I’ve started my journey to a healthier weight...... The fact is, I’ve started this journey every Monday morning and by 11.30am I’ve failed miserably as the office biscuit box is passed around and I’ve helped myself to a few cookie’s to dip into my coffee and two sugars! I’m tired of waking every day, thinking, ‘I’ll start my diet today!’ Sound familiar? I’m one of the many thousands of women whom struggle every day to eat healthily. Work and family commitments, coupled with a desire to comfort-eat when I’m feeling particularly stressed or the day just doesn’t go my way, has led to me carrying a few more pounds than I’d care to admit. I’ve tried every diet going……. You name it and I’ve done it and yes, I’ve lost weight many times. However, I’ve put it all back on again, falling back into my comfort-zone of picking from the fridge, binging on sweet treats late at night and indulging in too much red wine at the weekend. My Husband celebrated his 40th birthday recently and to celebrate we booked a special cruise to the Caribbean. It’s a holiday of a lifetime, but instead of looking forward to the holiday, I was filled with dread at the thought of squeezing into a swimsuit and parading around in my summer dresses. At least in winter I can cover up (sound familiar again)? Then, out

12 www.nationalweddingsmagazine.co.uk

of the blue I received an email from Lighterlife Fast regarding their 5:2 Weight Loss plan. I’d tried fasting before, but struggled to stick to the 500 calories a day as it left me feeling dizzy and weak. However this was different. Its aim is to make 5:2 intermittent fasting easy and nutritious with no cooking, food shopping and most importantly, no calorie counting. With the LighterLife Fastpacks™ you eat between 500-600 calories a day and every food pack is 100% nutritionally balanced. They call it a ‘No Fuss Approach to 5:2!' I had just four weeks to go until I headed off to the sun so I decided to see if LighterLife Fastpacks™ could help me lose the extra weight before my holiday and then maintain it upon my return. Intermittent fasting generally involves cutting calorie intake to around a quarter of what you would usually eat, for just two days a week. On the remaining days, you eat as you would normally. It’s perfect for either shifting a few excess pounds or for simply keeping your weight in check. By eating four Lighterlife Fastpacks™ on each fasting day, I consumed 600 calories but still received almost 100% of my recommended daily allowances (RDAs) of key minerals and vitamins, together with plenty of protein and fibre. It really does work. On average, I lost 2lb per week following the Lighterlife Fast 5:2. Yes you need to be

focused and have will-power on the days you fast but I never felt hungry and had loads of energy. I found that it really made me appreciate basic food such as vegetables and a simple, low-fat sandwich. And because you can see the results every week, it really spurs you on. Fastpacks™ are easy to make up and portable. The fool-proof packs take the hassle out of 5:2 which makes intermittent fasting a sustainable lifestyle choice. I’m certainly going to keep using the packs each week. Available exclusively at Superdrug stores across the UK and Ireland, the new range start at £7.99 for a box of four Fastpacks™ - which is enough for one day of fasting. The Fastpack™ options include: • Savoury meals such as spaghetti Bolognese and pasta carbonara. • Porridge. • Shakes in Vanilla, Strawberry, banana and chocolate flavours. • Meal bars in nut fudge, crispy peanut, cranberry & raspberry and toffee flavours.

LighterLife Fast are available exclusively at Superdrug.

Furrer-Jacot – exclusive and flamboyant designs FURRER-JACOT, the exclusive wedding ring manufacturer from Schaffhausen, Switzerland has launched an exclusive range of wedding rings. One ring – one statement, plus a confession: A confession about a unique love. People would not be doing justice to these rings if they referred to them as items of jewellery. On the contrary, they are little exclusive sculptures that have been lavishly crafted by hand. They formally take up a challenge, which for many couples seems indispensable: to be connected and to move together, living lives with common goals but individual paths. The models from the 2014 collection are strong, individual pieces. They are not just for people who love design, but also for couple whose requirements for extravagance and exclusiveness are high. The designs are a cross-over from bridal jewellery to fashion and certainly are therefore also suitable as single design pieces of high-end jewellery.

The perfect base for your Hen Night, Mini Moon or Shopping Trip

Editor's

CHOICE

The Presidential Apartments are a fantastic place to stay and take in all of London. Instead of choosing between the convenience of renting your own crash-pad in London and the service levels of a hotel, they provide the perfect combination: the practical amenities of a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art apartment suite with the comfort of a 24 hour concierge. Being located in Zone One with close links to the Underground the perfect location to take advantage of the city’s fantastic bridal boutiques, see a West End show with your hens, or even enjoy an urban mini-moon. Presidential Apartments combine hotel luxury with the flexibility and convenience of a personal London pied-à-terre. They are a great alternative to a standard hotel for visitors to London. Once the best-kept-secret of A-list celebrities seeking total privacy and the international business class, serviced suites are gaining popularity with overseas tourists, corporate travellers, families, and both short and long term visitors. Serviced suites always beat the traditional hotel room on price, convenience and, most importantly, size.

WEDDING Z

egnia and Matthew got married in their home town of Nayland at St. James’ church in Suffolk with the wedding reception at Zegnia’s parents back garden at Bear House where she grew up.

Bridesmaids Dresses: Coast they chose their own and matched the colour scheme with their personal style. Headbands: from ASOS with flower corsages to complete the look.

Shoes: Carvela spotted in the shop window- a must have decision. Suits: Made to measure at A suit that fits. The ties came from Peter Werth. Shoes from Dune and handkerchiefs were from Charles Tyrwhitt.

"It was wonderful seeing them walk through the village to the church and waved off by all the neighbours!"

Headpiece: Timeless Couture. It was handmade with a vintage brooch "Something old".

White chocolate wedding cake: Vanilla Patisserie. Dress: Ian Stuart from the Killer Queen Collection called Basilica, in taupe with metallic lace. Table plan: Zegnia and her sisters created this just the day before, from old frames, twine and textured paper!

Jars for the table flowers and pillar candles for the church.

Zegnia’s advice to brides would be to make the most of the planning. "When I went dress shopping we always made a day of it champagne lunches and celebrating with my mum and bridesmaids. Those were some of the best bits of the whole process. We also made sure that we celebrated before and after the wedding. So on the Friday night the guys had a curry and the girls had a movie night, on the Saturday we had a relaxed BBQ, and on the Bank Holiday Monday a lunch where I wore my dress again. That way it gave us more time to spend with family and friends."

Vintage photographs of their parents and grand parents on their wedding day, decorated the guest book wall inside the Tipi.

Tipi: Hired from Beautiful World Tents, this was the first decision the couple made and the wedding grew around this vision.

Lucy Wallace Photography

"Our photographer was Lucy Wallace. She was recommended by another photographer. We met her in London and knew immediately she was the right person. We didn't want our guests to have to stand around for ages while we had loads of posed formal photographs. Instead we wanted to be able to spend as much time with our guests and have our wedding photographer capture all the memories of the day. Lucy's reportage style was perfect, she was discreet and made us feel so comfortable." www.lucywallacephotography.com

74 www.nationalweddingsmagazine.co.uk

Around the Tipi the sisters had adorned the walkways with night lights in jars and decorated inside with fairy lights, candles and flowers. A birch centrepiece was placed on each table and birch signs outside - Zegnias' surname being Birch!

Ask the

EXPERTS Expert: Jane Mather, Make-up Artist From: Image Trees Ltd. www.imagetrees.co.uk

Q

On my wedding day I am sure to cry and ruin my eye make-up. How can I ensure my eye make-up stays in place for the whole day?

Question answered by Jane Mather of Image Trees.

A

During the weeks leading up to your wedding follow a beauty routine suitable for your skin type; cleanse, tone and moisturise every day (and night), drink plenty of water and exfoliate once or twice a week. All these things will help guarantee that your skin (and the area underneath your eye) is in the best possible condition for your wedding day. Before applying any eye make-up ensure your eye area is completely clean, that under your eye is correctly moisturised and that there is no greasiness to the eye area. As with the face it is really important to use a make-up primer on your eye lids; look for one specifically designed for that area. A primer on the eye lids will add a wonderful smooth base on which to apply your eye shadow but will also help to keep your eye make-up in place through out your wedding day. Wearing an eye liner enhances the eye area and if applied correctly can really make your eyes stand out, but you need to be careful to choose an eye liner that will not run or smudge. Gel eye liners are perfect for such an occasion. After curling your eye lashes opt for waterproof mascara (in your chosen colour) and, budget permitting, purchase one specifically for your wedding day, so that the quality of the mascara is at its best and it hasn’t dried out at all. Last but not least, should you cry on your wedding day don’t rub your eyes! Just take a tissue and gentle dab away the tears. 76 www.nationalweddingsmagazine.co.uk

Expert: Ella Vickery From: Phyllis Court, 01491 570 513 www.phylliscourt.co.uk/weddings/ weddings

Q

At Phyllis Court one of the questions we are always asked is “Can we include a boat trip in our Wedding Day?”

Question answered by Ella Vickery at Phyllis Court.

A

"Yes, of course”. Whether you would like to arrive from the Church or include a half hour trip in your day, just you and your new partner with a glass of champagne, or for the rest of your guests to join you for a river trip. We are perfectly situated right on the river in the centre of Henley on Thames, we have our own moorings, so no matter how large or small the boat, we can always oblige. Our unique Riverside Pavilion has recently been refurbished and is a show piece in itself, guests often think it is actually floating on the river, so weddings are a real must in this beautiful two tiered glass building. Our other venue is completely different – a classic Ballroom with beautiful columns and French windows that lead out on to its own private terrace, with lawns leading down to the river. Both venues are perfect for a riverside wedding.

Expert: Anna & Jo From: Shades of White www.shades-of-white.co.uk

Q

I am a mature bride and planning my first wedding, I still want to look the part but worry about the type of dress I should go for can you help?

Question answered by Jo & Anna at Shades of White.

A

The first thing to remember when buying your wedding dress is that every bride is different. There are no set rules about what you should or shouldn’t wear. We always encourage brides, whatever their age, to try on a variety of different shapes and they are often surprised by what wows them. Getting the colour tone right can also transform a bride from looking good to looking amazing. Don’t be afraid to try champagne, gold and even Blush tones. We have lots of brides who ideally would like their arms covered and set out looking for a dress with sleeves. This can limit their search so we suggest keeping an open mind and have a play around with jackets. The choice is so vast you can choose anything from a delicate angel sleeve to a vintage lace bolero to a glamorous marabou stole. The most important thing is that you feel sensational in your dress.
