I love bride Laura's wedding dress.

She said: "I chose a Stella York gown called 6701 from Laura May Bridal. It was the first dress I tried on. I looked at eight others but kept coming back to it. It made me feel beautiful and was the exact material I wanted. I initially thought I wanted sleeves, but this style made me feel confident without them. The girls at Laura May Bridal were great at helping me choose something that perfect for me. I accessorised with a stone bracelet from Monica Vinader that was engraved with our wedding date on the back.”

I love Rhian and Craig's love story.

Rhian says: "One of my bridesmaids, Sophie, set us up,” says Rhian. “I told her I wasn't interested in dating, but little did I know she'd given one of her fiancée's friends my number. Within half an hour Craig had messaged me, and when I finally built up the courage to respond we talked non-stop. He asked if I'd like to go on a date and the rest is history.”
"Craig popped the question during a trip to Las Vegas. “We were on holiday travelling around New York and Las Vegas,” shares the bride. “He was planning to propose in New York but got too nervous and ended up carrying the ring around in his pocket for five days. When we landed in Las Vegas, he waited until we were at Bellagio Fountains to ask. It was a big surprise, and the day was incredibly romantic.”

Local photographer, Carmel Teresa McCabe reveals her top tips for booking a supplier online that you've never met.

"Photographers should never have a problem meeting in person before the big day. I believe it's important that you gel with your chosen supplier, after all, you don't want to share one of the most important days of your life with a stranger.
"Never be afraid to ask questions before committing. Ask if and how long your photographer will provisionally hold your date and if they offer a no-obligation consultation before booking.
"Most importantly read the reviews from past couples to get a better insight into the company."

Hair stylist, Alaw John reveals his top tips for creating the perfect wedding day look.

"Keep your naturally curly hair. You could wear it up with a statement hair accessory or keep it natural with the addition of a flower crown. It all depends on what makes you feel most comfortable.
"The weather is also something you need to take into consideration when choosing a style. If it rains or is very windy, then it's best to wear it up. There are so many options available, find something you like and book a trial before the big day to ensure you love it."

Real wedding couple, Lucinda and Matthew fell in love with their wedding venue.

Lucinda tells us: "We didn't want a traditional wedding reception and wanted somewhere that everyone could stay for the weekend and make a real occasion of it. When we visited Fforest Weddings, we liked how rustic it was and the outdoor space. We loved the idea of not being stuck in the same room all day, and that people could relax by the fire pits or in the pub if they wanted, all while being just a short walk from their accommodation. The venue is proud of their food, and they have every right to be. Everyone commented on our incredible barbecued lamb, it was being cooked outside on the barbecue when we all arrived, and everyone could help themselves."
