I do, I do, I do... with a prenuptial agreement in place!

Not just reserved for celebrities and millionaires, prenuptial agreements are becoming increasingly popular with modern couples too, no matter their financial status. With the uncertainty 2020 has brought to the economic and employment market, it can only be seen as a positive step to raise awareness of the importance of prenuptial agreements and eliminate the stigma surrounding them. Millennials, in particular, need to be made aware of the significance of prenups, as they aren't necessarily something to be viewed negatively or avoided, it's simply a sensible way to protect yourself and your finances.... read more

Getting married? Make sure you debunk your mortgage before tying the knot

Getting married? Make sure you debunk your mortgage before tying the knot

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes...... a mortgage! Yes, it may not sound that romantic, but owning your own home is high on the agenda for many nearlyweds-to-be. While wedding plans may be top of the list, lots of couples picture themselves settling into married life in the comfort of their perfect home without always considering the complexities that need some thought before achieving homeownership – such as being self-employed, having bad credit or being a single parent. Applying for a mortgage can feel like information overload, and hard to separate the facts from fiction. There are many misconceptions around mortgage lending, which can be harmful as many people are left feeling insecure about their financial situation. To help couples navigate the word of mortgages, Paul Coss, Co-Founder of Haysto, has debunked five common myths:... read more

Planning a post-Covid wedding

Planning a post-Covid wedding

In lockdown 3.0 most of us would be hard pushed to remember a time when we could plan a wedding without having to consider the necessary social restrictions. Usual headaches like seating plans and flowers seem minor in comparison to having to contend with whether The Big Day can even go ahead or how the guest list can be reduced enough to comply. Even with the initial successes of the vaccine rollout, we're all still facing a long road ahead, before we can get back to normality.... read more

Government announcement – what we need to happen

Government announcement – what we need to happen

With less than a week to go until Monday the 22nd February, the whole wedding industry waits on Boris Johnson's announcement to outline the roadmap out of lockdown. Here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we have completely and whole-heartedly empathised with the whole of our wedding community, from the couples who have had to postponed their weddings on multiple occasions, to the businesses that have had to adapt to new restrictions and regulations to overcome such dire prospects in the last year. The UK wedding industry normally hosts 20 million wedding guests and 252,000 weddings every year, worth more than £10billion to Britain's economy. Unbelievably despite these astronomical figures, many wedding industry professionals have had little if any support from government financial schemes over the course of the last year.... read more

Guest post: How Maunsel House wedding venue in Somerset has dealt with the pandemic

We hand it over to Somerset wedding venue Maunsel House to hear first-hand how it has not only coped, but thrived during the pandemic. "The Government guidelines of just 15 guests being able to attend a wedding have crushed thousands of couple's dreams of a big wedding in the last year. The wedding industry has faced increased hardship by this decision and for venues like ours who are used to hosting large weddings with 150 guests plus, each weekend has been left empty and lonely with the pandemic rules."... read more
