We are a little bit excited here at Hello May today (and a little sleepy too). We’ve been burning the midnight oil getting the debut issue of Hello May ready for you, our lovely reader and you, our talented vendor to download and read. We’ve channelled our collective 25 years in the magazine trade into this little (or not so little) project and have searched high and low for unique content and creative vendors and are proud to say we have found both in spades.

The debut issue (available online from 6pm today!) is packed full of ideas, stories and inspiration. You’ll meet industry vendors striving, like we are, to bring a bit of pure unadulterated nicety and creativity back into the wedding game. You’ll find page after page of some truly diverse real life weddings, each one offering a different form of inspiration than the last.

We’ve got DIY projects we know you’ll get a kick out of, while one man also recounts the heart-thundering journey of proposing. But the icing on the metaphorical cake? Our fashion and inspiration shoots by Feather & Stone, The Loved Ones and Whitewall Photography… we are pretty excited about them and you should be too!
