Marisa and Chris met while working on a cruise ship. “Even though we're both British, we wound up meeting in Texas,” says Marisa. “We quickly became best friends, his sarcastic sense of humour matched mine, and he made me laugh. Our friendship was completely platonic for four years before we fell in love in the summer of 2019. It happened very naturally and was a dream come true because we got on so well and knew everything about each other. Our story was very much like a movie where the partner of my dreams turned out to be my best friend all along!”

The couple didn't have a traditional proposal. “We decided to get married, because life is so precious, and after the pandemic, I think more and more people realised this and so we thought why waste time?” shares the bride. “Like a typical man, Chris didn't mind when or where we got married. Painshill start hosting weddings in June, so we were the first one of the year! Weather in the UK is always unpredictable, so we prayed for sunshine, and we were lucky that our day was very hot!”

The team at May & Grace tells us how to find the perfect wedding dress.

"Start your search approximately 10 months before your wedding date, with the view of ordering seven to eight months before the big day. You also need to allow two to three months for alterations. Most boutiques will stock a selection of sample gowns that you can take home straight away if you're pressed for time.

"Have a look through the website of your chosen boutique and pick out a few styles that excite you. This is a great way for the stylist to get to know a little about your taste. Be open to suggestions, and remember that your consultant knows the gowns inside out and is there to help you find your dream dress."

Chloee and Ollie were set up by a mutual friend. “Our paths actually crossed over 20 years ago when Ollie was at primary school with my brother,” says Chloee. “One of our friends arranged a meal at a local curry house, and we were strategically sat opposite each other. We chose the same curry from the menu, and the conversation flowed all evening. Later, I was de-briefing my stepdad in a pub when Ollie walked in with his friend! We swapped numbers, and the rest is history.”

Ollie popped the question on New Year's Day in 2021. “We live opposite a big hill, and every year we walk to the top,” shares the bride. “Once we got there, we stopped to look at the view, and I turned around to find Ollie down on one knee!”

John Griffiths tells us the benefits of hiring a toastmaster.

"A toastmaster will liaise with you and your events team throughout the planning process and can advise on etiquette and timings, guiding you through all of the options available to make your event as formal or as relaxed as you want it to be.

"On the day, they will liaise with the banqueting team, the photographers and any entertainers to knit your event together and ensure it runs on time. Your toastmaster will be on hand to provide a warm welcome and resolve any minor issues as they arise, freeing you completely to enjoy your occasion with your family, friends and guests.

"They should be trained to work across a whole spectrum of events, understand the associated cultural or religious differences, and provide a professional service for your day."

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!”

This contemporary styled shoot was designed to help inspire couples looking for a different wedding approach. Jenny from Juno The Wedding Concierge tells us more: “I took inspiration from one of 2022's biggest trends; short wedding dresses paired with long clean veils. From the florals to the tablescape and stationery, the overall vibe was fun, bright and on-trend. We had a glitter bar provided by Buttercup Bus Vintage Campers, which created some fab photos, and doubled up as a photo booth. To continue the pink theme, we included bespoke cocktails from Bitter Sweet Bars paired with the couple's initials in pink neon.

“I wanted the shoot to have a modern and clean aesthetic with pops of pink as an accent colour. The overall colour scheme was monochrome, but by adding the pink it created an additional dimension to the theme. Monochrome provides a modern and clean feel and with the darker crockery it's a slightly more unusual element and a move away from using the more standard white versions."

Hair and make-up artist, Amy Lacey, tells us her trend predictions for 2022.

“When it comes to hair, several trends are popping up in 2022. The chignon is a classic yet simple and sweet hairstyle which fits most face shapes. The relaxed version is a little bit undone, with loose pieces framing your face, which adds even more to its appeal. It can also be created as a gorgeous braided top knot bun. Braids are still highly requested by my clients, especially those wanting a boho look.

“The latest wedding make-up is based on fashion week trends. We're seeing red lips, black eyeliner, blue accents, metallic lustre, and glow highlighter. You can play around with these ideas and add a touch of glam easily. Alternatively, you could combine nude lips with shimmery eyes as glitter is another huge trend for 2022. However, if this isn't your thing, then nude lips along with a sultry eye and fresh dewy skin are still on point.”
