Stationery expert, Sara Jones from The Little Extras Stationery tells us how you can save money on your wedding stationery.

"Start by deciding what you can and cannot compromise on. Understanding what you want from your day can be beneficial as without a clear idea your budget can easily be forgotten about. Research your ideas and ask your suppliers questions, as there are always compromises and ways of saving money.

"Think about if you want your invitations printed on hand-made texture card or will you be happy with digital versions? Do you want number cards, or would you prefer a concertina invite? Have a consultation with your supplier to discover what you like and dislike and don't be shy or afraid to ask questions."

Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, photographer, Roman Hajduk put together this magical shoot at Guildford Castle. He tells us: “Suleily and Derian are a lovely couple who had been unable to see each other due to the lockdown. After a few months, they were able to meet up, and when Suleily was unable to find him, she touched the Alice statue, and a rabbit appeared! She kissed him, and he turned into Derian, reuniting them together once again.”

This gorgeous image was taken at Minley Manor. We spoke to the creative director, Kerry Brent from AB Event Hire to find out more: “Our vision was to create a romantic ceremony set up in the exquisite Grade II listed Orangery. We used floating silk cherry blossom trees from Forever And A Day Events, along with a white carpet, scattered rose petals and our vintage glass candlesticks and Chiavari chairs. We envisaged our bride walking down the aisle in a mist of pink cherry blossom trees and the happy couple tying the knot under an archway. For the wedding breakfast table, we chose luxurious pinks and golds, with a crisp white table cloth and ruched dusky blossom cloth runners, blooms from Chobham Flowers, candlesticks and terrariums with gold-rimmed plates and crystal band glassware. The Gin Inn's fantastic bar complimented the vintage theme and made the perfect backdrop to capture a fun shot with our bride.”

The showstopping bake was made by Anna Lewis Luxury Wedding Cakes. “It was inspired by torn paper,” says Kerry. “She used fondant to create a contemporary texture which was balanced by delicate ethereal sugar flowers in soft blush and white with gold accents. The design complimented the dessert table which featured watercolour iced vanilla bean biscuits, coconut macarons, lemon miniature cupcakes, cake pops and Belgian chocolates.”

The striking stationery featured lovebirds and botanicals. “It reflected our pink and gold theme and was the inspiration behind the name of the shoot,” explains Kerry. “Flamboyant Invites made pieces that went back to another era and juxtaposed with a modern minimalist edge that she used across the stationery set.”

The model wore a gorgeous dress supplied by Mirror Mirror Bridal Couture. “The gown was called Davies from Pronovias' Privee Collection,” shares Kerry. “It had feathery embroidery and long sleeves, with an illusion buttoned back and a detachable train.”

Bridesmaids specialist, Jean Bristow from Always and Forever Bridal tells us how you can choose dresses that compliment each other for your big day.

"Your bridesmaids also almost as important as your wedding gown, so it's essential they look and feel amazing on your big day. Style has come a long way over the last few years and gone are the days where your friends have to wear the same dress.

"Get creative and try mixing it up with the same coloured gown in various styles or the same frock in different shades. This will enable you to create bespoke ensembles that fit your girls' personalities and concerns.

"However, you do need to consider the challenges that this option can pose. Think about how the hue works with the overall look and feel of your day. With a bit of time, we're absolutely certain you will be able to create a masterpiece that will capture your vision for the day.

"Your boutique will be able to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have."

Cakes by Nia Cummings and Louise Bernau Cakes teamed up with local suppliers to help those in need during the lockdown. Nia tells us: “My twin sister and I each have a wedding cake business and when lockdown began, like so many people, we found ourselves redundant overnight. Lavender Catering was delivering meals to the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford and had teamed up with Blakes of Bookham, Eat My Face and Project Wingman to support the local community. We decided to work with them and started supplying cakes and treats. Sugar became like gold dust, and eggs might as well have come from a golden goose they were so rare, so neighbours began keeping boxes for us, donating ingredients and cupcake cases.

"Over 14 weeks, we supplied more than 2,500 cakes and treats to around eight local hospitals. We even met her royal highness, The Countess of Wessex who came to help in the kitchen. It's been such a worthwhile experience for us and our children. We have come across so many colleagues in the wedding industry who have adapted and done what they can to keep their business afloat and help those key workers on the frontline.”

Ruth and Richard decided to get married at Zinnia Gardens. “We didn't want to have our reception in a hall and viewed a couple of outdoor spaces until we came across Zinnia Gardens,” explains Ruth. “We fell in love right away and adored the beautiful gardens and secret bower area. There was plenty of room for all of our guests and lots of places to take photos, including a grand staircase with a lovely red carpet.”

Headwear designer, Inna Walker tells us how you incorporate red tones into your accessories.

"Red is a beautiful colour and provided a seasonal shade is selected, it can make your theme look phenomenal. For an autumn wedding, I would choose a colder shade instead of bright versions. Deep red bridesmaids' dresses and flowers are the most obvious choice and look beautiful against green leafy backgrounds as the sun goes down.

"If you're not wearing a coloured wedding dress, you could opt for a sash around your waist, or have one encrusted with red gemstones or appliqué flowers. If you've chosen a white gown, look for ivory options as these go well with deep shades of red.

"A headpiece or floral headband made with red flowers is a great option, as there are lots of blooms available in late autumn. Tiaras and metal-finished hair accessories with red gemstones are also season-appropriate. Hairpieces and jewellery made from a cluster of red gemstones will make you shine as you walk down the aisle. Ruby jewellery for the mother-of-the-bride, red hats, dashing red bow ties are all excellent ways of incorporating your colour scheme.

"As always there are things to watch out for. Choose heavier fabrics such as velvet and felt for hats and headbands. Avoid combining too many colours as it may look overdone and lose the effect you're trying to achieve. Be consistent and use the same fabric and colour throughout your accessories and flowers. It's also a good idea to ask your guests to avoid wearing red."

Cate and Ben are high school sweethearts. “We met when we were 15 and 16,” says Cate. “Despite going to different universities and being separated for long periods of time, we've been together ever since.”

Ben popped the question in November 2018. “We were due to move out of our first home,” shares the bride. “I was very surprised and slightly concerned that there was an intruder in the house when I heard a noise as I thought Ben had gone to work. When I walked into the living room, I found Ben had decorated it and organised for a Rolls Royce to take us to a jeweller to find the perfect ring. We had a gorgeous lunch and then rang our friends and family. We booked to go away the next day, so we had a week in Santorini straight after the engagement, which was wonderful.”

Anna and Dave met at Rogues Bar in Guildford. “We were working there as bartenders,” says Anna. “We began talking, and the rest is history.”

Dave popped the question at Anna's birthday party. “We were celebrating at The Onslow Arms,” shares the bride. “Towards the end of the night, Dave asked me to marry him in front of our close friends and family. It was a big surprise, but we couldn't have been happier.”
