    S5 E9: HOW TO WRITE YOUR OWN WEDDING VOWS

    S5 E9: HOW TO WRITE YOUR OWN WEDDING VOWS

    Are you planning to write your own wedding vows? We both decided to, and as we had celebrant led weddings we had free reign on what we could have said! This was both a blessing and a curse when it came to getting our feelings on paper.
    This week we speak about why we opted to say our own vows, how doing so made the day more memorable and how we actually wrote them! Because believe me, the sentiment is lovely but actually getting them done is hard work!
    WHAT YOU'LL HEAR
    - How to find the inspiration to write your wedding vows.- Why googling your vows isn't a bad thing!- The process Kerrie and Russell and Katie and Jack went through to write their vows.- Why being yourself in your vows is the most important thing- Why saying our own vows made our day more meaningful.

    We've all made that sweeping statement... 'Maybe we should just elope!' when you get exasperated from wedding planning. But what if eloping really was on the cards?
    This week Stacey joins us to tell the story of her wedding day. She and her now husband headed off to London to get married and didn't tell a soul until a few days beforehand.
    WHAT YOU'LL HEAR
    - Why Stacey and Adam decided to elope- How they broke the news to their families- Whether she regrets not having a big wedding- How the format of their day panned out and what they invested in- What traditions they still kept even though it was just the two of them!

    S5 E7: HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WEDDING MUSIC

    S5 E7: HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WEDDING MUSIC

    We've got a fun one for you this week as we're chatting all about music for your big day! Nearly everyone we meet has told us that they struggled with choosing those few special songs to represent them on their wedding day.
    Most notably we're talking about the song you'll walk down the aisle to, the one you'll both walk up the aisle to after getting married and of course the first dance!
    Unless you're one of those couples who have been lucky and naturally found 'their song' (Like Katie and her husband Jack!) It can be tough to wade through and find something suitable. So this week we're telling you how we did it, and which songs we settled on.
     
    WHAT YOU'LL HEAR
    - The songs Katie and Jack and Kerrie and Russell chose for their wedding days.- How to choose your songs if you don't have 'a song'- Dealing with nice songs that have sad lyrics!- How choosing your music can turn into a fun activity!- Unlikely ways to discover new music and re-visit old music

Sound needs fixing

Nice chatty style with English voices but horrible sound quality. Randomly high and low volume, echo, babies crying and dogs barking!
