The RAF Grooms are on Planning Overload!
When we first started planning the wedding it started really well, we knew what we wanted and what we didn’t want in our wedding.
Since then as time continues to dwindle we seem to be behind the drag curve in respects to our timeline. Mostly because I’m away with work;and James is currently working six days a week. (The sixth day is his training day in preparation for becoming a Special Constable with Wiltshire Police, as he leaves the RAF in May)
Our biggest controversy has been the guest list which has been critiqued, shall we say, for the lack of family we invited, as it became clear some family members felt put out by being left out, despite not seeing them for years.
We both have large families, a large circle of friends together and also separate so it was always going to be difficult. We think and hope it is resolved now.
In terms of actual wedding plans we managed to get the majority of it sorted immediately, but being typically gay and influenced by fashion (James mostly!) and very picky (Me!) we would change our minds a lot and still do.
We were good in booking a band, a florist and the venue with ease. Actually James booked the venue before I even saw it! (Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire) However this guy knows me well and he chose perfectly. It was a castle built to keep the Welsh out for Henry VIII, trouble is it hasn’t worked as James’ family are all Welsh!
The Florist was a lovely lady who runs the flower shop in town and very competitive prices, so with a massive thanks to my mum and her husband Shaun who have agreed to pay for the flowers, we have lovely array of red and white with touches of blue.
So really it’s the finer details that has been left to be organised which are the finalising the catering for the evening food, the decorations, the wines and the table linen. So if any of your readers have any good knowledge on table linen then let us know please! (We are just wary we don’t want to hire the cloths when they cost the same as buying one (this is the picky side in me!)
Oh and the wedding cake – how can I forget that part?! We aren’t sure yet how we are going to tackle this. Whether it is an actual cake made for us costing hundreds of pounds designed to our every needs, or it is a few M&S fruit and sponge cakes decorated to perfection. But with a 100 invited to the day with further 80 in the evening, we know it has got to be good.
We still have ten months to go, so we are confident we will get the smaller but trickier items squared away in good time. It would be great to see what your other readers and couples have done in terms of wedding cakes and table linen etc.
Don’t worry boys! You will get it sorted! Its can get pretty overwhelming. Looking forward to hearing more x

Well this Cwtch is just gloriously romanic isn’t it! That hold, the closed eyes, the field, the sun setting, the tear down her face….aaaahhhh dreamy.
Aaron and Sarah got married a few weeks ago, but this was taken on their engagement shoot, shot by the fabulous David at Anderson Photography. Over to David to tell us a bit of how this image happened……
Aaron and Sarahs Moment
The one of of them both, Sarah had a tear running down her cheek as the wind was so intense.
The wind was so intense it brought tears to her eyes, so they pulled eachother in for the cwtch of all cwtches xxx
We have to agree David, its just stunningly breathtaking! Thank you so much for sharing x
