editor’s letter

Six months is a long time. In six months many of life’s biggest events can happen, such as buying a first home, be two-thirds of the way towards welcoming a new baby, or get engaged, plan and celebrate a wedding. Six months is also the amount of time it took us to put together this issue of Complete Wedding Sydney, scouring the wedding industry from top to bottom and hunting out those suppliers who can help make your day truly magical. In the last six months I celebrated a birthday, a Christmas, the arrival of a new cousin as well as a best friend from high school’s new bub, a friend’s engagement, a wedding, a minor operation and a three-month visit from my youngest sister who lives in England.

bridal bazaar

Heather Anschau, editor at Wedded Wonderland, offers her take on this year’s hottest trend, the bridal bazaar: a magical hotpot of colours and patterns perfect for a day with a difference. “At Wedded Wonderland, we never do things in half measures, which is why I’ve embraced the bazaar trend with such passion. It’s all about exoticism, romance and mystery with golds, jewel-toned colour palettes and rich textures. To interpret this trend for a bride, it’s important to layer.
