July/August 2018
Can you believe we’re half way through the year already? Time just seems to fly by and before you know it Christmas will be here! I hope your 2018 has been amazing so far, I’ve been busier than ever exploring new places, meeting fabulous new people and I even challenged myself to do a charity skydive – eek! What’s more I’ve just returned from a luxurious break in the Dominican Republic with my wonderful mum, it was great being able to relax, spend some quality time together and try some exhilarating excursions.

Travelling is one of my biggest passions but with so many gorgeous places to see it can be difficult choosing just one. To help give you heaps of inspiration for your own post-vows getaway we’ve put together a jam-packed honeymoon section including Mexico on page 118, Dominica on page 120 and if you’re after something more local then we’ve got Devon covered too on page 123.

If you’d like your wedding featured in the magazine then don’t forget to send me an email at melissab@kdmediapublishing.com

Enjoy the issue and happy planning!
