Are you a sufferer of oily hair? Worried how to manage it for you big day? Tina Elliott of Newcastle's Tina Elliott Hair Styling can help:

"For greasy hair it's very tempting to wash your hair every day, but this only adds to the problem. Try to wean yourself off the habit by using a quality dry shampoo in between – this is a brilliant way of getting your hair used to being washed less frequently and adds some body in between as well. You can also perhaps wear your hair up on day two until your hair gets used to not having to produce the extra sebum you're washing away every day."

Still searching for the perfect wedding venue? Step forward Middlesbrough's Acklam Hall, voted the number one romantic space to get married in the English Wedding Awards.

The only Grade I listed building in the area, the Hall was built in 1683 and underwent a multi-million-pound makeover in 2016. Its most recently updated space, the Queen's Room, was completed in February, and has now been transformed into an elegant bridal suite, with both four-poster bed and freestanding bath.

Worried what order to arrive at your cermony? Paul Campbell from Campbell Wedding Cars has all the answers…

"If a couple wanted to stick with tradition, then the order for the wedding party to arrive to the ceremony would be the groom and groomsmen first, approximately 30 minutes before the ceremony. While the best man is keeping the groom calm, the groomsmen and ushers are on hand to greet guests and get them seated. Second to arrive, around five to 10 minutes before the service, are the bridesmaids and flowergirls, along with the mother of the bride. At this point all of the guests and groomsmen should be inside. Last to arrive would then be the bride and her father."

When searching for a wedding caterer it's important to rememnber that feeding your guests doesn't have to mean a sit-down affair. “Mini food bowls allow your party to socialise and gives a more relaxed feel to the day,” says The Duck House Pantry's Jack Lapping. “Then there's canapé choices, with ours including venison Bolognese croquette with spiced tomato chutney, Lake District lamb belly fritter with sauce paloise, and tempura battered halloumi with nori tartare sauce and minted peas.”
