A Simple and Relaxed Wedding Video Package

Seeds of doubt set by well meaning friends telling you how much they love theirs or how much they went on to regret not having one. Or the thought of having one makes you cringe a little but it’s that ‘what if’ worry that keeps bringing you back… I’m talking last minute ‘wedding video’ worries. Wouldn’t it be nice to have something to show off the day to people who couldn’t be there? Not only the guests who couldn’t make…

How a Wedding Band Will Add Magic to Your Wedding

I know when we got married we were really torn over whether to have a wedding band and DJ or just a DJ. We LOVE music. We LOVE live music. But after planning everything else when it came to picking a band we soon realised we should’ve debated it sooner! We couldn’t find a band free that we LOVED just as much (serves us right for leaving it so late for an August Bank Holiday weekend wedding!) so we missed…

My assistant Paul head over to see Iain and his groomsman nearby in Birkenhead. It was a brilliant contrast of glamourous…

How To Impress With Your First Dance

The first dance – How to¬† impress and make it memorable for both you and your wedding guests! A romantic sway is great if you’re not keen on showing off your best moves. Even then you can practice a few spins, the crowd pleasing ‘dip’ and the big kiss finale to make it more fun and memorable if you’re feeling a tad nervous. Sarah and Jonathan got the kiss just right at their wedding at The Racquet Club in Liverpool.…

A Hard Days Night Wedding

I honestly don’t know where to start with this amazing couple. Not only did they pick possibly one of the coolest wedding venues in Liverpool (the Hard Days Night Hotel), have amazing live music planned throughout their wedding (and why not, Liverpool is the Capital of Music) but they are just an awesome couple and I reckon after reading this and watching their film you’ll soon agree.
