MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT
Bride’s Answer: So hard to pick just one!! It has to be saying our vows, as that is what the day is all about. Dancing the hokey cokey in the evening, with everyone including my grandparents, came a close second though!
Groom’s Answer: Definitely the vows – it’s the most important part of the day! The singing during the signing of the register (Tracey Wright (family friend) singing Ave Maria) was also very special.
Place: Malaysia – beautiful place, food and people!
WEDDING ADVICE Don’t forget what this is all about – no matter what you organise for the day, the important thing is getting married and being able to share that moment with family and friends. Everything else is just a bonus.
