Look what catches the eye of the editor with a special emphasis in local businesses, shops and suppliers in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
I'm obsessed with this beautiful shoot here at Your Herts and Beds Wedding magazine, which is packed full of inspiration. Shoot coordinator and make-up artist Sabina Ventriglia says, “I wanted to create an editorial-style bridal shoot on location, using all local suppliers and services so that we could all benefit from the feedback and interest from potential brides in the area. I've worked with both the photographer and hairstylist many times before and knew they'd help me create my vision. I pulled a mood board together and it was such a real team effort!"

When it comes to creating perfect bespoke wedding invitations, Kelly Simmons from Pink Peony Weddings shares her expert advice. She says: "When creating a bespoke design, we always advise our couples to think carefully about their personalities and style of wedding, such as glamorous and sophisticated or fun and quirky. Invitations are the first thing a guest receives and gives a suggestion of what the wedding will be like, so we believe it's important it reflects the couple. Knowing what you don't like is as important as knowing what you do."

Chris and Shelley's rustic wedding was so beautiful and I love the couples top tip for when it comes to enjoying the day. They said: "Take some time out of the madness to spend some time together as a newly married couple! We had some evening shots with our photographer, Rafe, and it was so nice to just spend 15 minutes out of the madness, walking around under the starlit sky, just chatting and catching up on the day whilst Rafe took some photos from a distance!"

Claire and Rob's Disney-themed day was a real hit with guests. I love the couples top tip when it comes to planning, they said: "Our top tip from the day would be to ensure you plan for all the little extras as that's what makes up the cost such as invitations and remember that you're not able to cater for everyone with food choices. This is your special day and focus on what you want, don't try to please everybody else."
