What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

We will have loads to share with you along the way, but one I regularly give to our couples, is to start table plans as soon as possible, that way it doesn't become a stressful task later on and you can plan your tables and how many centre pieces you will need early on.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We once had a couples whos table themes were their favourite books, they had the book on each table and made confetti made from the pages from those books, such great attention to detail.
