Inspired by dry-January, event planner Liz Taylor has top tips for an alcohol-free wedding

January is traditionally a time for good intentions and new, healthier beginnings. Be that swapping out meat for plant-based Veganuary, dusting off the running shoes, or cutting out alcohol for Dry January. With more than 20 per cent of the UK population now describing themselves as teetotal, the idea of a dry wedding may be more popular than you think. And what could be better than waking up hangover free on your first day as a married couple? For others, living and marrying without alcohol has a religious or cultural meaning.

Clare Hartland-Brown from Betty Bee Bakes unveils ideas for 2021 cakes

Clare Hartland-Brown is the owner of Betty Bee Bakes, a bespoke wedding and celebration cake company based in Old Windsor, Berkshire. We ask her to reveal her new-season designs for micro weddings taking place this spring.

A smaller cake doesn't mean less impact. Choose your decorations wisely and it will still look as stunning as a larger design.
