Let­ter from the edi­tor

Bride and Groom - - CONTENTS - — Corinna Bold­is­ton

From the mo­ment you an­nounce your en­gage­ment, well-wish­ers may ask ques­tions about your wed­ding prepa­ra­tions. Some peo­ple may of­fer some help­ful pearls of wis­dom or ad­vice that is dis­tract­ing or con­fus­ing. Don’t panic. Ev­ery­thing will fall into place. I know this be­cause it is the rec­cur­ing ad­vice that flows through the bridal sub­mis­sions which in­un­date the Bride and Groom desk. Here’s my tip: en­joy your plan­ning and stay true to your­selves. You are get­ting mar­ried be­cause you and your soul mate want to for­mally com­mit to spend­ing the rest of your lives to­gether — and that is cause for cel­e­bra­tion. How you cel­e­brate will be a re­flec­tion of your per­son­al­i­ties as a cou­ple, your cul­tural and so­cial back­ground, life val­ues and bud­get. And that’s what I love about this is­sue’s brides from the Goul­burn and Mur­ray re­gions. Their wed­dings vary from in­ti­mate cer­e­monies with just three wit­nesses and a pet dog to re­laxed gar­den cer­e­monies, tra­di­tional church wed­dings, and a mini-mu­sic fes­ti­val where the guests helped with al­most ev­ery as­pect of the event — and then camped overnight. Ev­ery wed­ding is unique and spe­cial, ev­ery bride is ra­di­ant and the joy of each cou­ple shines in the beau­ti­ful im­ages through­out this edi­tion. There is so much in­spi­ra­tion through­out these pages, from bridal fash­ion to flower trends and tips on how to help your pho­tog­ra­pher cap­ture the most beau­ti­ful im­ages of your day. Whether you are laid-back in your de­ci­sion mak­ing or want to or­gan­ise things to the finest de­tail, en­joy your plan­ning and I wish you a won­der­ful wed­ding day.
