In fact it was when a group of us wedding folk were chatting over a coffee one day, that we found we were all being asked for help in arranging a small wedding or an elopement.  We realised that, whilst the big wedding with all the trimmings is great for many couples, there would be equally as many who want to marry in a  simple yet still authentic, stylish and beautiful wedding ceremony.   Many couples – you are probably one of them if you are reading this – don’t want to spend a house deposit on their wedding but they still want a memorable start to their marriage, they still want beautiful photos of their wedding day to look back on and share with family and friends – and children in years to come.
