Welcome to the new Devon issue of Wed Magazine! Can you believe it's been 10 years since we first launched in Devon? Since then we've seen hundreds of beautiful brides and gorgeous grooms, met so many super suppliers, seen trends change and weddings of all colours and styles up and down the county. In that time, there are only two things haven't changed, in fact: your weddings have always been full of personality, and Devon's wedding industry has continued to blossom.
This issue is a celebration of those past 10 years, and of all the wonderful things happening at Devon weddings. So whether you're newly engaged and at the start of your wedding-planning journey, or just weeks away from your big 'I do' moment, take a moment, take a breath, and take a look through our 10th anniversary issue.
Yarner House gave us a stunning backdrop for a our bridal fashion story, 'What Dreams Are Made Of , making for striking images that whispered rural romance. We've got you covered when it comes to gorgeous bridal wear this issue, including seeing more colour gliding down the aisle and everything from jumpsuits and capes to princess silhouettes, with modern romantic gowns that are guaranteed to wow.
Our gorgeous grooms haven't been forgotten either, with a grooms wear section bringing together pastel colours and accessories du jour, while those wanting a personalised or bespoke wedding ring will get ideas aplenty. There's inspiration for every type of wedding thanks to shoots ranging from industrial-chic styling and bold and bright bohemian weddings to autumnal celebrations with a Jane Austen twist.
When it comes to practical advice, we help with how to plan a wedding quickly with advice from those who've done it, as well as dealing with awkward guests and guest list etiquette, themed treasure hunts to keep kids entertained, and our pick of the most heavenly hen dos and minimoons in Devon. Plus for a totally Devonshire wedding, we shine a light on some of the best bridal suppliers in the county, from dressmakers and ringmakers to bridesmaids and accessories designers.
And of course, the ultimate stars of this issue - of every issue in the past 10 years, in fact - are you, our amazing readers whose weddings we showcase in Got Wed. From Sammy and CJ's winter wedding replete with sparklers, fire pits and mulled wine, to India and Ben's quintessentially English wedding in the dappled sunlight, your big days always astound and amaze us, and give our brides-to-be inspiration galore.
Finally, our 10th anniversary issue is a bumper one full of competitions! So whether you want to win a wedding cake, a minimoon or your wedding stationery - plus plenty more fantastic prizes - they're all up for grabs.
Here's to the next 10 years, and beyond!
