I have the pleasure of seeing many weddings cross my desk but I was lucky enough to be part of one myself recently. Playing bridesmaid at good friends’ Kelly and Brendan’s Brisbane celebration was a real reminder about just how much effort, energy and planning goes into pulling off one very special day.

OUR DREAM TEAM From left, editor Nicole, model Jasmin, hair stylist Margaret from Hare's Hair, makeup artist Abigael Johnston and photographer Nat from Milque Photography and Films.

Or at least that you know when to zip it and just listen. THE ABILITY TO MAKE ME LAUGH And I quote: “I know I get myself wound up.
