Louisa and Jonny hit it off right away. “Jonny would regularly come to the local social club where I worked, and we would just chat,” says the bride. “We really liked each other and exchanged numbers. After a few weeks of texting and calls, Jonny asked me out on a date, and that's where it all started. He always said he would catch me off guard and propose when I least expected it. In December 2017, we had booked to take our two children to Disneyland Paris. As the date was getting closer, I thought that this was his opportunity to do it, as he knows how much I love Disney and it would have been absolutely perfect, but to my surprise he didn't propose. On Christmas Day, a few days after our Disneyland trip, we were opening our presents when Jonny got up and pulled a box out of the tree. Jonny is a bit of a joker, so I honestly didn't expect the box to be an engagement ring until he got down on one knee, opened the box and asked me to marry him. I was still in my pyjamas, but Jonny definitely kept his promise by catching me off guard, and it was perfect.”

Teri and Kyle met at work. “We went on to have our own business together,” says Teri. “Kyle will tell you that he only asked me out to get a pay rise, but six years later, we're still together, and he never got that pay rise.”

Kyle popped the question during a surprise weekend away in 2019. “He only revealed where we were going when we got to the airport,” shares the bride. “He took me to Rome, which was where we went on our first holiday together and he had asked me to be his girlfriend three years earlier.”

Rhiannon Holland from Mefus Photography tells us more about this spring-inspired shoot: “I wanted to create something fresh with the creative freedom to try new things. From bridal make-up with a pop of colour, to bridal jumpsuits and fedoras, we wanted to showcase our creative vision and perspective clients that you don't have to follow current wedding trends, you can try something new. I purposely didn't write a shot list, something I usually can't leave the house without! I created some moodboards and brought a dream team together. On the day, we all felt relaxed and excited. There were no time pressures, no couples to please, just an opportunity to work together and create something beautiful. I used vintage lenses for most of the photo shoot, which meant I had to manually focus, this forced me to take my time and really think about the light and composition, rather than just 'click, click, click!'. The venue was perfect as there were so many different areas with different colour schemes and fabulous natural light. I'm so grateful to all the suppliers who gave their time and creativity to the photo shoot, and we're all very proud of what we achieved that day. The overall vibe is calm and ethereal, with a hint of regal elegance.”

Photographs are more than just keepsakes. It's a way of reliving those happy memories over and over again and reminding yourself of just how magical your special day was. The run up to the wedding can be quite stressful and some things, like the weather, may feel out of your control but try not to worry, you can still have a picture-perfect album come rain or shine, as KEM Radford Photography shows in this big-day shot.

Lauren and Gaz met in the summer of 2017. “Gaz was volunteering at my cattle ranch in Wyoming,” says Lauren. “We were just friends until he went to leave, and sparks began to fly. When Gaz returned to the UK, we stayed in touch and after a few days, he had already booked his flight back to the ranch. His second stay was a little more romantic, and by the end of it, I had decided to follow him over to Wales for the winter season while he got his degree.”

Gaz proposed in Clyne Woods near where he grew up in Swansea on New Year's Day. “It was such a lovely spot, and it was so special that it was just us and our dog in the beautiful forest,” shares the bride. “The proposal itself wasn't a surprise as we had talked about it for a long time, but it was a really special moment, and I loved the ring that he picked out.”

Meet Rhian Rees From Wild And Fabulous Flowers tells us her flower trend predictions.

“The pandemic has meant that people have spent more time outside and this has resulted in a shift towards more seasonal flowers.

"More couples are asking where their flowers come from. When British flowers are available, we try to use local farmers where possible. Re-purposing your flowers is also important. Why not use the church flowers on the bar table or place meadow troughs along the aisle and then along the top table?

"This year I am seeing far less coffees and creams. There has been a shift towards larger displays and installations. Church porches decorated with big displays, huge urns full of blooms, flower clouds, arches and big table garlands. They all create the most amazing atmosphere and are the perfect backdrops for photographs."

Vicki Anthony tells us her top tips for choosing two dresses that don't overpower each other.

"I would start by talking to each other and finding out what your likes and dislikes are. There are so many showstopping wedding dresses that would look great together. If you both love lace, then perhaps look for different silhouettes, for instance, one of you in a fitted shape and the other in an A-line silhouette.

"Book an appointment in the same shop, so the boutique can ensure your fabulous wedding dress is removed from the rail so that when your wife-to-be comes to visit, your dress isn't in sight, and there is no danger of you choosing the same gown! If you both request an appointment with the same consultant, they can also guide you away from something too similar.

Molly and Marc met when they were teenagers. “We just clicked right away,” says Molly. “Marc proposed on a safari in Dubai in 2017. It was a complete surprise! The jeep pulled into a sand dune as the sun was rising, and there were rose petals and candles set up for us.”

Photographer Megan-Sian Vickery tells us if it's worth having a pre-wedding photo shoot.

"A pre-wedding shoot is a perfect opportunity for you to meet your photographer while they're working their camera. See how you interact with each other and ask yourself, are they someone you feel comfortable around? Could you spend all day with them?

"Having your photo taken is not something people do every day, and you might feel uncomfortable just at the thought. That being the case, a pre-wedding shoot offers you the perfect opportunity to feel at ease in front of the camera so that when the big day arrives, you'll look and, most importantly, feel comfortable. If you have any questions or worries, a pre-wedding shoot can help ease your mind."
