Award-winning international make-up artist Katy Pfeiffer talks spring beauty

Katy Pheiffer is a multi-award-winning international make-up artist based in Wiltshire, covering weddings throughout Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Wiltshire and nationwide. We catch up with her for inspiration about big-day beauty for spring weddings. She tells us, "Spring is all about new beginnings when the weather is warming up and the days are getting longer, meaning that your big-day make-up needs to be suitable for the daytime and hopefully some sunny weather!I always recommend a dewy, light coverage for a spring wedding to achieve glowing, healthy-looking skin. I use Light Wonder foundation by Charlotte Tilbury mixed with the Super Radiant Booster by NARS to add luminosity. I set the skin with Sublime Perfection Blurring Under-Eye Powder by Pat McGrath which adds to the glow without mattifying it. For gorgeous glowing cheeks, I use Cheek to Chic Love Glow blusher by Charlotte Tilbury and the Glow Face Palette by Dior Backstage to highlight the cheekbones, inner corner of the eyes and the cupid's bow."... read more

Lorna Sansom from Sweet Marguerite Cakes in Aylesbury unveils new bakes

Lorna Sansom is the cake designer, baker and sugar florist at Sweet Marguerite Cakes based in Aylesbury covering Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and beyond. We talk to her about her latest designs and predictions for summer weddings now that restrictions are lifting. Lorna tells us, "I have always preferred two-tier cakes like these pictured, and it's the smaller cakes that I love to make. It's simple to reduce the tiers down a size and a two-tier design comprised of a 15cm (6-inch) and a 10cm (4-inch) layer would feed 15 guests perfectly. If you have set your heart on a three-tier cake then I would suggest adding a dummy bottom tier which is just for show. I prefer to use sugar flowers rather than fresh ones on a wedding cake because they can be made in the ideal shade and size, and will keep long past the wedding day. If you decide to have a party later on when restrictions have lifted, you can reuse the flowers.... read more
