When it comes to finding the perfect wedding venue for your nuptials, there are quite a few things to consider. These are the things I consider when helping a couple find their perfect wedding venue.
Do you want to get married ‘at home’ (where you or your partner grew up), where you live now, a UK destination that means something to you or abroad? You need to think about all the pros and cons of each option and decide which one is best for you.
Now, don’t get me wrong…..lace wedding dresses are beautiful and I don’t blame anyone for falling in love with them. But when you’ve worked in the wedding industry for as long as I have and you have seen the same style of dress for such a long period of time, they all start to look alike!

I really don’t think that way. There are a lot of different things you should consider when deciding on a supplier.
Certain products and services are judged on your own individual taste. For example, a cake design you love may be another person’s idea of a cake from hell. A wedding photographer you admire may not shoot in the style another couple likes. If you book a photographer that charges £3000 just because you think they must be good to charge that price, that is not value for money. But if you book one for £1500 because you love what they do, who is to say they’re not as good a photographer? As long as the supplier you are booking is fully insured and has testimonials from past customers you can make your decision based on their work. I judge quality wedding suppliers on their product or service and reputation, not on the price they charge. Continue reading
