Politely asking for a cash wedding gift... “A wishing well is an old tradition, for we are in love and are totally smitten! We haven’t asked for presents but a cash donation, to help us out with our future generation. Or a holiday abroad, now that would be cool, to sit by a bar and drink by a pool. All that we ask is for you to donate, in this special bucket, that would be great! When you’re giving so kindly just please remember, we’ve shared this day with you, all of us together.” Poem by Cybel’s Vintage Hire (can be altered to suit each couple)

Unity Rain signifies that your marriage will last. A knot that becomes wet is extremely hard to untie - therefore, when you “tie the knot” on a rainy day, your marriage is supposedly just as hard to unravel!

BWrEiAtTiHsERh

Tears Rain on your wedding day is good luck because it symbolises the last tears that the bride will shed for the rest of her life.

Renewal Rain signifies washing away bad memories or occurrences and the start of a new chapter in your lives. That refreshing scent after the rain, just as the sun peaks through the clouds, that “new day” feeling is where this belief came from.

According to Alanis Morissette, rain on your wedding day is ironic but don’t dispear if the droplets keep falling! If you believe in the superstitions of many different cultures then rain can be a sign of good luck... Fertility Rain signifies a good chance that you will have children. Rain ultimately waters the ground and lends to fertility, thus allowing growth of plants and vegetation. This was always a big deal in communities based around agriculture.

Having glorious weather is something not even the most organised of brides can guarantee. If it happens to rain on your big day then embrace it! Pull on a funky pair of wellies, grab a pretty umbrella and create some care free, unforgettable memories!

Pam&Tony

HOW WE MET Tony and I met through a mutual friend called Tracey, she had a feeling that we would be great together. One day, Tracey decided to work her Cilla Black match making magic and introduced us, our relationship grew from there! THE PROPOSAL In January 2011, Tony and I jetted off to Whistler, Canada for a skiing holiday. One evening we were enjoying a horse drawn sleigh ride by candle light, unbeknownst to me this is where Tony had planned to propose. He got down on one knee in the snow and of course I said yes! Tony had planned every little detail, he chose my sparkly engagement ring himself which I was over the moon with and even asked for my dads permission beforehand, which my parents really appreciated. 20


OUR SPECIAL DAY We had a very small registry office wedding in December 2011 but Tony always promised that I would one day have the big white wedding that I had always dreamed of. That day came when we re-affirmed our wedding vows at St Elizabeth’s House on June 8th 2013, we called it ‘our wedding celebration’. I was able to wear a beautiful wedding gown and have bridesmaids, the full works! MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT Having the two most special men in my life together on my perfect day. My Dad walking me down the aisle and seeing the look on Tony’s face when he saw me coming towards him as his bride, it felt amazing! 21


THE THEME It was a lovely sunny day in a marquee on the lawn. The theme was an afternoon tea party with bunting and beautiful vintage china.

Tony’s daughter and her husband 22


FUNNIEST MOMENT Tony and his best man Harry have known each other for several years and have great banter between them. During the best man’s speech, I had to wear a special pair of glasses that made Tony look like my crush, Peter Andre!

SENTIMENT My Grandma was very special to me growing up and is sadly no longer with us. I really wanted her to be a part of our day so I attached her wedding ring to my bouquet.

FIRST DANCE From this moment by Shania Twain. It has such beautiful words and makes me emotional every time I hear it! HONEYMOON We relaxed on a wonderful two week Mediterranean cruise with Royal Caribbean.

New Year Resolutions

January is the most common month to begin wedding planning, could that be from festive engagements? Or determined brides wanting to get organised? Either way, use 2014 to set yourself some unique wedding inspired, new year resolutions.

3. Live in the moment It’s so easy to focus on what is to come and forget about enjoying the here and now with your fiancé. Don’t forget why you are doing all this wedding planning. Your relationship is ultimately more important than your colour scheme!

This year I will… 1. Get in shape to walk down the aisle Kick off a new workout regime and set yourself an aim to drop a dress size, lose a specific amount of weight or tone up your bod. Walking down the aisle feeling fabulous will be worth all the hard work and exercise! 2. Learn to delegate Your fiancé, bridesmaids and family are all on hand to help – so let them! Draft a list of everything you need to complete and see who would be best to tackle them.

4. Not become a bridezilla Don’t let your wedding planning turn you into a demanding monster... Always look on the bright side!

TOTAL BRIDAL FIT If you want to:

• Feel more confident and look fantastic on your wedding day • Start your new life together, in shape and with lifestyle habits that will set a standard in your life • Lose fat and tone and build muscle • Sculpt your physique and get the shape that you want • Improve health and flexibility • Increase strength and stamina

I married in July 2013 and in the lead up I had some personal training sessions with Mark, he supplied me with a food plan and exercises. I stuck to the plan as best I could but must admit there were a few nights out and some kebabs and curries but the weight seemed to fall off, I had to stop as I was worried I was going to be too small for my size 6 wedding dress!

Mark can come to you, so you don’t have to find the OUR time to travel GY RIN TNER B to the gym, PAR OR F which he finds E! FRE works best for all his clientele.

I had been looking for a quick way of getting fit and keeping trim, my hours at the gym seemed to keep the weight off but I didn’t ever seem to tone. I started Runfit almost a year ago, by 4 weeks I noticed a difference and within 2 months I had lost inches and dropped a dress size. It’s hard work but for an hour of pain you burn fat for about 12 hours after.

I had a slight lapse after the wedding but the definition did not significantly disappear and the weight did not pile back on. To date I have lost 1.5 stone, dropped 2 dress sizes and have had to buy a whole new wardrobe. The sessions are fun and the people there are great. The exercises are tailored to suit all ages and abilities and it is quite addictive!

Whether you are looking to get healthier, tone up or lose weight to get into that wedding dress I highly recommend Total Fitness & Health Sarah - very happy customer

If you are spending a substantial sum of money on the wedding of your dreams, you deserve to walk down the aisle in the best shape of your life!

My partner took me for a lovely meal at the Grecian Taverna in Plymouth. When we arrived we were seated next to a table of 20 women celebrating a birthday, we were asked if we would like to move to another table, to which he readily said yes - I found this very strange. He was also looking shifty and quiet - now I know why! He lovingly made a cake which was presented to me as the song he had chose Al Green ‘Lets stay together’ played. He got on one knee and popped the question right there in front of the whole restaurant! I happily said yes.

Regal In Red

With Valentine’s Day around the corner everyone is seeing red - red fashion that is! Choosing red for your big day not only sets a passionate, romantic mood for your affair, but it’s also a smart fashion choice as red pairs beautifully with white, black and metallic shades. If you’re looking to add extra shine, pair your little red number with metallic pumps and a shiny clutch; and for moodier winter receptions, pair long dresses with black sandals and a shiny black shawl.
