 ALL ABOUT YOU

Newly engaged? Congratulations! We’re thrilled to welcome you to Wed. Totally dedicated to the incredibly beautiful county of Devon, we like to think of Wed as your supportive and inspiring companion on this oh-so exciting journey to the aisle! We fill our pages with the finest local venues and suppliers, as well as swoon-worthy inspiration, must-read features and planning advice from the experts – and, our favourite bit: a super-gorgeous selection of readers’ weddings from across the county.






Here at Wed, we’re all about throwing out the rulebook and embracing your unique and beautiful selves on your big day. Before you dive headlong into planning, pinning and gown gazing, it’s time to cast aside those preconceptions of what you think a wedding should be like. Modern couples are increasingly seeking to stamp their personalities onto their day: whether it’s stealing away for a ‘just for two’ celebration, being flanked by an all-male ‘bride squad’, donning a jumpsuit or being given away by your dog – your wedding is your opportunity to celebrate who you are as a couple as well as your love.




Whatever your wedding vibe, you’ll find dazzling inspiration for your wedding décor in these pages. From a heavenly hanging garden of romance, brimming with abundant florals, stunning details and even a floating cake in ‘Garden of Plenty’, to the pared-back organic aesthetic of ‘Super Natural’, there’s plenty of pretty for couples keen to immerse their guests in the beauty of nature and Devon’s gloriously green backdrop. For starry-eyed style, ‘My Moon and Stars’ pairs light, ethereal shades with celestial accents, while ‘Softly, Softly’ blends a romantic rural palette with macramé, dreamcatchers and boho luxe touches. And, for those seeking a lovingly laidback wedding in the heart of Devon, ‘Country Love’ serves up some fabulous food for thought for a character-filled village pub wedding.



 

In ‘Got Wed’, we meet seven couples who poured their hearts and souls into throwing brilliantly individual weddings, taking us from the shores of south Devon to the rugged drama of the north, from the wild flower meadows of the west to the sun-soaked cornfields of the east. From Luka and Ash’s breathtaking day in the cool, industrial climes of Ocean Studios and Katie and Tom’s insanely romantic wedding at enchanting Pynes House to Steph and Laurence’s colourful rock ‘n’ roll celebration amidst the rural panoramas of The Oak Barn, each couple took their personalities and passions as the starting point for creating the day of their dreams. And, although they differ in terms of frocks, colour schemes and style, all our couples share a common thread: true love.






Remember, you don’t have to wait until the next magazine hits the shelves for your Wed fix – head to our website, sign up to our Wed newsletter, and join us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest for all the latest from Wed world.

See you there!
