On a spring afternoon, an assemblage of highly-talented wedding professionals collaborated together to bring this Italian Riviera-themed shoot to life in no other than the Surrey Hills. Barnett Hill is a mesmerising four-star hotel located in Guildford. The surroundings of the century-old manor are enriched with rural charm and a winding tree-lined entrance. Its contemporary design made the fitting canvas for the theme, which allowed the work of over 20 contributors to truly shine in all their glory. The team effort resulted in a romantic and authentic wedding showcase which beautifully captured the charm of a destination-inspired wedding celebration and the service led by Helen Noble Celebrant of Surrey fit the feel of the shoot perfectly.

Wedding planner and shoot coordinator, Celebrating Love by Lucia Penma, tells us: “As creatives and suppliers of the wedding industry, we wholeheartedly believe that a wedding can be so much more than the traditional viewpoint. With the injection of colour and originality, an elegant and stylish event is highly achievable. With a touch of creative flair, you can cultivate an unforgettable wedding, which speaks volumes in years to come. We encourage you to go against the grain and challenge the conventional wedding day by embracing cultural characteristics and stylistic differences. You might just surprise yourself with the outcome!”

Hannah Martin from Hannah Martin Flowers tells us what flowers are popular for winter weddings.

“Crisp whites and creams work well during the winter months alongside dried elements such as seed pods, grasses or dried flowers. It's also a great time to incorporate some of the early spring options, such as anemones or ranunculus, which are starting to show their faces, as these are a soft and pretty contrast to the more wintry blooms available.”

Racquel and Jean-Pierre met in secondary school. “We were in the same class,” says Jean-Pierre. “We were just friends and stayed in contact when we went to different colleges. In 1999, we were out one day, and something felt different between us. It was an attraction that we hadn't felt before. We started dating and became inseparable. Sadly, time passed and in 2004 we went our separate ways. Racquel went on to have two children, and when she became single in 2010, we met up to try and rekindle our friendship. Two years later, I had the realisation that I loved Racquel, so I asked her to meet me and told her how I felt. We started seeing each other again, and in 2013 we became pregnant with our son. We moved to Surrey to be nearer to my parents and have been incredibly happy ever since.”

Jean-Pierre proposed in April 2019 during a holiday to California. “We were vising my brother, and while we were there, I arranged a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon for the two of us,” shares the groom. “When we arrived, I asked one of the other tourists to take a picture of us, and while we were posing I got down on one knee and asked her to be my wife.”

If you've booked your venue, then the next thing you'll be thinking about is how to style it. With so many options available, this can seem like a daunting task, but the most important thing to remember is that any space can be transformed with even the simplest of details. To help give you some inspiration, we've asked Claire Stevenson from Wedding Day Hire for her top tips on how to create a celestial-themed wedding.

“Any event, no matter how large or small the space is, has countless opportunities to personalise it in your own way. Guests will talk about those special touches that they saw throughout the day or comment on the wow factor as they entered the room. We all think of decorating the tables but consider other opportunities. Where will photos be taken, what spaces will your guests use, and are there any dull corners that could be made more interesting? Add additional light in the form of small, delicately-lit glass decorations. The overall effect is that of height and light. Complement this with standing silver vases framing the top table and a coordinating floral arrangement."

Make-up artist Amy Lacey tells us how to find the right foundation for your skin type.

"Don't go against your skin's natural undertones. If you have a warm complexion, go with a shade that has yellow undertones, and if your complexion is on the cool side, a foundation with pink undertones is your best bet. Neutral undertones can sway either way, depending on the time of year and temperatures.

"Try to find a foundation focusing on your specific skin concerns, whether it's an issue like acne, eczema or simply wanting your skin to look more luminous and glowy. Foundation isn't a one-size- fits-all, so take your time to visit a department store and make sure you get samples to try in your own home. Most importantly, never buy blind online!"

Amanda and Mark started talking online. “To this day, we still don't know who swiped first,” laughs Amanda. “Our relationship blossomed, and Mark asked me to be his wife in 2018 while we were in Egypt on an island called Mahmya. I had no idea that he was going to propose, and the whole trip was paradise.”

Ciara and Sonny have known each other since they were children. “I went to school with Sonny's sister,” says Ciara. “Later in life, we bumped into each other, and there was an instant spark. I was attracted to Sonny's good looks, sense of humour and chivalrous manners.”

Sonny surprised Ciara by proposing on Christmas Day in 2017. “I had been quite picky about never being proposed to on a special occasion, so the fact it came on Christmas Day made it all the more surprising,” shares the bride. “My favourite film is Love Actually, and even after seeing it a million times, I never get bored, so Sonny decided to reenact the scene where Keira Knightley opens the door and has a declaration of love held up to her on big whiteboards. Sonny had our daughter help and it didn't click until about the third page what was happening, but I said yes!”

Annabel Grange from Butterflies and Bows tells us what you should ask before booking your florist.

"Before booking you should find out how long the company have been in business. It's essential that your supplier has a high level of training and experience to make sure your day runs smoothly.

"A good florist will usually have a website as well as social media pages. These should include reviews and recommendations from previous clients and photos of their previous work.

"Make sure they are local and don't have to travel hours to your venue. Be very wary of companies online that don't show their location or are based hours away."
