Liz and Aled had a beautiful wedding at Oldwalls Gower

Liz and Aled met through a mutual school friend. "We have a similar sense of humour and the same values," says Liz. "Aled took me away for my birthday in 2019 and proposed at Lake Garda in Italy. It was a complete surprise and a lovely holiday."

"Oldwalls Gower is a beautiful venue that hosted our ceremony and reception all under one roof. The property could accommodate overnight guests, and the alpacas were also a plus! We added extra touches where possible, including a 'snap it, shake it and sign it' guest book where our friends and family had access to an instant camera and could take a photo and include it as part of their message."

They have already sold several of the rings to women who were planning to propose to their partners and are confident the trend will continue to gain pace. Ingle & Rhode's mens rings include items fashioned from gold and platinum with many featuring ethically sourced diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and other precious stones. There's something for most budgets with women able to choose from a modest ring for their man from as little as £495 or go for something more blingy up to £11,950.

Expert tips for elevating your drinks offering

From cocktail stations to party favours, David Cooper from glassware company Forever Crystal shares his top tips on how to get creative with your drinks on the big day. Here are four inspiration ideas for your wedding drinks and toast with something special when you say, 'I do'! Signature cocktails: While you might want to give your guests an open bar, hiring bar staff and footing the bill can end up being an expensive gesture. One way to sidestep this added cost while still providing some free refreshment is to make your own batch of signature cocktails. Choose two mixed drinks or cocktails that you know your guests love and stock up on plenty of ingredients before the big day. For a spring or summer wedding, mixed drinks like Pimm's and lemonade or gin and elderflower tonic are great options, especially as you can provide bowls of fruit and mint leaves to use as a garnish.

I could see that guests were taking loads of photos and videos, and I was wondering were all those beautiful moments that were captured ever be seen by the bride and groom or other guests. Hence WeSnapThat was created to help remove the hassle of chasing and missing out of photos and videos, plus the app get attendees to be more engaged with your event and make it more joyful as they feel part of your special day.'
