Romantic just-wed beach shots are always a winner, especially at sunset. This one of happy couple Kate and Adam French was taken by Norfolk-based photographer Esther Wild and perfectly captures the relaxed theme of their seaside wedding in Cromer.
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 Sarah and Robert's love story.
Sarah says: "We knew each other but never really spoke. Thirteen years later, I moved back to Lancashire and decided to join Facebook. I messaged Rob, and as our favourite football team had made it through to the 2008 League One play-off-final, I asked if he had plans to go. Luckily, he had tickets and offered me a spare. We had an amazing time and exchanged texts for a few days afterwards. He asked if I fancied going to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and we've been together ever since. Robert popped the question on 26th February, 2017. It was the day after my 40th birthday. Rob surprised me with a night away at the Wasdale Head Inn. He planned to propose at the top of Great Gable. It's the first mountain that we climbed together and has always held a special place in our hearts. However, the weather was atrocious, so we decided to go for a walk instead. We wandered around, admiring the surroundings, when Rob passed me his phone and said 'look at this.' It was a video of our beautiful boys saying 'mummy, will you marry daddy?' I literally sunk to my knees and started to cry. It was the perfect way of proposing, and we couldn't have been happier.”

Autumn is a fabulous time of year to tie the knot, with an abundance of beautiful colours, flowers and styling options to choose from. We spoke to Natalie Doney from Fox Photography Cardiff about what inspired her.
She said: "We wanted to create two different styles. Everyone's imagination went wild, from the flowers right through to the make-up. Both styles looked amazing, and we couldn't be happier with the results."

I feel I can get lost in this picture along with the newlyweds, who look completely emerged in the intimate white bubble that is their wedding day.
Captured by Craig Clewlow, of New Road Photography, he adds, “This has to my favourite shot of 2019 so far just because the image was looking amazing just before I took it, then to be graced with swans and there babies was just shear fate of human beings and animals sharing a moment of unconditional love especially when swans mate for life. It creates its own story and I was blessed to capture it.”
