What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
At a recent winter wedding the couple went for an enchanted winter wonderland theme and decorated the venue in branches and trees. The wedding began at 2pm and from 9am on the day we lit scented candles around the venue to create a really nice atmosphere for the guests. The couple had a little surprise for guests too – they had an owl fly the rings up the aisle!
