Our wedding was very much a series of favours! One cousin did the flowers, another took the photos, one of my sisters made my dress and did my make up, friends of my parents did the catering at cost and - best of all - my dad and I were driven to the wedding in a Bentley belonging to the undertakers’ that my friend worked for! We celebrate our 30th anniversary at the end of September... My niece recently began working as a wedding planner. At a team meeting, they were asked to write down the thing they love most about their job. The responses were things like “Seeing the look of joy on the groom’s face when he sees the bride” and “Knowing how much in love the couple are.” My niece resisted the temptation to write “My commission”.
