The beautiful Hitchin Lavender fields was the perfect backdrop for this stunning shoot, and I'm in love with this collection of wedding accessories! Shoot coordinator Victoria Mitchell of Victoria Mitchell Photography says, "Rachel Sokhal Bridal Accessories wanted a striking outdoor setting to launch her new capsule pearl accessory collection Serenity. The new collection was designed and created to offer Rachel's brides the timeless, classic pieces that she's renowned for, but with added modernity. Pearls have long been adored at weddings and they will always be an elegant choice that you can wear long after the big day and keep as heirlooms."

Who says big is best? An intimate wedding can be just as stunning as a more lavish affair. With many couples now looking at downsizing their wedding due to current restrictions, it's more important than ever to focus on all the most important details. Choosing experienced local specialists is a great way to ensure that cutting down the guest list doesn't mean compromising on style. Far from it, in fact even before COVID small weddings have always been popular with couples looking for a more personal alternative-style celebration. 

All you need to know on planning a small intimate wedding from local expert Sandie Chivers of Norfolk-based Mason's Great Event Co

1. Prioritise the ceremony and reception venue location. Many venues are able to hold ceremonies on site and may also have outdoor spaces available where your guests can be seated safely spaced apart.
2. To manage the guest list our advice is to reduce the number of groomsmen and the bridal party so you can still keep to the maximum number while adhering to the government guidelines.
3. Explain to those who can't be invited and maybe consider renewing your vows when you're able to, so they can all come along.
4. To make your day feel special don't forget the finer details and make sure to include your floristry and decorative details such as chair sashes. Most importantly stick to your wedding breakfast plan, with all those special moments like the speeches, cutting of the cake and, of course, your first dance.

Samara Forsyth Searle from Best Buds by Samara tells us what you should take into consideration before booking your florist.

“For many of you, finding a florist might be high on your list and one of the first things you want to book. Keep in mind that flowers aren't just bouquets and buttonholes, they're quite often the main source of decorations for your big day. If your big-day blooms are important to you, get booking your florist as soon as possible.

"Ask your venue and photographer if they have any recommendations. They will have worked with lots of suppliers and will likely know who will be suitable for your big day. Remember that recommendations are just people's opinions and everyone has their own style.

"Do you have a set look for your flowers? Some suppliers will specialise in certain styles. Look for inspiration via social media, wedding magazines and local photographers' pictures."

Nicola and Craig tells us all about their wedding outfits: "I wore a fitted strapless dress called Oringo by Pronovias from Bridal Couture by Josephine. It felt lovely, and I didn't want to take it off. I accessorised with a sparkly belt and long veil.

"Craig opted for a Ted Baker suit with a navy polka dot tie, that looked amazing."

Merewen and Leona chose to get married at Broadoakes Country House. "It was the perfect mixture of theatrical and musical, both of which are very important to us," shares Merewen. "The grounds and house are beautiful, and we fell in love with the place.

"As it was close to December, we requested the festive lights were put up for our wedding. We also had log fires burning when our guests arrived. The fact that more of our friends and family could stay on site meant we could make a full weekend of it."

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!"
