Wrap up warm

Wrap up warm

Q. I'm worried about being cold on my wedding day for the outside photos, how can I get around this?

A. Angela Robson says: Angela says: It's surprising how much excitement and nerves can stave off the chill. However, it's always good to be prepared! Task a bridesmaid or friend to be on hand with either a shrug or jacket that you can wear as you walk around your venue to capture the best images. It's easy to think that the photographer may do this for you but remember with all their equipment to carry around and the need to assess where the best light is. There's been an increased trend for capes, which we particularly adore for winter weddings but if this feels too much of a statement then consider a small wrap. Our Richard Design fur wrap with the satin ribbon has been especially popular with winter brides but for some extra sparkle a beautiful diamanté clasp is also available.

Mum's the word

Mum's the word

Q. It's going to be cold on our big day and my mum's stressing about her outfit. What can she wear that'll keep her warm without sacrificing style?

A. Julie Rose says: Mothers-of-the-bride and groom need to look and feel a million dollars on the big day. Outfits with a matching coat or jacket are perfect for the colder weather. The longer-length jacket is increasingly popular and is stunning as a two-piece when the coat's removed for a day to night outfit.

If she needs extra warmth I'd recommend adding a faux fur wrap. This would sit comfortably on the shoulders keeping her warm while still showcasing her dress.
