Happy New Year!

After a lovely Christmas and New Year celebration with my family, it’s nice to be back at my desk beginning another exciting year at The Bride’s Diary®. In fact, we are celebrating our 30th year publishing Australia’s leading wedding magazine and website.


I hope you enjoy this image of my beautiful granddaughter Mollie at her first high-end bridal couture shoot.

When I wrote and designed The Bride’s Diary® for the Australian market in 1985, I did not realise what an icon of the Australian wedding publishing industry it would become. Brides-to-be from all over Australia clamour to source their copy from our fabulous clients, leading bridal fairs, newsagencies and online.

Every annual edition of The Bride’s Diary® is thoughtfully curated to reflect modern wedding and styling trends. We are obsessed with everything stylish, unique and beautiful. From the most stunning locations, latest designer fashion, sensational styling and lust-worthy honeymoon destinations, we bring you the best of the best.

By far the biggest change in media has been the advent of the digital age, and how this has influenced the way a woman becomes inspired for her wedding day. We love the immediacy it provides our brides and advertisers who have overwhelmingly embraced our digital and social platforms.  

As we embark on another year, we invite all Australian newlywed couples and leading photographers to submit their weddings to enter our 2017 Wedding of the Year competition, with the chance to win fabulous prizes. We love seeing each wedding  and the unique approach that couples bring to their day.

It is going to be a stupendous year at The Bride’s Diary®. We are creating new styling shoots, developing innovations to our beautiful website and delivering even more content each week. We will be featuring new products in our online shop and will be attending, even more, events throughout Australia than ever before.

And, for daily updates, don’t forget to like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram and Twitter, and enjoy our Snapchats.

We sincerely wish you every success in 2017. May it be a year filled with excellent health, much wealth and total happiness. The best is yet to come!
