Dee anD Debs ‘We had so much great feedback from our guests. Everyone from all different parts of our lives blended together so well.’ 62 » pink weddings magazine O ur tip for other couples is don’t leave all the prep till the last minute, as it’s stressy enough. Remember it’s your day – you are celebrating your union so make it about what you both want, not what others might want. Have fun with organising the day; the run-up to it is all part of the extended celebration. If any friends suggest taking a video during speeches or first dance, take them up on the offer, as you’ll see things you never did on the day and it helps keep the memories. after all the months of preparation and stressing about which dress and shoes, who to invite, which wines and what food, Dee says it couldn’t have gone more perfectly: ‘I had a fabulous day from the ceremony onwards. Up to that point I was quite nervous and worried whether it would all go to plan. ‘The highlight of my day was seeing Debs walk into the Regency Room looking a million dollars, with her father. I felt very emotional, proud and lucky in that moment, and from then on I had a ball!’ Debs adds, ‘I was nervous, excited and emotional about having all my family and closest friends with us when we said our vows, sharing our love and acknowledging our wonderful partnership. ‘My highlights were having my father walk me into the room, acknowledging our union and wanting to play a special part in the day – and his emotional speech later. Then seeing Dee as I walked in, looking so amazing with her beautiful smile. ‘another high point was being able to stop off at the band - stand to take some stunning pictures with our amazing photographer ally, with the backdrop of the sea and the old pier.’
