Your Day, Yours Truly
whether you have been a couple for six months or 12 years, your wedding heralds the start of a lifelong covenant to love, to comfort, to honour and to keep the other in joy and in sorrow, in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health and to be faithful to each other till death do you part. It marks your transition from Miss to Mrs, from making solo decisions to making joint ones, and yes, from having one family to two. So it is only fitting to mark the momentous occasion in the most magnificent and intimate way possible. It is for this reason that this issue is dedicated to all things bespoke.
