Issue 16 is on sale today and we’re pretty pumped about it. Why we hear you ask? Well we’ve taken some time to spruce up the inside of the magazine. We’ve introduced more places (21 to be exact) where you can meet vendors through out the magazine and overall we’ve made it easier for you to absorb practical information like what area a vendor services or how many people a particular venue might hold.

The cover features the gorgeous Byron Bay wedding of Lucie (owner of Aussie jewellery label Babyanything) and Rory which was beautifully photographed by Sydney lens lady Lara Hotz. Of course the inside is packed too with loads of never before seen real weddings spilling forth with inspiration for your own day of good times.

If you’re on the hunt for ‘the dress’ this issue is a must purchase with new season bridal gowns from some of Australia and New Zealand’s leading designers and boutiques gracing our pages. You’ll also find a new and improved designer profile. This issue we interview Karen Willis Holmes and show off a few of her gorgeous designs.

Printed right here in Australia using linseed oil based inks and recycled paper stocks, Aussie, New Zealand, US and UK readers can click here to search for their local stockist via suburb or postcode, however we can never encourage readers to shop local enough and support their local newsstand or bookstore.

We hope you enjoy reading this issue as much as we loved putting it together for you. If you’re still starved for some inspiration and quality vendor recommendations you can shop online for back issues and also pick up a copy of our 2016 annual Real Wedding Special whilst stocks last. Simply click here to place your order today. Our 2017 Real Wedding Special is on the newsstands now.
