Here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we do love a good book to get our teeth into - not literally of course, cake's great for that - and the description for this new novel Before I Do from Sophie Cousens already has us hooked!

They share a flat and a bank account, and it's the only relationship that Audrey's ever had that feels like something she can put her trust in. But romance should be full of fireworks, and as the big day approaches, Audrey's found herself wondering if Josh really is 'the one'.

Lisa and Jamie first laid eyes on each other at work. "Jamie took over my role when I went on a sabbatical to go travelling," says Lisa. "When I returned, we were working in the same team. We got on well and had the same sense of humour and interests. It did take a while for us to eventually pluck up the courage to admit we liked each other more than friends. Jamie asked me to go to the pub for our first date in the same village we would have our wedding reception eight years later." The couple bought their first home, and shortly after, Jamie proposed. "We had just celebrated our anniversary, and Jamie said he had a belated gift," shares the bride. "The present was a pack of cards that said '10 things I love about you.' As I read through them, I got to the last one, which said: 'will you marry me?' Jamie then got down on one knee with the ring. It was a surprise in the sense that I thought it may have happened on our anniversary, and when that passed, I thought maybe it wasn't happening that year. Jamie referred to the pack of cards in his speech on the wedding day, which was really touching."

Linda and Geoffrey met in a bar in Crawley. "I was waiting for a friend who hadn't turned up and got talking to Geoffrey," says Linda. "We soon discovered that we had both worked for the Surrey Fire Brigade, so we had lots in common. We chatted for a few hours, and before I knew it, the bar was closing! Since we hit it off, we decided to meet again." Geoffrey proposed on Christmas Day. "I had been at work overnight," shares the bride. "When I got home, there was a large vase of flowers on the table, and Geoffrey asked me to sit down. I wanted a coffee first, but when I did eventually sit, he got down on one knee and popped the question. I said 'yes', and he jumped up and popped the confetti balloons that were hanging above my head. The confetti went everywhere, and it took days to clean up!"

The Law Commission of England and Wales has today outlined recommendations to reform weddings law that gives couples more choice over where and how their wedding takes place. This will be music to the ears of many couples who are currently restricted by many of the outdated regulations. The main law which governs marriage is from 1836 and it seems madness that modern couples are still having to adhere to these policies that do not reflect their beliefs or blended unions.

Katie and Terry met at work. "I had just come back from travelling and applied for a temporary role in Sutton," says Katie. "Terry was the manager recruiting for the role and at the interview, he offered me the job there and then! Although the role was meant to be temporary, I was fortunate enough to become a permanent member of the team. Terry and I got to know each other and realised how similar we are. As time went on, we got closer, and after a couple of years of working together we were both invited to a colleague's wedding. We got on so well and had such a fantastic time that everyone naturally assumed we were a couple rather than work colleagues! Following the wedding, we carried on chatting outside of work hours, and eventually Terry asked me if I wanted to spend the afternoon with him in Burgess Hill and go for a nice country walk. This was the first date of many, and our relationship blossomed from there."
