Emily and Thomas had an intimate celebration with close family and friends at The Wellbeing Farm

Emily and Thomas have known each other since they were children. "We attended the same nursery and secondary school," says Emily.

We then spent time living in different cities before moving back to Bolton, where we bought our first house together." Thomas popped the question during a holiday to Amsterdam. "It was January 2019," shares the bride. "At which point we'd been dating for almost nine years, so even he admits it was long overdue!"... read more

How to get smooth skin in the run-up to your big day

How to get smooth skin in the run-up to your big day

I'm a firm believer that what you put into your body shows on the outside, so good skin comes from within! Here are some of my top tips for creating a flawless look: Eat well – lots of greens and raw vegetables. Regular exercise, the type that gets you really sweaty, it's great for your complexion, and your pores will love you for it. Drink plenty of water! Try to avoid or reduce alcohol at least a week before the wedding as it dehydrates the skin. Sleep as much as you can in the run-up. No matter how many magic eye potions and masks you use, lack of sleep always shows! If you wake up with puffy eyes on the day, pop eye masks on, or simply hold a couple of cold teaspoons under your eyes for a minute or two.... read more

Just a wedding

Just a wedding

When Mark Lee from Mark Lee Photography set up this shoot at Cheshire's Park Manor, he wanted to seek out like minded suppliers to collaborate on creating stunning inclusive images; and what better showcase this gorgeous shoot than Pride Month! Mark says, "For months I've been coming across posts on Facebook on issues from the LGBTQ+ community over double standards within the wedding industry. Some finding that they were being charged more or that some suppliers just wouldn't work with a same sex couple. Then a supplier wanted to know how to create a logo for same sex supplier so not to offend. And another supplier unsure how to word his contract... this got me thinking. Why is this so difficult? Why does there need to be an issue regardless of who you are and who you want to marry? The law has changed so why are people still living in the dark ages? It's time to accept everyone."... read more

1920s wedding inspiration from renowned wedding planner

If you are looking for a wedding day with sophistication and style, you won't go far wrong with 1920s wedding inspiration to shape your big day. Celebrity wedding planner, entertainment agent and hospitality consultant, Liz Taylor of the Taylor Lynn Corporation, has noticed a recent renewed vigour among her clients for 1920s weddings. Here she shares her tips on how to create the atmosphere of the roaring twenties for a style-packed wedding: "Extravagant. Exuberant. Unrivalled glamour. And incorporating those alluring Art Deco touches that are synonymous with the era, a twenties wedding is, and always should be, a celebration in style," begins Liz. "Since lockdown began to lift, we've been inundated with requests for 1920s themed parties. People want to just let go and have fun, so what better era than the roaring twenties." "It may seem that a 1920s themed wedding is easy, but if you go over the top the event can feel gimmicky. The aim is to achieve the perfect balance of stylish 1920s touches without feeling like you've stepped onto the set of the Great Gatsby."... read more
