The Brisbane mornings are still a little chilly here at QB, but this cover is giving us all the springtime vibes! How lucky are we to be living and celebrating in a part of the world where you can frolic in the sunshine in the middle of winter? Our joyful front cover image popped out at us from one of the stellar styling shoots we have in store for you this issue. Along with this European-inspired beauty, there’s also a sophisticated alfresco soirée and a 70s-inspired disco good time to enjoy from p.32. And don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of cosy options, too, including fashion pages dotted with sleeved gowns and plush faux-fur shrugs. Perfect for that late afternoon photocall when you’re roaming the countryside with your new husband or wife. Layer up from p.16.Fun fact about weddings: location is key. Have you found yours yet? Many couples tell us that locking in their venue made everything else fall into place pronto. So, we’re shining a light on some of the state’s best locations for love as part of our 18-page reception feature, kicking off on p.54. Happy scouting! And, as always, the best place to grab some real inspiration is in our real weddings feature. In this issue, we have nine insanely beautiful and unique celebrations kindly shared by couples just like you.
Wishing you all the best, enjoy the ride!

In this issue, we've zoomed in on a key piece of the planning puzzle: the venue. Because while some brides let their choice of heels set the mood, many look to their location to guide everything from styling to honeymoons. Highlighting six favourite venue styles (and the party perks of each) became something of a love letter to our state’s incredible event spaces. Find your match from page 55.
Have you got the confidence to think big when planning your dream wedding? Whether you choose a luxe elopement or a stadium-sized guest list, it’s all about designing a day (or week) that feels fun and personal. And that certainly rings true in our nine joyful real weddings, with island escapes, gallery events, and several multi-day celebrations in the mix from page 69.
And the styling in this issue? Just glorious, with tips on bringing a French twist to your event, Italian inspiration, and a whimsical garden vibe that’s perfect for autumn and beyond from page 33. And if you haven’t said yes to the dress yet, perfect timing. You’ll find plenty of options to make your heart sing inside.


Although based in New Zealand, this travel-loving pair looked to the Sunshine Coast enclave of Noosa for their celebration. “We thought Noosa Springs was just beautiful and we loved that we could take our wedding guests on a journey there,” says the bride. The couple was certainly thinking big when it came to their event, organising five days of activities and celebrations. See more inside!
