What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Dont let it over take your life. Set out times to discuss wedding planning then try to avoid it all other times. It can consume you and whilst its the most important day and moment of your life, keep living in the moment.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I always think its hard to pay homage to someone who has passed away and one of the most amazing tributes wa one I did at my own wedding. I dedicated a whole wall at where ALL the guests were invited ( in their invite) to share their wedding photograph or a wedding photograph of the ones they love. I managed to get a great picture of my mum and dad ( who passed away a few years before hand) it was a joyful way to sneak him in with out all the sorrow. We also had grandparents and more. Looking at what they wore and smiling became the memory, Not that they were no longer alive.
