I hope you all had the most gloriously relaxing Christmas - were there any festive engagements around your way?
Now don't worry, you're not required to peel yourself away from Netflix and the family sized box of Quality Street just yet, but I just wanted to pop by today to let you know that our January/ February issue is available for pre-order from today!
Oh my goodness, this cover. Some of you may already recognise this total fox as Sophie from Crown and Glory. My BFF, my collaborator and an all round wonderful human. Being her maid of honour in September was one of my highlights of 2017 and so OF COURSE we had to feature her wedding in the magazine and stick her pretty face on the cover. Thank you to Devlin Photos for totally nailing this shot.
WHAT. A. BABE.
I'm pretty darn excited for you to see this issue. Not just because it's packed full of the 11 exclusive real weddings, a stunning sequin photo shoot shot at Dreamland and advice a-plenty to help get you amped up and inspired to plan your wedding in your own way... BUT one of my favourite body positive role models has written you a little sommat sommat too.
I've been obsessed with Megan Jayne Crabbe (aka @bodypositvepanda) ever since I discovered her. I bought her book as soon as it was available and reading her words never fails to make me feel GOOD. And she must be doing something right because she's amassed nearly ONE MILLION followers on Instagram!
So obviously, she is a super busy and in-demand lady so I wasn't sure she'd even reply when I messaged her to ask if she'd be interested in writing a piece for the magazine. If there was one person I wanted to pen something about weight loss and weddings for our January issue it was her. Now not only did she reply right away, BUT SHE SAID YES. The article she's written is INCREDIBLE, inspiring and the perfect antidote for all the weight loss/ detox/ new year new you bullshit that is heading our way as soon as January 1st rolls around.
The illustrations in her article were created for us by the super talented Jasmine Floyd (I love them so much I might have to get them printed out to hang in my office). I can not wait for you to read this one.
Who wants a little cheeky preview of what else you'll find inside the issue? Oh go on then...!
Honestly, so much radness is heading your way...
And that's just the tiniest taster. 165 pages of full-on alternative wedding inspiration will be winging it's way to you with just the click of a button.
