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!

The couple was certainly thinking big when it came to their event, organising five days of activities and celebrations. See more inside!
