I have already married couples at level three so I am very conscious of the rules and regulations that need to be maintained so can guide you with what is needed for your ceremony.
You have set your big day. Now to decide what type of theme you would like for your wedding. You can have a subtle flavour of your theme throughout your wedding or go all out.
I recently was luckily to marry Lisa and Kane (pictured) in a medieval style wedding at a real castle! Most of the guests were dressed up and it was great. My bespoke wedding ceremony I created for them reflected the theme. I have a steampunk wedding coming up which will be fun!

The setting was breathtaking in rural South Canterbury for Anna and Hamish. Grace Bolton, from Grace Bolton Photography, captured some fantastics memories of this gorgeous large, rustic wedding. Their whole day flowed beautifully. Anna and Hamish had a bespoke, personalised ceremony that featured a live singer, a horse and their fur baby
There were some clouds in the sky which helped cool the searing sun, creating a beautiful summers day. Anna arrived on a magnificent horse, led by her father, followed by her bridesmaids and fur-baby, Macy.
