We’re revelling in timeless style this issue. From divine dresses and fresh-from-a-fairytale venues to the photographs that will enshrine the love, joy and laughter of your wedding day for years to come, let us inspire a wedding that just gets more beautiful with the passage of time.


Let’s start with the fashion. Your wedding dress should be an item of clothing that you’ll love forever: a frock that still melts your heart a little when you’re gazing at your wedding photos in your twilight years. We’ve made it our mission to help you find it.


‘Enduring Love’ sums up the mood. Captured against the beguiling backdrop of Burgh Island, the galaxy of sleek screen starlet-esque designs and exquisite lace creations are endlessly covetable and oh-so timeless. The breathtakingly beautiful setting of Shilstone House proves the picture-perfect backdrop for our fashion story ‘Sweet Reverie’. Visions of intricate lace, light tulle and pastel-pretty petals evokes a soft and dreamy sense of romance that will look as fresh and fabulous in years to come as it does today. 


Nothing sets the timeless tone of a wedding quite like your choice of venue. If your fantasies are made of fairytale-princess castles or elegant country houses, don’t miss ‘True Romance’.


We’ve said it before – and we’ll say it again: think carefully about your choice of wedding photographer. You simply can’t overestimate how much you’ll treasure those images once the big day has passed. ‘Snap Happy’ serves up some expert guidance. 


And bid farewell to singledom in style with a wonderful hen weekend. We outline some fabulous ideas for having fun and making cherished memories in ‘Hen Heaven.’
