What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
We always advise all couples to have the ceremony early so you can actually enjoy your day. So many couples plan the perfect day but don't leave any time to actually spend with their guests and take in the day due to hurrying through from ceremony to sit down to reception. My advise would always be to have the ceremony early, pick a venue which can cater for your entire day, across different rooms/spaces and just enjoy yourselves. It can be hard to not get swayed by outside opinions and interests but this is YOUR special day not their's have everything the way you want it!!!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We recently hosted a wedding where the father of the brides speech was a song he'd written throughout that day. It detailed little quirky things that had happened on the day. He then taught everyone the chorus and all 100 guests song along with him.
