October/November 2018

I must admit that I’m not a fan of winter. I was born to live in a hot climate! But there is something about this time of year that I find quite comforting, and it’s the perfect time to familiarise yourself with the Danish concept of hygge.
Not only do I love lighting scented candles in my home and switching on the fairylights as soon as it gets dark, but I really like this look and feel for a seasonal wedding. Autumnal nuptials are blessed with darker evenings that feel so romantic dotted with festoon lighting, and rustic barns decorated in soft subtle shades are the venues of choice at this time of year, providing the perfect space for those candles. Winter weddings get the benefit of guests huddled together, toasting marshmallows and spelling out your newly married initials with mini sparklers – not to mention wrapping up against the cold in the cutest faux fur stoles and accessories. So it’s these small seasonal wonders that I will be holding on to this year in order to get me through the colder months, and it’s this theme that has inspired my moodboard of shopping buys this issue. Oh, and for that little bit of summer sun, I will just have to turn to our honeymoon section on page 97!

Until next issue...
