Nicole's Summer 2012/13 editor's letter
Although October is officially the most popular month to say ‘I do’ in Australia, we think summer has a special place in the hearts of Queensland brides. Not only are couples drawn to the balmy weather and holiday mood, that magical hour as the sun sets lingers so much longer in summer, giving your photographer the opportunity to capture something really amazing.
With that in mind we’ve put a spotlight on locations and outdoor weddings this issue. To enjoy a little fresh air, check our major showcase starting on page 166 which also includes a round-up of some of the most exciting trends to look out for in 2013. One is colour, which we loved using on our cover. The talent behind this gorgeous gown, Anne Bertossi and her team at Paddington Weddings, are currently celebrating 20 wonderful years at their charming Paddington studio and workroom. Big congratulations! We also headed to the forest this issue with the whimsical and gorgeous feature on page 160. One of my favourites from the incredible team at Styled Events. And while I’m on the topics of favourites, I’m offically swooning over the jewellery in our Hidden Gems feature (p.106). I have updated my wish list yet again!
Finally, don’t miss your chance to win a $4000 wedding at the historic Grand View Hotel. You’ll fall in love with the beautiful bayside location and charming history of this unique venue.
