Five minutes with… Celebrant Sarah Nelson of Merseyside-based Moments To

I wanted to use my knowledge of English literature in a more creative way, and that's when I heard about becoming a celebrant. There are no second chances when it comes to conducting a wedding ceremony, so I made sure I trained fully. Now, I get to meet amazing couples and create joyous and fun ceremonies for them.

Paws for thought – why having a ‘pet-nuptial’ agreement is the ultimate preparation

Couples who have adopted a pet during the pandemic can save themselves the unnecessary heartache of losing shared pets by arranging a 'pet-nuptial' agreement in case – obviously here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we truly hope it's not the case – of future separation with their partner. For custody of furry friends, there is currently no official legally binding measures in place for what happens to pets after a breakup. Legally a pet is seen as an asset, and as with any assets in a divorce, ownership will be decided by the court - however having a prearranged agreement in place, commonly known as a prenuptial agreement, can assist the court to make a decision.

Inspired by dry-January, event planner Liz Taylor has top tips for an alcohol-free wedding

January is traditionally a time for good intentions and new, healthier beginnings. Be that swapping out meat for plant-based Veganuary, dusting off the running shoes, or cutting out alcohol for Dry January. With more than 20 per cent of the UK population now describing themselves as teetotal, the idea of a dry wedding may be more popular than you think. And what could be better than waking up hangover free on your first day as a married couple? For others, living and marrying without alcohol has a religious or cultural meaning. So, if you're planning a wedding in January, or indeed any month of the year, it makes sense to give guests some alcohol-free options.

Saving the day

Heaton House Farm, like many wedding businesses, has been turned upside down by the Coronavirus pandemic. Pre-Covid, this family-run venue employed 60 staff, 30 had casual contracts, which had to be terminated, and the owners were forced to make three valued team members redundant. Determined not to cut anymore in the face of declining wedding bookings they decided to take creative action. The owners have taken the bold decision to take on the lease for a local pub, giving their team the chance to have a job and stay with them. Happily, the pub is now open with their catering staff all fully employed and due to start serving delicious dishes. We think this move to protect their staff deserves a huge round of applause. Heaton House Farm is a beautiful venue situated on Cheshire's border with Staffordshire. It boasts breathtaking views of both counties offering a wedding-day setting that dreams are made of.
