Lizzie & Tom Wedding Feedback


Q. As a newly married couple, what would be the best advice you would give to a couple just starting out on their wedding planning journey?

A. Best advice would be to plan in advance and give yourself the most amount of time to get things booked – this took the stress out for us.

Q. What is the best memory you have from your wedding day?

2- Best memory was seeing Liz walk down the aisle

Q.  Why did you decide you wanted a video recording of your wedding day?

A.  We wanted to remember as much of the day as possible and I think photos were great but we thought the video would capture more – which it did!

Q.  What memories did the video provide which your photographs didn’t capture?

A  Seeing the guests arrive and also seeing the guests in the courtyard after the ceremony

Q. Why did you decide on Finishing Touch for your video?

A  You had a very good website and good reviews – also you were recommended by the venue (I think)

Q. Would you recommend Finishing Touch?

6 – Yes the video was excellent and exactly what we wanted

Q. Why did you choose Packington Moor?

A  The venue was the only place we saw that we liked – it was very private which we liked and also quite different to other venues. I would definitely recommend it – the staff were excellent

DIY Crepe Paper Crackers

Its just 12 days to Christmas, scary! and I can not think of any other activity that’s more synonymous with Christmas festivities (other than mince pies, Christmas pudding, turkey and stocking fillers), than pulling a cracker before getting stuck into  an oversized roast dinnerl!. But we all know what a disappointment the cracker content can be, so why not create your own  with something that’s personal to you, or at least will be well received – chocolates always works for me!

What will you need?

Tissue paper roll (according to the size you want them to be)
Double-sided tape
Cardboard (not too thick)
Elastic bands (x2)
Ribbon (to compliment your crepe paper)
Crepe paper (any craft/stationary shop sell these)
Sweets (preferable select wrapped sweets)
