Who Walks Down the Aisle at a Gay Wedding?

Wedding traditions remain an important component of many gay and most straight wedding ceremonies.
So who walks down the aisle at a gay wedding?
The short answer? 
Whoever you want.
What you choose to do and celebrate within your own wedding should be entirely up to you and your partner. Tradition shouldn’t be seen as something that must be adhered to or – in the case of LGBTQ ceremonies – adapted mindlessly. 
One of the best things about planning a gay wedding is that there are plenty of opportunities to customise both the ceremony and reception to reflect your own individual personalities. The important thing is not to let family or friends who are fixated on what’s traditional to unduly influence what it is that you want to do on your big day.

Askham Hall is Hosting a Wedding Venue Showcase in February!


Gilwell Park in Chingford is Hosting a Wedding Show in February

We were excited to hear that the gorgeous Gilwell Park in Chingford is hosting a wedding show in February. Set in 108 acres, the estate is home to the 17th century Grade II listed White House, and we just know you’re going to fall in love with it.
Gilwell Park has 40 on-site bedrooms with enough space in the Main Hall to accommodate 150 guests for the wedding breakfast.

Entry is free and there’s a welcome glass of chilled prosecco.  This is your chance to view this stunning venue a…
