“Love be­fore the wed­ding brings you to­gether. Love after the wed­ding keeps you so”

It’s that time of the year, when love reigns. I don’t mean the evanes­cent ro­man­tic fancy that teenagers and teenagers-at­heart get swayed by, but the deeper, richer and stronger bond that com­pels two peo­ple to com­mit their lives to each other.

Yes, wed­ding bells are ring­ing out loud and at The Col­lec­tion, we have nat­u­rally themed our is­sue to suit the sea­son.

Th­ese days, wed­dings are no longer the pre­dictable af­fairs that they were in our par­ents’ time. Cou­ples ty­ing the knot are look­ing to make the most spe­cial day in their lives a truly spec­tac­u­lar oc­ca­sion to re­mem­ber. They are most punc­til­ious even in their choice of venue. While va­ca­tion or des­ti­na­tion wed­dings have been the norm for some time now, brides and grooms are be­com­ing more ex­act­ing in their ex­pec­ta­tions.

In this is­sue of The Lux­ury Col­lec­tion, we bring you some of the most glam­orous and ex­otic des­ti­na­tions that will turn your wed­ding into that dream lux­ury event that you want it to be. From seven star so­phis­ti­ca­tion to a western cow­boy ranch wed­ding, to an ex­otic Ja­panese one…read on and ex­plore the one that best matches your fan­tasy.

After the wed­ding, the next ques­tion, of course is the hon­ey­moon. And for that we fea­ture a few truly dis­tinc­tive lux­ury va­ca­tion ex­pe­ri­ences span­ning cul­tures as dif­fer­ent as na­tive Amer­i­can, South­east Asian, and Euro­pean. Along­side, we also give you tips on how to look and feel your best on your spe­cial day. And some lux­ury gift­ing ideas, as well, that are in keep­ing with the tech­nol­ogy driven age that we live in.

Mov­ing from wed­dings to fam­i­lies, if you are look­ing for a fam­ily va­ca­tion des­ti­na­tion for next sum­mer, I would strongly rec­om­mend a trip to the land of the Vik­ings, Nor­way. Be­lieve me, it of­fers one of the most in­cred­i­ble travel ex­pe­ri­ences in the world. I was there in July and was truly over­whelmed by the ma­jes­tic man­ner it com­bines ad­ven­tur­ous ac­tion, scenic beauty, culi­nary plea­sure, and nat­u­ral com­mu­nion. A tad ex­pen­sive, but worth ev­ery penny.

For the rest, we fea­ture the trend­ing styles in haute cou­ture and haute joail­lerie as well as the lat­est to roll out from the lux­ury au­to­mo­bile garage – the Audi R7 Per­for­mance, to pre­cise. Read all about this car that packs in both un­bri­dled power and un­sur­passed beauty in this is­sue.

Let me now leave you to en­joy The Col­lec­tion, while also con­vey­ing my heart­felt best wishes for the up­com­ing sea­son of va­ca­tion and cel­e­bra­tion.

Party hard and shop harder!
