James and Sam Hayden-Harler - Husband and Husband wedding planners from Ever Ever After have, very kindly, taken the worry out of planning your wedding day! Below is a 12 month countdown which will help everything run as smoothly as it can...
We talk about Same-Sex Marriage, Equal Marriage and Same-Sex Weddings - these are some of the phrases which enable our LGBTQ community to be assured that our venues and contributors are "Gay-Friendly". In an ideal world and hopefully soon, we could just use the words "Marriage" and "Wedding" with no fear of discrimination - sadly there are a few suppliers, in the wedding industry, who aren't in total agreement with the new equality laws. Ours are. All of our venues and contributors to our blogs support same-sex marriage 100%, are "Gay-Friendly" and you can be assured your enquiry will be met with nothing but positivity.
James and Sam Hayden-Harler got married in July 2016. They have, very kindly, shared their story with us! Read more about this lovely couple and how they are also, uniquely, Husband and Husband Wedding Planners!
Many congratulations to Adam and Daniel who were recently married at one of our Gay-Friendly Venues - Holne Park House in Devon. Here's their story...
Your complete guide to the ultimate alternative to confetti at weddings - Bubbles!
Did you know that the tradition of throwing confetti at a wedding originated in Italy and it was to bestow prosperity on the happy couple. Did you also know that prior to paper confetti used today, flowers, petals, grain or rice were also used.
Towards the end of last year, a National radio station; Gaydio (aimed towards the LGBT market place) ran a competition for Gay Friendly businesses who felt they'd benefit from National radio coverage. The competition was sponsored by "Powownow" a conferencing system supplier and the prize was £10,000 worth of a radio advertising campaign.
Big thanks indeed to Nicola Winslade from Bishopstrow Hotel & Spa - one of our stunning, gay friendly, venues for sharing her most FAQ's with us.
