Finding the right piece of jewellery goes beyond the symbol of love and union for a growing number of newly engaged couples. For them, it’s important to make a statement about ethics as much as aesthetics when buying a wedding ring, so they shop with a clear conscience by choosing ethical jewellery.
Music is an integral part of a wedding celebration and can be the difference between fun and disaster.

For many women this isn’t enough as they go to greater lengths to keep looking younger.

For those with a sweet tooth, cake is a welcome part of the wedding day menu. And for some couples the ubiquitous fruitcake is beginning to turn stale now that there are plenty of other options available. There are some quirky alternatives to get the taste buds racing, whether it’s a cake or that extra bit on the side in the shape of a desserts table.
