Behind the scenes: Staff Makeup by Hannah Nugent

The staff photoshoot last year at Westland Nurseries with Jessica Turale was a cracker of a day! Squeezed in between shots of bridal-clad guys and gals, we managed to gather the crew together for a few photos with our chosen ‘spirit plants’.

Our yearly major shoot is an extraordinarily busy day, and with organising a large troupe of models (hair, makeup, location and art direction) we never get the chance to concentrate on our own beautiful selves. The annual staff photos usually consists of us running to the nearest bathroom to tuck away the stray hairs and apply a bit of lippy, at least for those of us who are there all day.

Luckily for us, one of our models this year just so happens to be a beauty therapist. The gorgeousness that is Hannah Nugent started her day even earlier than early, meeting us at the office with her enormous supply of beautification goodies. She did a stellar job making the Pure Bride management team look like actual human beings and we love her to bits for it. Thanks so, so much Hannah!

Hannah does some gorgeous nails as well as makeup! If you’d like to enquire after her services, she can be contacted on

Pure Bride — Our new identity.


If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or Tumblr, you may have noticed some small changes seeping through our branding over the past couple of months. You might have seen some elements disappearing, some appearing, and some being refined. No, you’re not going crazy — we here at PB HQ have been slowly rolling out our brand new identity!


The old logo served us well, and did a great job in introducing Pure Bride as Tassie’s newest boutique bridal magazine. We had an incredible first year and have been completely thrilled with the great feedback coming from both clients and readers, Australia-wide (and world-wide!).


So why change?

With the second edition of Pure Bride Magazine on its way (72 days — not that we’re counting), we wanted our second year to completely outshine the first. The content that’s been rolling in from photographers and writers has been outstanding, and we wanted to match that in our own way. The new identity is cleaner and clearer, and we feel that it captures our company’s personality perfectly.


What’s staying?

Our name is staying, our icons are staying, and so are our colours and typefaces. We’ve just made everything tidier, more accessible, more ‘us’. We can’t wait to show you the next edition of the mag — we know it’s gonna knock your socks off!


We’d love to hear your feedback! Comment below, or send us a message via our contact form.

Girls Day Out Expo

We had a great time supporting the Cancer Council this weekend at the Girls Day Out Expo in Princes Wharf Shed One! It happened to coincide beautifully with the launch of our brand new online store, so the first part of the weekend was spend getting our stock ready and framing some prints!

The expo itself was a great day filled with sun, laughs and lots of lovely people. Our booth was stationed between two of our own Pure Bride vendors, Lucid Photography and Style My Day, and it was great to see some familiar smiling faces!

We had a completely fantastic response to our new products and loved chatting to people about the current and upcoming issues of Pure Bride Magazine. Only five months to go until our own expo at PW1, we can’t wait! x
