There’s no denying that the little things in life make a big difference, especially in the pandemic landscape. So we’re bringing back our Favourite Things feature, which was a staple of our Wild Hearts magazines. Each month, we’ll be putting together a lusty list of things to dream over, from jewellery, to books, shoes and products (and everything in between).
November’s lustful list features not only things of beauty and creativity, but some thoughtful items that stem from either small batch productions and/or conscious business practices. Revel in the small things that evoke happiness, better practices and wonder. Enjoy this November’s covetables x

Wild Hearts Brand Series With the launch of our new Brand Series, we are helping couples to delve deeper behind the veil of our beautiful vendors. We love sharing how our vendors have succeeded, so we are introducing them on a deeper level via behind the brand film interviews. We’ll be sharing relatable insights and conversations, which will elevate connection between couples and vendors and instil confidence when taking the plunge to book. You’ll see behind the scenes footage of our vendors in full creative mode, whether that be shooting photos, creating florals, an up-close view of beautiful gowns and the exact texture and flow of the fabric and so much more.
