Local photographer, Vicky Dubois reveals how you can incorporate summer into your big-day pictures.
"Living in Great Britain, our weather can be glorious one day and wet the next, so my top tip is be prepared! Take into consideration that the sunshine can have a positive and negative impact on your day. In the morning and evening, the sun is low and can offer flattering lighting, dramatic silhouettes and romantic sun flares. However, the red hot sun at mid-day will make you squint, cause harsh shadows and leave sweaty faces.
"Our beautiful country is lush and green because of the rain but don't worry we can use downpours to our advantage! Obviously, we want the best weather for you, but just in case, I always have a collection of stylish umbrellas with me for couples to choose from. Just remember, you can't control the weather, so whatever happens, a great photographer will be prepared to capture your day with you in mind."

We spoke to Jo Campbell from Harrison's Flowers and asked for her top tips on choosing summer blooms.
"Summer weddings have an abundance of bright blooms to choose from, including delphiniums, dahlias, roses and perennials. Your arrangements can serve a dual purpose. Create an aisle using buckets decorated with moss and bunting and transfer these onto long trestle tables for the reception. To avoid waste, lift the blooms out of the containers at the end of the evening and gift them to your guests."
