Cass and Matt knew they wanted to get married somewhere with lots of greenery, plus a band was essential, and to have lots of fun!
There is so much to think about when you plan your wedding. Do you go ultra modern, contemporary hip, or look to history with all the traditions around getting married?
Did you know that wedding rings were used as currency in the Middle East prior to coins being used, and were a sign of a person's wealth?
Or that in ancient times the wedding ring was thought to protect the bride from evil spirits?
And for the ancient Roman bride, wedding rings were made of iron, but after time a gold band came to symbolise everlasting love and commitment in marriage, often carved with two clasped hands - they lightened up a little.
