Welcome to our inspo-packed October-November issue! We’ve got showstopping dresses to rip up the dancefloor in, party-ready entertainment acts, the best venues to take over and make your own – and much, much more… just click here to read it for free without having to step outside
During the worry-fraught months of lockdown easing, the question we were asked most frequently on social media was: “Has the government given any indication of when dancing at weddings might be allowed again?”
Now that it’s firmly back on the agenda (thankfully), the time seemed right to focus on music and entertainment. We meet 15 of the country’s best acts, from soulful choirs that’ll give your guests goosebumps, to brilliant bands that’ll have the dancefloor jumping.
Getting dolled up to go ‘out-out’ is back with a bang, so it seemed appropriate that we pull out the stops in the wedding fashion stakes too. Scottish bridal stores nominate spotlight-stealing gowns in our ‘Be more bride!’ feature, while ‘Highland Romance’ is the fruits of our first photoshoot in over 18 months. We set dreamy dresses with tumbling tulle skirts and intricate appliqué against the majestic Perthshire hills.
Our mums’ style section revels in glamour too, as does our bumper beauty and wellbeing guide, where we cover everything from tweakments to personal training.
When we chat to newlyweds for our real weddings features (we have seven corkers this issue, in case you’re interested), very rarely do they have any regrets over how their big day played out – but when they do? It’s almost always that they wished they’d booked a videographer. Cue our focus on filmmakers that profiles 12 of Scotland’s most respected in the field. Whether you’re after a cinematic tearjerker or arty documentary, the crew we’ve assembled will see you right through to the end credits. We’ve got our popcorn at the ready…
