PA and marketing manager, Sarah Watkinson reveals how you can relax before the big day.
"Wedding planning can be stressful, but there are ways to help you feel more relaxed. The main thing to remember is to make time for yourself in the lead up to the wedding. Whether it's a day to yourself, without any planning or a trip to a salon with some of your friends to take your mind off it all.
"At Lottie Loves Beauty, we offer bespoke treatments that are tailor-made to suit your needs and can design a package that targets relaxation and stress relief before the big day.
"The great thing about treatments is that you can relax and unwind while the therapist takes care of the much needed bridal prep in a calm environment. Whether it's preparing your nails and giving them the attention they need or booking a course of facials to make your skin look it's absolute best, it's worth treating yourself."

Hair stylist, Gemma Louise Smith reveals her top tips for styling long, straight hair.
"Preparation is key. Heated rollers will add volume and bounce to your tresses. It will also make it easier to create a romantic up do, or if you'd prefer it down, you could add romantic waves.
"If you want an up do, but your hair is thick and straight, I would purchase bobby pins that are stronghold. These are more expensive and can be bought from most wholesale hairdressing stores. They hold your locks like scaffolding rather than bending and slipping like shop-bought ones. Once you're used to rollers, you'll find it much easier to get creative.
"For a more boho style, opt for a simple plait with flowers. These look great in long hair or a more formal ponytail. I'd always recommend having a few trial attempts either with your stylist or just having a play around with ideas at home before the day."

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."
