Lovely new local wedding suppliers for you to discover!

Published by Claire Gould on

So autumn has well and truly landed, and I’m loving jumpers and autumn walks already. Don’t you just love playing in the leaves and trying to catch one? Even if you’re on your own… it’s lucky to catch a leaf but so much harder than it looks! It’s time for evenings by the fire and cosy candlelit cuddles, and for making wedding plans together – because in 10 weeks it’ll be 2018! Eeek!!
