For the day-dreamers, beach lovers, sun chasers, star gazers, wanderers and bohemian believers. Let your hair down, adorn yourself with feathers and crystals and let love rule.
I'm not going to lie - we had so sooo much fun putting together the latest edition of Modern Wedding - our beach wedding special edition. We organised our bohemian beach wedding shoot with our fingers and toes crossed - it notoriously rains when we organise outdoor shoots! It was however the most beautiful day, shot on Sydney's northern beaches, we could have been on a private tropical island. The water was that gorgeous green colour and albeit the wind we couldn't stop thinking how lucky we were to be outside on such a spectacular day - our photographer's assistant even jumped in for a dip! I did mention wind though and there were definitely times when we thought we would lose our teepee, but despite cursing it on the day we can't fault the stunning windswept look it has given our bohemian bride (Note to brides - so don't stress if your wedding day falls on a windy one!) With hairpieces from Teeki, fishtail braids and accessories from Pandora our vision of a bohemian goddess came to life.
We share the real wedding story of Natalie and Matt - a story that truly touched our hearts. Editor in Chief Victoria Black first saw Natalie's story on A Current Affair. Natalie, a policewoman and single mother battling ovarian cancer simply hadn't time, finances or energy to organise a wedding. 'I jumped onto Modern Wedding's facebook page and said "let's give Natalie and Matt the wedding of their dreams" - Victoria. With the help of so many generous companies Natalie and Matt were married on 14th January - this is their story.
It is our beach wedding special edition, but we know you're not all beach babies. The Bride Unveiled is all about the finishing touches, an exquisitely beaded headpiece, soft satin gloves, the finest lace and most precious jewels.
In Indian Summer our bohemian bride isn't alone - we've included styling ideas for your own beach wedding.
A little bit of DIY is never amiss and this issue we've got ideas to style your own garden wedding ceremony - including how to create your own floral wedding arbour.
PLUS editor of Modern Hair & Beauty (and our in office beauty consultant), Rosemary Slade, shares the latest in hair and beauty inspiration.
