This amazing cake by Southampton-based The Pastry Corner is a real headturner. With continued love for greenery and succulents it ticks a whole host of trend boxes. Owner of the business Alexandra Bishop explains the inspiration behind the gravity-defying creation.
"I designed it after being inspired by the succulent trend. I'd just had a succulent bowl done for my living room, and I loved the colours of the green against the grey tones, and the vision was born. We combined the marbled icing technique with the upcoming fashion for separations between cake tiers, to create a really standout one-of-a-kind cake."

I love this expert advice that Susanne Shah from Rosa Bridal Boutique shares for all those curvy girls out there.
She says: "I'd recommend a mermaid-style dress, with a corset back. This style will accentuate an hourglass figure while hugging your chest, waist and hips. The corset back allows the dress to pull you in and accentuate your waist, whilst showing off your curves. I call this the Jessica Rabbit look, beautifully feminine womanly curves, which is the reason your partner loves you!"

This wedding snap is a favourite of Cornish-based photographer Thomas Frost who covers weddings in both regions. He says, "This is one of my favourite photographs. It was a mix of good planning, a fun and relaxed couple and some good luck. I had scouted this area on the coast near Newquay and found that amazing sea cave. The couple were up for climbing down it and we had timed it for the magnificent sunset. There was this amazing light that blew us all away! It was such a special and amazing moment.”
