I love to see the emotion captured at weddings and the talented photographers of our region are experience in making sure these moment are immortalised forever. From smiles, laughs and tears of joy, the images on page 54 of our May/Jun issue were incredibly moving. My favourite is this one snapped by www.kevinbrownphotography.co.uk of a groom waiting for his bride at the altar.
I love real bride Elle Gregson's pared-back wedding hair style from issue 44. This issue her hair stylist Charlotte Medford of www.charlottemedfordbridal.com tells us how she created it: "Elle wanted her bridal hair to have a real Vogue Italia feel to it. Sleekness and shine were key, so with this in mind she had her hairline threaded for that really sharp finish." To find out more about the process check out the Beauty Q&A feature on page 88 of the current issue.

Real wedding couple Charlotte and David had a Parisian theme as the city of love is where the groom proposed. The bride says: "We chose a palette of blush pink and white. The seating plan had an Eiffel Tower motif and the tables were named after famous places around the city."
