What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have a plan. Add approx timescales so that you know how much there is to do and who is doing what.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Something that speaks volumes about the couples as individuals, which have then been brought together for their day. One wedding I went to the groom was into Formula One (he used to be a Race Driver when he was younger) and each table was named after a Race Car – and you know that the bride has compromised letting him do this! It’s the little personal touches.
