WeLcome to our bright
and beautiful new issue,
bursting with inspiration
We’re grateful to our lovely couples for sharing their amazing weddings – and a
glance at their stunning photographs will make you realise how spectacularly
individual you can make your big day. When we ask for their advice to pass on
to readers, our couples often say ‘make sure the day is as individual as you are’,
or ‘only do what makes the two of you happy’.
So their stories are living proof that staying true to yourselves can add up to
a day of love and laughter. Julie and Lisa opted for the crazy backdrop of Walt
Disney World, entirely in keeping with their sense of humour, while Adam and
Daniel blended Pagan traditions with the majestic setting of a country house in
Devon for a spiritual ceremony that had guests communing with Mother Earth.
Our seaside brides, Amanda and Beth and Dee and Debs, remind us why
seascapes make the most glorious setting for a wedding – particularly if you can
get your photographer to chase you round a lighthouse! (Turn to page 62 to
ﬁnd out which of them ﬁrst met dressed as a cowgirl and a dog…)
And who knew that planning a wedding could be so much fun? Sam and
James enjoyed the run-up to theirs so much that they founded their own
wedding business to share their expertise with other couples.
We also have the latest fashion trends to wow the eye – including advice
from Luxury Life International’s James W Phillips, who
dropped by on his way back from Monaco.
And remember – looking good is about feeling good,
and not about bending to pressure to look a certain way.
We love Alice Hiley’s take on the ‘body positive’, as she
calls time on crash dieting and ‘shedding for the wedding’
and encourages us to celebrate our diﬀerences.
So there you have it – plenty to tuck into. And if it’s all
getting a bit much, our Fonda’s ready to bolster you up
with the very best of advice… Have an awesome summer!
