Strutting the aisle like a Hollywood red carpet with thousands of eyes fixed on you is some couples’ idea of Heaven – but don’t worry if this sounds more like wandering through the fiery pits of Hell to you! Everyone deserves to be loved, and everyone deserves the chance to express that love in their own way. If you’re more of a privacy-appreciating introvert than an attention-loving extrovert, you might be dreading the prospect of sharing your innermost feelings of love in front of a roomful of people – only to then have to keep them all entertained for the rest of the evening.

However, especially in these forgiving modern times, you don’t really have to do any of that. You don’t have to invite everybody you went to school with, just as you don’t have to hire a cheesy disco DJ to persuade all the grandmas and grandads to get up and dance to the birdie song. All you really need to create some fond memories of your not-too-big day is your partner, then whoever else you want there with you, and whatever music you want playing throughout.
