We’re big-time reality TV fans in the Cosmo office and love to debrief our favourite shows over a doughnut (or two), especially anything to do with love and romance. We were glued to the first season of the Australian series of The Bachelor, cheering on Tim Robards as he chose Anna Heinrich as his soulmate. Fast forward almost four years, and this picture-perfect couple are engaged! Theirs is the ultimate real-life fairytale. We had the best day with the gorgeous Anna, helping her try on her first wedding dresses, from slinky and floaty to sparkly and show-stopping. Unsurprisingly, she looks magnificent in every single style – check out our exclusive fashion shoot with the bride-to-be and a recap of their love story from page 146. We’ve also been busy working on…

3D lace For a modern take on the lace dress, try appliqué flowers and embellishments. Pants A cool, laid-back alternative to a gown for a statement-maker. Metallic Sparkles and shimmering fabrics are a fresh, sophisticated option. Boho Floaty layers and romantic lace equal a relaxed-but-glam look. Voluminous Channel your inner princess with a full-skirted gown. Short Sweet, romantic and the perfect way to show off your heels.

badgley mischka mark badgley and james mischka, designers and founders

Why did you decide to launch Badgley Mischka? Mark & James: We really wanted to do our own thing and the American market was saturated in sportswear. We just jumped into it! We started our careers with one rack of 12 little black cocktail dresses. What made you decide to go down the wedding dress pathway? M & J: We started getting requests from customers like, ‘Can you do this dress in white for my wedding?’ We thought it was a great idea because we were ready to do bridal dresses. Our goal was to make white evening dresses to get married in. What do you love most about what you do? M & J: With evening clothes it’s really about fantasy – women can escape a little bit. They’re willing to indulge. They want…

When did your love of flowers begin? Very early on. I was one of those quiet little kids who spent a lot of time staring lovingly at plants, planting seeds and willing things to grow. My mum’s mum had such an incredible green thumb. She used to have a lush tropical rainforest-garden full of begonias, ferns and birdlife in St Ives in Sydney, and later had a stunning cold climate garden in Bowral. Her admiration for plants and flowers rubbed off on me, and I feel like I can hear her sage advice ringing in my ears when I’m in the garden or arranging flowers. Describe your floristry style. Romantic, unstructured, loose-style arrangements, which are (hopefully) evocative of a slightly willful garden. What are the most popular? Peonies are always one of…

felicity cook cake creator and designer

When did your love of baking begin? I used to love baking cakes as a child (well, I liked eating the cake batter!). I discovered cake-decorating by chance: I was running another business and working as a nanny on the side, and made a birthday cake for the little boy I cared for. After that, I had an unshakeable desire to learn more. When did you decide to launch your wedding cake business? I began Sugar Bee Cakes in July 2013, and expanded and rebranded as Felicity Cook in March 2017. My business now incorporates an array of creative opportunities, and offers clients a range of tools and products to help make their lives more imaginative. What do you love about what you do? I’m a creative at heart. People often mistake…

dean bentick director and principal photographer at inlighten photography

When did your love of photography begin? When I was a teenager, I found an old camera lens lying in a gutter, and I desperately pleaded with my mum to buy me a camera. We weren’t exactly well-off and it was a stretch for her, but she made it happen. Every day I thank my mum for making that sacrifice, because that’s truly where my love of photography began. When did you shoot your first wedding? I was about 17 years old. I’m now 41 and I’ve shot over 1000 weddings. I’m extremely lucky to have found my passion at such a young age. What do you love most about your job? The people. I’ve tried doing product and architecture photography and I just don’t have a passion for it. I absolutely…
