Jonny and his groomsmen had a whisky and watches photo before the ceremony, and as a complete surprise to the groom his bride gifted him a love letter and a watch that he'd been admiring for some time, the Tudor Black Bay watch, which she purchased at Wakefields in Horsham. "He wore his medals too, which looked incredibly smart and Prince Charming like," says Jess.

Tinwood Estate has announced plans to build five more luxury lodges bringing its total offering to eight. The new lodges will have the same design and layout as the existing ones and will be positioned among the vines for a fully immersed vineyard experience. The existing three lodges at Tinwood Estate have already proven popular and are usually fully booked across the peak summer months. Perfect for couples looking for a romantic retreat in the Sussex countryside, the lodges overlook Tinwood's vines. Spotting deer and other wildlife is a common occurrence, and what could beat sipping on a glass of sparkling Sussex wine while you sit on your private deck?

Florrie de Havilland from de Havilland Memories (www.dehavillandmemories.com) says: As someone who has recently planned their own big day, I have to say that the most important first step to attaining your dream wedding is finding a venue and getting a date locked in. As soon as you have a date, you can relax a little and find the suppliers you can relate to and would like to work with. I recommend your next supplier to be your stationer as you can't have a wedding without inviting any guests! Then, you should think about what you'd like and what your priorities are so that you can allocate your budget accordingly. From here, you can decide if you'd like to go down the bespoke route and have a tailored experience, or to use templates for your invitations. Your wedding stationery is the first impression that your guests will have of your big day, so that's the time to make a statement. I recommend using a personal stationer and creating bespoke invitations if you want to wow your loved ones and have a beautiful memento of your wedding day. Usually, they'll work with you from your invitations, all the way through to W-day and later, your thank-you letters, meaning you can create something really special and cohesive throughout.

Flowers and weddings have gone hand in hand since the Ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians carried posies of fragrant herbs and wore floral garlands at their nuptials to ward off bad luck as well as to symbolise new beginnings, fidelity and fertility. Today, it's difficult to imagine a wedding without them. Since those early days, they've become a staple of venue styling, bringing themes and palettes together and creating an atmosphere of joy and romance.

So, if your own big-day blooms have now reached the top of your to-do list, read the latest issue as we introduce you to some of the county's finest floral designers.
