So I have been engaged for over a year now and wanted to start planning but have no idea where to start, my other half doesn’t want a church wedding as he isn’t catholic but I am also can’t afford a really expensive wedding either.

We compromised - I found a venue that was an old church & we’re having a register marry us! I get a church like setting this way X

Once you find one, then you can start from there Xx

Have a look around local venues and wedding fairs for ideas and gather a fair budget together

Look up all the venues that are licenced to hold the ceremony and do it all in one place. They usually do packages and are more likely to do what you want.

Don't invite every man and his dog.. just invite your close family and friends that's certain to keep costs down :)

Work out what you can afford to save each month and go from there starting with your venue and ideal guest list. From that you’ll work out how long you’ll need to save and can book plenty of time in advance

Me and my partner are in the same boat, we have gone for a registrar and then the rest of the money on the reception. Only other thing I could say is look at barns, some have that church feeling but without it being religious etc
