Danii and Andrzej met at their local pub. “I was working there at the time,” says Danii. “Andrzej often came in with his friends and we connected through that. He was going to travel around Canada soon after, so we thought there wouldn't be a future, but we ended up speaking every day while he was abroad. He came back from travelling early, and the rest is history.”

Andrzej proposed during a trip to a Christmas market in Bath. “We were on a walk when he asked, and it was perfect,” shares the bride. “We booked our wedding for May 2020, but due to one of the many lockdowns, it couldn't go ahead. I decided I couldn't just let the day pass by sitting inside moping around, so I organised a socially-distanced street gathering. The rules stated we couldn't party, but we could be in our front gardens, so we decorated the street with bunting and invited our neighbours to set up chairs in their front gardens and join in the celebration. Our neighbour, Ian, is in a band and kindly offered to sing for us with his guitar and sound system. We had live music, a first dance in the middle of the road and many smiling faces to help us celebrate our love.”

Libbi Coldicott from Cranberry & Thyme tells us how you can cater for all dietary requirements.

"A grazing table is a great way to cater for everyone as it can be split into different sections to cater for various dietary requirements. Most grazing tables we create at Cranberry & Thyme have vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian and meat sections all on one table, with fresh fruit and raw vegetables, olives and dips to accommodate all needs without people feeling left out or having to bring their own food. For those with specific allergies, ask your supplier to create a separate platter just for them."

Beth and Scott met while on a photography course. “Scott was learning about portrait photography, and I was the subject,” says Beth. “We kept in touch as acquaintances over several years before developing a stronger friendship which blossomed into a relationship. We bonded over our slightly warped sense of humour and love of all things vintage. Aside from his good looks, I love Scott for his intelligence and how when he is talking about something he is passionate about, it's infectious, and you can't help but be excited with him. He is there for me and supports me in everything I do. He gives me the confidence to break out of my comfort zone and travel to new places.”

Michelle and Amy from The Wedding Bubble tell us more about how this set of images came to life: “Iron House is based in the heart of Birmingham in the Hockley district of the city. Home to the famous Jewellery Quarter, the Iron House is surrounded by original Victorian architecture, which can be seen at the venue's entrance and follows through to the bare brick walls and iron- framed windows on the inside. Inspired by our love of the city and its industrial qualities, we wanted to show the raw beauty it can create as an alternative backdrop to a wedding. Our concept called for wild, unstructured florals and candles as a contrast against the harshness of the space, and we had the perfect florist and stylist in mind to bring this to life in Little Garden Flowers and Junie Poonie."

Grace and Ben met at a birthday party. “I'd just returned from Las Vegas, and Ben was travelling there in a few months, so we were chatting about things to do and places to go for the majority of the barbecue,” says Grace. “After the party, I added Ben on Facebook. After several attempts and last-minute cancellations, we finally went on our first date 18 months later. The thing that attracted me to Ben was his sense of humour. I left the date with my jaw aching from how much I'd smiled and laughed the entire evening.”

Marketing executive, Bronagh Power tells us the latest dress trends.

"More than ever, brides-to-be are searching for unique dresses that are out of the ordinary and can be personalised. This trend has occurred from the ever-growing Pinterest boards and Instagram-worthy weddings. As a result, we are seeing the importance of our seamstresses more than ever. They work closely with our brides to help achieve exactly what they had envisioned.

"The regency era of puff sleeves are making a comeback within the bridal industry, as are square necklines and clean line skirts that are ideal for a less is more theme. We are also noticing lots of new 2022/2023 gowns with 3D detailing, so we expect this will be the next big wedding dress trend."
