Being amazed by the constantly evolving world of weddings, keeping our finger on the pulse and looking forward to raising the curtain on the next big thing!
We aim to reflect the region's diversity from the coast to the countryside, market town to city centre and the wealth of local talent on the doorstep. You don't have to go far to discover a wedding gem, whether it's a fabulous venue, go-to bridal boutique or wow-factor supplier, and we like to shout about it.
I love, love, love all the fabulous real weddings. I never tire of hearing from the region's newlyweds and hearing all about their big days. No two are ever exactly the same and sharing all the personal touches and special details with our readers is always a joy.
It would be an intimate affair with all my closest family and friends, delicious food, great wine, music and mad dancing with my three lovely daughters to all our favourite Mumford & Sons tracks.
Marcus Mumford of course! I'd be extra cheeky and ask him to sing for his supper as live music always goes down a storm at a wedding.
Cake-eating, gin lover and Sunday roast supremo - probably more than five words, but who's counting!
I went to an outdoor showing of Bridesmaids recently armed with a picnic hamper, fizz and nibbles. Even though I'd seen the film umpteen times it was great to laugh out loud with abandon.
Chocolate, a notebook (if it's not written down, it's forgotten!) and my car – I hate driving, but it's the price of living in a rural village with no public transport!
A Sunday roast surrounded by my family with an open fire to snuggle around afterwards and a willing volunteer to do the washing up.
At home in the country or by the sea – there's something very therapeutic about the sound of breaking waves.
