There's a lot of thought and indeed, a lot of money, that goes into that decision. You wear it, you look fabulous, you're photographed and complimented and then it goes into a box at the back of the wardrobe or in your loft. So here's an opportunity to dig it out

Passport and Visa photos fall into the category of a 'necessary evil' for most people. They are never going to be your favourite photo of yourself, particularly since such strict biometric standards were introduced, but you need to be sure they you have it right first time.

The welfare of the environment is a concern for an increasing amount of people so it's not surprising that it's recently becoming a factor for consideration when couples are wedding planning. In fact a recent survey conducted by the wedding planning app Bridebook, indicated that 39% of couples who took part had considered sustainability as part of their wedding planning process. This sizeable proportion means that sustainable weddings are moving away from the preserve of the eco-vangelist and
