Planning of an Amalfi Coast Wedding

The wedding of Hannah and James took place in a beautiful old town, nestled high on a cliff, overlooking the dramatic views of the stunning amalfi coast.

The minute they saw the pictures of the venue, they knew it was the perfect place for them.

Myself and the bridal party arrived on location two days before the wedding. The appointment for the declaration of marriage was booked for the next morning and the hair trials and manicures were arranged for the afternoon. The couple had booked a beautiful, traditional villa with terraces for eating alfresco and incredible views. It was set away from the bustle of the town and gave them all a chance to relax and unwind.

Type of venue – Are you thinking of a beach wedding? It sounds so romantic, and what great photos, but you must consider a couple of things. Firstly, most beaches in Greece are not privately owned, meaning that there will be other people aro…

Top 3 reasons why you should renew your vows

There is a growing trend for couples who are already married to make a new commitment to each other and renew their vows, often spending much more on their vow renewal ceremony than their original wedding! One award winning celebrant looks at the main reasons for the increase in vow renewal ceremonies.

⦁ Your first wedding was out of your hands Whilst the term “arranged marriage” usually applies to two partners being chosen for each other by their families, an “arranged wedding” describes families taking over the organisation of the ceremony from the couple – both can be very good reasons for a vow renewal further down the line. Arranged weddings How many couples have had the organisation of their wedding taken out of their hands by well-meaning parents who are often footing the bill? Perhaps the guest list included distant family members and friends of the couple’s parents with a “traditional” ceremony at a “traditional” venue. Sound familiar?!?
