Remembering to soak up your big day, and staying true to you as a couple is often a challenge when planning the details – there are so many ideas, options and opinions to take in! Bride Claudia shares some fantastic advice after her Whimsical Garden Wedding, with a particular emphasis on keeping what is important to you close to heart, and enjoying the day to the fullest!

“Planning a wedding is a challenge for even the strongest relationships. Don’t stress if you have a blow up every now and then – it is totally normal – but try and be as kind to one another as possible. Don’t sweat any of the stuff. Big or small. Your guests won’t notice. The most important thing is the ceremony – it’s where you vow to one another how you’ll approach this relationship for the rest of your life. Get that right. Make things as relaxed as possible. If you don’t enjoy sitting down for three hours eating a three course meal while people make long speeches, don’t make your guests do it! Forget tradition if it doesn’t suit you. Make new rituals that are important to you.”
