Nicholas and Jolanta’s wedding day was a fabulous dream come true from. Each moment was beautiful in its own way. “It’s hard to choose a particular moment, they were all incredible. The speeches were full of emotion and love and the photos were loads of fun. But a very special moment would have been taking 20 minutes time out half way though the reception to have sunset photos with my new husband. It gave us time to reflect on the day so far and be alone.” Jolanta reminds brides-to-be that the wedding day is all about you and your husband. She says, “don’t feel pressured to do something you don’t want. Take time to stop and soak up your day, it goes by so fast. If your day allows, spend 10 minutes alone with your new husband and reflect on what has happened. That for me was one of the most special moments of the day.”
