What’s that we hear? The distant sound of wedding bells and invites hitting the doormat? Yes, it’s wedding season, and with it comes a whole world of planning and organising to be done – whether you’re a guest or the one tying the knot.

In the very first Sloane Street Wedding Guide, we’ve spoken to Benjamin Wheeler, wedding photographer to HRH Princess Beatrice and many a fashion insider. Chelsea’s resident skincare expert Sarah Chapman has explained what to do in the months before the big day to ensure you look and feel great, Mark Niemierko has shared his most valuable planning tips (they are gold), and Michael Hennegan offers up helpful tips for guests. Discover all these and more below.
