How to choose the perfect wedding DJ

How to choose the perfect wedding DJ

Music is key to generating a great atmosphere for your party. Customising the songs to suit everyone's tastes is important, so look at the age range attending and consider what would please everyone. A band will usually play for one to three hours, so there will be time between sets when your friends and family may still want to be entertained. Therefore, having a DJ is a good idea, given most weddings last five or more hours.... read more

When to book your wedding photographer

When to book your wedding photographer

Before the pandemic, most couples would book their photographer around a year before the wedding, but this has all changed over the past year. I'm currently getting bookings for 2023 and 2024 as I think couples are finding it hard to get a date for 2022 due to the knock-on effect of weddings being postponed over the last 16 months. Nearly all of my availability for the popular dates in spring, summer and autumn particularly during school holidays in 2022 were booked up months ago. To get your first or second choice photographer, you will need to book early!... read more

Verity and Oliver tied the knot in a romantic ceremony at St Tewdrics House

Verity and Oliver knew each other from school but starting talking properly during a night out. "We began dating and have been together ever since," says Verity. "Oliver proposed at Celtic Manor on the 19th May, 2018, after we'd been together for 10 years. I had spent most of the day with my friends watching the royal wedding with absolutely no idea that he was planning to pop the question that evening. He told me we were going for a meal, but when we went for drinks in the lounge he surprised me by getting down on one knee. He had arranged for our parents to be there, so they celebrated with us and booked for us to stay the night. Oliver had the ring made at Diamond Centre Wales and incorporated some of the diamonds from his nan's ring into the design."... read more

What to ask a magician before booking

What to ask a magician before booking

Chat with the magician and ask about their experience and available options. A large percentage will perform close up magic, so you may need to shop around for different options. Ask if they have worked at your venue and, if so, what works well there. Price is often the biggest question. Some start as low as £100, and others range up to £1,000. It may be hard to understand why there is such a difference, but the answer is that a magician can do more than just tricks, with added value, experience and availability, the price is generally higher.... read more
