To make your beauty dreams a reality this autumn, butter LONDON have announced the launch of their brand-new Glazen Blush Gelée (available in four shades), £21, available from Look Fantastic, Beauty Expert and OCADO.

These wedding-themed candles really make great scents – apologies for the pun but they are a great idea! A gift which anyone can appreciate at home and which have a wedding-day twist, the candles are a great memento of your special day.
At £70 per pair, the matching candles are a substantial size – in 30cl matt black candle glass. In diamante lettering, one says "I do", and the other "me too".
You can then choose his and hers fragrances – choose from scents such as Tuscan Herb or Zest for him, and Boudoir and Prosecco & Berry for her.
We used them at home and were surprised at home slow-burning they are – probably due to the unusual wick which is a thin strip of wood. So the candles won’t burn out within a couple of weeks.

A winter wedding theme has a particular beauty – and it’s one the Cutture design team loves as there are so many creative options.
Winter makes a fantastic back-drop to a ‘story’ wedding invitation, one that features you and aspects of your life, possibly your proposal or a place that’s special to you. A laser cut wintery scene, or the use of gorgeous crisp, frosty whites as a base colour, make a big impact.
Hawkstone Hall, a magnificent Grade I listed 18th Century mansion, will open in summer 2018. Anticipation is building ahead of its launch, as the venue is set to become one of the most sought after wedding venues in the UK.
The country estate has been purchased by The Distinctly Hospitable Group, making them the fourth owner in the property’s 550 year history. A sympathetic refurbishment is currently being planned to breathe new life into the spectacular Georgian property.
September is often considered a bit of a transition month for style, summer fashion seems a little outdated but it’s not quite time to break out the Autumnal colours yet. So with that in mind, we would recommend that a September groom shifts his focus from colour to pattern.
Slaters’ statement collection has bold prints at its core, and is the perfect option for those transitional months where you just can’t pick a colour of the season.
The main print we’d recommend for September is a check, Slaters’ collection of checked suits are available in various colours, and range from being super bold, to a little more subtle, so whatever your style, you can make a patterned suit work for you.

1. Make sure you get a good night’s sleep! No matter how good your makeup artist is, they won’t be able to get rid of bags under your eyes.
2. If you plan on having a spray tan for your wedding day, trial that a day or two before your trial too. The tone of your skin will impact the colours your artist will use on your eyes, lips and cheeks.
3. Wear white! Just as your skin tone effects the way colour sits with your hair and eyes, as does the colour you are wearing. You will get a much more accurate idea of what your makeup will look like on the actual day if you wear the same colour as your dress to the trial.
