Wel­come

You and Your Wedding - - Welcome - et n Ed­i­tor-at-large

I’ve been work­ing in the won­der­ful world of wed­dings for… let’s just say, quite a few years. Peo­ple of­ten ask me whether I get bored of see­ing the same old thing. With­out miss­ing a beat, I al­ways say no – be­cause it’s never “the same old thing”. Whether we’re talk­ing about a new trend in cakes, some gamechang­ing tech, a just-opened unique venue or an in­no­va­tive way to serve food, wed­dings are evolv­ing all the time. That goes for fash­ion, my area of ex­per­tise, too. Wed­ding-dress trends change as quickly as main­stream fash­ion. Just think how far we’ve come from Princess Di-style meringues! There’s so much choice in terms of style, fabric and price – and that choice is just get­ting big­ger. We make sure you see the best of what’s avail­able in our fash­ion pages in ev­ery is­sue. We’ve just come back from shoot­ing at the fab­u­lous Ku­ra­mathi Is­land Re­sort in the Mal­dives and we took more than 50 dresses in our suit­cases! (Any of you get­ting mar­ried abroad, don’t worry about pack­ing your dress, the creases will drop out.) We hope you en­joy the re­sults. a par­adise is­land with mod­els and a pho­tog­ra­pher, so while we were there we also shot some sun-kissed bri­dal beauty looks that you can see on page 212. And talk­ing of trends, this is­sue we have all kinds of hot-off-the-press treats for you, in­clud­ing six pages of cake ideas (p94), a new way to hon­ey­moon (p224), the rise of bride’s speeches, and how to ace them (p146), and some ex­cit­ing beauty treat­ments no mat­ter what kind of day you’re plan­ning – as we’ve al­ways said, it’s your day, your way.
