We spoke to Shenaz Lake-Thomas from Lake Thomas Cakes and asked for her top cake tips.
"Be realistic with your budget and honest with your chosen supplier. Decide in advance how many people you want to cater for as this will determine how many tiers you need. Decide how many flavours you want to offer your guests. Just keep in mind that some options are more expensive than others.”
Turn to page 61 of the current issue to see more of her fabulous work.

We spoke to Emma Buckley from Malvern Wedding Cars and asked for her top tips for choosing the perfect transport.
"Choosing transport for your nuptials always comes down to two things: what fits with your day and who do you trust to provide it? Take into consideration the aesthetics of the vehicle. Does it complement the bride's dress, flowers and time of year? Don't forget the car will appear in your photographs, so you want something that's both practical and visually appealing.
When looking for a trustworthy supplier, you need to take into consideration will they be on the time on the day, are they properly insured, are the chauffeurs experienced and is the vehicle properly maintained? If there's a problem on the day, ask if they have an alternative car they could use at short notice."

I love bride Ally's wedding dress.
She said: "I chose a vintage Sassi Holford gown from Pritchard & Moore. It had daffodils on it, which I loved. I changed my dress for the evening reception and accessorised it with a jewellery set that my grandmother had given me for my 18th birthday. Unfortunately, I'd lost the necklace so Northern Star Jewellery worked really hard to recreated it from old photos.”

I love what Carl Dwyer from Napoli Woodfired Pizza has to say about street food.
He says: "Street food is trending more than ever of late and getting very popular for weddings, especially for evening time. Key things to look out for are to check a business via their social media profiles, to see how popular they are – and how much they engage with their social following. Check out their reviews on Facebook, Google and Trip Advisor, and if possible contact a couple of wedding reviewers for feedback on their service and value.
"You can also choose to visit them at events or their usual trading place to get a feel for their customer service – and of course try their food before you commit. It's best to get several quotes from different vendors, too, to help you ensure you make the right choice for your big day."

I love what Julia West from Julia and You has to say about taking natural photos. She says: "My best advice is take a walk with your new wife and chat, this allows for a beautiful natural photo, no-one telling you to smile because naturally you will do so without prompting on your wedding day. Whilst I always take shots after the ceremony of you both, my favourite time is golden hour, which is an hour before the sun sets and the light is low and often after dinner so you are both so relaxed."

I love Caroline Chamberlain, owner of Caroline Chamberlain Couture Bridal Studio's advice when it comes to dancing the night away in a elegant and comfortable dress.
She says: "A boho inspired dress is a great look to go for if you're looking for something elegant and easy to move in. Bohemian inspired gowns are usually made using soft lightweight fabrics such as tulles, lace or chiffon, which makes them very easy to wear. They lend themselves to a more relaxed look but still very fitting for the occasion and definitely a style you can dance the night away in!
