Edward/Bella, also known by the portmanteau Bedward, is the central and canon relationship of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in the Twilight Series fandom.


After moving from sunny Phoenix to the always rainy and cloudy city of Forks, the sixteen-year-old young teenager Isabella Swan meets and falls in love with fellow the seventeen-year-old teenager Edward Cullen, adopted son of town doctor Carlisle Cullen. But what she didn't know was that Edward wasn't just any teenager, but a century-old vampire.


Twilight is known for being a gateway fandom for many; Bedward was a gateway ship. The relationship between Edward Cullen and Bella Swan makes up one-half of the love triangle in the Twilight series. There have been Ship Wars between Team Edward, shippers of Edward/Bella, and Team Jacob, shippers of Jacob Black and Bella.
