Here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we do love a good book to get our teeth into - not literally of course, cake's great for that - and the description for this new novel Before I Do from Sophie Cousens already has us hooked! What would you do if the one that got away turned up the night before your wedding? Audrey is marrying Josh; steady, dependable Josh, the love of her life. They share a flat and a bank account, and it's the only relationship that Audrey's ever had that feels like something she can put her trust in. But romance should be full of fireworks, and as the big day approaches, Audrey's found herself wondering if Josh really is 'the one'. So, when Josh's sister Miranda arrives at their rehearsal dinner with Fred - Audrey's 'What If?' guy, the man she met six years ago and had one amazing day with but never saw again - Audrey can't help but see it as a sign.

Surface designer Lisa Ibbetson runs two-hour mindful marbling workshops from her home studio in central Brighton, where she teaches students the ancient meditative, creative art of suminagashi – Japanese ink marbling. Popular among hen parties visiting the Sussex seaside, the workshops take place in a peaceful, supportive environment where you and your best gals can let go of inhibitions and flow with your own creativity using this artistic technique. Originally intended as a process for connecting human creativity to the flowing nature of water, suminagashi has its roots in Shintoism and uses various methods to apply inks to the water's surface. The inks then evolve in soft, elegant forms before a mono-print can be made at a chosen point by transferring the pattern onto paper or card.

Be sure to keep neutral undertones to your floral palettes, such as white, to ensure they complement the main colour. Anemones are one of the most popular flowers requested this season, with ranunculas, lisianthus and garden roses close behind, all of which can be sourced from local flower farms.

The Law Commission of England and Wales has today outlined recommendations to reform weddings law that gives couples more choice over where and how their wedding takes place. This will be music to the ears of many couples who are currently restricted by many of the outdated regulations.
