Well the party season’s nearly upon us, but
the good thing about putting together this
magazine is that there’s always something
to celebrate. And wow, do our couples do it
This issue we’re going big, bold and
beautiful with Charles and Alan’s spectacular Moulin Rouge themed
extravaganza. What a way to share your joy with the world – and bring the
town centre to a standstill! We take our hats oﬀ to you (and hope some rose
petal confetti with ribbons and a little diamanté might fall out!) because you
sure know how to make everyone feel the love.
Our couples are amazing for so many reasons and it’s a privilege to share
their stories with you. As many of you will know, declaring your love for each
other does not always sit well with the family, and Fay and Michelle take us
through some diﬃcult decisions on planning the day without important
family members who could not accept their shared future. ‘Be true to
yourself’ they say – and we couldn’t agree more.
We’re also hugely inspired by Zoe and Sarah who didn’t have the easiest
beginning, getting to know each other during the onset of Zoe’s illness.
Their joyous event shows the love and laughter that gave their married life
‘the perfect start’.
And we loved hearing from Andi and Phil, who got married on the tenth
anniversary of their civil partnership. That’s a real reason to toast a winning
team! Their story takes us back to the days before meeting on social media,
when small talk was a necessary part of the game. (Out of
interest, has anyone else met over a triﬂe bowl?)
So before we let you enjoy the issue, let us wish you
all the best snuggly eves and ﬂamboyant nights of the
season. Collect your fashion tips before you dress to
impress, and your essential advice from agony auntie
Fonda… though on second thoughts, who needs life
lessons from that bad girl..?
Until next time – enjoy!
