Local florist, Sue Sturges from Bramble and Belle reveals how you can incorporate Valentine's Day into your flowers.

"You can easily incorporate your theme into your flowers. Use soft delicate, flowing foliage with a variety of blooms to create different shapes and textures. Opt for candles as part of your centrepieces to create a romantic atmosphere.
"Valentine's Day is a popular time of year to give flowers as a gift, especially red roses. Unfortunately, this means they are in high demand, so prices will be higher than usual. It's worth keeping this in mind when choosing your big-day blooms. You could look for arrangements that aren't red or mix them with other colours to save money. Remember February is a lovely time for spring flowers which are a nice sight after winter."

We spoke to Shenaz Lake-Thomas from Lake Thomas Cakes and asked for her top cake tips.

"Be realistic with your budget and honest with your chosen supplier. Decide in advance how many people you want to cater for as this will determine how many tiers you need. Decide how many flavours you want to offer your guests. Just keep in mind that some options are more expensive than others.”

Make-up artist, Amy Lacey reveals her top tips for creating the perfect wedding day look.

"Good skincare is key to creating a picture-perfect look. There are lots of routines and products you can use at home to keep your pours looking fabulous. If you do have any major concerns, seek advice from a salon or book a consultation.
A good base and primer will provide longevity. A compact powder is ideal for last-minute touch-ups on your T-zone, especially if you're prone to shiny skin.
Finally, use a good finishing spray to seal the deal. MAC Prep & Prime Fix is one of my favourites and now comes in a 30ml bottle, ideal for your bridesmaids to carry around on the day."

I love bride Rebecca's wedding dress.

She said: "My dress was made by my friend Kathryn Ross Atelier. It took me a while to get a clear idea of what I wanted, but I knew it had to centre around some lace that I'd seen in Kathryn's studio. She made a corset and underskirt that I paired with bright pink Sophia Webster flat shoes. I accessorised with Oliver Bonas earrings to mirror the lace and pearls on the gown.”

I love Kirsty and Jose' love story.

Jose says: "We used to regularly attend quiz nights. On one occasion, we were set up by one of our friends and the quizmaster. It was a slow burner, and although we have slightly different personalities, we always felt comfortable in each other's presence. Jose popped the question after 14 years together. In May 2018, I decided to cook Kirsty a special breakfast for her birthday and ask her to marry me,” shares the groom. “Unfortunately, due to an untimely visit by one of our friends, we ran out of time. So I decided I would do it the next day. I cooked her breakfast, and as it was a lovely sunny morning, we ate in the garden. I handed her an envelope and inside was a card and letter asking her to marry me. Alongside this, I gave her a Haribo ring so she would have something to wear until we picked her perfect ring.”

Lucy Brooker from Seventh Heaven Events reveals her top tips for styling a marquee.

"A marquee is a blank canvas which enables you to create a truly personalised look. Create the wow factor with a statement decorative piece, such as a floral arch behind the top table or a showstopping crystal chandelier suspended from a high apex.”

Local photographer, Fiona Ingvarsson reveals how you can relax when having your photograph taken.

"It's actually pretty easy to overcome your fear. To get the best results, simply concentrate on your hands and feet. Our natural response is to stand stiff and frozen because we're concentrating too much on getting the perfect picture. By shifting our weight from one foot to another, we create mobility in our hips and feet.
Here is a little experiment for you: Next time you're standing, take note of how you stand. Better still, the next you go for a wedding dress fitting, stand in front of the mirror and look at how shifting your weight from one foot to the other affects the movement in your lower body. What does it do to your hips and how does it create a shape in your gown?
Once you feel comfortable with your feet, you can start to think about your hands. These are generally awkward and need something to do, so by giving them a purpose, they can actually make us feel more relaxed. Just by resting your hands on your thighs, hips or groom's chest can make all the difference.
It may seem like there are a lot of posing techniques to remember, but your photographer will know how to create beautiful portraits and everything will fall into place."
