When the US legalised same-sex marriage in every state, Facebook was flooded with rainbow profile pictures and supportive status updates. It was a beautiful thing indeed. So special that it inspired our story Love For All (p198), which features everything from the legalities to tips and tricks on how to plan a same-sex wedding in Australia today. Because we want Cosmo Bride to be an inspiring, fun-filled and practical resource for every bride and groom who loves love as much as we do. We’ve also packed the issue with pages (and pages!) of stunning real-wedding photos, and a fashion capsule so you can plan all your outfits, from the kitchen tea to the afterparty. There’s also gift-registry inspiration, plenty of expert advice and honeymoon hotspots that will have you wanting to book…

This is going to sound clichéd, but I’ve loved weddings ever since I can remember. I played weddings all the time and with anyone who would play with me as a child, but it wasn’t until I was a wedding planner that I fell truly, madly, deeply in love. It was my very first bride that made me realise I could have an impact on the most important day in someone’s life. The rest is history! My brother bought a wedding venue and three weeks in asked me to join him on this business venture. At the time I was a project manager at one of Australia’s largest financial institutions. I was climbing the corporate ladder, but always knew something was missing. I quit my job and jumped in the deep…

Like many young girls, my childhood was full of tulle and tutus. But I came away from my dance lesson days with something much more powerful than fond childhood memories: my love of fashion was found in the details of the glorious costumes! About 10 years ago, I put myself through uni by modelling part-time. I had curves, and so ended up working as a bridal model most of the time. I fell in love with the wedding industry from the other side of the catwalk, especially with the romanticism. Eventually that led to Homebodii, which was born alongside my baby girl, Sibella. During my pregnancy I searched for a robe and pajamas that I could have with me in hospital, and although functionality was key, I still wanted to feel stylish…

I was teaching beauty therapy in 2003 when I aspired to own a salon. My goal? To offer high-quality treatments and customer care in a beautiful environment. I’m definitely a morning person and take time for myself in the morning before work. I get up at 6am and meditate for about an hour before practising yoga or heading out for a run around Centennial Park. I eat a big breakfast and reply to emails, and often squeeze in a meeting before my first client arrives. I see four to five clients each day, do occasional press interviews and staff-training activities – as well as everything a small-business owner does for the day-to-day running of a business – finishing about 8pm. I love doing facials. They make me happy because I meditate and…

SAVING FOR A HONEYMOON? Stack up some vintage suitcases and make your own ‘holiday’ stickers of your favourite destinations. WATER BABY If your wedding has a beachy theme, choose a giant bottle or vase, and have little pieces of paper that guests can write on then roll up into scrolls using ribbon. YOU’RE SO CLASSIC Bring back good ol’ découpage by covering a box with black and white photos of you and your partner, then lacquering it with clear, glossy paint. It will double as a keepsake for your wedding trinkets later. Say cheese Have a station with a Polaroid camera and encourage guests to snap a photo to add to their card! DIY BUCKET LIST INSPIRATION If your wedding has a rustic, country vibe, pile up silver tin buckets. Then you can ask your guests what’s on their…
