The Devon Edition of Wed Magazine
Devon Wed Magazine - Issue 17
As well as a to-die-for dress, fabulous food, soul-stirring music and a whole lotta love, the modern wedding celebration is brimming with one overriding feature: personality. This issue is bursting with truly one-of-a-kind weddings, from the bewilderingly beautiful love stories of 'Got Wed' to our special feature 'Unique, C'est Chic!', which is full of individual and unforgettable celebrations that may well inspire a very personal party of your own.
This movement towards personality-filled weddings has touched every detail - including the rings. The region's top jewellery experts share their guidance on finding an oh-so 'you' symbol of your union in 'A Design for Life'.
We're also embracing the drama of Devon's landscape. Our bridal fashion story 'Swept Away' embraces the blissed-out beauty of a wedding on Devon's coastline. Think free-spirited fashions, acres of lace and accessories speckled with shells captured in the insanely beautiful setting of Ocean Kave in Westward Ho! In contrast, the cool glamour of 'Golden Touch' celebrates sleek silhouettes, gilt-y pleasures and a stylish do in the country in the secluded climes of Ever After: A Dartmoor Wedding. And, for fashion inspiration for your mini maids, don't miss 'Little Mix', shot at Cothay Manor, which showcases playful and pretty looks for oh-so adorable attendants.
In 'Greener Pastures', we go in search of picture-perfect spots to get wed in Devon's rolling countryside, from the wilds of Dartmoor to the rolling hills of North Devon. And, captured in Croyde Bay, 'Sea of Love' is awash with dreamy vintage styling inspiration for a wedding by the sea.
Don't forget to join us on Facebook and Twitter - and keep a close eye on wedmagazine.co.uk - for fresh and fabulous party planning inspiration. And remember: keep it personal.
