During the pandemic, temporary measures were introduced to the wedding scene to allow more flexibility and couples to proceed with their wedding even under lockdown laws.

Weddings were permitted to be conducted outdoors at certain licensed venues across England and Wales, which meant couples could still marry safely during the lockdowns.

In an exciting move towards helping couples have the wedding of their dreams, outdoor weddings at licensed venues will be legalised permanently as of 6th April 2022, under The Marriages and Civil Partnerships (Approved Premises) (Amendment) Regulations 2022.

Silhouette Sarah will be exhibiting at Signature Wedding Show at Ascot Racecourse

Silhouette artists are a rare art form that will wow your guests. Silhouette Sarah tells us more: "Silhouette cutting makes a great favour at weddings and keeps the guests entertained during the wedding photographs. It's a fun icebreaker as I walk around guests and entertain your friends and family whilst cutting paper portraits freehand using nothing but scissors. Think of vintage cameos, Jane Austin's trademark silhouette, or Mrs Whistledown's silhouette in Bridgerton. Each silhouette is cut freehand with no drawing or other trickery. Each silhouette is a flattering likeness of the person, whatever the age, so everyone will be wanting one. I can cut approximately 70 silhouettes in three hours. Double chins don't exist and you will never find a wrinkle or white hair on a silhouette profile.
