I'm torn - we don't have alot of money and I'm not one for big massive weddings. We've sort decided on a small ceremony at Greenwich registry office with a couple of family and friends, then back to our local pub for a big knees up. No photogropher etc... But that feels a tad depressing to me! Now I'm debating whether to get a package wedding in Gibraltar and have a big party afterwards, but this means that my sister and best friend won't be there as they have small children :( what to do?

Do whatever you want to do. If you can't stand the thought of your sister and best friend not being there on your big day this may not be the exact right answer for you, maybe talk to them and see if they would be at all willing to go to Gibraltar - maybe leave the kids at home for a few days? Whatever you decide to do you need to feel its right for you.

Stick with where people can get to they are more important! Add a cheap photographer you will regret not having one! Maybe have afternoon tra in the interim before going to pub to flesh it out abit!

Set up a hashtag on facebook or twitter, get your friends to take photos and send them. You'll be surprised what a filter can do! Also check if any of friends have any good cameras. Regarding your wedding, please yourself not your guests , it's your special day x
