Cover Story: Love


We are gathered here today to celebrate a very special occasion – a Big Issue vendor wedding – in a truly memorable edition dedicated to love.

In a first for the magazine, Sydney vendors Kelly and Greg have invited us to share in their big day – an intimate backyard wedding organised in just 48 hours after doctors advised them to bring forward their marriage plans.

Plus, we bring you a series of love stories to make your heart sing and your eyes tingle: neighbourly love, love letters, love for family and love for an old dog.



Also in this edition:

  • Alyssa Milano talks Who’s the Boss?, mental health and using her celebrity to achieve good in Letter to My Younger Self.
  • The Big Picture celebrates Australian grandmothers, from Nanna to Yiayia to Bubbe, and the special place they hold in our hearts.
  • Home cook Salwa Sharabah shares her recipe for a mouth-watering Rolled Baklawa in Tastes Like Home
  • Director Lynne Ramsay on finding “a brother from another mother” in Joaquin Phoenix when they teamed up on new film You Were Never Really Here.
  • Nicole shares how she tries to “make a good life” for herself while living in a trailer in Living Homeless.
