In an article earlier this year there was discussion and praise aimed towards the Government's plans to allow outdoor weddings to be made permanent. The article also highlighted the eagerly awaited Law Commission report into marriage laws, which was due to be published in July. Now it has been published and we have had some time for the dust to settle, Kate Van Rol, Barrister at 4PB has looked into these recommendations, "Are wedding laws at present 'confusing, outdated and restrictive' as the Commission suggest, or would the implementation of their suggestions trivialise weddings and commercialise the ceremony?". Kate continues...

If you love the idea of walking up a tree-lined aisle under dappled sunshine to say 'I do', with birds singing in the trees overhead, this could be your dream come true. The new woodland ceremony glade at Alpheton Hall Barns in Suffolk is an idyllic spot for romantic al-fresco weddings and you don't need to worry if the weather's bad as there's always the beautiful Ceremony Barn as backup.

Back in late summer 2019 we reported on a rising new star on the local wedding scene, Jack Brock the miniature Shetland pony. Since then his fame has spread far and wide, so he now has a new website and email address all of his own.
In his role as a four-legged confetti carrier, he's a real show-stealer kitted out in his leather bridle, decorated harness and wicker baskets filled with fragrant rose petals. The eco-friendly confetti is picked from owner Ali Stearn's rose garden on the family farm in Wymondham, South Norfolk.

When Mark Lee from Mark Lee Photography set up this shoot at Cheshire's Park Manor, he wanted to seek out like minded suppliers to collaborate on creating stunning inclusive images; and what better showcase this gorgeous shoot than Pride Month! Mark says, "For months I've been coming across posts on Facebook on issues from the LGBTQ+ community over double standards within the wedding industry. Some finding that they were being charged more or that some suppliers just wouldn't work with a same sex couple. Then a supplier wanted to know how to create a logo for same sex supplier so not to offend. And another supplier unsure how to word his contract... this got me thinking. Why is this so difficult? Why does there need to be an issue regardless of who you are and who you want to marry? The law has changed so why are people still living in the dark ages? It's time to accept everyone."
