restored Georgian manor house in the South to a scenic and stylish country hotel in the North.



Then there’s the love stories – this issue, the heart-melting weddings take us from an exotic beachside celebration in North Devon to a foot-stomping party in Tavistock. I hope they inspire an equally beautiful wedding of your own!
