Leena and Neil met in 2012 at a music festival in Derbyshire. “It was the last night and a few friends and I decided to enjoy a few drinks,” says Leena. “In one of the tents, we saw three handsome guys and started to talk to them. I was attracted to Neil's looks and the fact he was present when we had a chat together. He was attracted to my red lips and Scandinavian looks.”

Four years later, Neil proposed during a weekend getaway at Southwold Beach in Norfolk. “We were enjoying a trip with our eldest daughter, and I was eight months pregnant with our second,” shares the bride. “I was watching the waves and as I turned around our daughter, Lumi, was holding a box with a beautiful ring, and Neil was down on one knee. We had been talking about getting married for a few years, but I was still incredibly surprised.”

Local photo booth expert, Karl Fellows from Fells Fotos reveals how you can keep your guests entertained during the evening reception.

"Weddings are one of the best events for bringing people together, and keeping guests entertained is a key part of the day for brides and grooms. A photo booth is an excellent addition to any celebration and a great way of ensuring your loved ones are having fun during your special day. What better way to bring people together than with fun props in front of the camera?

"As a photo booth owner, I have attended lots of events, and I have not seen one guest left sitting when the photo booth is open. It brings people together and adds fun to your event while keeping your friends and family entertained. When looking for a provider, I advise you to look for recommendations and reviews. Find someone who's open about what the cost of hire covers with a contract for you to sign, and is friendly and willing to answer questions, no matter how small."

Local dance specialist, Emma Brewer from First Dance reveals how you can create a wow-factor dance that you're both comfortable with.

"There are lots of things you can do in this situation. Not all first dances have the wow factor, in fact, most couples that come to us just want to look natural, unchoreographed and comfortable on the dancefloor. The first thing to do is to choose your music and pick something that you both love. Then you can have a one-off lesson where you will learn how to get around the dancefloor. Alternatively, you could book a package of three or more lessons whereby it still looks natural, but at least you will have something up your sleeve, so you don't have to go on the floor and wing it. It's very hard to improvise when you have no dancing skills, so find someone to help you with the basics and take it from there. Chances are your partner who wasn't sure will love it. After all, what's better than dancing to a song you love with the person you love?"

Local florist, Bethany Byrne from Flowers by Jemma Holmes reveals how you can choose natural flowers.

"When a client is going for a relaxed wedding we normally suggest sticking to the basics and adding on where necessary. Start with the bridal bouquet. You don't want to mix up relaxed and minimal/simple. A relaxed bouquet can be a mixture of colours and varieties that look handpicked and tied together at home giving off a natural homemade feel. Next, we would suggest opting for something complementary for bridesmaids in a smaller size and for buttonholes a simple cluster of flowers bound with some twine.

"Now you have your basics done it's your choice to extend and dress the venue or leave it showing its natural beauty. If you'd like to add a little something, items like loose-laid foliage on long tables, glass vases/jars showcasing some natural florals and foliage loosely placed in and tea lights work perfectly. Giving that effortless look to finish your relaxed wedding."

Our magazines are packed to the brim with expert advice! 

Q: We're great cake lovers and want a showstopper for our wedding that's right on trend. What would you suggest?
Helen says: Large three- or four-tier cakes are still the most popular choice, however if you're having a more intimate wedding, two tiers can look just as fabulous dressed using a mix of beautiful sugar flowers and natural dried ones to add height. Other key trends include:

  • Pretty florals using stunning dried, edible and handmade sugar flowers are very popular. I absolutely love creating sugar flowers as they are the perfect addition to a beautiful cake. Team them with a little pampas or dried bunny tail grass for a stunning design that your guests will be swooning over.
  • Decorative details such as marbling with metallics and different textures like ruffles are also a big talking point and will make your cake stand out. Alternatively opt for a clean simple style using pretty green foliage for a minimalist look. Semi naked and buttercream creations remain popular and are great for a beautiful rustic theme.
  • Bold colours can look dramatic and create a real talking point. Black is incredibly striking dressed with the right flowers and you'll certainly wow your guests with deep rich hues teamed with stunning florals.
  • Display your wedding cake perfectly on a pedestal cake stand, raising it up high for all to see. Make it a real focal point by creating a whole table with matching mini cakes and beautifully iced biscuits for all your guests to enjoy.

When Shona and Dan met online they quickly discovered that they had plenty in common. “Dan tested my knowledge of country music and apparently I passed the test! We went for drinks and dinner for our first date followed by a trip to Skegness the next day and then the day after that Dan took me out on his Harley-Davidson motorbike, and that was that,” recalls Shona.
They set the date for 7th October, 2019 and chose Bassmead Manor Barns in Cambridgeshire as the perfect setting for their country wedding. Shona explains, “It was the first and only venue we looked at. The charm and beauty of the Rickety Barn sold it to us immediately and we booked our date on the first viewing. We loved that we could have the entire day there, from getting ready to going to bed.”
