My Wedding - - NEWS -

It’s Septem­ber and Spring is in the air. I love Spring for many rea­sons – the soft light, the longer days, the fresh green shoots and colour­ful buds, the joy of be­ing able to open all the win­dows and breathe in crisp, beau­ti­ful fresh air.

With Spring-clean­ing un­der­way in homes and of­fices around the coun­try, I de­cided it was time to do a lit­tle of our own. This wasn’t go­ing to be a quick mop and vac­uum, though - whist throw­ing those win­dows open, we threw out the rule­book at the same time.

I felt it was about time wed­dings and all the an­cil­lary ser­vices and prod­ucts were por­trayed as beau­ti­fully in a mag­a­zine as they end up look­ing on the Big Day it­self. Wed­ding plan­ners and brides spend hours per­fect­ing their day, pho­tog­ra­phers and videog­ra­phers take care in fram­ing their sub­jects, florists and stylists work like de­mons to en­sure the per­fect set­ting – who are we to clut­ter their work into over­crowded pages that re­sem­ble a gos­sip tabloid? With that in mind, we’ve re­designed our logo, come up with a cover that is eas­ily iden­ti­fi­able and will look good on any cof­fee ta­ble, changed our cover and page stock, and re­vamped ev­ery sin­gle page!

Pretty things abound at wed­dings and there’s no rea­son why you can’t trans­pose all that love­li­ness into your ev­ery­day life. Plan­ning a spe­cial din­ner party – use the caterer who fed your wed­ding guests; or­gan­is­ing hubby’s com­pany Christ­mas party – get your stylist to dream up some in­ven­tive place set­tings, or your florist to cre­ate mag­nif­i­cent cen­tre­pieces. Your cake de­signer can whip up fab­u­lous kids’ birth­day cakes and your limou­sine com­pany would love to chauf­fer you on your next night out to the the­atre.

My Wed­ding is not only about wed­dings – it’s about stand­ing up and en­joy­ing the finer things in life. Hence our new tagline … be­cause love is for life.

I hope you en­joy the fresh new look, and that the ex­tra con­tent pro­vides you with hours of en­joy­able read­ing.
