Tiffany and Tom had a fairytale wedding at the beautiful Farnham Castle.

Tiffany tells us: “My wedding day was something I'd been dreaming about since I was a little girl and I knew I wanted to feel like a princess. As we pulled up to view Farnham Castle, we knew immediately it was the venue for us. We fell in love with every detail and couldn't imagine a more perfect setting. The team also provided the catering, and it was the most amazing menu with a wonderful selection of wines. We decided on a white, gold and green theme to complement the beauty of the castle. Our theme started at the grand entrance where we had an abundance of green foliage with white, gold and sparkly touches.”

We asked Jeannette Lawrence from Jeannette's Great Cakes more about her company. She tells us: "Before becoming a full-time cake maker, I had an 18-year career in banking. Becoming a mum changed my priorities, and working from home made more sense. I've always enjoyed baking, from a young age with my grandmother and I started making my son's birthday cakes and bakes for family occasions and the business developed from there. I had a private tutor who encouraged and gave me the confidence to transform my passion into a business, and Jeannette's Great Cakes was born in 2009. In more recent years, my husband has joined the team, and it's become a family effort."

Local make-up artist, Linda Leonard reveals how you can choose the perfect foundation for your skintone.

"The best place to try foundation is on the inside of your wrist, where the skin is the thinnest. If it matches, then the foundation should disappear into the skin, and if you can't really see it colour wise, then it's a good match.

"The texture is something else. If it feels light, smooth and creamy, then you know it won't show on your face, giving you a lovely look that hides any blemishes. If however you need or want a heavier texture then you need a slightly thicker foundation. Older ladies benefit from one of the many lifting foundations on the market. The best idea is to leave it to your professional artist, who will go through this with you at the trial stage."

Sadie and Zeer declared their love for each other with a grand celebration. “We chose to get married at De Vere Selsdon Estate as we loved the location and grand exterior. There was also lots of outdoor space and scenery for our guests to enjoy. The staff on the day were very accommodating and patient. On the day we both felt emotional, excited and very hot as it was over 30 degrees! We finished the night with the best fireworks display I've ever seen from Platinum Fireworks. It was like being on the Thames at New Year's Eve."

Local photographer Eray Kaya from E.K Photography tells us what you should take into consideration before booking your photographer.

"It's always really important that you get a great vibe from your photographer and love their work before committing to them. Any opening questions you ask a photographer should be met with a warm welcome and a clear indication, such as what's included within your package and what you'll pay in terms of deposit.

"You should talk to your supplier about their style and the type of shots you want for your wedding. They should also have public liability insurance, so if you're not sure, then ask.

"Find out what they cover in the event of a cancellation or emergency. Your photographer should agree to re-schedule at no extra cost. Ask to see examples of their work if you feel you haven't seen enough. They should be more than happy to provide you with this.

"It's always good to try and get to know as much as possible about your chosen supplier. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and relaxed. They are, after all, capturing one of your most special days."

Bride Celestine tells us all about her wedding dress: "I wore a full-length lace dress trimmed with diamantes and crystals from Elizabeth James Bridal. I accessorised with a fur coat, veil, shoes, jewellery and a tiara. My gown took up all the space in the lift at the hotel, and only the maid-of-honour was able to squeeze in with me, so it took several trips to get the bridal party down to leave for the ceremony!"

When this winter inspired shoot landed in our inbox, we just knew our lovely readers would love it. We spoke to the florist, Rhoda Bouaziz from Rhoda Louisa Floral Events to find out more: “This is about a journey and taking the positives from an unusual word event that has struck us all in many ways. Reading the book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne and watching the movie Dare to Dream inspired me to find like-minded suppliers to collaborate with that also put their heart and soul into their work. Our romantic winter shoot highlights these inspirational people who came together with their vibrant energy and skills to create naturally styled scenes.

"Great Fosters provided the fabulous backdrop to overflowing British greenery, a pre-worn iconic gown, and clothing fit for the most peacock-like grooms, creating an anthology of ideas for those planning their nuptials. Trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible, naturally, I decided to go foam-free, British farmed flowers, using sustainable techniques, including some charity shop finds! I'm ever so grateful to Great Fosters, all the creative talents, models and amazing suppliers for agreeing to work with me on this project.”

Local florist, Sue Sturges from Bramble and Belle gives us some of her top tips for choosing seasonal flowers.

"Winter is full of texture with different foliages and berries available. Whites are a great alternative to reds, look for blooms such as anemones and eryngiums.

"Spring brings delicate flowers such as narcissus, ranunculus and cherry blossom.

"Summer is full of blousy and scented flowers. Choose peonies, garden roses and delicate sweet peas to create a romantic look. Team these with garden favourites such as delphiniums and lupins.

"Autumn is full of deeper colours. Team burgundy blooms and foliage with lighter blush pinks and creams, or use dusky pink as an alternative to orange. Dahlias, amaranthus and sedums are perfect for this season."

Local make-up artist Gemma Warburton is teaching brides-to-be how to do their make-up. She tells us: “During these bizarre times, I've been working with couples as normal as possible, obviously with additional PPE and necessary precautions. I wanted to create a backup plan just in case I was unable to do my job as usual, so at the trial rather than doing the hair and make-up, I've been teaching couples to do it themselves. I offer a consultation as usual before demonstrating the look on myself with the client following along. Doing it this way means the bride can copy what I'm doing and if they require products they have access to my kit. I'm available between the trial and wedding, as they practice just in case they need any help via text, FaceTime, calls or emails.

"I'm doing this at the same price as my normal packages, a huge reduction from my normal prices for make-up lessons and aftercare packages, and I will still provide the usual touch up kit that all my brides get so they don't have to organise anything on the big day. I strongly feel that just because the world is a bit strange right now, the bride shouldn't have to compromise on her look.”

Kiran and Michael tied the knot at Foxhills Country Club & Resort. "We instantly fell in love with the property during our viewing in 2019,” explains Kiran. “The outside was picturesque, and the interior was the perfect fit for our intimate ceremony. One thing that made the decision easy for us was the flexibility of the staff. They were more than happy to change their packages to accommodate us. We did see some other properties in the area, but we didn't get the same feeling from them, and they weren't as accommodating to our needs.”
