Local florist, Annabel Grange from Butterflies and Bows reveals how you can incorporate flowers into your venue decor.

"Pedestal arrangements can be used during your ceremony and moved to the reception area. Flower garlands have different textures and can be positioned over mantlepieces, around columns, draped on staircases and even placed along the front of the top table. Free-standing arches, rings and stands are on-trend. These can transform a dark corner or embellish a cake table. Look for large blooms such as hydrangeas and bubbling gypsophila for your centrepieces. A single flower head can be added to your chair sashes. Use silk ones to ensure they don't fade over the course of the day. Don't forget about outside spaces. Transform them by adding jugs of large blooms such as gladiolus."

Make-up artist, Amy Lacy reveals her top tips for making your make-up last all day.

"A good base is key to ensuring your look lasts all day. Cleanse, moisturise and prime your skin every morning to ensure it's nice and smooth. Primers are essential. Not only do they seal in your skincare, but also create a barrier for prolonged wear. Remember less is more. Purchase a beauty blender, and lightly dampen and squeeze out any excess water. Use a HD powder to set your make-up. Keep a compact with you to touch up your T-zone during the day – especially if you're prone to shiny areas. Opt for a waterproof mascara and kohl eyeliner pencil to ensure it doesn't smudge. Finally, use a setting spray. It seals all your work and is quite refreshing."

Rebecca and Lewis had a winter wedding at Northbrook Park.

Rebecca tells us: "Aside from the usual nerves, Lewis and I had the unexpected arrival of the Beast From The East. The weather caused the odd hitch, but we said that as long as we were together, exchanging our vows, then nothing else mattered. The weather conditions couldn't keep our guests away. I remember watching the cars slowly arrive from the suite where I was getting ready. My jaw hit the floor when I walked into the ceremony room and saw that every chair had been filled. We were so touched that our friends and family had gone to such extreme lengths to be with us on our special day."

We spoke to Sue Sturges from Bramble and Belle and asked for her top tips on booking your wedding flowers.

She said: "Use your venue as inspiration. Rustic logs would suit an informal barn perfectly, while a more formal affair in a lavish manor would be better suited to candelabra and structured blooms."

I love Emilie and Joshua's love story.

Emilie says: We met on a dating app and had an instant connection. We began talking on the phone every day and had our first date in Brighton. Josh kissed me on the pier, and we knew right away that we had something special. He popped the question in the Bahamas. He booked a candlelit dinner on a private veranda. We almost missed the reservation because we overslept during our afternoon nap! I wasn't expecting the proposal, and when he got down on one knee, I was blown away by the ring.”

I love this look that Hersham-based photographer Nicola Rowley created. She said: “We wanted to create a festival theme. The use of a stunning balloon arch from Balloonista, flowers provided by Lily & Myrtle and a vintage Campervan from Buttercup Bus Vintage Campers all added to the look we were after."

The image was photographed by Nicola Rowley Photography. To see more stunning pictures, check out the full shoot on page 97 of the current issue.
