For those of you just setting off on your quest for your dream dress, the sheer choice can be overwhelming – that’s why we’ve picked out the top-trending looks on the bridal catwalks in ‘The Fash Pack’, to help you get started. Shot in the enchanting climes of Mamhead House, ‘White Hot’ showcases a selection of stunning, new-season silhouettes, while ‘Lovers and Dreamers’ offers some wonderfully whimsical inspiration for brides seeking free-spirited aisle style.

And then there are the real weddings. It has been a pleasure to recount such beautiful celebrations: from sun-drenched ceremonies and flower-filled vows to waterside jaunts and celebrations deep in the country – each wedding is filled with joy, love and oodles of personality. Wishing you a wedding filled with just as much love and laughter!
