After enjoying his time in the town so much following an international trip to Hanover, Germany via Ramsgate, King George IV, on his return, gifted the harbour Royal ascent. 2021 marks 200 years since King George IV officially declared Ramsgate harbour as 'Royal' in 1821. It is still the only royal harbour in the country to this day. In recognition of this special 200th anniversary, a grand festival will occur over three days around the beachfront and harbour area. The main event includes the Royal Navy bringing two of their fleet to the harbour, and the world-famous Tall Ship 'The Royalist' will also be anchored within the harbour during that weekend.

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."

Model Chloe Frenay from Maidstone gathered together a team of talented suppliers to create this wonderful vintage-themed bridal shoot. The venue chosen for the backdrop was the gorgeous Broome Park Hotel in Canterbury. The rather grand staircase here certainly makes for a dramatic bridal entrance. We love the soft make-up look paired with soft and elegant Hollywood waves, complete with sparkling hair accessory. Plus, the classic and timeless boat neck gown with dramatic train, finished with an ultra-modern plunging back defnitely brings the wow-factor.

Couples who have adopted a pet during the pandemic can save themselves the unnecessary heartache of losing shared pets by arranging a 'pet-nuptial' agreement in case – obviously here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we truly hope it's not the case – of future separation with their partner. For custody of furry friends, there is currently no official legally binding measures in place for what happens to pets after a breakup. Legally a pet is seen as an asset, and as with any assets in a divorce, ownership will be decided by the court - however having a prearranged agreement in place, commonly known as a prenuptial agreement, can assist the court to make a decision.

There are few things more beautiful than an ethereal woodland wedding, and this local team of suppliers set about bringing an intimate feel to their creation. Shoot coordinator Janet Wilson of 2 of Harps explains, "Micro weddings are now more in demand than ever before, so for this project we were inspired by a romantic picnic for two in the woods." As the summer drew to a close, and autumn started to breeze in, it was the perfect time to use beautiful lavender as a floral theme and basis of their colour palette. "We cut, dried and prepared each bunch just a few weeks before the day, and it played an important role in tying everything together," Janet says. The rest of the pretty palette was made up of duck egg blue, dusty rose, baby pink, cream, white, rich greens and browns - all drawing on the natural surroundings. The effect was a light and airy atmosphere.
