I love this look that Manchester-based make-up artist Ariana Rose created. She said: “I wanted to produce a style that was inspired by recent trends but was classic to a degree. To enhance our model's features, I focused on her flawless skin and defined her eyes. My main focus is on creating the best possible version of my clients. The dresses were designed by Berta Bridal and having followed her on social media for some time, I fell in love with how fashion-forward and special her designs are. The Wedding Club stocked her fabulous collection, so they were the obvious choice."

The image was photographed by Beth Alderson Photography. To see more stunning pictures, check out the full shoot on page 89 of the current issue.

I love this cake featured in Nicola and Daniel's real wedding.

Bride Nicola said: "Dan and I chose a three-tier cake from J'aime Cakes Kendal. We chose four flavours: raspberry, white chocolate, chocolate orange and carrot. To add a touch of elegance, we placed the bake on top of a geometric stand."
