“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!
