I love Abbie and Simone's love story.

Simone says: "We got talking, and things went from there. We dated for a few months before I finally plucked up the courage to ask her to be my girlfriend. Last Christmas Eve we'd been together for seven years, and they've been the happiest years of our lives.
"Abbie popped the question during a magical trip to America. She'd asked my parents for their permission to marry me before we went on holiday to celebrate my 30th birthday. She asked her grandma if she could borrow a ring to propose with and was stressed that she'd lose it. While we were in San Francisco, we went on a bicycle ride and just before we reached the Golden Gate Bridge, there was a secluded spot at the side of the river with beautiful views. We laid down our bikes, and she got down on one knee and proposed! For the rest of the trip, we couldn't stop smiling.”

Rachel Smith from Shikamo told us how this wonderful shoot came to be: “Celebrant SJ and I decided to create a styled shoot that showcased how things could be done a little differently when it comes to your wedding day, and what better way to do that than getting married at a bowling alley? We wanted to show that flowers work in any environment, so we got in touch with Ken Fraser Florist who created a stunning centrepiece incorporating a bowling pin which allowed our theme to flow throughout the décor.”
Love Lace Bridal Boutique and Suit Direct provided the dress and suit. “The team created smart but modern outfits,” says Rachel. “The leather jackets were supplied by Rock Paper Nib. It was a real showstopper and demonstrated that you don't have to necessarily stick with what's considered normal. Other trinkets like the eco-friendly favours, doughnut wall, bespoke invitations and personalised embroidered hankies really enhanced the shoot. The whole day was full of energy and the photographer, Dave Thompson, captured the fun perfectly.”

Local florist, Joanne Campbell from Harrison's Flowers reveals how you can incorporate the season spring into your big-day blooms.

"Your flowers should reflect a little bit of your personality and sense of style. Luckily spring is a fabulous time with an abundance of gorgeous blooms to choose from, including sherbet pastels, classic whites, creams, verdant greens and blues.
"Peonies, roses and ranunculi ooze romance, while British-grown tulips, narcissi, freesia and muscari have a fresh, timeless and simple elegance. Tulips have a natural, wild path of their own and look stunning when allowed to flow naturally.
"The style of your gown is a key factor in choosing the design of your bouquet.
"Choose centrepieces that will complement your venue, whether it's rustic, country, classical or boho, you'll find that spring flowers and colours work beautifully with them all."

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."

Make-up artist, Daniella Ingle reveals her top tips for creating the perfect wedding day look.

"Getting stuck in a routine with your make-up is more common than you might think. On your wedding day, you want to look and feel like the best version of yourself, but that doesn't mean you have to wear crazy colours that are totally out of your comfort zone.
"A good artist will ask what you like and dislike, the coverage you prefer, the style you're hoping to achieve and much more. My best advice is to book a trial and arrive with your normal look so your supplier can get an idea of your everyday style.
Opt for hues that suit your skin tone. This will enhance your features and is the key to a beautiful bridal look. A defined eye, perfect brows, and flawless skin are sometimes all you need. If you want to up the ante, research and find your dream style. This can be a good reference for your supplier and is easier than trying to describe your vision.
"When you leave your trial, wear the make-up all day. Look in every mirror and window you see, take selfies and maybe even try on your dress. By the end of the day, you'll know whether you love or hate it. If it's the latter, book another trial and explain to your artist what it was you didn't like and go from there. Remember, you don't have to settle for less than perfect on your wedding day."
