Where did you get married? > We got married at Edinburgh Corn Exchange.
Would you recommend this venue to others? > It was the ideal venue as everything was in the one place. The train station is only a few minutes walk away, bus stop right outside and lots of parking available. Hannah our wedding coordinator was fantastic and made sure our day went to schedule.
What month did you get married? > We got married in May 2016.
How far in advance did you start planning your wedding? > We started planning just over 2 years in advance.
How did you decide the date of your wedding? > We got married on our anniversary of getting together.
What kind of ceremony did you opt for? > We didn’t have a religious ceremony (not sure what kind our ceremony was classed as?). It was a registrar.
After you had chosen your date and booked your venue, what was the first thing you booked? > We picked our date then booked our photographer!
Did everything go smoothly with the planning of the wedding or did you come across a few stumbling blocks? > We had a few issues for our wedding. My husbands wedding ring was too small & he only realised a few weeks before.
My makeup artist cancelled 3 days before the wedding. I’d just advise everyone to confirm things!!
If you could do it all again, would you do anything differently?> I wouldn’t do anything differently – we had the most amazing day ☺️
What 3 tips would you pass on to anyone just starting to plan their wedding? >Make sure your day is what you want.
Invite the people who you want to be there.
It can be really easy to get caught up in all the hype – there are so many things you can book. Candy cart, photo booth, ice cream stalls etc etc. I’d advise to pick things that will add to your day.
Who were your 3 favourite wedding suppliers that you used? >
Got to be Emma Gray Photography, The Edinburgh Corn Exchange and Blue Parrot who provided our LED dance floor.
Did you go on honeymoon? If so, where did you go? Tell us a little about it to help other couples who are trying to decide where to go > We went to Tenerife for a week for our honeymoon. We picked there as we wanted somewhere we could chill out during the day & go out at night.
Thanks for sharing your day with us Sarah, and glad to see I made it to your top 3 supplier list too 🙂
