Q. How can we create a romantic and intimate atmosphere for our ceremony?

A. Fay Wert says: Firstly, set the scene. For a good 20 minutes before the ceremony, entertain your guests with live atmospheric music of your choice, whether it's popular, classical or just your favourite tunes. This will immediately enable those close to you feel involved. Alternate the more gentle tunes with other more lively ones so that there's a contrast, but ensure the bride's entrance is a slow number. Winter weddings in particular, have an ambience of their own if you're clever with your lighting. Whatever the season, keep your colour scheme simple, and coordinated, to create unity, and flow. Flowers, décor, lighting, as well as music, are all key to your special day's tone and success.
