St Michael's Manor is the perfect romantic setting for any couple's special day. Set in five acres of beautiful private English country gardens with a stunning lake, this country house hotel in St Albans is only 20 minutes from London by train. The location is perfect as the venue is close to the city centre of St Albans, which was formerly the ancient city of Verulamium, and near the famous Abbey Cathedral.

I love this cake from Stef and Christopher's rustic Italian-inspired day. The couple had a huge one-tier Mille-Foglio cake that got put together at the wedding –very difficult as it's such a delicate cake.

I love what Julia West from Julia and You has to say about taking natural photos. She says: "My best advice is take a walk with your new wife and chat, this allows for a beautiful natural photo, no-one telling you to smile because naturally you will do so without prompting on your wedding day. Whilst I always take shots after the ceremony of you both, my favourite time is golden hour, which is an hour before the sun sets and the light is low and often after dinner so you are both so relaxed."

I love Daniella and Oliver's top tip, they said: “Always make decisions together and spend your money on what you feel is most beneficial in the long run, for us this was the photographer and videographer to capture the whole day. It's difficult to see everything going on around us and this captured any moments missed.”

“The shoot was inspired by the beautiful sage green ribbons from Silk and Purl" says shoot coordinator Kirsty Mcgilley at The Flower Mill. She adds: "I wanted to capture elegance with really simple details, so I used plenty of lush green ferns and trailing wild foliage to give the florals lots of texture and movement."

Weddings are such a beautiful thing and being surrounded by loved ones is just amazing. After being on your feet for hours – especially in heels – our feet can really ache. That's why I love Natasha and Jon's wedding top tip, they said: "For your reception buy some baskets and fill them with fluffy bathroom slippers or flip-flops. By the end of the night your female guests will thank you endlessly!"
