In this month’s bumper celebration of wedded bliss, we talk to loved-up couples who enjoyed the biggest day of their lives in 2018 and get some insider info on organising the main event. Not content with bringing you all the news that matters, your favourite magazine’s history of matchmaking is revealed as we talk to couples who met through the pages of GCN. Alongside a one-stop directory of wedding day info, we have some handy etiquette tips for attendees and a history of the battle for same-sex marriage around the globe. We continue our series of interviews with LGBT+ asylum seekers in the Direct Provision system and author Darragh Martin speaks about his new book, Future Popes of Ireland. It’s a jam-packed October issue!
