Planning Your Big Day
(From a minister who has officiated at hundreds of weddings and services of union)
- Start with a nice clean piece of paper (lavender is good, but any kind will work). Down the left side of the page, write the numbers 1-10. Now – without stopping to think about it, fill in this page! Write down the first 10 things that come to mind in response to this sentence: “I love (my partner’s name) because . . . “ Set this piece of paper aside.
From the Universial Life Church Seminary newsletter:
Many centuries ago, before the women's rights movement, men who had decided upon a wife often had to forcefully take her with him (or kidnap her) if her family did not approve of him. The tradition of a "best man" probably has its origin with the Germanic Goths, when it was customary and preferable for a man to marry a woman from within his own community.
When women came into short supply "locally," eligible bachelors would have to seek out and capture a bride from a neighboring community.
GayRites.NET has assembled a large selection of mixand & match, semi-custom and fully custom wedding-cake figurines and toppers by artisits Lily Tsai, Helyn Studios, Renellie and MiniMe. If you're looking for a keepsake of your big day, look no further than www.GayRites.NET/toppers.htm.
Just came across a terrific new online magazine at http://www.wedpix.com/ called WedPix. It's published by the Wedding Photojournalists Association, which has a comprehensive search engine at http://www.wpja.com/index.htm for locating this style of photographer worldwide. The magazine has some great articles including Hiring A Creative Professional, Budgeting Wedding Memories,
and Deprogramming Wedding Subjects.
Is anyone out there looking for a wedding photographer for their upcoming wedding?
I'd be keen to cover your wedding photography for you; easy going, laid back and relaxed approach to your wedding photography-but can still politely boss you about(just a little) to get just the pictures you need of your big day!
I'm based in London but also cover Devon, Sheffield and the whole of the UK and abroad if need be.
