Q - Z of Queer Weddings | Honouring Departed Loved Ones

Quite often weddings are sweet-sad occasions on which the absence of someone really loved is felt acutely. I have performed many weddings where a parent of either party has passed away recently or even a long time ago. Sometimes it’s doting grandparents who are missed, or a special friend. On an occasion like a wedding these loved ones are conspicuous by their absence, and it is comforting to invoke their presence with special rituals.

How to Start Your Wedding Budget with these Easy Steps.

When you start your wedding planning, the budget is often hardest thing to figure out. Whilst there are must have items, working out what exactly you can afford can be tricky. It’s highly likely that you haven’t planned a wedding before and with so many elements that are on a tight timeline it can be a daunting task. Here is our guide to working out a rough budget and by answering some of these questions you can start to define one that’s realistic for you.  Book in a date night and take this blog article with you so you can discuss your ideas and roughly settle on a few things before you start approaching vendors or your preferred venue.  It’s important to be on the same page when you start looking around our directory for vendors because at the end of the day if you arrive to a wedding planner without a solid idea of what your vision is, it may end up being a waste of time and likely frustrating.
