Issue 28 Early Wildhearts Launch!

Introducing issue #28 and our gorgeous cover couple, Francesca and Thomas, married in Tuscany, Italy and photographed by Stephan & Nakita. Releasing early and exclusively for all Wild Hearts attendees this coming Sunday. All Wildhearts attendees receive a complimentary advance copy of issue 28 as well as a digital magazine bundle.

It’s the ultimate gift to start your wedding planning journey with a combined value of $39 NZD, which is more than the price of a GA ticket to the fair (buy tickets here). The TJ team will be at the fair and we can’t wait to show you our latest issue in person and talk to you about wedding planning.

Issue #28 will be in store in New Zealand and Australia by October 3rd.

Cover couple: Thomas wears Crane Brothers, and Francesca wears Kenny & Harlow Bridal

About issue #28: Summer is coming! There is a mood of positivity and excitement, and it is with great gusto that we explore new beginnings and off-the-beaten-track locations.

Perhaps most exciting is the truly glorious heirloom jewellery opportunity we have for one lucky reader. Our friends at McClurgs are giving away a bespoke piece of jewellery valued at up to NZ$17,000. This giveaway is the perfect celebration of love, whether that’s love for your partner, a family member, your best friend, or for yourself. And the creative possibilities of such a generous budget can allow the winner’s imagination to run wild! See page 42 to find out more.

Iconic label Pearl, known for its minimal eveningwear and elevated winter coats, is meeting an unmet demand in the market by launching a standalone bridal collection. We’re proud to introduce you to these beautiful, unconventional, and fashion-forward styes that, in many cases, can be worn again.

We also take you on an adventure to the shores of Lake Hāwea, where we explore the Lake house, the epitome of luxe country living and perfect for honeymooning and holidays. A short drive around the lake, we also explore The Hide, one of Hāwea’s best-kept secrets, and the ultimate wedding location for those who appreciate the majestic beauty of the mountains. We teamed up with talented local vendors to present an elegant and quintessentially South Island wedding vision, over on page 174.

Then it’s back to the city, to Auckland’s most hip hotel, The Hotel Britomart, to show you what’s new in contemporary bridal and occasion fashion. Beyond this, we explore flora as an art form, bring you the best in jewels and gifting, and of course, as usual, we have curated a selection of real weddings where modern and sophisticated couples have done things a little differently but completely their own way.
