I love the beautiful flowers used in this regional shoot. We spoke to award-winning hair and make-up artist, Jodie Shires from Minxes about her inspiration.

She said: "We wanted the pictures to look fun, moving away from posed stagnant shots. We incorporated bright lips, neon lights, statement headbands, gold bottles and a French bulldog."

I adore real bride Sam's dress.

She said: "My dress was from Laura May Bridal in Cardiff. I wanted something that wasn't too formal and that would suit the beach. In the end, I opted for an Enzoani design called Gilly. I adored the A-line style, and I accessorised with a pearl headband and vintage shoes."

These beautiful blooms are featured in Claire and Luke's real wedding on page 37.

Bride Claire said: "The flowers were absolutely incredible! Lucy from Flowers, I do, did an outstanding job. I asked her to incorporate greenery, eucalyptus, texture and soft colours. We originally wanted a large arrangement for our top table, but we later discovered there wasn't enough space. Luckily, Lucy had no problem redesigning it to be hung from the chandeliers instead."

I love these light-up letters featured in Heidi and Marc's real wedding.

Bride Heidi said: "As the big day got closer, I began to worry that we didn't have enough decorations and impulsively hired light-up letters from Written in Lights. In hindsight, I'm so glad we did, as they created a gorgeous backdrop for our photographs."
