So at last the rules have changed, you are now able to have small weddings with a reception afterwards, as long as the venue is Covid compliant and you still practice social distancing.
If a small, intimate, private classy wedding is good enough for Princess Beatrice why don't you have one and buck the trend for large and lavish.
The Princess Beatrice wedding yesterday may have had the Queen present, which you can't have, but in every family there is someone who is treat like a queen so make sure they are invited.
30 guests can mean you qualify for a lot of wedding venues special offers of a package, it could leave you extra cash to spend on your honeymoon or extra money to decorate or furnish your home.
A small wedding is so personal and enjoyable as a couple you won't need to feel you are rushing around all day trying to engage and chat to loads of people, you can spend time with your guests in a meaningful way.
You could be the trailblazer and start a new trend among your friends - after all as the saying goes 'good things come in small packages'.

I have just completed an update on LGBTQ rights, very interesting, especially the information on non binary and the use of language, even though I am a member of the LGBTQ Equality weddings directory I learnt something new today. If looking for a wedding to suit you be sure to check out LGBTQ views and attitudes, you deserve the wedding you want and the wedding that reflects your life and love as a couple. Inclusivity all the way.
Well after yesterdays post about weather and outdoor weddings, I can not believe the amount of strong winds we have had here in the North East overnight and today, any veil would have been wrapped around the bride, mind she would have been warm! confirms my wedding blog yesterday about considering the weather if choosing to wear a veil, but the blustery weather would have made some spectacular wedding photographs.
I love doing outdoor weddings, the beauty of using a celebrant is that you can have your outdoor wedding anywhere : a field wedding; a farm wedding; a beach wedding; a garden wedding; a roof wedding. Just think about it. A personalised unique ceremony exactly as you want it. Think about the weather and have a back up plan; use dried flower petals for confetti so that they flutter to the ground giving time for that fabulous confetti wedding photograph; consider using bubbles instead of confetti - the children love this; think about the wind - do you really need a veil??? let your guests know it's is outside so they need to think about their shoes and hats; sound projection/ music check equipment is available so all your guests can hear the ceremony. The possibilities are endless.
When I am planning a ceremony I am not constrained by my own beliefs or values, your wedding ceremony or your family members funeral ceremony is entirely lead by your own beliefs and values, if you want cultural elements - have them, if you want religious / faith elements - have them, if you want a combination of belief systems - have them combined. It is so exciting to value and celebrate our differences and incorporate them into any celebration in our lives and that is what I strive to do in every ceremony I craft for couples and families. I always remember the ceremonies I write are not for me or about me they are always about YOU. It is your celebration let's do it the wat you want.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
