Congratulations to all the newly engaged couples! We hope you had a fab Christmas and New Year and we hope our to do list and wedding blogs help you towards that big day. After all the congratulations and celebrations of your engagement, its time to start with the biggest ‘to do’list you will probably write, but for all good reasons. Its rather daunting at first thinking of where do you start when planning a wedding, so I hope our guide will give you some direction and advice what to do next. We will be regularly writing a detailed blog on each section so we can help where possible and give you as much inspiration, guidance and advice including a recommendation of suppliers. This will also be really helpful if you are planning a birthday or anniversary celebration. Dont forget to check out our complimentary wedding planning service at the bottom of the page.
