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

Plan well in advance, and write it all down. Give the instructions to your venue so that they know exactly what you want. That way any problems can be addressed in advance. The more information your venue has the better job they are able to do Then you can relax on your special day and enjoy yourselves safe in the knowledge that there are people who are working to make your dreams come true.

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

A young couple had a very small budget for their wedding , and wanted an autumnal nature theme. They used leaves that they had gathered themselves during a walk in their favourite park to make decorations and place settings. It was a simple thing but very effective, and they have the memory of that walk to treasure.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Our favourite midnight treat is....going home at the end of the night knowing that our guests have had a great night and we've done a good job. It's sad but true. It's a feeling better than any food or drink knowing that you've made a room full of people happy.
