One big exhale later, and we were delighted that we had SOMETHING we can start shouting about and we're certainly here to be the ones to do it - yipee!... read more

Getting married? Make sure you debunk your mortgage before tying the knot

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes...... a mortgage! Yes, it may not sound that romantic, but owning your own home is high on the agenda for many nearlyweds-to-be. While wedding plans may be top of the list, lots of couples picture themselves settling into married life in the comfort of their perfect home without always considering the complexities that need some thought before achieving homeownership – such as being self-employed, having bad credit or being a single parent. Applying for a mortgage can feel like information overload, and hard to separate the facts from fiction. There are many misconceptions around mortgage lending, which can be harmful as many people are left feeling insecure about their financial situation. To help couples navigate the word of mortgages, Paul Coss, Co-Founder of Haysto, has debunked five common myths:... read more

Planning a post-Covid wedding

In lockdown 3.0 most of us would be hard pushed to remember a time when we could plan a wedding without having to consider the necessary social restrictions.

Government announcement – what we need to happen

With less than a week to go until Monday the 22nd February, the whole wedding industry waits on Boris Johnson's announcement to outline the roadmap out of lockdown. Here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we have completely and whole-heartedly empathised with the whole of our wedding community, from the couples who have had to postponed their weddings on multiple occasions, to the businesses that have had to adapt to new restrictions and regulations to overcome such dire prospects in the last year. The UK wedding industry normally hosts 20 million wedding guests and 252,000 weddings every year, worth more than £10billion to Britain's economy. Unbelievably despite these astronomical figures, many wedding industry professionals have had little if any support from government financial schemes over the course of the last year.... read more
