Wedding rings:
It is iusual practice to exchange rings at a wedding ceremony! Double check that you have them on you on the day!! If you don’t have a pocket in your outfit, entrust someone else with the rings, either Mum or Dad or the best man is the usual choice!

Personalized Vows:
The vows are a big part of the wedding ceremony. Once you have written down your vows, make sure you have a copy with you. Why not use a small card as a cheat sheet? Ask the celebrant or the person officiating the wedding to hold onto it until the right moment.

Remember always speak from the heart, make your vows meaningful and sincere, however, remember to save some special words for the toast or speech later in the night.

Wedding Ceremony Music
Nothing beats live music. It can create an electric atmosphere and help create the magic moment that will stay in your memory and the memories of your guests for the rest of your lives.
