We're so excited that you can finally get your hands on the 60th Diamond Edition of Modern Wedding - on sale today! We began planning this issue long before most magazines. The concept of diamonds quickly emerged from the symbol of a 60th wedding anniversary. We let our imaginations go crazy with diamond ideas, Rhianna's Diamonds became our theme song and a diamond gown for the front cover was a must! We got in touch with top bridal designer Karen Willis Holmes and leading bespoke jeweller, Bill Hicks, to bring this diamond gown to life. We share the story of how this $275,000+ gown was created on pages 48-51.
In addition to celebrating 60 editions of Modern Wedding we wanted to dedicate this magazine to something close to our hearts. You may remember Natalie's wedding, featured in edition 58 of Modern Wedding, the story of a brave young woman battling ovarian cancer. With the help of so many generous wedding suppliers we were able to give Natalie her dream wedding before she lost her battle. We've dedicated this edition to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund in the hope that one day an early detection test will save lives. Learn about the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, ovarian cancer facts and real stories on pages 62-65 - a must-read for all women.
Take a walk down memory lane as we celebrate past editions, changing fashions, memorable front covers and more, page 125.
We went a bit fashion shoot crazy and this edition boasts more fashion shoots than ever before! 'Centre Stage' (page 216) saw our ballerina bride modelling some exquisite gowns from every angle. We also asked the industry's best stylists to create some diamond inspiration and showcase creative diamond ideas. 'Dreaming Diamonds' (page 364) places gorgeous gowns in a dreamlike setting, while 'C is for Couture' (page 314) and 'Pure Couture' (page 294) celebrate the work of Australia's top couturiers. Special thanks to the amazing Kate Robinson of KR Creative who created the stunning paper flower backdrop in 'Pure Couture'. It's just unbelievable what this girl can do with paper!
We share the wedding story of 10 couples including ovarian cancer survivor Kate (page 112.).
There's lots of helpful planning advice from fashion and photography to cakes, destination weddings plus our regular wedding DIY feature and much more!
