FORTY ISSUES? How on Earth did that happen? It’s wild to think back to when we published the first issue of the magazine (waaaaay back in January 2015!) and how much has changed since then. I can now to look at all those magazine stacked on my shelf and realise just how much content we’ve produced, just how many people have read a copy and just how many weddings have been influenced by it. Blows my damn mind!

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what the wedding industry will look like when all this Covid crap is finally fully behind us. Will lots of people still choose to have smaller gatherings? Will elopements continue to be popular? Or will people go entirely the other way and want to have the biggest, most ostentatious party ever?

Staying Power: Making Your Wedding Make Up Last All Day

Ensuring that your make-up looks as good as it did at the end of the day as it did when you first applied it is an art form, and never is this more important than on your wedding day. Makeup artist Joyce Connor is here with her top tips to make your make-up last all day

This is one of the biggest days of your life, so as cheesy and cliché as it sounds, you are going to want to look your best. My years of experience as a make-up artist, but especially with brides, mean that I have become an expert in creating looks that last. If you want your handiwork to last all day, here are a few tricks of the trade…

One of the biggest issues you may face is keeping your make-up looking fresh through the tears.

Nerves also have the knack of making you cry, as can memories of those who you love and miss, and who you would have wanted to share your special day with you.

Coloured Gems, Skulls & Custom Engraving: Alternative Engagement & Wedding Ring Ideas

Rings: Sofia Zakia

If you’re reading this, the likelihood is that you don’t want your wedding to be super traditional. Maybe you’re wearing a coloured gown, sashaying down the aisle to your favourite metal song or putting skulls on the tables instead of flowers. All of these things, and many more, are really fun ways to showcase your individuality. However after the wedding itself is over, none of these things – however creative and fun – will exist in your everyday life.

You’re putting all this effort into crafting a one-of-a-kind, unique to you day, so why would you then have the ring you’ll be wearing for the rest of your life as anything other than just as unique as you are?

If you’re on the look out for a designer who can bring your unique engagement ring or wedding band vision vision to life then look no further…
