Make-up artist, Donna Ashcroft reveals her top tips for not overdoing your make-up.

"You can still look and feel glamorous on your big day without overdoing it. If you're used to a more natural look, then don't feel the need to change that. Prep your skin and use a quality primer. This will help to minimise pores and keep your make-up in place throughout the day. A good foundation is key. There are lots of versions available that offer decent coverage without being too heavy. My particular favourites are Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. If you would like an extra glow, try mixing in an illuminator. To contour, use a powder that is two or three shades darker than your natural skin tone. Purchase a small round fluffy brush, and tap off any excess before applying it to the hollow of your cheeks and forehead. Apply a liquid or powder blusher to the apples of your cheeks, and brush a highlighter across your cheekbones. To avoid any unwanted shine, use a translucent fixing powder on your T-zone and any areas you feel are too shiny. Finish with a smoky or natural eye and false lashes."

Real wedding couple, Nicole and Matthew wanted to keep their guests entertained throughout the day.

Nicole tells us: "To keep our nearest and dearest entertained, we hired a selfie mirror from Photobooth Cumbria. The team set up quickly and had a huge selection of props. The machine printed two photos, which meant our loved ones could take one home and put one in our guestbook. We also hired All Star Disco to be our DJ for the night. Everyone was kept amused until midnight, and the company also provided a confetti cannon, which was brilliant!"

We spoke to Tracey Rothwell from Little Cherry Cake Company and asked for her top tips on buying a cake.

She said: “Most cake designers will be booked at least 12 months in advance, so give yourself plenty of time to find a company you like. Have fun with the design. Ignore other people's opinions and opt for a creation that you both want. Let your cake designer help. It's their job to show you the latest trends and create something you'll both adore."
