I do love a winter wedding. Seeing how couples incorporate lights and candles, and the bare branches and evergreen foliage we celebrate through the darker months – it makes weddings a little more special with all those wonderful styling touches. And then, of course, there’s the opportunity for incredible lighting in your photos.

There’s more to this article than meets the eye. Lovely Sarah speaks from the heart about her custom made wedding rings with vintage and family heirloom gems. And she won me over the first time I read this piece – what could be more romantic than giving new life to a treasured diamond or gemstone? The loveliness of Heulwen Lewis Bespoke also lies in its creator. There are plenty of ethical diamonds businesses, and bigger brands making bespoke rings. But having spoken to this lovely lady, I’d choose her if I was looking for a wedding or engagement ring. Because a special ring should have heart and soul, and Sarah’s shines through in everything she creates. Please read this – it’s wonderful.Claire's signature

There’s a lot of pressure to have your Best Day Ever on the day you get married. And weirdly, the machine that is the wedding media would have you believe that your Best Day Ever depends on the stuff you buy to make it pretty.

Here’s the absolute proof that your wedding day will be amazing because of who you are, and what you say and do, and who you invite, and how the day FEELS, over and above how it looks.
