Planning a wedding can certainly be an exciting time, from picking the cake to choosing the entertainment, it's full of fun tasks to check off a to-do list. However, wedding planning can also come with a host of negativities such as worrying about money and feeling anxiety about family politics on the big day.

We are not particularly religious and wanted something that reflected us, our personality, and what we had been through. We settled on a hand-binding ceremony and set about finding the right words. When planning a wedding, you think of all the big stuff, dress, photographer, cake, venue, etc, but how much time do you set aside for vows, speeches, and toasts? It's one of the things that people remember the most and can make the day extra special.

By hiring a professional, you can ensure your dog is part of your day without having to worry.
"Here at Thea's Lakeland Walks, we have great working relationships with an abundance of hotels across Cumbria and surrounding areas, ensuring your dog gets exceptional care whilst fulfilling its role as a very important pet."
