Planning a wedding as a more mature couple
Continuing our theme of hearing the wedding planning experiences of those who are planning a wedding deemed a little 'outside of the norm' by the wedding industry, today we talk to celebrant Juliette (Juliettebytheseacelebrant.co.uk). Juliette is currently planning her wedding at the age of 56 and here, in a very funny and frank interview she shares her experiences and frustrations at planning a wedding a little later in life. What should be a purely enjoyable journey has been slightly tainted by suppliers making assumptions, friends questioning decisions and a sense of not being 'seen' by the industry as a whole. An insightful episode but also one full of joy and laughter.

Planning our Interfaith Wedding
Mussara married her husband Roy just over 5 years ago in Essex, and Ross had the absolute pleasure of capturing the day. Here, Mussara talks candidly about how they both met, her family's reaction to her marrying a non-Muslim man, and which British wedding traditions they were relieved not have incorporated in their day. A truly inspiring listen.

Lisa Vine works with schools, businesses and charities across Leicestershire and the UK for all their LGBT+ training and advocacy needs.

Planning one of the first weddings post-Covid restrictions as a couple with Downs Syndrome
Earlier this year we had the absolute pleasure of interviewing James and Heidi about what it was like planning one of the first weddings that took place after the lifting of some of the Covid restrictions. James and Heidi are a wonderfully positive couple, so obviously in love and a great example of how having the right outlook helps you to navigate through life's unexpected moments. They also happen to have Downs Syndrome. This is undoubtedly one our favourite ever podcast episodes, and regardless of whether you are currently planning a wedding or not, you will be uplifted, inspired and beaming from ear to ear once you've listened to this fabulous interview.

Diversity, Inclusion & Weddings
After a longer than planned hiatus, Ross and Heidi are back discussing all things weddings. This season we're taking a much deeper look at weddings for people who are underrepresented in the wedding industry; be that due to their age, race, sexuality, faith or ability. In each of the upcoming episodes we chat to couples who have previously, or who are currently planning their wedding, and have had to overcome extra hurdles due to being part of (for want of a better phrase) a minor group. This first episode outlines why diversity and inclusion is so important to us and why this season we wanted to really shine a light on the weddings that don't get half as much attention in mainstream media as they deserve. For a list of resources to help plan an inclusive / diverse wedding, please visit our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram.

Wedding Ceremony Wisdom
We love celebrants on Your Individual Wedding, they are always so full of wonderful stories and ideas for a truly unique wedding. We were lucky enough this week to be joined by Deborah from True to You Celebrancy who is an incredible lady. Combining life as a mental health nurse with her role as an award-winning wedding celebrant, Deborah shared a wealth of wisdom with us, including why most wedding traditions aren't actually legal requirements. A great episode to listen to if you wish to discover just how limitless you are when planning your wedding ceremony. Oh and this week's Big day Balls Up features a disorientated owl.

When to start wedding dress shopping
Once the venue is booked and you know which photographer will be capturing all the wedding memories, your attention will more than likely turn to wedding outfits. Previously on the show we've chatted with tailors and bridal designers to give you an idea of what to look out for when finding your style. In this episode we chat to Rami from Coco Bridal Boutique who shares her wisdom on wedding dress shopping timelines (especially during a pandemic) and the benefits of scheduling a virtual consultation. You can find Rami at https://www.cocobridal.co.uk and if you're a modern bride looking for kick-ass style you'll love her!

How Covid19 Impacted Our Wedding Plans
Well 2020 has been a shcocker hasn't it? This pandemic has hit everyone hard, and has had a devastating impact on the wedding industry and couples planning their wedding. In this episode we chat to two brides-to-be about the process of postponing their weddings and how this has impacted their mental health. We loved chatting to Emma & Jodie and really appreciated their openness and honesty.

The Joy of Intimate Weddings
Ross & Heidi return! WIth news of several successful Covid vaccines emerging in the past few weeks, we kick off season 5 of the podcast with some much needed hope and optimism. Whilst we don't know when weddings will be back in all their large-scale glory, we are feeling confident that smaller weddings will be able to resume in 2021 and so we share with you what can make intimate weddings so wonderful. If you've had to reduce your guest numbers, don't despair as there are so many positives to planning your intimate wedding and in this show we list them all. We also get to share our brand new feature 'Big Day Balls Ups' (complete with a cheesy jingle) where we share some wedding day bloopers that still make us laugh years later. We'd love you to share your big day balls ups too, so do follow us on instagram (www.instagram.com/your_individual_wedding) and DM us your stories.

What about weddings?
2020 has been a devastating year for the wedding industry and the couples we so passionately work with. Couples have had to face the disappointment and stress of postponing their wedding plans (sometimes more than once) and suppliers have seen income plummet with very little support from the government. In short we have all been feeling ignored and undervalued. In fact we've even been called unviable and told to 'Get a better job". Step in the team behind #whataboutweddings; an incredible campaign that has created purpose, a voice for couples and their suppliers and a lobby for clarity and support from the government. If you have been impacted by the poor treatment of the wedding industry then please listen to Annabel and Tamryn discuss, with great passion, not only the work they have done so far but also some exciting new developments and plans. As the ladies say "There is no plan B" and we will continue to fight to get you heard. For resources and support please visit; www.whataboutweddings.co.uk

On the day wedding coordination
What is on the day wedding coordination and how can it help your stress levels go down and your enjoyment levels rocket? In this episode, I chat with Nina from Occasion Queens who shares what makes on the day wedding coordinators different from wedding planners and venue coordinators, and how she helps to troubleshoot little fires on the wedding day before they put a glitch in proceedings. Nina has also been a huge part of the #whataboutweddings campaign, and lobbying for a clear road map for the wedding industry and couples planning their wedding during this pandemic.

How we planned our LGBTQ Wedding
Usually I chat with wonderful wedding suppliers who share their wisdom from years of working in the wedding industry. This week, we switch things up and speak to a couple who 8 years ago were planning their perfect day. Gavin and Ian look back on their special day(s) and share what made the occasion so special and what (if anything) they would do differently. A great listen for couples currently in the midst of wedding planning dilemmas.
