    Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot

    pre wedding photo

    The photographs and wedding album are just as important as every other item on your wedding checklist.

    After you have researched and chosen your photographer, why not express your excitement (and probably a little bit of nervousness) in some pre wedding photo shots?

    These photos could be taken either a few days before your wedding or even as part of your engagement celebration weeks before. This informal photo shoot doesn't have to be at your wedding venue, it could be at one of your favourite locations where you might consider the scenery to be beautiful and want this to be incorporated into your pictures.

    One Shouldered Bridal Dress

    one shouldered wedding dressEvery bride wants her day to be extra special, to be something that everyone who attends will remember with pleasure for a lifetime. Everything must be perfect from the buttonholes to the venue and unique, exciting and different from everyone else's.

    For the bride this is of the utmost importance when choosing her dress. The dress has to make her feel and look beautiful as well as comfortable and make everyone who sees her gown jealous that they never thought of being so daring or original with their own wedding gowns, or indeed to inspire brides to be.

    There is no more dramatic or unusual design of dress which stands out above all the rest than a one shouldered wedding gown.

    Grooms - Reduce your Alcohol

    beerThere is just as much information available to assist a Groom with his upcoming wedding as there is for the Bride-to-be.

    If you are interested in finding out how you can become and stay healthy before your wedding or perhaps you have agreed with your partner that you will follow a new diet regime before your special day, then one of those benefits will include reducing the amount of alcohol that you consume!

    A Groom who reduces his alcohol intake before his wedding will certainly feel the benefits in the lead up to the day.

    Catholic Wedding Ceremony

    catholic weddingBeing one of the oldest organisations in the world, the Catholic Church can be dated back over two thousand years.

    There are believed to be well over a billion people in the world who follow the Catholic religion with around one million of those people residing in the United Kingdom.

    As the Catholic faith is one of the most established religions, it is commonly known that the Catholic wedding services are at the higher end of strictness with regard to its rules and regulations surrounding a wedding ceremony.

    Wedding List Survival Guide

    giftWhilst at university I worked part-time as a Bridal Consultant helping couples compile their Wedding Lists. Unfortunately all too often a couple would arrive on a Saturday and the woman would drag her husband-to-be reluctantly into the department store.

    She would then proceed to ask him  his opinion on some wine glasses, his response would be 'eh' as he wouldn't really be listening, but rather be trying to catch the latest football score on the radio.

    Their time in the shop together would inevitably end in an argument with the Bride-to-be feeling her husband-to-be was not being supportive enough in his contribution to helping choose items for there Wedding List.

    To avoid this, here is a pain free survival guide to how to get the most from the experience of using a department store to choose items for your Wedding List.

    Honeymoon in Cyprus

    cyprusEver since Anthony gave Cyprus to Cleopatra as a token of love, this luxurious Mediterranean island has been stirring passions and attracting honeymooners in search of a picturesque, sun-filled hotspot.

    Cyprus covers over 3,500 square miles and is the third largest island in the Mediterranean. The landscape is varied with golden coastlines, pine forests and even snow-capped mountains in the winter months.

    One of the most popular resorts is Paphos which is the home of the Tombs of the Kings. Its modern costal area is populated with traditional tavernas, stylish cafes and chic bars, whilst the old town is perfect for exploring its historic past.
