Brides and bridesmaids traditionally carry flowers on the way to and during a wedding, but you may also want to make sure there are some beautiful floral displays during the ceremony and reception too. You can hire some incredible wedding florists here, or for something a bit different, how about a wedding flower wall?

The Ceremony:

The ceremony itself is the main event of the day, and the time when you officially become a married couple. If you’re not going for the traditional church wedding, you’ll need to organise a celebrant who’s officially licensed to marry you both. We’ve compiled a list of the UK’s most sought after wedding celebrants, which you can hire here. You may also want some music playing quietly in the background during the ceremony, or when guests are arriving. How about a harpist or a wedding band?

You’ll want to treasure this day forever, so one of the most important people you’ll need to hire on your wedding day is a professional wedding photographers or wedding videographers . These highly skilled artists will be on hand to capture special moments throughout the day, from the bride getting ready at home, to your first kiss as a married couple, through the reception.  You may also want to consider something a bit more fun and unconventional, such as a wedding photo booths – a huge trend right now and really popular with all ages.

The Reception: 

Once you’ve both said “I do” you can get on with the serious business of having fun. There’s a lot to organise here, from wedding catering to tableware hire , mobile bars to DJs. Depending on your venue, you may also want to hire a wedding marquee.

Have you thought about toasts? Hiring a professional toastmaster will add a bit of pomp and ceremony to the occasion and ensure everyone’s raising their glasses at the right time! 

You could also consider something like wedding post boxes so guests can leave you messages, or games to keep everyone entertained between the ceremony and the sit down meal. If you’ve got younger guests coming, some children’s entertainment is a good idea –  how about a party bus or bouncy castle?

Food and Cake
