Ethical dress, accessory and floristry design company Roamer Rose based in Truro, Cornwall, work with nature, replicating the various visual delights showcased in the local landscapes during all seasons to tell a story.
At a client's request, owner Kyla will order in cut flowers endeavouring to use local, seasonal produce where possible, although she likes to make use of the local wildflower varieties, only taking what she needs to preserve them, and not removing anything that's protected.
Her work includes a hint of a fairytale from the forests, romance from the garden and mystical magic from the coastline.

Shelley and Luke met in 2011 at a friend's party and have been inseparable ever since!
When it came to the big day, they knew instantly that the Tythe Barn, Launton was for them as soon as they walked through the doors. “Everything about the barn was perfect, from the high-beamed fairylights, to the grounds and the beautiful wisteria walkway. We both really wanted an outdoor wedding – little did we know that the English weather would not allow this – and the setting was beyond perfect!” shares Shelley. “Tythe Barn could not have been more helpful even from our initial viewing of the venue and they answered question after question in the build-up always re-assuring us and making every effort to guarantee that we could have the day we wanted.”

Brains behind this shoot, Ashley King of Adorn by Ashley, wanted to create something as eco-friendly as possible whilst still looking colourful and fun. “I created a new range of veils, capes and hair accessories that were made using upcycled bottle plastic, organic silk and beads made from old glass bottles – I know it sounds rather crafty but I was thrilled with the outcome!”
The rest of the collaborators also had eco-touches to their products, “The gorgeous table runners are made using organic fabrics and hand-dyed using natural colourings. The dress was from the fabulous Bridal Reloved in Shrewsbury and even the make-up was vegan-friendly!” adds Ashley.

We asked Katy Warrington-Banfield from Cakes by Katy to send in her top tips for brides-to-be.
"Get to know your supplier and work with them to create a bespoke design for your big day. Tell them about your likes and dislikes and show them photos of cakes you like.
"I recommend adding a small cake to the top and not cutting it on the day. Instead, keep it for yourselves and enjoy it together after your nuptials. Cake freezes perfectly, so if you have any leftover and it wasn't frozen previously (check with your supplier), freeze it and enjoy it for months to come. You could even keep some for your first anniversary."

I love Charlotte and Jason's love story.
Charlotte says: "We met online in 2015. Jay plucked up the courage and messaged me asking me out on a date. When we finally met I thought he was a kind, caring and genuine guy.”
Jason popped the question during a trip to Dubai in 2017. He'd bought the ring a few days earlier and hid it in my parent's hotel room. He decided to do it while we were having drinks overlooking the Burj Al Arab before going out for dinner one evening. It was a complete surprise, and we couldn't have been happier.”

I love Emma and Elliott's love story.
Emma says: "It took us a few years to finally take the plunge and get together. I think it worked out perfectly as friendship is the perfect base for any relationship. Elliott popped the question during a trip to Thailand for my 30th birthday. We were surrounded by elephants after a day of trekking through the Chiang Mai Highlands. It was towards the end of the day, and it was just us and the elephants when Elliott got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was on such a high, and it took me by complete surprise. We then spent the most incredible three weeks travelling around Thailand.”
