The Telegraph recently reported on a wedding conundrum that may become more and more prevalent as people move around the globe – namely, organising a wedding after emigrating.
Cathy Adams has found herself in the difficult situation of moving to Hong Kong and subsequently becoming engaged. With her wedding planned for back home in England, she wrote a piece for the Telegraph giving hints and tips on how to manage such an awkward situation.
A key pointer, according to Adams, is to get organised and delegate those things that the bride and groom can’t do. From abroad, the music and entertainment can be booked, though the menu will require either a flight home or a trusted friend with good taste buds, she explained.
An advantage of being abroad that was referred to in the article was this: wherever people are, there is likely to be something that can be sourced cheaper than in the UK, cutting down on costs. However, Adams stressed that it’s important not to panic about the minor details of planning the wedding.
Finally, she suggested that the internet connection used should be top notch, as this is the nerve centre of the planning operation.
Although her tips are specific to organising a wedding from abroad, the advice could be applicable for Brits who live on home soil.
Naturally, one fundamental part of pulling together the intricacies of the special day is ensuring that a top wedding photographer from Liverpool, or the surrounding area, is hired to record everything.
