Recommendations from married couples…

EMMA SHAW: VINTAGE STYLE WEDDING IN HERTFORDSHIRE. AUGUST 2014.

What I Would Recommend:

“My husband and I wrote each other a simple letter to read, just to let each other know how we felt for each other on the morning of the wedding, before the ceremony. Luckily the photographer was on hand to catch the emotion on my face as I read it. It was a genuine moment that you could never recreate.”

What I Would Have Done Differently:

“I would have tried to stop and enjoy the day more. It went so fast. One minute I was waiting to walk down the aisle and what felt like a few hours later, our night do was over and the whole day was a blur. Take a step back so you and your partner can really enjoy the occasion.”

MILES WASHINGTON: HUMANIST WEDDING IN THE LAKE DISTRICT. JULY 2014.

What I Would Recommend:

“We didn’t have a strict seating plan during the ceremony, so guests could sit wherever they wanted. The idea was that we were united as one big family and we wanted that to be evident from the early stages of the day. It went down really well with everyone.”

What I Would Have Done Differently:

“I wish we had had some form of entertainment for the guests during the drinks reception as we were away having our photos taken.”

LISA CLIFFORD: FESTIVAL CHIC WEDDING AT A FARM IN YORKSHIRE. APRIL 2014

What I Would Recommend:

“We chose to have live musicians during the ceremony. It worked really well and brought a smile to everyone’s face when all the guests joined in with an old Elvis classic!”

What I Would Have Done Differently:

“I would probably have thought of some entertainment for the children present at the wedding. It was a long day for them and I should have maybe thought of some simple games and gifts for them to keep them entertained”
