Romance is a rush. And I’ve been swept up in it from the moment I started flicking through our shortlist of real weddings for this issue. So much real, raw emotion and elation. So many fairytale locations. So many gorgeous gowns! What makes a look or a moment ‘romantic’ is hard to quantify but for me it’s a feeling that envelopes you when you see something (or someone) that makes your breath catch and your heart skip a beat. A score of soaring classical music starts up somewhere in the distance and a wave of joy washes over you.You start smiling.You may even be tempted to say “awww”. But maybe that’s just me...

SOME VINTAGE GLAMOUR Giulia Ponticello from Hair and Makeup Artistry Giulia was behind the vintage-inspired beauty look, utilising flawless airbrushing techniques for a photo-ready finish.Alexandra's defined eye was beautifully complemented by a plum-hued lip, a statement bridal alternative which referenced the saturated colour of the bouquet. A BOLD BLOOM It’s no secret that brides (as well as the QB office!) have a thing for peonies, so what better bloom to grace our cover than this beloved favourite! Cursed with a relatively short availability period,we were ecstatic that Geraldine of Bouquet Boutique was able to source the stunning plum variety seen on our cover.A white satin ribbon cocooning the base was the perfect understated touch.

lusting over lace

It has become iconic, a traditional fabric that has woven its way into fashion, decorating and, of course, weddings. From lace table runners and backdrops to stationery and veils, lace has truly cemented itself as an elegant, timeless wedding staple.

It was the first fabric interpretation of its kind which required time-consuming loom work, and had a price tag to match.
