Well hey there guys! It’s our pleasure to welcome you to issue 22 of Hello May magazine – our September issue! It’s an exciting time of year, as its when all the new bridal collections are released, so you’ll find new designs from our mates at Rue De Seine, Karen Willis Holmes and Lola Varma on the inside (just to name a few!).

We stayed close to home this issue, too, with not one, but two fashion editorials shot in Southern Sydney with the lovely Jack Steel. The first was downstairs in our office (yep our factory floor doubles as a photographic studio!) and the second was at one of our all-time fave Sydney venues – the beautiful Audley Dancehall and Cafe, which is situated right in the heart of the Royal National Park and less than 60 minutes from the CBD! Both of these shoots are jam-packed with new season gowns we know you’re gonna love!

We’ve rounded up some epic giveaways this issue too – you can win one of three veils thanks to Dove Grey Bridal (valued at $480 each). Should you be one of the three lucky winners, you can choose from the Lace Trim Veil or the Daisy Spray Cathedral Length Drop Veil. To enter all you have to do is pick up a copy of this issue from your nearest stockist, snap a photo of the cover and share it on your Instagram feed. Then follow Dove Grey Bridal on Instagram and hashtag #dovegreybridal along with #showusyourhellomay and boom! You’re in the running.

And like every issue, we’ve rounded up our fave never before seen real weddings including Josephine and Tim’s elegant West Oz wedding, which features on our cover and was photographed by HM recommended vendor Alex Cohen Photography!
