It always inspires me and fills me with pride to see UK wedding suppliers, artisans and craftsmen and women on the pages of top wedding blogs. I love the wedding industry for being eclectic and varied, stylish and forward-thinking, and focused on quality and friendly customer service. Being a part of such a unique industry fills me with pride.

I was watching an interview with bridal jewellery designer Andrew Prince recently and I think he’s the perfect example of a dedicated UK wedding specialist. A gentleman and someone who really cares, Andrew is just one of the suppliers to be found at the Burlington Arcade – a timeless and luxurious assortment of boutiques where you might find the perfect accessories for your wedding day.

Mark, your inspirational wedding planning and design has earned you an unrivalled reputation in the wedding industry. What does it take to be so successful in wedding planning?

“Experience and knowledge. Of all the things that could possibly go wrong, to ensure you avoid them. But a big part is being organised and have great people skills. All couples are different and you’ll need to get along with as well as understand them all.”

You’ve developed a fascinating friendship with top UK wedding blogger Kat from Rock n Roll Bride. Has Kat influenced your wedding planning style?
