In this issue, we chat with Courtney Illfield, the multi-talented businesswoman behind the bridalwear brand, Lola Varma. Courtney has spent years travelling the globe photographing the most desirable weddings and that time behind the lens is evident in her design. She has an innate understanding of what modern brides want and her beautiful, minimalist bridalwear is building a cult following around the world.
We also took a trip to Paris to shoot a modern elopement editorial at the infamous Hotel Grand Amour, a destination totally suited to a romantic rendezvous. We found it hard to leave the loft room, with its pillowy bed, painting easel and Parisian skyline views. (Still dreaming about breakfast in bed with café noir and fresh croissants!) And our London-based contributors produced an artfully styled shoot in Amsterdam, full of beautiful florals and Dutch retro touches.
As usual, we have sought out the best makers, suppliers and ideas that the wedding world has to offer, currently. This includes Mr Theodore, which champions marriage equality, and we salute Alexander and Nicholas, who enrich this industry so much with their hard work. Simon Grew from Grew & Co lets us into his magical world of jewels, gems and customizing pieces for his wonderfully individual clients. Jessica Bridal Couture, known for her breathtakingly dramatic, feminine gowns took us on a tour of her showroom to explain why she lives for romance.
We also showcase some of New Zealand’s best, with a lavish cake-and-flowers-filled editorial inspired by Sofia Coppola’s exquisite Marie Antoinette, while our collection of real weddings illustrate the modern, Australasian move towards more pared-back weddings.
Stories of love and wonderful ways to celebrate your own. Together Journal features real weddings, occasion fashion and beauty, travel and all the extra considerations that make celebrating love that little bit more easy and stylish.
