12 months later in October 2015 and talking about getting engaged, it was after day out in Greenwich back in the flat where Martin proposed.

During wedding planning, Brides said that their highest priority is their wedding attire, followed by the reception venue and the catering. Reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities.
Within one week of the reception, 78% said they would have made entertainment their highest priority,
65% of couples who chose a Band to entertain at their wedding said, if they had to do it again, they would hire a Disc Jockey,

A few tips to finding the right ones for you......
Do Your Homework. You'll get much more out of a meeting or conversation with a wedding professional if you do a little background homework first. Spend some time on the internet or talking to friends who've recently been married. Find out what the services are available. Get an idea of what you like and don't like. Wedding websites and chat rooms can be a great resource. This way when you meet with a wedding professional you'll be able to ask better questions and have an idea of what to look out for.
