I was a little blown away on Wednesday when I received a special little something in my inbox. After a month of waiting and a week of sneaky puzzle pieces, the Real Weddings team sent me a login to access their brand new website early Wednesday morning.
The completed puzzle.
Real Weddings is one of those magazines I buy every issue of and eagerly await- I truly believe it is a jewel in Australia’s wedding industry and have been so thrilled that they honoured me by allowing me to be a part of their website launch in this way.
The Real Weddings brand (created and launched by an Australian bride) to me has always represented inspirational weddings. From the bride who was inspired by a beautiful necklace, to a line of rainbow coloured chair covers, each issue has inspired me and led me to consider new ways of doing things.
I honestly had no idea where to start with the website- it is so packed full of content! Some of it free (including the Tip Of The Day) and a lot of it available under the special subscriber deal (which offers a years subscription to Real Weddings Magazine, competition prize draws, a Vera Wang cake knife set and access to all features of the website).
The Real Weddings section takes you behind the scenes of some of the latest magazine weddings. Photos, words and videos add a whole new dimension to what we saw on the pages. It was such a treat to hear the thoughts of the brides I had poured over in the magazine- their proposal stories, how they chose the different elements of their wedding day, their mishaps and their treasured moments.
Luxury Honeymoons showcases favourite luxury locations and Real Postcards from real couples of their own honeymoons in these top spots.
Real Weddings TV seems to be the real focal point of the website and is divided into four sections- Tip of The Day (where editor Kirsten shares a tip for your wedding every day!), Bride’s Advice (advice from real brides), Themes (behind the scenes of Real Weddings photo shoots with tips and styling advice from professionals), and Industry News.
The Inspiration Gallery is filled with so many beautiful images (most have featured in previous magazine issues) over 428 pages are available for you to browse and be inspired by.
The planner & budget, directory and community are extra features for brides- a place to talk with other brides, find wedding vendors and focus on the “real” parts of planning a wedding.
As with everything the team at Real Weddings does, this website is elegant, full of information and beautifully put together. It showcases all that is beautiful and stylish and is put together in Real Wedding’s inimitable understated classic style. Congratulations Real Weddings for being a trail blazer in the Australian wedding industry!
