"We met through a mutual friend who thought: 'I know, two girls, both gay – it must work!'” Chloe tells us. It's a theory that so infrequently pans out, but on this occasion, it did! Chloe fell in love with Shannon's craziness and sense of fun, as well as the laughter they shared from the moment they met. “I used to say Shannon had the loudest laugh in Burgess Hill, it's such a cackle,” she jokes.

One evening in 2019, Chloe returned home from work to discover Shannon nowhere to be found. Instead there was a huge bouquet of flowers with a note that read: “Dress code: smart. Your carriage awaits at 7pm. Don't be late!” Chloe dutifully got ready and her chauffeur was there on the dot. She was driven around Brighton as she read a poem Shannon had written and left in the car for her to find. Her suspicions that they were heading for the bandstand, a meaningful place for the couple, were correct and Shannon was there to meet her as she pulled up. The pair walked up the candlelit path to the bandstand where they stood in front of an ivy and rose heart and Shannon popped the question. Chloe, of course, said “Yes!”

The stunning venue itself was the inspiration behind this local shoot. Photographer Andy Kerr says, “It's such a unique venue with its Victorian Gothic architecture and amazing stained-glass windows that flood the space with bright, vibrant colours, which I was keen to reflect in the images.” With dresses selected to complement the grandeur of the Chapel and two contrasting looks for the bouquets the style exudes class and romance.

Taking a few minutes after the ceremony to enjoy a private drive, while taking everything in and enjoying those precious first moments together alone as newlyweds, is something that often stands out as a highlight for couples on their wedding day.

Real wedding couple Chloe and Ray took a little trip on a golf buggy around the beautiful grounds at www.blackstockestate.co.uk. Why not pick up your photographer at some point, as it's a great opportunity to scope out some idyllic spots for your couple photo shoot.

In the Apr/May22 issue's Hot Topic feature Mariella Fleming of https://southendbarns.co.uk shares her top tips for what's hot in the world of venue styling this year. She says, "For several years we've seen a penchant for bringing the outside in. However, in a historically Edwardian move, couples are turning the tables and taking home comforts into the great outdoors for both their ceremony and reception – think outdoor chandeliers, cosy sofas, twinkling fairylights and luxurious fabrics. Our Secret Garden plays into this perfectly with plenty of scope to embellish the pergola and benches with throws and lighting."

I love this oh-so modern, elegant take on the rustic vibe with pamapas grass and hanging macrame baskets.

The Amyverse says, "If you're writing your own vows, this one is for you. A beautiful bespoke vow book containing the most important words you'll ever say." Quite true, and such beautiful words, deserve a beautiful home. I love these hand calliagraphed vow booklets by www.theamyverse.com. Attractive to hold during the ceremony, they also make for the most special of keepsakes.
