We spoke to a local wedding planner to find out where you should start planning Credit: www.lucygphotography.co.ukQ – We’ve recently got engaged, but due to lockdown, we’re struggling to plan anything! What should we book first?

"Congratulations and welcome to the world of wedding planning! Start by creating a rough guest list, so you know your potential numbers, then begin looking at venues. Everything pivots on that choice, from the decor and food to the accommodation and budget. I suggest getting this box ticked asap. Once you’ve found your dream venue, you can begin to tick off the next big items, such as catering, photography and the celebrant/registrar. Think about what are your essential elements and how getting the right supplier will affect the event. Keep in mind that the ones you want may get booked up quickly, so get cracking!"
