A NEW DAWN

As I write, Covid restrictions are being relaxed across the country. We can enjoy the sweet pleasures of life once again, from being able to hug our families and visit our grandparents to meeting friends inside our favourite coffee shop. At last there is light, liberty and togetherness on the horizon. And we're hoping, with every fibre of our beings, that big, joy-filled weddings can take place again in the very near future. I, for one, cannot wait to hear all your wonderful wedding stories after the heartache of the past year.

This issue, we're celebrating this new hope. 'Once Upon a Dream' sets the uplifting mood; bathed in light, enchanting styling and uber-glam bride and groom bring the romance of an Italian wedding to the heart of the English countryside.

Nothing symbolises new hope quite like the bounty of spring - and 'Love in Bloom' is a glorious celebration of the season, a carnival of flowers creating a breathtaking scene against the charm-packed backdrop of Rock Farm. There's more wow-worthy floral inspiration in 'Flower Power' and top tips on seasonality, symbolism and personalising your wedding blooms in 'Garland Glossary.'

There's newness galore at Devon's bridal boutiques. In 'Something New', you'll find contemporary clean lines through to boho vibes and dreamy, tulle-filled gowns, while 'Working the Groom' showcases the latest looks for the man of the moment.

There's many more contemporary and creative ideas to inspire your own dream day, from favours and ceremonies to gorgeous beachside shoots spanning the north coast to the south. We also celebrate the beauty of a modern white wedding, from high glamour laced with gold at a country estate to pared-back and relaxed in a Devon idyll.

And, in 'Got Wed,' you'll find a sense of hope captured in the most heartwarming love stories. From Niamh and Conor's '80s-tastic country bash to Elizabeth and Ian's scaled down winter festivities in their local pub, the palpable joy of these crazy-in-love couples makes me feel full of hope for happy days ahead.
