One of the things I share with my couples when I meet them for the first time is that my wife and I were in their shoes just a few months ago. I know what it's like to trawl the internet for suppliers, asking friends for recommendations and watching video after video. I know what it's like to want to make your dream wedding happen, while still working within a budget.
I had been performing on stage and hosting for friends for as far back as I could remember. Still, the prospect of accepting payment for my services was daunting—it added pressure. Even more nerve-wracking was the fact that both weddings had seasoned, well-established planners and coordinators at the helm.
