Top Wedding Tips

Make sure you visit lots of venues and if you want something particular – just ask and see if they can do it!

DIY weddings are not necessarily as budget friendly as you think. Make sure you weigh up every item before you make your decision. This is especially true of venues.

Involve your partner! It is both of your Big Day’s and a life together so make sure the wedding is a reflection of both of you as a couple
