from the editor

It’s so lovely to be back in Queensland – and back at Queensland Brides. After spending the past 11 years in London, it seems very fitting that my first editor’s letter should appear in the winter edition! Catching up with people in the bridal world – both old friends and new associates – is a real pleasure, and it’s great to see the industry in such talented hands. Some of these hands were hard at work at our beauty icons photo shoot (see the pretty results on page 58).We enlisted the help of some brilliant hair and makeup artists, and the energy in the studio was magic. Shooting the front cover was another great day, with a fab team (see below) – you can actually win an incredible $10,000 package…

Long sleeves Here in Australia, summer is slowly disappearing and temperatures are starting to drop. It’s the perfect time to embrace the trend for a practical and oh-so stylish long-sleeved gown. The growing trend for elegant long sleeves proves that wedding gowns don’t have to be strapless. Pastels Once upon a time a non-white wedding dress was a big no-no, but for the modern wedding, gowns come in a rainbow of colours that are flattering to different skin tones and tastes. A big trend emerging from New York International Bridal Week is pastels. Gowns in icy blues, pale greens and blush tones are on-trend but totally timeless. Ethereal and überfeminine, wedding gowns in whispering pastels were a highlight of NYIBW. Old Hollywood-inspired Who wouldn’t want to look like a silver screen starlet on their wedding day? Here…

veils unveiled

“Supposedly, back in the day when arranged marriages were all the rage, the bride’s face was covered right until the last minute, so it would be too late for the groom to run off if he didn’t like the look of her!” A wedding veil is pretty much as traditional as you can get when it comes to bridal accessories, but its origins are somewhat of a mystery. It’s thought that the veil predates the wedding dress by centuries. Some say it goes back to the days when a groom would capture the woman of his choice and carry her off – with a blanket thrown over her head. Another explanation is that supposedly, back in the day when arranged marriages were all the rage, the bride’s face was covered right…

don’t stop the music

“Like any party, the right tunes will set the scene and help you create the perfect atmosphere for the night (and day) of your life.” There are so many things to think about when it comes to planning a wedding: the dress, the seating plan, the menu, the ceremony… the list goes on. With all of these important things to tick off the list, music can often be an afterthought. But it’s just as important. Like any party, the right tunes will set the scene and help you create the perfect atmosphere for the night (and day) of your life. And therefore a bit of thought and effort are paramount. To put you on the right track (geddit?), we’ve compiled a list of beautiful songs to make sure your wedding is…
