Linda and Geoffrey tied the knot at Langshott Manor with a red, black and white theme. 17 91 37 The latest best buys and product launches for the groom-to-be. 79 P.S. Bridal has collaborated with a team of talented suppliers to create this fashionable shoot. It dawned on me a few weeks ago that this is my final issue before I become a married woman – it still feels weird saying that! Our July 2022 wedding is just around the corner, and I don’t know where the time has gone. I’ve just had my final dress fitting, my hair and make-up trial and confirmed all the lastminute details but I still feel like I’m forgetting something! My partner and I are planning to sit down together at the end of the month and iron out all the small details so we can spend the next few weeks relaxing. We were finally able to notice this month, which was a big relief. Our local registry office is still overwhelmed by the backlog caused by the pandemic and is only taking bookings for weddings three months in advance, so we’ve had to wait until now to book our appointment, but thankfully it all went well. If you’re due to tie the knot soon, keep checking your council’s website for availability, as appointments are hard to come by. This issue, to help you on your planning journey, we’ve put together showstopping features focusing on flowers and how to look your big-day best. We’re also looking at venues in Epsom, Elmbridge, Weybridge and Leatherhead, the latest fashion trends and must-see honeymoon destinations. You can submit your wedding or styled shoot via email at or Melissa x Melissa Barker, Senior Editor Where does the time go?

We teach all over Surrey, Sussex and London and offer first dance lessons in our wonderful dance studio set in the beautiful wetlands of Woking. We have six teachers that help couples learn and perfect their dances. We love to create a routine and it’s such a joy to watch couples grow in confidence as the session progresses. We offer one-off lessons, packages, advice on the song choice, style and genre and how to make the dance work for you as a couple. From tangos and jives to rumbas and sambas, we’ve taught them all. We’ve seen dance trends come and go, especially with the popularity of Strictly Come Dancing and TikTok. However, our favourite remains the dances that the couples elevate to the next level in terms of personal significance. From teaching basic steps to full-on flash-mob-style routines, every couple has different needs for their big day.
