"The best advice I can give is to have the wedding you want that reflects you as a couple. Focus on the things that are important to you: if you love food have the seven-course meal; if you’re outdoorsy, utilise your venue’s outdoor space with your photographer; if you love flowers have the archway and huge arrangements!

"I find that smaller weddings really highlight the love between a couple as well as the sense of happiness and joy amongst the family and friends present. Most of all, enjoy every minute. It sounds like a cliché, but the day goes so fast, so don’t get hung up on minor details."
