Georgia and Matt hosted their wedding at The Fleece Inn. "What really attracted us to The Fleece Inn was its rustic English setting," says the bride. "The Medieval barn is from the early 15th-century and hasn't been modernised, which we loved. The venue is just as stunning inside, with wooden oak beams lined with garlands and fairylights. The apple orchard is also beautiful and was the perfect setting for our guests to enjoy their welcome drinks and canapes in the sun. We wanted a relaxed, country-themed wedding, and The Fleece Inn was perfect for that."

Local photo booth expert, Karl Fellows from Fells Fotos reveals how you can keep your guests entertained during the evening reception.

"Weddings are one of the best events for bringing people together, and keeping guests entertained is a key part of the day for brides and grooms. A photo booth is an excellent addition to any celebration and a great way of ensuring your loved ones are having fun during your special day. What better way to bring people together than with fun props in front of the camera?

"As a photo booth owner, I have attended lots of events, and I have not seen one guest left sitting when the photo booth is open. It brings people together and adds fun to your event while keeping your friends and family entertained. When looking for a provider, I advise you to look for recommendations and reviews. Find someone who's open about what the cost of hire covers with a contract for you to sign, and is friendly and willing to answer questions, no matter how small."

Alice and Nick met 11 years ago in sixth form and tied the knot at Moor Hall Hotel & Spa.

Alice tells us: "My mum maid our three-tier wedding cake. We had planned to order a personalised cake-topper, but as we didn't have time to source one, we managed to find a Mr & Mrs topper in a local cake shop. To display the bake, we used an old whiskey barrel that we picked up from a local scrapyard last winter. We decorated the top of the barrel with fake eucalyptus and roses."

A group of local suppliers worked together to create this boho-themed shoot at The Lion Ballroom. Lynee Jessett from Lynne Jessett Floristry tells us: “The inspiration came from lots of greenery and having to think outside the box. I wanted to create something quirky to complement the gorgeous dress and not become a wallflower and meld into the background. I thought about texture and used grass and long drapes of amaranthus with a pop of deep wine now and then. We wanted to take full advantage of the regency look of The Lion Ballroom and had envisioned a mixture of boho and Pride and Prejudice. What would the marriage of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy look like in the 21st century? We managed to create two looks that complemented each other while still looking warm and inviting.”

When it comes to decorating your wedding venue, the options are endless. Whether you want to incorporate your favourite colour, a particular theme or showcase your personalities, there's a lot you need to take into consideration.

Becky from Foxglove & Black gives us some of her top tips for creating an eco-friendly look: "Reduce your food waste. Did you know that a 10th of all wedding food gets thrown away? If you're worried about waste, why not consider fake tiers on your cake or giving your guests some to take home in a care package?

“Rethink your confetti. It may not be something you'd think about, but throwing paper isn't environmentally friendly. Instead, why not consider more biodegradable options such as lavender, rose petals or a mix of micro flowers? It's much better for the planet and gives a stunning mixture of colours in your photos."

Gill and Simon first met in Bognor Regis in 2001. “Simon was visiting for work,” says Gill. “He was staying at my local pub, and we got chatting over a game of pool. He was only due to stay for one more night, so we made plans to go into town that evening. The next day instead of heading home, he decided to stay. We remained in contact for several months over the phone, and in December of that year, a bunch of beautiful lilies were delivered to the travel agency where I worked. I realised then that he'd been thinking of me and how kind and thoughtful he was. We continued to have a long-distance romance for the next three years, travelling 160 miles either way at every opportunity we had. We quite often got up at 4:30am on a Monday morning to travel home for work so we could have a few more hours together. I decided to move to Warwick in 2005, and we've since moved to Leamington.”

Local cake maker, Sally Yarnold from Don't Go Baking My Heart Cakes tells us how you can choose a big-day bake suitable for a small wedding.

"Having a small wedding bake can still have as much of an impact as a large, tiered design. Small creations don't have to be understated unless that's the style you want and they should taste just as amazing. You still have lots of options and if you're worried about friends and family missing out, ask your supplier to supply pre-boxed slices as a gesture to let them know you were thinking about them on your special day.

"When choosing your cake maker, request a consultation and tasting. At the moment many suppliers have adapted their services and are offering consultations via video call and are creating taster boxes to be posted to you. Some couples are finding that being able to plan from the comfort of their own home is a more enjoyable and relaxing experience. This also means you don't have any pressure when making decisions about your favourite flavours, as you aren't sitting in front of your supplier."

Your hubby-to-be might opt for cufflinks, a tie pin or perhaps a hatpin.

"If you're looking for something special, why not have a bespoke piece made with your style in mind? Bespoke jewellery is a great way to tell your story on your wedding day, and you can get the most out of your jewels by choosing a piece that you'll be able to wear again and again.

Amy and Daniel met through a mutual friend at university. “What attracted us to Ettington Park Hotel was its elegance and charm," says Amy. "We wanted to give our guests, who were travelling from all over the world, a traditional British experience. We started planning our wedding four months before the big day and were doing so on a budget, so when we saw that the venue had late availability Christmas wedding packages, we were so excited. Ettington Park Hotel also provided our catering, which was high quality and planned perfectly down to the smallest details."
