The team primarily cover the old county of Dyfed and offer a variety of vehicles including vintage options, sports cars like the impressive Lamborghini Huracán Performante and Shire horses and carriages.

The owner, Euryd Jones, tells us more about the company: “We pride ourselves on the cars we offer and that all our packages come with personalised ribbons, champagne and the couple's favourite music. Last year was difficult for the wedding industry, and since 2021 is uncertain, we're offering a 100 per cent refund should your wedding be cancelled for whatever reason.

“As a family-run business, the cars are looked after by myself and my son, Dylan, who is the owner of an award-winning video production company, Cynhyrchiad CLIC Productions, and my daughter, Lia, who owns Pinco Beauty Salon. We offer transport, videography and make- up and if all three are booked then we also apply a discount.”

Leena and Neil met in 2012 at a music festival in Derbyshire. “It was the last night and a few friends and I decided to enjoy a few drinks,” says Leena. “In one of the tents, we saw three handsome guys and started to talk to them. I was attracted to Neil's looks and the fact he was present when we had a chat together. He was attracted to my red lips and Scandinavian looks.”

Four years later, Neil proposed during a weekend getaway at Southwold Beach in Norfolk. “We were enjoying a trip with our eldest daughter, and I was eight months pregnant with our second,” shares the bride. “I was watching the waves and as I turned around our daughter, Lumi, was holding a box with a beautiful ring, and Neil was down on one knee. We had been talking about getting married for a few years, but I was still incredibly surprised.”

Hair and make-up artist, Natalie Mace gives us her top tips for creating a spring-inspired look.

"Spring weddings make me think of soft romantic hair, relaxed curls partly done up with fresh flowers or a beautiful up do with lots of texture and softly framing your face.

"For your make-up, I suggest keeping the colours very neutral. Golds and browns or blush pinks and nude tones paired with a soft liner are always popular. Don't go for anything too heavy and finish the look with a natural, fluffy lash. For your base, I would use a light-weight foundation giving your complexion a fresh dewy look. Pair it with a blush lip painted with a hint of colour but nothing too bold enhancing all your natural beauty."

Sarah and Ibrahim had to postpone their wedding due to COVID-19. Sarah tells us: "We were due to get married in June 2020, but due to COVID-19, we had to postpone our wedding until September. We didn't want to delay it again, so we decided to ahead with an intimate micro wedding with 20 guests. We couldn't think of anywhere more perfect than Gileston Manor Estate. It's such a beautiful and intimate venue, and we were able to have our dream wedding outdoors in the secret garden. For us, it ended up being exactly what we wanted, and we wouldn't have had it any other way."

Wedding stationer, Amy Jones tells us how you can incorporate Valentine's Day into your stationery.

"If your day will be overflowing with roses and littered with heart confetti, then opt for a stationery suite complete with luxury envelope liners, illustrated with extravagant watercoloured roses and deep red envelopes. Finish off with a glamorous gold foiler monogram of your initials.

"Alternatively, if you're after something quirky, then why not go for pastel-coloured invitations? Each dainty card can be laser cut into the shape of a heart, paired with a soft san serif typeface that resembles the iconic Love Hearts sweets.

"Sometimes less is more. Take things back to basics with a crisp ivory card stock and elegant typography. When the design is this minimal, you should pay extra attention to the wording. I would include a romantic poem or try writing your own. The personal touches it what makes it extra special.

"The possibilities are endless, so now is the time to get pinning on your mood board. The more inspiration you can gather, the better! With the help of a stationer, you'll be able to create the perfect stationery suite."

To find out more about this gorgeous set of images, we spoke to local photographer, Kate Richards. She tells us: “I started chatting to Kirsten from Queen of the Meadow about organising a photo shoot. I suggested a choice of themes, and she decided on autumn as it's a beautiful time of year and she only uses seasonal flowers. All the blooms and foliage used in the shoot were locally grown, and the fresh arrangements were provided by Blue Hill Flora.”

Lumi Event Design was tasked with creating the table design. “She was inspired by her surroundings,” explains Kate. “Lisa and Tor wanted to use rustic, earthy elements utilising the venue's existing furniture, with natural materials for the place settings. To add softness and colour, they chose neutral fabrics with touches of gold to bring all the details to life.”

The impressive cakes were made by Piece of Cake Wales. “Rowanne wanted designs that were understated and elegant using soft lines and subtle textures whilst fitting in beautifully with the natural environment,” adds Kate. “On the first design, a tier separator was used to create an illusion and add height. Soft ruffles with delicate guilting encase the tiers adding gentle texture to a sleek design. The second creation featured a hand-painted stone effect with impressive sweeping ruffles.

The complete the look, Dwynwen by Ryan Thomas provided the stationery. “Ryan aimed to stay true to my simplicity and tone of voice but carefully blend it with an earthy and relaxed finish,” says Kate. “He used hand-torn detailing to create texture, opulent and tactile velvet ribbons and a touch of metallic gold to add a hint of luxury and glamour.”
