Your Sussex Wedding - Decmeber 2022/January 2023 (Issue 100)

My top planning tip? Let the groom do it! Haden planned the majority of our wedding and it was amazing. As long as you’re happily married to the person you can’t spend your life without by the end of the day, then you’ve done what you set out to do. Everything else is a bonus. We went to the Ambre Hotel in Mauritius on honeymoon for a week. Haden planned and booked the entire thing and it was absolutely incredible. We saw grey whales, swam with wild dolphins, did a walk under the sea and went parasailing. I can honestly say, I married my best friend. I look at the photos and in most of them I have that silly smile that you only get when you’re truly happy. Blending our families officially was perfect. I knew it was right because there isn’t anyone else I’d want to spend the rest of my life with.
