Can you believe it’s autumn already? After such a scorching Queensland summer we’re loving the fact that we can now get serious about showing off some wedding dresses that cover up a bit more (case in point: our gorgeous front cover dress from White Lily Couture). To see other beautiful styles that the designers of Queensland are predicting will be big this season, check out our autumn fashion feature (starting on p.54). We’ve also got you covered when it comes to sorting out the seating plan (arguably the most difficult job of any wedding – p.145), your bridal waltz (p.163), and destination celebrations on the Sunshine Coast (p.81) and in the Whitsundays (p.119).

VINTAGE QB We stumbled across this old issue of QB recently and had to share it with you. The summer 2003/2004 edition features a very young – and seriously beautiful – Catherine McNeil. In case you’ve been living under a rock, she went on to become a bona fide supermodel and has worked for everyone from Yves Saint Laurent and Dior to Givenchy and Chanel. THEY CALL ME BRUCE Meet yet another beloved fur baby from the QB team, Bruce the boxer. Our digital manager, Nikki, is his ‘owner’, but it’s pretty clear who’s really in charge. Bruce has only just turned one, but he’s already 40kg – and still has quite a bit of growing to do. No wonder he causes such havoc when he comes into the office. But we love…

Inconceivable!” Ginny, editor “Gone with the Wind is definitely my favourite romantic movie of all time, but for movies with weddings in them, I also love The Philadelphia Story and High Society.” Emily, feature writer…
