Bride Justine explains this shot: "Ian and I performed a comedy dance routine that we'd choreographed in our living room. it began with Best Part of Me by Ed Sheeran, and then went into Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO, at which point the groom strutted his stuff, and did some Superman press-ups..."

Local stylist, Lauren Croker from Styled by LC reveals how you can style a marquee.
"The nicest thing about summer is those balmy evenings. As an alternative to flowers, I'm a massive fan of balloons. They come in different shades and sizes and when done properly look amazing!
"The idea of a lounge where your guests can chill out will give you a glamorous beach club vie. You can tie the furniture colour into your balloons to really finish it off.
"Palm & Leopard have launched a fizz wall. This allows guests to help themselves while also being a fab feature that would look great on Instagram. It can be customised with flowers to fit your colour scheme or perhaps mini balloons."

Local cake maker, Suzanne Thorp from The Frostery reveals how you can incorporate strong flavours into your big-day cake.
"For something unexpected, woody herbs such as rosemary, thyme and lavender would work well when teamed with more familiar citrus flavours. If you're having a tiered wedding cake, you have the opportunity to mix and match. You could opt for a one or two-tier design in a classic flavour and team it with something unusual. The season in which you're getting married may inspire you; think pears, pomegranates, maple syrup, figs and ginger for an autumn-inspired bake or strawberries, basil, rhubarb and lemon thyme for spring creations. One of our favourite combinations is an orange sponge cake with spiced cinnamon and cloves with a creamy and nutty tahini buttercream – yum!"

I love Rhian and Craig's love story.
Rhian says: "One of my bridesmaids, Sophie, set us up,” says Rhian. “I told her I wasn't interested in dating, but little did I know she'd given one of her fiancée's friends my number. Within half an hour Craig had messaged me, and when I finally built up the courage to respond we talked non-stop. He asked if I'd like to go on a date and the rest is history.”
"Craig popped the question during a trip to Las Vegas. “We were on holiday travelling around New York and Las Vegas,” shares the bride. “He was planning to propose in New York but got too nervous and ended up carrying the ring around in his pocket for five days. When we landed in Las Vegas, he waited until we were at Bellagio Fountains to ask. It was a big surprise, and the day was incredibly romantic.”

We love Charlotte and Luke's classic wedding at Suffolk's Hengrave Hall, captured by Pengelly Photography. As well as great photos, the couple had their big day filmed by Steve Hood so they can relive precious moments for years to come.
Charlotte says "Hiring a videographer was without a doubt the best decision we made. Steve captured moments of our wedding that we would have missed, such as our family and friends arriving while we were getting ready. We barely knew he was filming, he blended in with our guests and we have a wedding video to cherish and hopefully share with our children in the future."

We asked Ruth Gibbs from Life is in the Detail to send in one of her favourite images.
"“The ceremony was over, the confetti had been thrown, and the wind was blowing when the bride's veil flew over the groom's shoulder. The couple turned to look at each other, a look of love as they tried to take in the enormity of the occasion.”
