We spoke to Sutton Coldfield-based celebrant, Louise Goode from No Ordinary Celebrant to find out more about her company.
"It's been an amazing year with perhaps the highlight being my trip to Crete to do a pirate-themed wedding on a ship in the Bay of Heraklion. It was wonderful to create a themed script full of laughs and guest participation and add all the finishing touches, like a treasure map certificate and ancient-style ceremony script. I loved taking on a role and dressing up, the only thing missing was Johnny Depp, but perhaps that was a good thing or I might have died of joy!
"I'm looking really forward to working with more couples and planners who have concepts for weddings that require a celebrant that isn't afraid to get stuck right in."

Here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we do love a good book to get our teeth into - not literally of course, cake's great for that - and the description for this new novel Before I Do from Sophie Cousens already has us hooked! What would you do if the one that got away turned up the night before your wedding? Audrey is marrying Josh; steady, dependable Josh, the love of her life. They share a flat and a bank account, and it's the only relationship that Audrey's ever had that feels like something she can put her trust in. But romance should be full of fireworks, and as the big day approaches, Audrey's found herself wondering if Josh really is 'the one'. So, when Josh's sister Miranda arrives at their rehearsal dinner with Fred - Audrey's 'What If?' guy, the man she met six years ago and had one amazing day with but never saw again - Audrey can't help but see it as a sign.

Catherine and Chris met at school. "Chris is a year older, so we didn't know each other, but we got talking on MSN and MySpace," says Catherine. "We hit it off straight away due to our shared sense of humour and love of watching movies." Chris popped the question during a holiday to Somerset. "We had always talked about getting married, and although we weren't officially engaged, we had discussed 2022 as a potential date," shares the bride. "I was at university until 2021, so we always talked about getting engaged after that. I was surprised when he popped the question during a holiday in 2020. We booked the trip for my birthday and spent the week in a lodge near the town of Wells. We went for a walk to Ebbor Gorge, and overlooking the beautiful scenery, Chris got down on one knee!

With around 60% of UK households owning a pet, it's no surprise that who gets custody of any animals can be a key area of negotiation when relationships break down. Megan Bennie, a solicitor specialising in divorce and family law at Kent law firm Furley Page, said: "For many people a pet is not just an animal, it's a fully-fledged member of the family, so it's no wonder that pets can be a particularly emotive topic for clients when relationships end. Unfortunately, a pet's treatment by the law hasn't kept up with the way they are generally viewed by their owners."

The team behind this styled shoot wanted to create something big, bright and bold. "We wanted the photos to be fun and colourful with a touch of elegance," says organiser Sarah Day from One Day Film Productions. "We began planning in December, 2021, starting with key contacts: Annabel Sarah Bridal and Anthony Hall Photography. We quickly found a venue stylist, White Violet, and exchanged thoughts on how we could bring together all our ideas. I wanted to find start-up companies in the local area, like myself, who were starting their wedding business journey or needed a stronger social media presence. The teamwork shown in this group of suppliers has been astounding. We gelled well together, and I'm super proud of how it all came together to produce such amazing results."

Whilst this wedding season, most nearlyweds-to-be will be considering invites, dresses, venues and flowers, an increasing number will have pre-nuptial agreements on their minds before they walk down the aisle. Market research from leading consumer legal services company, Slater and Gordon, shows that more than half (53%) of unmarried couples would only consider getting married, if a pre-nuptial agreement was put in place. The research is following the news that Britney Spears and her new husband, Sam Asghari, signed an "iron-clad" prenuptial agreement before their wedding, last month. It is understood that one of the conditions of the document is that if the couple were to separate, Sam wouldn't be entitled to any of the tens of millions that Britney earned prior to their marriage.

Rebecca and Huw met during their first year of university. "On our first night out, I tried to buy Huw a drink and was very disappointed to find that he only wanted a Coke," says Rebecca. "Needless to say, things went well and we've remained joined at the hip ever since. We were surprised to find that our families only lived 20 miles from each other and we had friends in common despite having never met! Huw's sense of humour and charm had me hooked from the get-go. He very quickly became my best friend – he was always there when I needed him, he made me feel safe and he could always be relied upon to make me smile, even when I didn't feel like it."
