Many of our customers are brides who are looking for an unusual or unique wedding gown, a destination wedding dress for getting married on the beach, or, in the case of older brides, an unusual wedding gown which will look sufficiently bridal, without wearing ivory. Some customers want a wedding dress that can genuinely be worn again after the wedding. The one thing they all have in common is the desire to create a unique wedding that reflects their individuality.
This desire often extends to the wedding reception too. We get many enquiries from brides who wish to book the Catwalk Cafe as a venue for a Vintage Afternoon Tea Wedding Reception. Some have even expressed a wish to hold the actual ceremony in our fashion themed cafe. I had thought that this wasn’t possible until I met Sarah Harper-Little, a registrar from Gloucestershire.
Sarah revealed that brides are not only limited to Churches, Registry Offices or Approved Venues, but providing the necessary legal paperwork is completed with the relevant authorities, the actual ceremony can take place almost anywhere!
Sarah explained “Many brides are simply not aware of the fact that they can create a truly personal wedding of their dreams, be it a romantic setting in their back garden, or saying “I do” at 20,000 feet in a private jet!”
Formally a Deputy Superintendent Registrar and Registration Officer in Gloucestershire, Sarah now runs Cotswolds Ceremonies covering weddings, civil partnerships, baby naming and renewal of vows. Sarah will not only conduct the ceremony, but will assist couples with choosing the wording to make their promises more personal and meaningful on their special day.
