Money as a wedding gift ?

In between all my weddings I found myself being interviewed on BBC Radio Leeds! We were discussing how much should be given as a gift!

My advise for anyone who finds them wondering what is the correct amount ;

Give what you feel comfortable with. If you are questioning if you have been mean, you probably have.

Spend what you would spend on a gift.

If you want to buy a gift, then do! It is still ok.

Remember it will only be you and the bride and groom who will know how much you have given. If things are difficult for you at the moment don’t be afraid to say ! You can always offer to take them out after the wedding or invite them for Sunday dinner when things get better.

Oh and another :)

If you would like to use this quote or if we can write a recommendation for you on your site please let us know. We would like to recommend you to future brides and grooms.

Again, a huge thanks to you both for your advice and for simply thinking of everything, and the gaps in between.

Libby & Paul.


Thank you

I received this message with a beautiful box of chocolates – A very special thank you –
Dear Sally
Thank you for all your help towards making our wedding a very special occasion. We really appreciated your efforts moving the flowers and making the day flow smoothly

Why so special ? Because she wasn’t a bride of mine – just did it because the florist had boobed and I didn’t like seeing a bride disappointed ! (why? because I can !)

So much to say – so little time!

I think I will work backwards over the last few weeks.

This weekend we had two weddings to oversee, starting with Libby and Paul married at Newburgh Priory. Newburgh Priory has the most amazing setting next to a lake – on the hills you can see the famous white horse.

Libby and Paul where married in the house itself which is crammed full of history – if you have never seen it let me assure you it is amazing.

The wedding breakfast was then held in part of the main house that was damaged by fire and just part of the outside walls remain, the roof has gone but worry not they were in a marquee with clear sides and top to lets of light in.

It was a truly amazing day – Congratulations Libby and Paul Meigh



The second wedding overseen by myself on Saturday, was of Carleen and Andrew Booth, who were married at Goldsborough Church.

The drinks reception was held in the family grounds of Mr and Mrs Booth snr. It was a beautiful afternoon and lots of Pink Champagne went down very well.

A marquee was the setting for the wedding breakfast and followed by lots of dancing and drinking. A pork pie made an amazing wedding cake and went down really well with a huge amount of cheese and biscuits.

I made the wonderful (even though I say so myself) seating plan.

A wonderful time was had by all – I believe the last guests left sometime after 3am (phew)
