While we wait for our new editor, Ginny Cumming, to arrive early next year, I have stepped back into an editorial caretaker role, and I have to say, it's been fun! I started this magazine 31 years ago, and have worked closely with each of our editors during that time, including a decade with Ginny. So it’s an absolute joy for me, and all of our team, to welcome back Ginny after spending ten years in London, working as the editor on a range of…

In movies it may be funny, in reality it is cringeworthy to watch unfold. From white socks with a black tuxedo to completely mismatched suits (a no-no), wedding parties are a minefield of disasters just waiting to happen.
