Breaking Traditions

I love the idea of breaking traditions. Just remember, it is your day and your way! You can take on board as many or as few traditions as you want. At the end of the day, we live in modern times and we have seen it all. Some couples may choose to keep each and every one of the original wedding traditions from first dance, bridal party, bouquet and garter toss and so on.

How to Write Your Own Wedding Run Sheet

Whilst I feel leaving it to the experts, like your wedding planner or coordinator is best, as they are experienced in timing and details, the reality is that some couples don’t have this option.

How To Include Family In Your Wedding

Wedding days are meant to be shared with your family and friends and including them in the lead up and on the day of the wedding can be part of that journey and make it all the more fun, albeit sometimes stressful (depending on your family of course). Making your family members a part of your wedding, whether that be your mum or mother-in-law, dad, sisters, or grandparents is such a lovely gesture.

Real Wedding; Manon and George @ Worrowing Estate

How did you two meet? George and I met when we were both very young (me at 18, he at 20) at university. This was close to 10 years ago now.
